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??

Aubiose is another good substrate, but I don't know that they sell it in any less than a 20 kilo bale which may be no good if you only have a few mice.

I like Aubiose. It does come in huge sizes, but it smells nice and keeps well :D
I have always used Aubiose.
Occassionally I fancy trying something new out, and I do, but I always come to the conclusion that Aubiose is better and go back to it.

What about cotton wool ?
Bad idea....
The tiny fibres of cotton wool can cause nasty damage to a mouses foot if they manage to wrap around.
When you get your horse substrate, you could still give them a nice mound of shredded paper to make a nice nest in :p
