Pet Safety Brochures

Your small pet is important to you, as it is to the some 16 million U.S. families who cohabitate with rats, mice, gerbils, hamsters, rabbits, Guinea pigs and ferrets. Creating a proper habitat is the first step to a happy small pet.

Unlike dogs and cats, which enjoy more mobility, most small animals are confined to enclosures that become their entire world. Each item that goes into the pets’ living spaces requires careful consideration, especially the bedding, as there is a wide variety of options to choose from, including wood shavings (pine, aspen and cedar), paper (reclaimed sludge based and sludge free), corncobs, pellets made of wood, paper, wheat and other fibers, and crinkled paper.
