Hay For Guinea Pig Bedding
We know guinea pigs need to eat high quality hay everyday.
But there’s another use for hay that new guinea pigs owners wonder about: bedding.
Is hay good for guinea pig bedding?
Yes, good quality grass hay can also be used as a bedding substrate for guinea pigs. It’s not only comfortable, but they can literally chew on and eat their bedding as well!
The important goal of quality guinea pig bedding is that it needs to be safe, comfortable and absorbent for the urine it will need to be able to effectively absorb.
It should absolutely not be dusty or made of any material that has perfume or other unnatural chemicals or additives in it.
A big mistake a lot of new guinea pigs owners fall for is to use dangerous cedar wood shavings as bedding. This is a huge No-No!
