Material: What is it made of? Mostly, bedding for hamsters is made of paper or wood chips. There are even some on this list that is made of help. Absorbent materials are the best for hamsters!
Package Size: How big is the package? This refers to the compacted size before it absorbs any moisture. You can use this information to tell what size cage you can fill with a container of the bedding.
Odor Control: You’re going to want bedding that has odor control technology, especially if you or someone you live with is sensitive to smells. Hamsters can get smelly sometimes, so this is a great feature for bedding to have.
Dust-Free: Dust can make you or your pets a cough or get sick. Some bedding has more dust than others, so make sure that you’re getting bedding that has a manageable level of dust for both you and your pet.
Expanded Volume: This refers to the volume of the bedding after it’s been used and absorbed enough moisture. This is the volume that you’ll be dealing with once the bedding needs to be cleaned out and has reached its capacity.
Natural: Natural bedding is much better for your pets and the environment. They may feel more secure without synthetic materials and you can be secure knowing that you are disposing of environmentally friendly materials. It’s a great feature!
