I'm using Carefresh litter right now, but I have a couple problems with it.
First, it's not as good as I've found wood shavings like pine to be when absorbing odors. But I know pine is dangerous for bunnies because of the dust and fragrance oils, so I can't use it. But my house is very, very...
Yesterday I became the happy owner of 2 six-week-old mice :D They are sisters and came from a pet shop because I couldn't find any local breeders, but it was a really nice shop. I've had hamsters and rats before but never mice, I just have a couple of questions I was wondering if...
I was wondering what sort of toys I should buy for my soon-to-be goos. Since there isn't any Degu toys, I didn't know if I should go with chin, rat, ferret, or some rabbit toys. Also, what do goos like to play with? I mean are they tunnelers like hamsters, or what? Do they like ferret hammocks...
The pet store I buy my bedding at was out of stock this weekend, the Degu's cage really needed to be cleaned, so I found some cheap stuff at a different store. Both brands say pine but the new stuff is really aromatic, I'm not sure it's ok for the degus. I've heard to use "kiln dried pine...
Cedar and Pine Shavings are Toxic to ALL Small Animals!
Cedar and pine shavings, the bedding choices most commonly used for small animals, have been found to contain toxins!
Both cedar and pine contain phenols-that's the stuff that makes them smell good. Phenols are caustic, poisonous, acidic...
I'm curious to what you all use for bedding/litter in your degu habitats. Also are they in a cage or Tank?
I mix a pine pellet litter which i use for the rabbits too, with some aspen shavings.
I have corn cob for all my other critters and it is great, my worry was the Goos may eat it.
So I have 5 degus, 3 girls and 2 boys. These cuties were dropped off at the animal control this morning in a tupperware container, with NO holes in the lid :(
So far I have named the girls Cici, Pipa & Tiki.
Can we say FRIENDLY!
Yes that would be Cici on my head...
on my sholder...
My BF and I got suckered in by their cute antics - but the advice we got at the pet store seems ALL WRONG!
First, they were (and currently are, at least temporarily until next paycheck) being kept in a 10 gallon aquarium. I would like to keep them in it a little longer so that it is easier to...
ive been lookming at the past threads and websites because i just bought pine wood chips. seems 2 me that its mixed opinions on using pine woodchips... is there a difference between kiln pine and pine? ive never heard of kiln pine before and thought it would be the same as the regular pine bedding.
Okay. I have had a few rats before, but none have been males. I have asked my mom for ANOTHER rat, but this time a male. I know a bit about them, and I plan to keep him in a big, black wire cage kinda like a Martins. It has wire flooring that I will replace with a plastic base. The...
what size cage can i use for a rabbit. she is pretty small. i think she weights about 3 lbs or so. i would like it to last her a couple of years. also, what are some cage nessesities?
-water bottle (are any bowls acceptable)
is that all?
What do you think of this? Carefresh Pet Bedding
I like it because it can be used for several different kinds of animals!
I use it for my ferrets & am much happier with it than with other beddings/litters I have used in the past.
Overall- it does an excelent job of absorbing odors & keeping...
I talked to the lady and we're picking up the bunny, Frodo, tomorrow afternoon! So, what bedding is best? Food? She said she has enough for a few days but I'm going to need to buy some. I'll go research, but I trust you guys so I'd like advice from you. :) Ryland is so excited!
anyone use bedding that doesnt attract bugs? i've used corn cob and cedar chips and after maybe not even 5 days, there are these little nats... its not like they're cages never get clean, i mean, at least once a week but i still get these stupid little bugs.. any suggestions?
as many of my crazes have started, this one started at noon at my LPS.
the same as with my ferret and my bettas and my frog, it was my LPS.
i swear they're becoming millionairs off me!
yes, at noon today i fell in love with a little boy-hedgie. i held him a bit, he chittered...
