Mini Hemp bedding features:

Hemp Bedding 

Excellent enclosure bedding for Reptiles and Small Animals

Benefits of Mini-Hemp Bedding:

Highly Absorbent

-Mini-Hemp® is capable of absorbing far more moisture than either straw or wood shavings, and any wet areas that do have to be removed are small by comparison. It makes a warm and comfortable bed that provides good insulation against cold and protection against injury.

Low Odour
Mini-Hemp® also absorbs ammonia very efficiently, reducing its harmful effects on the respiratory system, and reduces odour

Dust Extracted
Mini-Hemp® Dust and spores are extracted from Mini-Hemp® to provide a cleaner stable environment. This is particularly important for an animal with a respiratory disease but also helps to prevent such problems developing. Mini-Hemp® is regularly batch tested for dust and spore counts by an independent laboratory.

Economical to Use
Less Mini-Hemp® is needed to do the same job as other litters. With Mini-Hemp® high absorbency, wet areas tend to be smaller and noticeably less often. It is easy to use and cost-effective.

Labour Saving
Mini-Hemp® bedding or litter box is quick and easy to maintain, staying drier and lasting longer than conventional materials. It should be disturbed as little as possible, with the wet material removed as required.

Easy Disposal
Mini-Hemp® creates only a small manure heap, which rots down into quality garden compost in just a few weeks. This compares very favourably
withthe long time it takes straw, shaving and particularly clay or diatomaceous earth, to decompose

Environmentally Friendly
Mini Hemp® is made from a sustainable source and is completely biodegradable.


Why Mini-Hemp is a great idea for your reptiles and small animals:

Bedding is an important part of a rodents’ housing. The wrong type of bedding may cause respiratory illnesses as they contain excess oils and aromas that rodents and other small animals cannot be exposed to for long periods of time (being more than one or two cleanings).

Cat litter such as wood shavings, recycled paper pulp seems to be popular bedding for small animals but amongst rat and mice-keepers it has also been reported to cause the most sneezing in their rats and mice. Pine (and cedar) bedding is detrimental to a rat's respiratory system. Recycled paper tends to contain phenols, which give them their “fresh” scent, and is toxic.

Remember that your rat, mouse and guinea pig has its nose close to whatever bedding you give it for a large percentage of an average day, so it doesn’t want highly fragranced or dusty bedding material.

First of all, the acids given off by pine and cedar are damaging to the respiratory tract, making your pet susceptible to respiratory infections.

Secondly, components of cedar and pine (phenols), which give them their ‘fresh’ scents, are toxic, causing the rat's liver to work overtime to cope with them. This can lead to constant stress on the rat's system, and problems with the immune system. It can also affect the absorption of medicines given 
to treat other problems. (This also applies to mice, rabbits, guinea pigs and other small pets).

Mini-Hemp® is great bedding for rats and mice that like to tunnel. The structure of the hemp allows for
easytunneling. Hemp bedding would work much better than other wood based litter, which still carries the dust that irritates the upper respiratory systems.

Mini-Hemp®,
hemphurd bedding is most definitely a safe bedding option for rats and mice. Hemp has natural oil that contains insect repellants and will prevent the hosting of mites. However, if your bedding is already infested with mites you could spray the bedding with diluted tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil or Top of Decent mite spray as either of this will kill mites.

When using a hemp product for guinea pigs you must be aware that some brands are treated with essential oils such as eucalyptus extract. Most hemp bedding for
horsesare treated with either eucalyptus or citronella. Guinea pigs do enjoy chewing their bedding, and as Eucalyptus oil in particular is poisonous to guinea pigs, any bedding containing this oil must never be used for guinea pigs’ bedding.

Mini-Hemp® is all-natural, as it does not contain any added “fresh” scents or chemicals against parasites. Any litter that has a scent to it is harmful to sensitive mice lungs as we

Just fantastic product. So easy to pick out chicken droppings each morning and feels like bedding has been replaced every morning. So much better than sawdust, straw, leaves, fine bark. Fantastic for egg boxes also.
