Little warning about hay cottages

Hi everyone. So it’s been a stressful couple of days. I noticed Sooty wasn’t eating properly. One minute it looked like he’d got some food stuck, the next he’d pick food up and drop it again. Long story short, the vet gave him a quick anaesthetic today and saw a piece of his gum had been cut leaving a hole and flapping skin. The only thing I can think that may have caused this is the Woodland hay cottage I bought recently that they love to gnaw on. Obviously I can’t say that for sure as I’ve bought them before and never had a problem but other than those they don’t have much else in their cages. Only bought them cuz they were half price and ended up paying over £200 at the vets lol.
