    Sneezing pig, should I change beddings?

    Hello! I’ve had my piggies for about 1,5 month, and they have been sneezing regularly during this time. Not really excessively but in total I hear them sneeze around 10 times a day (though this is combined, not per guinea pig). When this started I called the vet and they said it was most likely...

    Fleece Bedding Laundry Nightmare

    So I have had a fleece liner for a long time now, and since I got tired of handwashing it, I decided to buy a pet laundry bag so I could wash it in the laundry machine. Yesterday, I tried out the laundry bag for the first time. I only have one fleece liner, so I placed that inside the bag and...

    Fleece bedding vs Shavings?

    Hi My boyfriend and I have been thinking about getting guinea pigs as a friend has them and we just fell in love. We've been doing lots of research and asking our friend for advice. Our friend uses shavings for her three piggies, and we were going to do the same until, during some online...

    Fed Up with Fleece

    Hiya, Got a question to you guinea pig owners. What are some good, relatively hassle-free bedding alternatives for a piggy that's prone to respiratory infections? One of my boys was diagnosed and the vet recommended to switch back to fleece as the sawdust was too dusty. I had to switch the...

    How can I secure my fleece down on a regular cage to prevent burrowing?

    Hi everyone, I just got a new fleece to line my cage but one of my piggies Madison keeps burrowing underneath it! Since it’s not a C&C cage I can’t clip it to anything and it fits the cage perfectly so can’t tuck it under/over anything. I’ve tried putting her bowl in one of the corners but she...

    Eating fleece

    Well everyone, looks like Eve ate some fleece last week and now she has an overnight stay at the emergency vet to go poop. I had one of those fleece forests and she ate part of the strings that hang down. Safe to say, I'm sad and mad, but I know she will be feeling better soon and be back at...

    The perfect bedding

    So I have come to realize that some of the fleece I bought which I thought was a great price is kinda inadequate. They are too thin and get smelly pretty quickly. So I was wondering what do other people use I have seen some bathmats, rugs, and some other types of fleece but I can't seem to pin a...

    Cleaning fleeces

    Hey everyone! Sure this is an obvious answer but I’m thinking about changing the bedding to fleece but I don’t know what detergent and everything to use as last time I tried it didn’t end too well 😬 Thanks :)

    Recommendations on cosy beds

    Does any one have any recommendations (links if possible) for some cosier beds? Recently moved to fleece bedding and they’re loving it, would love to put some more snuggly items in. I’ve seen pictures of guineas sleeping in sort of cat bed looking things, I’ve had a little search but nothing’s...

    Mattress Covers for Fleece Bedding

    Hi, so I'm in the process of making fleece bedding. I want to make the ones where you sandwich the absorbent material inbetween two layers of fleece so it's easy to change and wash altogether. I have heard that mattress covers are a good option, would you all agree? And can someone recommend...

    towels under fleece?

    Looking for people's opinions...

    For a while I've been wanting to change to "reusable puppy pads" for under my girls fleeces. Has anyone done this? And what are their thoughts. I really like using regular puppy pads for absorbing, but I'm trying to make the pigs as environmentally friendly as possible, and this is a big part of...

    Smelly fleece :/

    After switching to fleece it’s so far been cost effective, clean and neat. However, after only two days a urine smell has taken over my room. I made the cage liners myself, with a mattress topper in the middle of 2 fleece sheets. I spot clean daily, and I have pads for high traffic areas but...

    FLEECE ADDICTION !

    So in my last endeavour for fleece I had bought some cheapy fleece throws that would NOT wick. So I went and got some good quality fleece. I am adamant on switching to fleece as bedding is just so expensive and messy. I now have a fleece addiction, the designs are just too cute! A question...

    fleece issues

    I recently decided to switch to fleece bedding for my pigs. Unfortunately it’s quite hard to find fleece where I am, but I found polar fleece throws at Kmart. I think they are similar to ones from Walmart and Joanns (if you are American, I’m from Australia) It’s 100% polyester. I have now washed...

    How much fleece?

    Hey everyone! I'm new to the forum! You can call me Clover :) I've had my two guinea pigs (Missy and Luna) for about 8 months now, but they are nearly four years old. Since I got them, I've been using aspen wood shavings in their cage, but I want to change over to fleece. I've weighed the pros...

    Incontinence pads

    Hiya! Looking for absorbent layer for under fleece - the 100x140 version of these would fit my cage perfectly. Would they work well? I'm guessing I would just need fleece on the upside because their bottom is already water resistant? 7 Sizes Washable Reusable Bed Pad Incontinence Bed Wetting...

    Anti-pill plush fleece as bedding?

    I’m looking to start making my own fleece liners, but there are more options if I use anti-pill plush fleece. Is this okay to use? What’s the different between it and just regular anti-pill?
