The Perfect Environment
Just like with feed, choosing the correct animal bedding is essential to any health and wellness program. By creating environments that mimic their natural habitats, it improves their well-being and performance. The right material also helps maintain the optimum environmental balance, reducing the amount of bedding rotation and waste.
We offer the spectrum of bedding material. From varieties of kiln-dried and heat-treated hardwoods to corn cobs, paper products to specialty blends, we carry the best brands, best-suited for your applications.
Gateway Lab Supply is dedicated to creating individualized animal wellness programs based on each customers’ needs. We pride ourselves on close communication, timely personal delivery, high availability and anticipation of need.
Our warehouse is purpose-built for the storage and distribution of specialty animal care products. We pay special attention to maintenance of consistent temperature and humidity levels. We guarantee the quality and condition of all bedding products. If the bedding product is expressly manufactured to be moisture controlled and free of pests, we make sure it stays exactly the way it arrived to our facility.
