The wood must be kiln-dried before it is processed to reduce its moisture content to below 19%. All Royal Wood Shavings products undergo this drying process to obtain wood that has moisture at an optimal level of between 10 and 15%. This process eliminates bacteria and moulds that can ruin the shavings and greatly affect your animals’ health.
In addition to low moisture content, look for screened and dust-free products made from primary-processed soft wood.
Consult the “How to Choose” page to know what things to consider when choosing your shavings.
