Vitakraft® ECO Small Pet Bedding
Awesome for rats!
My 6 rats love this bedding because it molds into nests and tunnels. Also it is dust free so that helps with sensitive respiratory systems.
The down side is that it is messy and gets everywhere! It is ok at absorbing odor, but that is with getting changed out every few days.
I don't use this as an everyday bedding I use fabric lining the shelves in my DCN, but I like to get a box and put a few handfuls into it. My rats really enjoy that.

I love this bedding when combined with another. But I wouldn't recommend as the sole bedding. It gets messy VERY fast. It not very good with absorbing odor or urine. It's hard to clean when it gets wet. And it's pretty expensive. I use it for my four mice. And they LOVE it. But I put a laying of Sun Seed Fresh World Bedding down first (with is a GREAT product). And with the combination of the two litters it's great. My mice love being able to digging around in the Eco Bedding and make tunnels and beds out of it. And it goes a long way. I only need a hand full or two to put in their cage. Because it expands very well.

BEST BEDDING EVER FOR RATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought this bedding yesterday for my two rats Reggie and Ralph. They LOVE it!!!! I have allergies and so does Ralph. It is the best bedding I have found! I had Carefresh Ultra and both the rats and I kept sneezing. With this bedding we haven't sneezed at all!!! Please get this bedding if you have rats or any other animals!!! It is MUCH MUCH cheaper than any of the other Carefreshes or any other beddings besides aspen which I didn't like at all because it had a weird smell and didn't absorb very well at ALL!!!!! I got the brown normal ECO Bedding and it is wonderful!
PROS: hyper-allergenic, rats love to burrow in it, comes in different colors, and safe for the environment

This is my favourite bedding to use for my rats.
I've tried many kinds of bedding and this ECO bedding is my favourite! In particular, the brown rather than the pink or blue. I've noticed the Canadian and U.S. stores seem to be doing away with the product and I'm very upset about that. They seem to carry a lot of the Carefresh bedding and even though it states that it's dust free, it's not. I hate it.
