8 litter to last me a year!!
« on: June 17, 2012, 08:48:48 PM »
I'm very happy with this, so I have to share!

I heard a lot of good reviews on Finacard (not sure if you have it in the US but I believe it's the same sort of thing as Ecobed- just shredded cardboard)
My previous litter was 10 for 25ltr. I can't remember exactly what that was in weight, but it was roughly 7kg and about 6 weeks' worth.
I was placing a food order on ratrations.com and saw a bale of Finacard for 8. A bale is 15-17kg!!
It didn't add anything to my shipping either since I already ordered so much else  :P
So I bought a bale.

Skip a week or so and the girls had started sneezing, but I put it down to a change in litter and decided to ride it out and watch for changes. It started getting worse and congested so it was med time.
I asked on another forum if anyone had had similar issues with resp problems from Finacard and a rep from Finacard contacted me.
He said they now had a new improved processing method which meant significantly less dust and that he would send me a free bale to try out.
The girls seem largely fine with the bedding now, so I think it was probably a one-time adjustment.
I've filled up about 6 litter trays and it's barely made a dent!
That means I paid 8 for up to 34kg of litter that could quite literally last me a year.
Bargain I say!

Jealous!  What a great company.  I wish we had that, it is similarish to ecobedding but way way cheaper since ours isn't used for horses.

I could probably do with moving some of it to be honest. 1 bale is taking up too much room already!
