We’ve recently switched to Swheat Scoop natural wheat litter and couldn’t be happier with the product. The initial attraction was the environmental benefit of the litter being 100% biodegradeable. However, while doing a bit of research, I have also learned that clumping clay litters can pose serious health risks for both cats and dogs. A brief explanation: the clay used in clumping litters absorbs fluids and expands a great deal. Problems arise when cats clean themselves and ingest litter. Litter in their digestive tract draws out their natural fluids, leaving them severely dehydrated. Many dogs love to “treat’ themselves to a snack (yuck) out of the cat box, thereby ingesting litter as well.
Swheat Scoop not only does a great job of neutralizing those nasty litter box odors, it’s completely safe for our animals. Additional benefits:• Certified sewer and septic safety• 100% compostable (for ornamental plants)• A renewable resource It’s comparably priced to other litters and can be found at your local pet store. swheatscoop.com
