    What is the best bedding?

    Right now I’m using aspen wood chips. I know it isn’t bad for guinea pigs, but I’m sure other stuff (like care fresh, yesterday's news etc.) would be better.

    Here is a list of different kinds of bedding I’ve gotten off of http://www.guinealynx.info/bedding.html and a few other websites:
    Aspen shavings
    Care fresh
    Cell-sorb
    Crown animal bedding
    Eco Bedding
    Megazorb
    Soft-Sorbent Bedding
    Wood pellets
    Yesterday’s news (or any other recycled paper)

    From personally experiences what do you think is the best bedding based on price/absorbent/dust etc.? Feel free to suggest other kinds of bedding. I just want the best for my piggy.

    Also, I only have one guinea pig at the time, but I am planning of getting one or two more in the future.

    Thanks!!!

    most likely fleece is safest and cheapest but it takes a lot of cleaning and you need to change it out like every 2-4 days or it may smell

    If you'll search this site for bedding and look at the posts in the last two months, you'll find hours worth of reading of people's opinions on what is the best bedding.
