Small Animal Bedding & Habitats


Cages, Accessories, & Bedding


Cages and Accessories

Your small pet uses bedding and litter to feel comforted and secure while he's in his cage. At Pet World, you will find a variety of small pet bedding and litter, including Aspen bedding and litters, to offer essential comfort and security for your small animal.

Waste-absorbing litter or bedding is required for most small animal cages. Whichever product you decide on, always change the litter or bedding often to keep your pet healthy. Bedding also supports the burrowing, nesting and tunneling behavior that is instinctive to small animals.

There are numerous bedding options for your small animal. Each has its pros and cons. You need to find one that works best for you and your pet.

Cages

At Pet World, you will find a large variety of cages with brands including Marchioro, Prevue Hendryx, Kaytee, Living World, and Maine Cage Factory. Having the proper size cage is essential for overall health and well-being. With any animal, the bigger the cage, the better. Please ask a store employee for assistance in deciding what size cage is appropriate for your small animal.

We offer a wide variety of food dishes and water bottles of all sizes for your small pet. For food dishes, we have ceramic bowls for the bottom of the cage and screw-on dishes for wire cages. For water, we have bottles made from plastic or glass. They range in sizes from 4oz to 32oz. We also have bottles holders that work in aquarium cages or for animals who like to play with their bottle. We even have bottle brushes, making it easier to keep your water bottle clean. It is very important that your small animal has access to clean, fresh water at all times.

Shelter

All animals should have access to a shelter; a place to sleep or a place to hide. Houses are made from wood or plastic and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Plastic houses are easier to clean, while wooden houses hold up longer for big chewers.

Wheels and Exercise Balls

While all animals should have exercise outside of the cage, some small animals need it inside as well. We have a variety of wheels in all sizes, made from wire or plastic. Wire wheels are more durable, while plastic wheels tend to be better on the feet. We even offer “silent” wheels and saucer-type wheels.

Plastic balls are perfect way to give your pet exercise outside of the cage. Please keep in mind that all animals should have access to water, so it is important not to keep your pet in a ball for too long. Always use balls under supervision to make sure your pet does not chew out.

*Please note: Not all animals use a ball or wheel. This includes rabbits and guinea pigs.

Tunnels, Playhouses, and Climbing Structures

Aside from their house, small animals enjoy other things to run through, hide in, or climb on. We have a large selection of tunnels made from a variety of materials including cardboard, plastic, willow, and hay. We also have willow and hay houses, and hide-aways that small animals have fun chewing on. We have a variety of hanging things including hammock and tunnels. Finally, we have a large variety of ledges, branches, ladders, and rope perches available in our bird department that are also perfect for small animals.

Cage Mats and Fleece Beds

Cages with wire bottoms can cause damage to your pet’s feet. We recommend covering the wire with cage mats. We have plastic ones that are easy to clean or hay and coconut fiber mats that are fun to chew on. Most small animals also like having a soft spot to lay on. For this, we have fleece beds and “sleeping bags”.

Bedding, litter, and cage cleaning

From pelleted bedding, to paper products, to wood shavings, we carry a large variety of bedding and litter for your small animal.

Pelleted bedding/litter

Pelleted bedding comes in a variety of materials including wood and paper. Pellets are going to be the most absorbent, helping control odor in the cage. This makes it a good choice for use in litterboxes.

Wood shavings

Wood shavings are the most traditional types of beddings. Due to respiratory problems, we recommend never using cedar shavings. Aspen shavings are going to be the safest. While shavings tend to be the most economical, it is not the most absorbent.

Cleaning the cage

We recommend scooping bathroom areas every day, and cleaning the entire cage every 5 – 7 days or as needed. This will eliminate your pet sitting in it’s own waste and will cut down on cage odor.
