Burgess Excel Bedding & Litter is made from 100% natural pressed straw. It is heat treated and dust extracted to minimise spores and dust which can lead to respiratory issues. We've also added a natural ingredient to help control the activity of parasites on and around your pet. This combined with unrivalled absorbency helps prevent flea, fly and mite infestation. Excel Bedding & Litter is many more times absorbent than whole straw and shavings. It eradicates nasty odours by effectively binding moisture without the need for deodorising chemicals. It can be used in pet hutches and runs, cages and litter trays to absorb moisture and eliminate odours.
