Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and comfy! My rats love it! Its cozy for there little paws and they even sleep on it, which never happened with wood shavings! I love that it expands that much, you really get your money's worth. For a 12 liter pack I can go on for months changing the bedding every 6-7 days. It's quite cheap also, it's just so worth it, for them as much as for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product ! My guinea pig loves this bedding. I've used all kinds of colors and varieties. I love the different color options so when you want to change something up you can still use the same brand just change the color . I've tried so many other bedding options and this is by far the best I've used !

Is the size being sold referring to compressed or expanded?  If it is being sold as 60 liters, is it in the expanded quantity?

Asked by: Mark
The 60 liters is the useable, expanded volume once the package is opened.

Is this safe as a Bearded Dragon substrate?

Asked by: tylyn3x
carefresh® bedding was developed for small animals, though some customers use it with other species. We always suggest checking with your local vet first before using it for an off-label use, such as reptiles. If you do use carefresh® bedding for a species other than the small animals listed, just be sure to watch them closely when you introduce the bedding for the first time.

What kind of paper fibers are these? I think my child is allergic to this when she lets her rabbit on her and never had a problem before this. 

Asked by: Ceej
It is a sustainable product that is made from natural wood fiber sourced from partnerships with tissue and paper manufacturers. If it is the natural bedding that might be causing the reaction, we suggest trying the White bedding instead which comes only from White virgin reclaimed paper.

What is the odor control formula? The recent bag smells more strongly than usual. I have used this bedding since my mice were young with no problems, but the new bag has put me on edge. I don't want to put their sensitive lungs at risk.

Asked by: River
The exact formula is proprietary but all of our odor control ingredients are found in human grade products like facial tissue. Our source of reclaimed fiber can vary and cause a change in the smell of the bedding. If you have concerns, please call us at 800-242-2287 or email

Place one to three inches CritterCare® 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.
