    Re: pine shavings



    [/b]Cedar ACTUALLY IS dangerous. Pine is also, but to a lesser degree.[i] That's what the Pine Info Page is there for. You can read the scientific evidence for yourself.

    The information presented is as much scientific information as possible. I did not include all the websites that say one thing or another, based on opinion. It's my opinion that many people rationalize using pine because they want to use it. It's cheap, it's readily available. It "smells good."

    There are recommendations for reducing the potential toxicity on the bedding page if you are going to use it.
