This is a very good brand of bedding for rats. It does't cover up odor as well as aspen shavings would, but it is softer and more absorbent. My three girls love this kind because they can burrow in it comfortably. If you decide to go with another kind of bedding instead, stay away from pine, cedar and spruce beddings! These particular kinds of wood have chemicals in them that can damage rat's delicate respiratory tracts, leading to serious respiratory problems and sometimes even death. I hope you have a wonderful experience with your rats!

If this is for the Total Comfort bedding (hard to tell by the question list) Then yes, I use it for my two rats and love it! It is my favorite bedding.

Fairly long, depending on how much you use. Hamsters tend to burrow, so I would put a good amount in. I have no idea what size cage you have, but if it is the standard 1 foot long by 1/2 foot wide, I'd estimate it at at least four months, if not longer.
I hope this helps!

Question

Does this have cedar chips in it?

I have a hedgehog, and they cannot live in cedar chips because their urine mixed with it can give off toxic odors. This is really cheap and I'd like to use this as bedding I just need to make sure it doesn't have cedar in it.

Not exactly. It still contains the chemicals that cedar does though, which may or may not harm you hedgehog. I freeze mine before use and microwave it to help cut most of the chemicals out, but I don't have experience with hedgehogs, just rats and guinea pigs. I hope this helps!

My mom has really bad allergies and we once had a guinea pig but the bedding was affecting her allergies ALOT. It was only a class pet for the weekend. So I just want to make sure the bedding wont effect her as much.
