Bedding and litter material can often contribute to flystrike by providing an ideal environment if soiled. Find out how our bedding will help
Posted: 11 July 2017
With all the warm weather we’ve had so far this summer comes a problem we all know too well – fleas, mites and flies. Unfortunately many pets succumb, and rabbits and small mammals are no exception.
With smaller pets living in small enclosures, the bedding and litter material can often contribute to the problem by providing an ideal environment with urine and faeces that attracts flies.
Did you know that at Burgess Pet Care we produce the ideal litter product, Excel Small Animal Bedding & Litter.
It’s absorbent properties are great, removing and trapping both fluid and odours. It’s long lasting, biodegradable and easy to remove during cleaning, and is therefore truly fit for purpose.
This unique bedding helps prevent flea, mite and fly infestations as it contains an added natural biocide that interferes with the exoskeleton of insects, thereby killing them through dehydration. This has considerable health and welfare benefits as it reduces the risk of fly strike and pododermatitis.
Excel Bedding and Litter is also pre-treated to remove dust and mould spores so reducing the risk of allergies and respiratory infections.
Why not move your clients over to Excel Bedding and Litter - it’s available at all major veterinary wholesalers.
