I am not a massive fan of pets at home but I am a very big fan of there wood shavings. I first brought my wood shavings from pets at home about 4 years ago now after a friend recommended it to me, I had previously been buying big bags of wood shavings for the rabbits from a local pet feed supplier but the shavings were very rough to the touch and sometimes had bits of paint in them so I had started to use the small bags from the supermarket that I use with the hamsters but this was a nuisance as I needed 6 of these every week and was working out quite expensive. Pets at homes wood shavings are available in 4 sizes Small £1.79 Medium ... Read the complete review

Having a kept a hamster and a gerbil in the recent past, plus still having guinea pigs and a rabbit all of which do tend to be kept caged for much of the time, (although the rabbit and guinea pigs can go outside in the grass run and the hamster did like a hamster ball) the issue of what works as a suitable bedding product for them has sprung to mind on many occasions. Not only does the bedding need to be pet friendly it also needs to be kind to the environment our pets are kept in and our pocket. Pets at Home being a large store have plenty of pet care items to choose from including their Pets at Home Woodshavings Small Pet Bedding which isn't a bad ... Read the complete review

What can you say about wood shavings? After all, they are just little shavings of wood that you put in the bottom of your little furry animals cage to provide some comfort and something to absorb their little wees etc. We have 2 rats in a very large cage at home and kind of defaulted to the Pets at Home Wood shavings option after we found that our normal supplier (Tesco) had sold out, and our little critters were in dire need of some fresh shavings and couldn't really wait for a new Tesco delivery. Kind of difficult to tell a rat to hold on for a few days. Price wise there was quite a difference. Whereas we normally paid just over £5 for a large ... Read the complete review

When I bought my son his first hamster we purchased him from pets at home and so the natural step was to purchase the cage and accessories from there too. As such I purchased the pets at home brand wood shavings to line his cage with there too. I purchased the small wood shavings at a cost of £1.69 but there are larger packs available. I find that the small pack is the best for our needs as it is easily stored and we don't need a huge amount per cage clean for our hamster. I would imagine if you have a larger pet like a rabbit it would make more economical sense to buy the shavings in a larger pack. In the small wood shavings you get ... Read the complete review

One of the perks of having a hamster as a pet is that they're very low maintenance animals- give them food, water and a clean, comfortable place to live, and they're happy (well, I assume so, at least- small rodents aren't the most expressive creatures!). There are a few essentials that you'll always need to hand, however, and one of these is a decent sized bag of woodshavings. These serve as a covering for the cage's base, providing a soft, comfortable floor for your pet, and, importantly, absorbing their wee. Any hamster owners out there will know that this can be pretty pungent, so odour control is vital! A generous layer of woodshavings not only absorbs moisture, but Read the complete review
