Preparation and Usage

How to help your pet adjust to EcoShred Bed Bedding?

With new bedding it is important to give your pet time to adjust to the new bedding. Your pet will adjust quicker if you mix this bedding with existing pet bedding for 1-2 weeks. Slowly remove previous pet bedding and replace with Ecoshred Bed when cleaning the cage.

1 Use a clean tray to fill the tray with Ecoshred Bed with a layer of 4-5cm.

2 Regularly remove soiling and solid waste using a litter scoop.

3 Every 2-3 weeks* remove the bedding and empty the tray and spray with healthy organic microbes to keep the healthy bacteria working for odour control and respiratory health. Ecoshred Pet Bedding is 100% biodegradable and can be disposed into the bin or compost bin.

*This varies on type of pet and depends on age and size of the as well but we’ve tested our system with the messiest of pets!
