Well Oliver and I (as well as the hermit crabs, aquatic frog and one of the fish, haha) are visiting my parents for at least a week.... before I came home, I had asked my mom to pick up whatever 40 pound bucket of scoopable litter that she could find so that was one less thing I had to bring back from State College. I usually get the bucket of Sam's Club brand (I cant recall the actual name right now) - it's scoopable with crystals... not top of the line, but Oliver uses it and it works well for me... well my mom ended up getting Scoop Away at BJs, cuz that's all they had. This morning I decided to change out Oliver's box completely since he left a REALLY stinky stanky poo and it was due for a change... this is the first time I'm using scoop away brand litter and I find it EXTREMELY dusty.... now, I don't really mind this - I can deal and it's not like it will be our permanent litter but my question is, does this excessively dusty litter pose any health risks for Oliver? He has a covered box, but the door has been taken off, so I imagine the dust will be able to escape easily, but he is also a big digger when it comes time for him to poo... just want to make sure that this is an ok litter to use temporarily....
