If they happen to eat aspen bedding, this is fine for them.
Many cavy owners will use it in their guinea pig’s cages. If you do use it, make sure it is spread evenly over the bottom of the cage to a depth of at least 1 to 2 inches.
It needs to be replaced every two to three weeks and spot cleaned once a day.
