Gerbil Bedding

To keep your gerbil happy and your cage nice and fresh, you'll need to get some good gerbil bedding to line your cage with. Chewy carries all the best gerbil bedding types and brands, so you should have no trouble finding a safe and comfortable material for your gerbils to burrow, play and sleep in.

The best bedding for gerbils will be dust-free, absorbent, and comfortable for your pet, and it should have a good structure for burrowing tunnels into, as well. Most of the gerbil bedding for sale that fits these criteria is made of paper, which has the added benefit of being compostable, biodegradable and lightweight. Many paper bedding brands are made from recycled pulp, too, for an added eco-friendly aspect. You can find paper bedding in many different textures and piece sizes, and it comes in lots of fun colors, as well. Shredded paper can also be used as an economical pet gerbil bedding material, but make sure to use ink-free or non-toxic printed paper and avoid newsprint, and know that it won't be as absorbent as manufactured paper bedding. Hay mixed into paper bedding is another popular substrate choice, as it combines the absorbency of paper with the fine nest-making and nibbling properties of tasty hay.

Avoid gerbil litter and bedding made from cedar or unprocessed pine shavings, as their aromatic oils can cause respiratory distress in your pet. Corn cob bedding can be problematic, too, as it can be dusty and promote mold growth and moisture buildup that's bad for your gerbil. Soft aspen shavings are a dust-free, odor-free and suitable bedding for gerbils, but they can be less absorbent than paper and may not reduce odor as well. You can also use kiln-dried pine shavings that are free from harmful aromatic oils, or try a product made from eco-friendly pelleted wheat straw.

Whatever gerbil bedding you choose, you'll find great deals on it and other essential gerbil supplies like gerbil food and gerbil treats at Chewy.com. You'll also find some cozy gerbil hideouts and beds to nest in all that bedding and a cool gerbil cage to put everything in when you shop our online store. Check out our wide selection of gerbil bedding and stock up on your little bud's favorite type!

Frequently Asked Questions about Gerbil Bedding

Do gerbils need bedding?

Gerbils do need bedding, so make sure to always provide plenty of fresh bedding in their cage. Bedding will insulate and cushion your gerbils' habitat to make it more comfortable, but it also plays an essential role in gerbils' natural burrowing and nesting behaviors. Choose a material that's easy for them to tunnel through and make sure the bedding you pick is safe for gerbils. Soft materials like paper or aspen wood work best, or try a litter made of eco-friendly wheat straw or kiln-dried pine. You may want to provide a mix of bedding materials (hay and paper work well together) to combine absorbency with preferred nest and tunnel-making properties.

What is the best bedding for gerbils?

The best bedding for gerbils is one made specifically for small animals that's odorless, fragrance-free, non-toxic and safe to ingest. Paper bedding is a popular choice, and soft aspen wood shavings work well for gerbils, too. Hay lacks absorbency, but it can be mixed in with paper to prevent odor and moisture issues. Always be sure to choose a dust-free and ink-free bedding and avoid cedar and aromatic pine for safety reasons.

How much bedding do gerbils need?

Gerbils need a very thick layer of bedding in their enclosure so they can dig tunnels, burrow and nest comfortably. Most experts suggest around a 6-inch depth of bedding for gerbil cages and an enclosure that's deep enough to accommodate this depth. Providing adequate bedding will ensure your gerbils have a nice, dark place to rest during the day and a natural outlet for their instinctive burrowing behaviors. Failure to provide enough bedding may cause stress and illness in your pets.
