Thread: Puppy or pampers pads as bedding?

  1. #1

    Default Puppy or pampers pads as bedding?

    Hi all, I have two 4 month old mini lops who aren't so great at using the 2 litter trays yet (boy is neutered, girl will be spayed at 6 months). I had been using no bedding in an attempt to litter train in their large indoor cage, but the vet recommended I change this to puppy or pampers pads plus hay as the boy isn't great at keeping himself clean and dry. Does anyone else have experience with using pads? Which ones? I'm worried about the synthetic materials used if the buns nibble them, and the cost!

    I've started using hay as bedding which has led to great big mulchy piles of pee and poop next to the litter tray! They do use the trays too.

    Any other experience and advice with litter training young buns is also much appreciated thanks all.

    I use puppy pads for my Guinea Pigs enclosure, they are great and very absorbant.

    These are the one's I have found to be the best :-

    They also do a pack of 100 for 12.99.

    Yep. I use them too. I started doing so when my boy had a sore hock and I didn't want it to get infected. Really good.

    I used those for my bunnies when I had them. They were great, really convenient and easy to dispose of.

    Would rabbits not chew them? I've not heard of these being used before but I might try it if it's safe for them

    My Piggies have had the odd nibble but nothing much!
