Carefresh Custom Hamster & Gerbil Natural Paper Bedding is made specifically to meet the unique needs of hamsters and gerbils. It's made with natural reclaimed paper fiber pieces that are 25% smaller than average, which makes them the perfect size for safe burrowing. Your small pet will stay warm and dry with this super-soft bedding that expands up to twice its volume and is three times more absorbent than wood shavings. Carefresh uses a special manufacturing process to ensure that this high-performance bedding is virtually dust-free so both you and your pet can breathe easy.
As with any substrate, there is a potential risk of impaction if your pet ingests a sufficient amount of bedding. Observe your pet and seek veterinary care if you suspect impaction of the GI tract.
When changing bedding types or brands, it is best to mix old and new bedding, changing over the course of 7-10 days.
