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??

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

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.
Im going to use shredded paper untill next week and then I'm going to get a bag of the horse substrate and store it at my parents
When you get your horse substrate, you could still give them a nice mound of shredded paper to make a nice nest in :p
Megazorb was £6.29 but with the increase in vat , fuel etc :evil: its gone up too £7.00 a bag still good value though.
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.
