I had been purchasing another type of guinea pig bedding on Amazon for quite some time. It was the same brand, but a different line. This bedding is the "Plus" bedding whereas the other bedding I had been purchasing was the "Ultra" bedding. However, when I noticed that the product that I had been buying was literally six times the price of this one when you break it down by dollar/volume, I decided to give this one a try.

I will note that there is definitely a difference between this bedding and the brand's Ultra bedding. There is also some dust with this product, whereas there was none with the "Ultra" bedding. I have an Austin Air filter in the room that they are in though so that doesn't really bother me. The guinea pigs seem to like it just the same as the "Ultra" and considering the price is six times less than the "Ultra" I will be going forward with this product instead from now on, unless any issues develop down the line. If they do, I will update this review.

Overall I have to say I am very pleased with the product. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because of the dust. With that being said, it is not worth it to me to spend six times as much on a product just to avoid a little bit of dust so this product is definitely the smarter choice.

CareFresh changed their formulation in 2015. Many reports of mite infestations were made, several pets died--it's all documented on the web. If you want more information, check out Hamster Hideout's forum thread on safe bedding.

I'd been using the bedding for my hamster for 1.5 years when just this year the texture, smell, and dustiness changed considerably. Sure enough, a short time after using it, my hamster got mites (diagnosed by a vet).

There is no doubt in my mind that everyone should stay far, far away from CareFresh products. They have been silent regarding the pet deaths and mite infestations in their "reformulated" products.

My rabbit loves this bedding as do I . I have tried about every other type of bedding for him. My bunny is litter box trained and this is the one bedding that if I put in his litter box that is the easiest to clean. He loves to play in it and it can make a mess, but you're going to get that with any bedding and a burrowing animal. This is the only kind I buy for him.

I've bought this specific product about 2 times now from when I first got my teddy bear hamster 2 years ago. I haven't bought any other brand other than Carefresh but have used their paper bedding as well, I've also been satisfied by this one. Both types of bedding are good (this one seems to smell better longer than the paper) but I have seen some sharp chunks that I get worried about, but my hamsters been doing okay and I sometimes see him chewing on the large pieces for his always-growing teeth. Here's my cons and pros:

Pros:
1. Lasts me ~10 months (I change my hamster's 20x10x2in cage every week of 2 inches deep bedding)
2. Keeps the smell at bay longer like it claims
3. Soft, fluffy, and light that my hamster can burrow himself a nest
4. East to clean and doesn't cake as much as the paper bedding (when peed on)
5. Compacted packaging so it takes up less space but still fluffs easily
6. Great value and customer rapport.

Cons:
1. I find some rare large, sharp chunks of wood

Overall I would recommend it! I do wish the bag was recloseable but oh well, as long as the pets are happy :)

Editing our review because our rat became ill and died just days after we switched to this. I would say it was a coincidence if so many others had not had similar experiences. Now I have very sad kids and a bag of bedding we can't use for our one surviving rat. :(

Excellent product! Absorbs moisture, keeps the cage smelling fresh longer, and priced fairly! This product allows us to "spot clean" (remove soiled & wet areas, then add a bit of fresh bedding) every other day & "deep clean" (take everything out & scrub cage) once a month. The pigs are usually fresh & happy & our noses are happy!

I love purchasing Carefresh bedding through Amazon because it is always a LOT cheaper than in any pet store. I get the large 70L size for my rescue and it is one of the best beddings you can purchase for your small and furry animals. By now, most people know that using cedar, pine, or other wood shavings that include aromatic oils are absolutely toxic and possibly lethal to your small animal. Aspen shavings, and other shavings without aromatic oils are safe to use, but they are very poor at absorption of liquids and makes a bigger mess, especially if dealing with mice, rats, or rodents.

Carefresh bedding, no matter what color you get (because it is all of the same quality, the color is only for decoration!), lasts easily twice as long as aspen or other safe wood shavings, and three to four times longer than newspaper or paper towels. Not only is Carefresh bedding incredibly absorbent, but it absorbs odor as well with the liquid waste, and therefore there is a dramatic decrease in odor in the animal's habitat.

I highly recommend Carefresh, although it is noticeably more expensive than wood shavings, I am hopeful that eventually -- due to it's being made of recycled materials -- become much more cost-friendly to animal owners as it is in fact a superior product, however I can see how the higher price can drive customers away. Let me say, however, that the additional cost is actually very worth the increase in absorption, how much longer the product lasts, and how well it controls odor and waste. However, do shop around when shopping for Carefresh, as it is often cheapest online and there are many price options for sizes.

When should you change it out of your animal's cage? When it looks or smells dirty, or every two weeks, whichever should come first is my personal opinion.
