Just wondering what a safe time frame would be to place liners back in Paco's cage after treatment for possible mites. I have paper towels in there right now, but his is knocking over the food/water dish a couple times a night. I do have fleece strips in his igloo, but change those morning and night as well as was the igloo out. He had a treatment on Thurs, and I am supposed to another dose in two weeks time.

The vet did a scraping, and did not find anything, but with the quill loss figured it would be a good idea to treat him anyways.

My vet told me to keep him on papertowels, change them every day and rinse out his cage and cage items very well with bleach water once a week (preferably right after his mite treatment). after the two weeks of mite treatments they should be all gone and he should be able to go back on his liners. but that might be something you wanna ask your vet.
