Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only thing I will use for my dwarf hamsters. I Only use carefresh naturals bedding for my hamsters. It is safe and I don't have to worry about them getting poked in the eyes or nose when they burrow. We tried another brand and it caused a permanent cough in on of hamsters who ultimately had to be put down for cancer on her neck. It means so much that is safe and doesn't even aggrevate my allergies! I used this when I had guinea pigs too. I have one senior dwarf hammie named 'baby hammie' left and she has been a very happy hammie in this bedding. It is not safe for my chinchillas because they will eat it and will cause impaction but when they don't have access to bedding, it works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Litter! I have 2 hamster, one dwarf hamster and one Syrain Hamster. These hamsters do not share the same cage. Anyway, in both of their cages, I use carefresh complete. Both hamsters absolutely love the bedding! They like to burrow and build "huts" with the bedding! Also, the bedding is absorbant. I would recommend that all hamster owners buy CareFresh Complete since hamsters love it! Also, I love how different litters are created for the different holidays! It makes the cage festive and allows the hamsters to participate in some of the holiday fun!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I currently have a Longhair Syrian Hamster named Ginger. She is living in a 40 gallon tank. I love this bedding! It is super absorbent, soft and the colors go well with any cage theme! My hammy loves to dig in this bedding and create tunnels at the bottom. Out of all the bedding types I have used in the past, carefresh paper bedding is the best option! I love how the bedding is dust free because I know it is safe for my pet. This bedding also controls the odors of my female very well, which is a good thing as the tank resides in my bedroom. All in all, carefresh is a great option for any pet owner and for any pet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My rats love it and so do I I started buying Carefresh Bedding because I noticed it's manufactured in my hometown of Ferndale, Washington and I like to support the local economy. However, after a year of using it and trying a few other types of bedding when Carefresh wasn't available, I noticed that Carefresh is hands (and paws) down the best bedding out there. Although the colors look nice, I prefer to put my ratites in the all natural bedding. The odor control bedding is best. I'm very sensitive to animal smells and I never smell my house smelling like rats live there. My rats like to burrow and play and nest in the bedding all day long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff for our rabbits Our two rabbits love this stuff when I change their cage I don't have to separate it they like to do it themselves an organize where it goes if o try to do it myself I get stomped at an they don't let me pet them for the rest of the day. We have a local small animal shelter an this is the only bedding they accept for their animals we donate to them regularly. I couldn't see owning a small animal without this stuff it's great I'm not a fan of the ones with color in them they don't seem to work as well as the all natural one but that's ok the colors are only for look an looks don't matter if the bunnies aren't happy. Thank you for creating an selling such a wonderful product.

is there a chemical or additive that makes up the new "odor stop" formula? if not, what makes it so?

Asked by: vicki
The additives used in our products for odor control are approved in the use of treating drinking water, and evaluated by third party labs using NIH (National Institute of Health) testing protocol for animal safety.

What if your pet eats it?

Asked by: Jazz
As with any change to your pet's environment, there is a potential risk of impaction if your pet ingests a significant amount of its bedding. If you suspect impaction, discontinue use immediately and seek veterinary care. Always monitor your pet very closely at first after changing to a new bedding to see if they will possibly ingest it.

Is it safe to use for snakes?

Asked by: Applejacks
carefresh was developed for small animals only so we always suggest checking with your local reptile vet first before using it for an off label use such as reptiles, especially due to their eating habits.

Instructions for Use

Place one to three inches of carefresh® complete natural paper bedding in your pet's habitat depending on the number and type of pets housed. Change bedding weekly or as needed. Remove damp spots or soiled areas between changes and replace with fresh bedding. As with any substrate, there is a potential risk of impaction if your pet ingests a sufficient amount of bedding.
