Gem Premier Cedar Shavings are primarily kiln-dried Western Cedar shavings. They are an excellent bedding product for outdoor animals - large or small. Cedar naturally repels fleas and ticks so it's particularly useful in outdoor pet areas. Western Cedar does not contain many of the compounds found in Eastern Cedar that can be toxic to small animals. However, care should always be exercised when using aromatic shavings in enclosed areas and if you have any doubts or concerns, please consult your animal health-care professional.
Gem Premier Pine Shavings are primarily kiln-dried Pine shavings. They are an excellent bedding product for both indoor and outdoor animals - large or small. Pine naturally retains a fresh, woodsy aroma. Pine shavings tend to run smaller than Whites or Cedar.
GEM Premier White Shavings are a mix of approximately 80% kiln-dried (kd) Western Hemlock and 20% kd Douglas Fir. And no, the Western Hemlock tree is not related to the poisonous hemlock plant! The Western Hemlock is a coniferous softwood (evergreen) tree that is a predominant species in the forests of western Washington, Oregon and British Columbia. Western Hemlock is the preferred softwood for making high quality paper in the Northwest, and it also makes a superior bedding material.
