Hi there! I'm new to BYC although I have been a lurker for a couple years now- since getting my first buttons. I have been struggling with poo and paper bedding getting stuck to their toes and I've been diligent about washing their feet. My one girl lost a toe before I noticed, unfortunately. She seems fine now! However, I have been wanting to switch back to wood bedding. I have just started to use CareFresh Plus whuch is softwood with some paper bedding. I found out on a guinea pig forum that the siftwood was confirmed to be Western Hemlock, Spruce and Devil's Fir - I am wary of pine and cedar from my history of having rodents. But it seems some of my buttons are eating it!!! It's very finely shaved and I bet it feels better on their feet than bigger shavings. But I worry about their health, especially their crop and stomachs!!! Can anyone inform me if this is normal and non-life threatening? Or if bigger shavings, like aspen, would be better? Thank you so much!!!
