Would you recommend using shredded paper for rabbit, hamster, or guinea pig bedding?
I am referring to the paper that's gone through an office paper shredding machine
I wouldn't recommend it. While it can be a great cheap source of bedding, printer paper and newspaper aren't very absorbant. I would stick to the packaged bedding you find in pet stores or grocery stores. It is a bit more costly, but it will save your pet from health problems. A compromise is to put a layer of shredded paper down before you add the packaged bedding. This way what you buy goes a bit further and you save some money.
I have tried it, I thought I was being thrifty and could save a few dollars.
Well first off it made a much bigger mess, second it did not absorb and last it did not cover the odor of the rabbit smell.
Same with a cat, the paper shredd makes a much bigger mess even if mixed with regular cat litter. It sticks to their feet and gets all over.
NOW, with a goat, it still does not absorb but they love to eat it. >? Mine thought it was a snack.

I have noticed lately my guinea pig is losing hair in small patches. I am thinking he is pretty old and hoping that is the reason. I have not changed his diet or the type of bedding. Any suggestions on what is wrong or what I should do?
