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??

I would give a lot more shredded paper than that if you have more - they will make some great nests with it. And is that one of those gnawing mineral block things I can see in the first picture? If so, do your mice actually use it? In my experience rodents neither want or need them, so I wouldn't bother replacing it when it's time to throw that one out.
Aubiose is my favourite, I think it's £8.50ish from our farm shop. More expensive than other brands but definitely worth it and it goes further.
