Pine is the most widely available and inexpensive bedding you’ll see. A lot of pet owners have used it, and their animals have done well for many years. The consistency and texture of the bedding depends on the brand of pine you use; you could be getting fine-cut soft shreds, or big, thick shavings. Generally, I don’t like to use wood-based bedding at all because it tends to be dusty, and this can cause respiratory illness in some animals. Beware of this bedding if you have allergies, the dust may also cause them to act up. My pets (particularly my guinea pig) also tend to fling this light-weight bedding out of the cage, creating quite a mess. If you decide to opt for pine, I suggest choosing a brand with finely shredded pieces for the comfort of your animal. If you’re not fond of strong, woody smells in your living space, this is not the beddign type for you.

Epidemological studies in humans point to increase risks in people who work in saw mills, but the issue of volatile phenol involvement is not clear. Cedar shavings have caused increased risk for cancer in certain rodents, but in many ways this work was skewed by the nature of the experiment. Thus the evidence is, at best, only suggestive.

However, some types of shavings sold in pet stores are actually harmful to hamsters.

This is very different from use around domestic animals (dogs, cats) and use outdoors or in pet beds.

Though compounds such as phenols have been reviewed as a potential health risk to small animals (rats, rabbits) respiratory system, the tests are inconclusive at this time. Pet bedding can also refer to bedding material for horses and cattle. Based on scientific studies and reports to date, cedar wood shavings do not negatively impact domestic animals (pets like dogs and cats) or farm animals.
