Enviro-dri

SHEPHERD SPECIALTY PAPERS

Give them the best material

and they will build a quality nest!

A recent study found the following:*

  • Biological relevance is a key component of environmental enrichment materials.

  • When mice are given appropriate nesting materials, they can build nests similar to those built by their wild counterparts.

  • Wild mice build dome-shaped complex, multilayered nests.

  • Each paper strip is 3 layers thick.

  • Enviro-dri® allowed the mice to build the highest quality nests.

  • Nests built with compressed cotton squares were of poor quality - even when multiple squares were used.

  • Enviro-dri® also provides an adaptive response to stressors in their environment.

The Best Building Block

for a Better Nest.

Additional Enviro-dri® Features:

  • Consistent Quality:  Enviro-dri® is a controlled, manufactured product made up of 100% virgin kraft paper fibers to ensure consistent, high quality.

  • Eliminates Limb Entanglement:  Cotton threads commonly found in competing compressed cotton squares, have been shown to cause limb entanglement problems with pups. Since Enviro-dri® is made of 100% paper, this health concern is eliminated.

  • Dust Elimination:  Enviro-dri® is made of cleanly cut 1/8-inch strips of paper 3 layers thick, which means dust is virtually eliminated.  Respiratory ailments and other problems resulting from competing compressed cotton squares are eliminated by using Enviro-dri®.

  • Availability:  Enviro-dri® is available in either natural or white grades both packaged in compressed 10 or 25 pound cartons.

  • Easy disposala:  Because Enviro-dri® is a paper product, it can be incinerated or land filled for easy, economical disposal.

  • Fast, easy ordering:  For more information, prices or samples of Enviro-dri® or our specialty products for laboratory and animal care, see your nearest Shepherd distributor today. Or call toll-free 800/382-5001.
