Yeah, i think they’ll be okayUsually pellets are a different issue than shavings—due to the reduced surface area there’s less space to release phenols, making them a pretty viable option for bedding (although they are a little hard on the feet). Often times these pellets are made of pine.
And the issue with it being hard on the feet i think will be okay for a little, because of how they crumble into soft bedding when you add hot water and spread it around a bit. Even though they dissolve like that i think the water hinders any dust from being released into the air, which is why it is so good for horses who are allergic to pine, or have asthma and such things.
I will try to include a picture of their cage as well so you all can see what i’ve been talking about. Keep in mind this is what it looked like after i had cleaned it up a bit, before this it was basically a mountain of pee and poo
