Softwood bedding is a good, cheaper alternative to cedar or pine bedding. It absorbs wetness and odor well enough, yet not for as long as cedar or pine. Overall it is well worth using.
I would recommend this to a friend!

The pine shavings in this product killed my pet Rat!! After researching reasons why he might be becoming sick I found out that rats are highly allergic to Pine wood. Why would a company sell shavings and advertize as "great for ALL small pets!".. with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. I am clearly NOT satisfied!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

We switched to this wood type from Pine and Cedar (on Vet. request) and we use it with Petco Softwood natural bedding and we don't have to change the guinea pig bedding for a week or two, and with no smell. I do have male guinea pigs, one of them are not fixed so he is especially stinky. We use this on bottom, because when the Guinea Pigs eat it, it can cause constipation, not all Guinea Pigs will eat bedding, but mine do.

I use this bedding in my chick brooders. For smaller bags of the same product anywhere else I have gone it is WAY more expensive. And this is the best odor control bedding as well. I plan to use this in my chicken coop, one because it is affordable and two because it does what it says it will do. I don't really buy a whole lote of products from petco because of prices, but this is one product that they carry and it is cheaper getting it from them than anywhere else. Def will recommend this to anyone I may come across that has small animals, even chickens.

Controls Odor Just the Same as Carefresh but Cheaper!

I was planning to use Carefresh for my rats but they came with this. At first I thought, Oh great... another cheap, not odor controlling bedding. Man, I was wrong! This bedding controls the odor of my rats' waste and they're not even litter trained yet! This bedding works better than Carefresh, actually because my sister uses Carefresh for her hamsters and her room smells bad but my room smells kind of musty, but no problems at all with odor. I highly reccomend this over Carefresh or any other bedding!

WHY HAS PRICE GONE UP

I am very disappointed in Petco.com lately.
I have been using Petco .com for a number of years and all of a sudden the prices have jumped way up
on everything. This is a very good bedding but
you can buy a much bigger bag in the store(113 Liters) for the same price.
I do not use Petco.com very much anymore because the quality of the products have really
declined and I find I can get much of the same stuff
in the store for much less money.
I would recommend this to a friend!
