I am having a very hard time looking for Carefresh bedding recently. It’s pretty rare in the Philippines since most pet supply stores don’t have it; the only option you have is to buy online. But then, the stores easily run out of stock as well, since it’s a really popular brand and many who have tried it prefer it over wood shavings.
This is actually the reason why I thought of making my own guinea pig bedding myself. Another reason is that Carefresh can be really pricey in the Philippines. I looked up some video tutorials on how to make the bedding and tried it awhile ago! Now, the sample batch still hasn’t dried so I can’t tell yet whether it’s as good as the real Carefresh or not. I’ll keep you guys posted!
For now, here are some photos of what I did in making the homemade bedding:
If the homemade bedding turns out well, I will post a how-to on how I did it. Till then! 🙂
