Long-time ferret owner here, with three in house currently.

If you don't want your place to smell of ferret, and you want the ferrets to litter train, clean the cage twice a week. There's urine, feces and food that get in the bedding. Cleaning twice a week keeps the smell down, keeps them from having to lay in the dirty bedding (which they will do), and prevents roaches and other bugs from being drawn to the cage.

To last a year??? It works much better to spend per month... But clean the cage out completely once a week and as needed if they make messes. So, 52 times a year. Suggest 3 months money instead. Learn to save and budget money instead of hoard it. :3 Hope you can get a fuzzy.

Let's put it this way- I clean my rabbits cage at least once a week. Ferrets can be fairly stinky. Your question should ask. "How many times in a week do I need to clean his cage?"

You have to do daily clean-ups (put on a rubber glove and put the waste in a baggy) and you have to completely change out the bedding once a week. I clean my pet's cage every Saturday afternoon outside with a hose and little bit of vinegar to rid the urine deposits. One bag of CareFresh will last for about a month, so that's 12 bags a year: resulting in almost $200 a year on bedding alone. Keep in mind that you will have to buy food and treats and toys and such. Good luck!

You will have to scoop out their litter box (If it's clean, a ferret will always go in it's litter box!) at least every other day and you should use a triangle-shaped litter pan since they walk backwards into a corner when they have to go. That's the hardest part. Aside from cleaning the litter box, you'll have to put bedding in his cage which should be replaced every two-four weeks or so. I think the bedding in their cage is where their smell comes from, so if you keep it clean, they won't smell bad. (Most ferrets you buy will already be fixed and de-scented, so the rumors about ferrets smelling bad isn't really true any more). It is also a good idea to put their bedding (if it's wood) into the freezer for a day or so before you put it in their cage, just in case.
I alternate between two food dishes and feed them dry food, so all I really have to do is run them under some warm water to keep them clean, and I put their water bottle in the dish washer about once every two weeks. My ferrets love using a hammock, and their fur will build up in it so I'll put it through the washing machine when that happens, but it takes a pretty long time. Aside from that, you can empty out the cage and scrub everything down once every couple months, but you could wait longer if you want... my cage never really gets too dirty. Good luck with your new pet! Try to find a friend who has a ferret in their home, and let your little fuzzy have a playmate. Ferrets are usually very social and enjoy each others company. I have a pair, which is good for me because I cannot play with them all the time and they keep each other company when I can't be there. I hope this helps!

Always have food in the cage, unless you notice your pet getting chubby, then twice a day, no exceptions. Do not ever let your pet go hungry.

2 tablespoons of hamster food once a day, and a small amount of fresh vegetables once a day but research what veggies are good for hamsters because some will give them diarrhea. Change their water every day even if there's water left in the bottle, because it can get bacteria in it.

You should feed your hamster when you clean your cage which should be once a week. If you know that you are going to be unable to clean your hamster's cage at that specific time then just refill the water and food.

CareFresh Ultra bedding is, in my opinion, the best bedding for rodents. It cannot make them sick like pine and cedar bedding can, it's white so you can watch for blood or other signs of illness, it's not super dusty, and it's easy to scoop up when you are cleaning the cage.

150 liters in Carefresh is three of the large bags (white litter only) I am saying this because the brown Carefresh litter has 60 liters to a large bag. I like to use the white liter better being that when my bunny excretes you can see it can clean it up so she doesn't have to live in smelly habitat. I have Cube and Coroplast cage but she has her liter box and a 2 grid by 2 grid area of bedding in coroplast box. One 50 liter bag will last her about 4 changes I change it about once a week because it gets dusty and if I don't, she gets respiratory problems. Hope this helped:)

Hi, the 50 liter bag is the biggest one they have. It is pretty big and carefresh comes compacted so when you get the product out make sure you fluff it. A bag lasts me a long time, but depends on the type of pet you have and how often you change the litterbox. I recommend buying it in bulk (50 Lt) because you reduce waste.

No, it is not dusty. It is compressed, so you just pull some out and crumble it to break it up into the litter pan or wherever you want to use it .

Only get this ultra bedding. never get pine never get that paper shredded stuff. What I do is I get the ultra bedding and I get those chewy cardboard rolls for rats and mice and I buy two of them and I throw the letter on top and every month I'll replace that. Rats are very much engineers and creators they like to build and make their own places. Also found the generic version of this does not work as well as ultra ultra last longer has a much more pleasant scent.

Hello, I am an animal specialist in Miami and Aspen, Wood, Cedar, or pine based bedding or litters are Very and Highly harmful to any pet. Many buy these products fro their aromas and Oder eliminating powers but this is were the deadly problems lie! The odor is from the natural volatile chemicals in the wood called phenols. Phenois is highly dangerous and can kill you pet. I have lost many pets and so have my clients to these beddings and litter. But I do Highly Recommend CareFresh Paper based bedding, Paper (with no ink or dye) shaving or Hay. Paper based products are best because there are no chemicals and are very clean.

The paper bedding is compressed when placed into the package and it does fluff up or expand once out of the shrink-wrapping, so you should look for a 10L container for a 10L bag. If 1 liter is 33 oz or so, you're looking at 330oz, or maybe a 2 1/2 gallon container.
