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.
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.
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.
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 :)
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.

The first bag I purchased was perfect. Great odor control. Soft and long lasting. The next bag and all the same bags at the pet stores now have a chemical smell. Very overpowering. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Laurie Burchick
