So when asked if I was interested in reviewing the Carefresh Custom Natural Paper Bedding, I was initially going to say no. However, then I remembered that the bearded dragons we had could use newspaper bedding and it was actually much healthier than anything using wood chips which can negatively affect their respiratory system. The dragons can smell something horrific since the tend to defecate quite frequently now that they are grown.
Using new Odor Stop + Baking Soda formula which can "provide 10 days of odor control (4 days longer than other paper bedding brands)", this product has already made a huge difference in our household. Alana keeps her dragons in her room where as you can imagine, it can get quite stinky if not cleaned constantly. She has noticed a huge difference in the smell in that there seems to be much less, giving her more time between bedding changes.
Also made int he USA, the Carefresh bedding consists of more than just ingredients like shredded paper and shavings. It is comfortable for the small animals plus environmentally friendly and healthier for pets or people. I am even looking forward to using this once we bring rabbits or chickens in the Spring to our house/farm mix. We were very happy with the quality and results for just the Bearded Dragons.

Recommendation: I thought this bedding worked great especially in comparison to the products we've used in the past for small animals. The quality was both effective in the reduction of smells as well as easy to clean and the dragons loved it!
