Symptoms of skin irritation will include redness and scabbing of the skin. Lung irritation can bring asthma-like signs and discharge from the nose. Pet owners who see discomfort in dogs who have cedar in their bedding should consider evaluation by a veterinarian in order to verify if the wood is indeed the culprit.
Is Timothy hay okay for dog bedding? - Dogster
Burrow Bedding is not indestructible, but it is exceptionally durable! Burrow bedding is the first commercially available product designed specifically for the way dogs live and think. Dogs, espccially puppies, chew. The design and construction of the material limits any damage to the site of the chewing. Dogs dig. The slippery nature of our material causes the fabric to fly away from the digging paw just like dirt would, avoiding further contact with the paw. Dogs sleep together in a pack. Just throw in more Burrow Beds to accommodate the pack.

Dog Pen Bedding??? Cedar, Pine, Sawdust? - Dog Health Forum - Dogster
This is something I did years ago after pricing doggie beds. I noticed that a lot of the upscale beds were zippered pillows filled with cedar chips. I checked one out and it had two pillows - a zippered one you could remove and wash and one sewn up that was filled with the chips. I needed a large one for my Golden Retriever and they wanted over a hundred dollars for it! Well, I made a large zippered case (I discovered later I could have bought one pretty cheap), then went to the gardening department of a big discount chain store and bought a bag of cedar chips for about 12 to 15 dollars. I stuffed the pillow. It worked great. Bugs don't like the smell of cedar I guess. It didn't take the whole bag of chips to fill the pillow. I discovered when I took the pillow off to wash it, "Heidi" was just as happy to sleep right on the chips. The one bag lasted over a couple of years. I kept the pillow because I didn't like combing the chips out of her. I adopt older dogs that owners get tired of and have had three dogs who love this arrangement. And I have never found bugs or other creepy, crawly things in the bedding!cedar chips is highly recommended because it repels insects like fleas and ticks. Just as Mollie said, you can make your own instead of paying a hundred dollars for one. I can't believe the prices of dog bedding! I have an extra large bed for one of my dogs and paid $90.00 for it at Petsmart last year. The cover is wearing out and I have searched the Internet including Petsmart to find a new one but I haven't found one yet. I'm not much of a seamstress so I will keep looking. I tell you, if you know how to sew, you could make a fortune making dog beds. The foam isn't expensive and I'm sure you could find remnants of material for a good price. Instead of a zipper, I think I would use velcro. Seems like it would be easier to sew it in the fabric than a zipper.
