Small pet bedding is a necessity for any small pet enclosure. There are a few options from the more natural looking pine bedding in hay, to the awesome colours of carefresh bedding to brighten up any small pet enclosure.
Changing your small pets bedding regularly is critical to managing any odour from your small pets, and every pet and enclosure can be different depending on how warm it is, where it’s positioned and how many pets you have.
Through a little trial and error you will be able to maximise the length of time between changes of bedding.
