NOOOO!!! but kaytees soft sorbent lavender caused my gerbil rex to get one! his eye got all red and inflammed looking and puss started to come out of it for a little bit before i called the vet. he said to switch from kaytees soft sorbent natural scented bedding to unscented bedding. that the lavender oil in the bedding has been know to cause health issues in small pets.
