Misty – The issue of dog allergies is a little complicated, and I’m putting a link below that clarifies the myths about pet allergies. Here are a couple of quotes that explain the basics: All dogs and cats – short-haired, long-haired, wire-… More:http://en.allexperts.com/q/Terriers-2533/allergies.htm
Can rats have food allergies? I have a few food allergies and I know that animals, dogs for example, can have allergic reactions (my dog is allergic to bees), but is it possib
Hi!Why not use shredded paper or old t-shirts as a temporary measure until your Petsmart gets EcoBed back in??Personally, I wouldnt actually use anything but EcoBed or Yesterdays News – and Im in England so its definately not American only! EcoBed is the only bedding I would use after experimenting with a few different ones – CareFresh is awful! It made me sneeze something rotten and gave my boys chest infections! A safe alternative is also something called Yesterdays News – this is a wood based cat litter that is also guaranteed to be dust and mite free! Of course, it can be any wood based cat litter pellets and you can get some brands that are cheaper than Yesterdays News!What Ive found with EcoBed is that its usually the smaller, non commercialised pet shops that sell it – the English franchise, Pets at Home (part of Petsmart) dont sell EcoBed at all so I bought my first bag from a small, local pet shop – it was extremely cheap, too – almost £3!00 cheaper than CareFresh!If you dont manage to find it in the shops at all, why not contact your local breeder?? I managed to bag a large bale of EcoBed for £6 from my local breeder – theyll be happy for the money and are usually ten times cheaper than pet shops, and for two rats itll last you their lifetime!If you still have no luck with either EcoBed or Yesterdays News, then perhaps shredded paper/tissues or fleece (fleecy material) bedding would be appropriate! Fleecy bedding not only looks pretty but its wonderful on rattys feet! Just means a little more effort getting the ratties to urinate in their litter tray! Or, of course, you could makeshift ecobedding as all it is, literally, is shredded cardboard – you could buy a large cardboard box and shred it yourself! Cheap and effective!If your ratties are not already litter trained, ask a question on here or drop me an e-mail and Id be more than happy to help you out :)Take care and good luck in your hunt for bedding!
Most of the time, it is an allergy to household dust. My rats are sneezing but they seem happy are they sick? they probably are so you can do one several things 1. you could clean the cage if you haven't in several days 2. when you take your
