There is a POLLARDS ANIMAL BEDDING / LITTER product to suit your needs:








Animal Bedding


Pollard's have been manufacturing animal bedding and nesting material for over 35 years. Our product has been designed to provide various breeders, Universities and State Agencies with a consistent and high quality source of natural animal bedding as needed for breeding purposes, and for laboratory animals being housed for research purposes. We also have a range of animal bedding products suitable for the domestic market.


Made from 100% natural softwood & kiln dried, our sawdust/shavings are highly absorbent. They have an all natural odour control and have been graded and de-dusted which provides a cleaner, safer and drier environment. This means bedding changes are less frequent, and clean up is quick and easy as sawdust and shavings won't adhere to the cage or pan.


Pollards Sawdust Animal Bedding Products are derived from natural, sustainable Australian sources.  We only supply chemical free, virgin timber shavings and sawdust products.


Regular laboratory analysis is performed as part of our quality control procedures.


Note: As animals vary in shapes and sizes, we provide varying grades. Animal bedding is bought and sold by Volume, NOT Weight.


NO treated timbers are used for processing Pollard's Sawdust/Shavings


All processed Sawdust and Shavings, are graded and de-dusted


Safe, gentle, comfortable low cost bedding

Pollards Sawdust happily supplying customers with animal bedding products in both the professional and domestic markets for over 35 years.

The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI) mouse breeding facility at Kew produces approximately 100,000 genetically defined, disease free laboratory rodents every year.  Our animals are highly prized by WEHI researchers, and actively sought after by researchers from medical research institutions throughout Melbourne and Interstate.  The WEHI Kew bred laboratory rodents are regarded as the 'gold' standard in Australia.  The Kew facility has been in continual operation for in excess of forty years.


An enterprise such as this requires animal bedding that is of a high quality, and excellent consistency.  We source sawdust and shavings from Pollard's Sawdust because we are confident of their product.  The customer service we have received from Pollard's Sawdust over the years has been exemplary.  The staff and management have always been accommodating and obliging when we have made particular requests have been made at short notice.


Pollard's Sawdust have worked closely with us, and have played a part in ensuring our operations have continued to flow seamlessly.  We have always received cooperative and courteous assistance over the years, and I have no hesitation in recommending Pollard's Sawdust products and customer service.

"For more than 10 years now we've been using Pollards fine pine sawdust as a cost effective absorbent material in cat litter trays. We presently have three cats which enjoy spending most of their time in an outdoor cat run, which has sawdust-filled trays for them to use. Because the sawdust is so much more affordable than proprietary cat litters, we're able to replace soiled litter more frequently than we otherwise might, and therefore the cats benefit from a cleaner environment.  This system has worked well for a long time now, and we are very happy with it."

"We have been getting sawdust from Pollards for more than 35 years.  In that time we have had three cats and they refuse to use any other litter. We also find it much cleaner . Most of all the service from Pollards is great. We have told many of our friends about this product."
