Premier Pet Products® Aspen Small Pet Bedding
I did not have a good experience with this product. It's very dusty and sent my guinea pigs and I into an immediate sneezing fit (complete with runny eyes) that lasted until I changed the bedding to a different brand the next day. You can see the dust billowing out of the package when you open it. I've used other brands of aspen shavings with no problem, but this one really did not work for me.

Better Than Other Brands!
Not all aspen wood shavings are created equal. I found this out when I made the mistake of buying it from another major pet store chain. From them it was dusty, hard, and had huge sharp chunks of wood in it. This brand from Petsmart, on the other hand, is softer and has much less dust with no shards. It is kiln-dried, which seems to make an immense difference in the amount of dust and texture of the wood.

great bedding for guineas. . .
I was told by a PetSmart employee to go with the wood shavings for bedding. It helps mask any odors. And it works great! When our guinea pigs "popcorn" or go a little crazy running around when my daughters shake the food bowl, some shavings fly out of the cage. It is very easy to pick up and clean around the cage each day. We tried fleece bedding, but went back to the wood shavings three days later. Definitely a great buy!

I tried this for my robo hamster. She started sneezing right away-- and so did I. I thought she just needed a few days to get used to the bedding. But she was sneezing constantly. We were both allergic to this bedding. I changed to something else after 2 days and she stopped sneezing right away. I do not recommend this product. It is dusty and had a burnt wood smell. I will never use this bedding again and plan to return the rest of the bag. It was also difficult to clean due to all the dust and had some very sharp pieces. I was worried for my hamster's health. I've had many hamsters and this is the first time I've used aspen bedding. I was shocked at my animal's reaction to it and don't recommend this product at all. I have nothing good to say about it other than the cheap price (which reflects the quality of the product).
