This product is ideal for bedding small animals. Wood shavings are a warm and very absorbant bedding product. It can also be used for larger animals such as horses. This product is a compressed bag of shavings. Shavings are created as a by product of the timber industry. We are very conscious of the environmental impact of our products and as a result, we ensure that our sawdust and shavings come from field timber that is on an annual replanting scheme.
