View Full Version : Sneezing Help please!

So, I just out wood pellets in the second level of Ginger's cage. However, ever since I have, I have noticed that she has been sneezing. A LOT. But I was told that these should be fine, and she's had wood pellets before, and didn't have a problem. Help?

Have you gotten the wood pellets from a different supplier?
Have you ever put it in the second level before? As there could be falling dust into the bottom level which may cause her to sneeze a little more than if it were just on the ground?

There are many different brands of wood pellets, some more dusty than others.

Ariona.......I recently came across some very interesting products at my local feed store where I often shop for Chester. You may want to check out this link to that information:

Not all wood pellets are hardwood. I'd read the package to see exactly what type of pellets they are to make sure there's not harmful.
