    I had a look on the rwaf and they had done useful information. I have ordered some megazorb to try as they said it is safe and also very cheap!

    Can I ask why some of you don't use wood litter? Is there any reason why not please?

    Hope you get on ok with Megazorb, I used it in the past for guineas and hamsters no problems. Some people used to say it had a smell but I never thought so! I gave up on Fitch since the out of stock/price raise and when I no longer had gerbils as it used to hold their tunnels really well.

    I hate the smell of it! It's good tho and nice and absorbant. Annoyingly small pieces though that scatter everywhere

    I wouldn’t use the scented stuff personally.
    Thank you. I use wood litter for horse bedding so that should hopefully be fine. I get it at the local horse feed shop xx

    I used to use megazorb & its defo the cheapest of the litters I've tried - not so much on line but if there are are any horsey feed places local? Ours used to be 6.25 a bag. I use whatever these days. J&B on wood cat litter at mo, Mousey is on carefresh cos she is special.

    Megazorb does smell a bit sicky to me in the way some paper does. Pop your mask on & once the hay is on top you'll not notice

    Wood based pellets are fine. I've been using them for many years, think the op mistook what you meant by thinking you meant wood shavings

    Wood-based cat litter pellets are also heat processed which removes the harmful oils and phenols and therefore do not pose a risk of skin and lung irritation. For the sleeping areas of outside rabbits we recommend that these pellets are used with a covering of straw for warmth and comfort. Always read the label because at least one brand contains silicon which should be avoided
