    I love this bedding. It keeps my home smelling fresh and it is so easy to sift in between full cleanings, I just use a kitty litter scoop to tidy up the cage. I have 2 rats and I wouldn't want to use anything else for them. I'm glad my breeder recommended this.

    My pet rats love the chips, and on PetFoodDirect the price is ASTOUNDING!

    But, even with deep plastic pans on the bottom levels of their cages, they will kick it all over the place outside the cage. I have to vacuum every single day. Just sweeping it into a pan is a chore because a light breeze will scatter it to all ends of the earth.

    Also, if your pet pulls any kind of soft blanket, towel, or fabric toy into the bedding, good luck getting the chips off... I have to throw it all into a hamper, take it outside, and beat the heck out of it. Not the end of the world, but just transporting a chip-encrusted fleece outside leaves an annoying trail of chips through the house. :)

    The bedding itself though is really amazing, but I have very inquisitive and active rats; for indoor household use, I advise against these tiny chips, and instead recommend the normal aspen shavings as bedding. Fortunately though, PetFoodDirect also has the regular aspen bedding at an unbeatable price. :)

    • Soft

    Cons

      Comments about Native Earth Aspen Sani Chips 2.2 Cubic Foot Bedding:

      I have had hedgehogs and tenrecs for over 20 years. I have tried and used various items for bedding and litter for both. For hedgehogs, I still prefer a cage liner with a little pan under the exercise wheel. This litter works very well for them. For the tenrecs, I find this is great for use in the entire cage. This product is soft and has not splinters in it that could harm your small pet (unlike many of the other wood litters available). It lacks any heavy odors or oils that can be detrimental to small creatures, but is absorbent and keeps odors down. A kitty litter scoop can also work well to strain through it to remove fecal matter, so there is less waste of the litter. I've had no problems with the animals trying to eat it, as well. In the past, paper products have been ingested, creating a few medical problems. I really like this and have found no cons with this product.

      less dust, easy clean, but watch out for compaction!

        Best Uses

        • Domesticated Animals

        Comments about Native Earth Aspen Sani Chips 2.2 Cubic Foot Bedding:

        I usually use shredded aspen for my snakes but accidently ordered this one on one of my orders, so thought I would leave a review. Doesn't work in my display racks because it does not compact down so snakes and rodents push it around and it winds up in the slides for the front doors a lot easier than the shredded, so con #1. Secondly, if the snake is small you probably shouldn't use it, I noticed my ball pythons spending a lot of time trying to get chunks of this out of their mouths from both missed strikes as well as after killing and eating an animal (bedding sticks easier to the dead rodent). So I would be concerned with possible compaction issues in my smaller snakes, Con #2.
        On the plus side, I used this in some of my tank displays and the push around factor doesn't matter there, so it was nice because this bedding is A LOT less dusty than the shredded aspen bedding. Super clean, and also easy to spot clean since it kind of makes a clump for wet discharge. So a double pro given for cleanliness and easy clean!
        As far as rodent use goes, aspen sucks unless you only have a pet rat or rodent or whatever. Paper bedding is vastly superior for breeding tanks to control waste absorption, smell and cost. (I just use plain old newspaper and paper towels if you are wondering about the cost part, but I have used kaytee and carefresh when I am in a hurry, still much better!) I understand there are some expandable pellets a lot of folks use as well that work great for absorbing all that ammonia. just thought id throw that in.

          Comments about Native Earth Aspen Sani Chips 2.2 Cubic Foot Bedding:

          I use this for rat bedding. I find it is much better than the shredded aspen and doesnt get as horribly smelling as pine. It is also a great price. Ive used many different types of bedding, but this one Ive been using for almost two years. I have 21 bins of rats that I breed for feeders. I wont use anything else anymore.

            I was using shredded aspen and this time tried aspen chips since they were on sale and I wanted less dust from shredded product. They are less dusty but tend to stick to fresh fruit and veggies my guinea pigs eat more so than shredded. Also, chips get kicked out of cage easier. Not sure if I'll go back to shredded or not. Both are great products.

            I am extremely happy and satisfied with pet360. Seriously it literally took them like 2 days to ship the product! So.. thanks pet360. Anyway love the sani chips I have snakes and I use sani chips ,shredded aspen, and desert snow. The sani chips are by far the easiest to clean however I like to switch it up which is why I always like to keep all 3 on deck. Overall love the sani chips thanks again pet 360
