When we had hamsters, I used quite a fine sawdust in their cage. As we also had a budgie, I would use sawdust on the bottom of the birdcage instead of newspaper. After a few weeks I noticed that the budgie was shedding lots of little skin flakes. I asked the vet about this when he went ... Read review

"When we had hamsters, I used quite a fine sawdust in their cage. As we also had a budgie, I would use sawdust on the bottom of the birdcage instead of newspaper. After a few weeks I noticed that the budgie was shedding lots of little skin flakes. I asked the vet about this when he went in to have his nails clipped and he said that birds shouldn't have sawdust of any kind in the cage as it is an irritant and they breathe it into their lungs.

scented sawdust UPDATED

Advantagessmells, and looks nice

Disadvantagesbit more expensive

"Ever tried opening up a bag of compressed sawdust and then trying not to make a mess breaking it up so you can put it in the cage??? I had to put that in because it seems to be a common problem! I’m just glad we now have laminate floors and no carpets, I just use a dustpan and brush now instead of finding the vacuum cleaner. It’s a lot easier, especially when you need to clean hamsters out regularly. There are different types of ..." Read review

for rats

Advantagesvalue for money

Disadvantagescould create allergies

"i didn't find this bedding particulary good for my two rats because the dust made them sneeze quite a lot so now i prefer to use just newspaper. It may be better for smaller rodents such as hampster or gerbils. It was however good value for money but not if you have any animals which may be prone to allergies which could result from the dust in the bedding. The rats did however find it quite comfy and liked digging in it but they found it hard to ..." Read review

Not suitable for little furrie's

AdvantagesNone at all

Disadvantagesharmful to small pets

"Compressed sawdust is exactly that, dust which has been compressed, its not good for any caged pet in my opinion. With most caged animals it will get into ears and eyes and can cause major irritation, and without knowing the cause it can go undiagnosed until it can prove fatal. Rabbits have a major problem with it, as they will breath in the dust it can cause lung problems. ~~ It is sold because there is a market for it, but all to often pet owners ..." Read review

Gerbils

AdvantagesMany years of entertaining antics, love, devotion and something to tell your troubles, worries and spend your time with

DisadvantagesNone at all

"Gerbils make fantastic pets. They are Very affectionate animals and rarely bite. Unlike hamsters they are Very lively they never seem to sleep. In the past i used to buy hamsters but they always want to sleep and if they're disturbed they tend to bite. When i had my gerbil he used to attract my attension all the time to be played with and let out of the cage. They love to run and jump around and they especially enjoy chewing things. Toilet ..."
