Small Animal Bedding & Litter

For small critters like hamsters, gerbils, mice, hedgehogs and guinea pigs, having a clean, cozy habitat is extremely important. These tiny animals spend most of their time here, so it should be a comfortable place to do all the things they love and would do in the wild. Putting down a thick layer of premium small pet bedding gives your pets a place to hide, burrow, nest, play, tunnel through and sleep. Now, your little friend also uses his bedding as a litter box, so you want to be sure you’ve lined his cage with the right stuff—for your sake and his. Whether you’re searching for guinea pig bedding, hamster bedding or rabbit bedding on Chewy, you’ll find it all in the same convenient spot—under small pet bedding. All of these creatures have the same needs when it comes to cage liners, so the same bedding can be used for multiple types of small animals—from chinchillas to ferrets to rabbits. Small pet bedding is made from a number of different natural materials, including reclaimed paper fiber, wood shavings, corn cob, clay, reclaimed wood fiber and recycled paper. Try out several kinds to see which your little pal seems to like, and which suits both of your needs. Some things to look for when you’re picking out small pet bedding are superior odor control, safety, low dust, high absorbency and of course, overall fluffiness for comfort. CareFresh Complete uses natural reclaimed paper fiber that expands up to twice its volume and gives 10 days of odor control with a proprietary Odor Stop formula. This renewable resource is biodegradable and compostable, and it’s three times more absorbent than wood shavings for a dry, healthy environment. CareFresh also makes a Custom Guinea Pig & Rabbit bedding with larger pieces for nesting as well as a Custom Hamster & Gerbil bedding that has smaller pieces for burrowing. Some small pets such as hamsters, gerbils, rabbits and ferrets, can be potty trained to use a specific corner of their habitat. You can set up a litter pan for your furry friend after watching to see where he normally tends to go. Marshall Premium Ferret Litter is a special litter made just for ferrets, who require even more odor control with their frequent potty schedules. Made with 100% recycled paper, it’s both flushable and biodegradable. Oxbow Bene Terra Eco-Straw is a natural wheat straw litter that can be used with just about any pet, including rabbits, ferrets, geckos, guinea pigs, rats, chinchillas and even cats. At Chewy, you can choose from tons of small pet bedding and litter options that keep your critter’s environment dry, healthy and free from unpleasant smells. Be sure to add it to your Autoship so your pet’s home stays nice and fresh.
