Best bedding to use? possible allergy

4950 Views 28 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  Cait
Ive been putting hay in with my mice and using shaving of different sorts, lemon scented/lavender from pets at home
Some of my mice seem to be wheezing and there eyes seem to be a bit stuck shut when they first wake up, one of my mice is about to go to the vets for some baytril

Is there anything I can use for bedding which is just plain and simple, wont cause them to be allergic or anything??

we use mega zorb for the litter - and straw for bedding, the mice tear all the straw up and make it into small shreds! :D we have used wood based cat litter before too. As far as the straw is concerned - we always make sure we treat it for mite infestations as a preventative measure.

ooo someone told us that shredded paper can give mice little paper cuts - so it may be something to look out for. Ive not used shredded paper myself - but its always good to pass on any knowledge! :D
yeah weve had no problems at all with megazorb, its great and competitively priced at our local farm and pet centre. :D

Katytwinkle - comes from my nickname everywhere else being twinkletronic! - but on here i wanted to use my Actual name too - hence the "katy" bit :D

we have a few varieties between myself and my partner and all of them seem to like megazorb - whereas i think some werent as fond of the cat litter - and even tho all our mice are in our shed - cat litter is noisier. :D
