Guinea Pig & Rabbit Natural Paper Bedding

Guinea Pig & Rabbit natural paper bedding is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It can’t get any better than this! Okay, first of all this is incredibly soft! My hamsters’ burrows all stay up extremely well! Non of my pets are litter trained so the poo is everywhere but CareFresh does an amazing job and keeping the Odor down! Since I have large cages and spot clean daily, one cage lasts an entire month! With small animals, it is incredibly important to have a low dust bedding and this gets the job just right! The variety in size pieces makes it easy for my critters to nest. They grab the larger flakes and make a nice comfortable nest! It’s amazing! You need to at least try this! Your pet will thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect bedding for my rabbits and hamster! This in the only product that I use for my rabbits and hamster. I’ve had issues in the past with one of my rabbits digging all her litter out of the box, since I changed her to Carefresh she has completely stopped and loves to lay in it. I also use it for my hamster, it does everything I wanted it to! He loves to tunnel in it, and use it as nesting material. It’s also a great product for me as an owner because it makes cleaning the cages easier because it’s super absorbent and controls Oder well, considering how light and fluffy it is, it packs a big punch! The first thing that drew me to this product was the fun colours it comes in, and ever since I bought my first bag I can’t seem to stop using it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gotta love carefresh Carefresh review I buy my animals the 30L bags and they love it! I noticed with beddings such as Aspen the cages would get a odor and be less comfortable as well as making a huge mess. Carefresh has amazing odor control. Carefresh brand always has felt so softest! My only 1 complaint with it is the fact that it will become dirty fairly quickly but, as long as my pets are comfortable I don't even care about that minor issue. Many people I know whom are into pet keeping agree it is definitely one of the best! They all agree it has amazing odor control as well as being soft and, is easy for the pets to burrow in and nearly dust free! ( Marketed for guinea pig and rabbit use. Works for many more animals)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product out there! I work at a local pet store and I am always recommending Carefresh to all small animal owners out there. I have a little Guinea Pig of my own and love Carefresh! It is safe, environmentally friendly, and affordable! I am a full time college student, too, so that's saying something! I love this because it is 25% bigger and is more fun for my piggy to play in. The odor control on this product is absolutely astonishing. I highly recommend it!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guinea Pig Heaven! I work at a Pet Store and I can definitely say that I am always recommending Carefresh to everyone. We use it for our small animals and my very own Guinea Pig absolutely LOVES it! I like all of the Carefresh, and recommend any version of it. I personally like to use the custom Guinea Pig bedding because it's 25% bigger for my piggy. I love the fact that Carefresh is virtually dust free, has amazing odor control, and comes in fun colors for you to express. I highly recommend Carefresh to anyone with a small animal!

Is this compostable?

Asked by: Monica
Yes, you can compost the bedding. However, fecal matter in concentrations can take a long time to compost or pose health risks. Please check with compositing experts on how to most safely compost pet litters and wait 120 days before using according to published guidelines.

What is the difference between Custom and Complete?  I have a guinea pig and I do not understand the difference. 

Asked by: Tamara
Custom bedding for Guinea Pigs and Rabbits has 25% larger pieces than the regular Complete bedding so it's easier for them to pile and curl up in and harder to kick out of their habitat.

Product Info

Ideal Size for Nesting

At carefresh® we're devoted to small mammals, their human parents and the environment we all share. That's why we created carefresh® custom, the first bedding made specifically for the different small mammal species' unique needs. Our guinea pig and rabbit products are the perfect size for nesting, so they stay warm, dry and comfortable. We could just shred plain paper, but then we wouldn't be carefresh®.

10-Day Odor Control

Our proprietary Odor formula has been proven in independent tests to suppress ammonia odors for 10 days - keeping your home smelling fresh and clean longer.

3X More Absorbent than Shavings

Made from natural reclaimed paper fibers, we've designed our bedding to absorb 3 times more liquid than wood shavings - ensuring small pets stay warm and dry all day long.

99% Dust Free for Easy Clean-Up

Our unique material and manufacturing process ensures our bedding is virtually dust-free and won't fall apart or stick to the bottom of the habitat - so you can breathe and clean-up easy.

25% Larger Pieces

Custom made for guinea pigs and rabbits, we've crafted our bedding blend to include larger pieces so it's easier to pile and curl up in - helping rabbits and guinea pigs stay happy, healthy and active all day long.

Natural without Compromise

carefresh® custom natural paper bedding is designed specially for small mammals and made from 100% sustainable and renewable paper fibers, never any post-consumer waste paper just shredded and put into a bag. All of our bedding products are also 100% biodegradable and compostable, so you get superior performance along with a product that's good for your pet and good for the planet.


Instructions for Use

Place one to three inches of carefresh® custom Guinea Pig Rabbit natural paper bedding in your pet’s habitat depending on the number of pets housed. Remove damp spots or soiled areas between changes and replace with fresh bedding.   When changing bedding types or brands, it is best to mix old and new bedding, changing over the course of 7-10 days.


As with any substrate, there is a potential risk of impaction if your pet ingests a sufficient amount of bedding. Observe your pet and seek veterinary care if you suspect impaction of the GI tract.
