Mouse Cage Maintenance

Make a weekly maintenance schedule to keep your mouse’s cage clean.

Remove soiled bedding every day from your mouse’s cage to reduce odor and keep your small pet healthy. Replace it with fresh bedding to keep ammonia levels down in your mouse’s cage.

Wash out food bowls and water bottles every day. Remove uneaten food each day and replace with fresh food.

Once a week, wash out your mouse’s cage completely. Scrub the cage bars and floor with hot water and biodegradable dish soap, rinse completely and let it dry in the sun, if possible. Toys and accessories should be washed too.
