Default anyone else notice this ( fleece liner issue)

I used to use newspaper shavings as the bedding until i made liners. I was so excited and matched everythign together till when i switched to liners my whole room smelled so bad. Leo is litter trained only poos naturally on the liner cause of the wheel. I spot cleaned and everything but the smell was so bad i switched back. Anyone else have such a problem? How should i solve it or should i not bother. He seems happy either way.

I have used liners with up to 15 hedies in one room at a time and have never had problems with smell unless I didn't clean the wheels and litter pans daily. I only change liners twice weekly and that seems to work perfectly, no smell.

The only time I've had issues with bad smells there is usually another cause. Most of the time it has been due to diet or a health issue. How old is this hedgehog and what foods are you feeding? Occasionally foods that most hedgehogs do well on, an individual may not tolerate well and may have smelly stool from it.

A lot of people notice that their hedgie has stinky poo if there is fish in their food.

I think it may depend on how often you are changing the liner out. I change mine once or twice a week, and that's usually fine. There's no apparent smell unless the wheel or litter tray is also dirty.

I change the liner once a week, and the wheel is cleaned once a day/once every other day. It doesn't smell. Well, the wheel/litterbox do if I leave it for 2 days *gross*.

Is your hog litter trained? Do you have a litter box that catches his poop/pee at the bottom of his wheel? It helps a lot when you can clean that area regularly

I have two female hedgies (mother and daughter)in the same cage on flannel/fleece liner. They have two wheels in their cage and I have not had a problem with smell. There is a aluminum tray that I use for under the wheels. I use paper pellets as my litter. This works out great for me but I also think I have really clean hedgies...they keep their cage clean on their own. It is kinda nice.

I don't have any problems with smell. Somethings you might consider
- fish in the diet = stinky!
- what's underneith the wheel? If nothing, try laying a baking sheet with some papertowel. The papertowel can then be changed each day
- newspaper has dyes & other toxins it it, it is not a good choice for liners. Good options would be liners or woodchips (check type)
