View Full Version : shredded paper bedding

I have got a cross cut shredder (so the shredded pieces are about 1 - 1.5 inches long).

Would this be ok to use as guinea pig bedding?

I used to use shredded paper for bedding with my guinea pigs, particularly under hay in the winter. It does get 'wetter' then hay, so it needs cleaning out more often but then again it's very cheap, so that's not really a problem.

I'd imagine it'd depend on what you're shredding? These days black and white newspapers use a safe non-toxic ink but I've read that you should avoid colour paper/glossy ads etc.
