Question How do you clean out degus cages and how often


What is the normal care routine for degus, are there special needs that your degus have to have to keep them content within their environment?

Amethystbelle is on a distinguished road
Degus aren't all that dirty compared to a lot of rodents and they omit little to no odour, they have no real special cage care needs and the only thing they request is that they really have a wheel and a snuggly hammock to sleep in On a day to day basis i spot clean all my cages and give all the shelves a quick sweep, replenish the food bowls and they all have fresh hay. Once a week i replace any soiled bedding, wripe down the surfaces with a vinegar solution and give the food bowls a good scrub. Then once a month the cages are stripped down and disinfected thoroughly and we always put them back together slightly differently to give them a new environment to explore
