Default "How often do you change their potty pad?"

I swear there was just a thread of this same exact nature but I can't for the life of me find it, I don't know why because I feel like I JUST saw it recently but I'm going to ask again because I want to know what you guys said/say...

How often do you swap out potty pads for indoor poo/pee-ers?

Well, I pick up the poo right when they do it or I spot it..It can easily stink up the room, so I pick it up with some toilet paper and flush it down the toilet. I usually change it a couple times a day, but I have like 3 pads throughout my apartment in hidden spots.

Same here, I pick up the poo right away, then usually the pee pad after he's used it two or three times. He's a small thing, so his pee spots aren't that big.

I don't use disposable pads. I use washable ones (human bed liners for incontinence) so I don't have to swap out so often...and less waste for the landfills. Anyway, BM is picked up immediately and pads are taken up every evening if it's a sunny day. More often if it rains because they use them more. Mind you, I have several pads plus a doggy door so they generally go in and out throughout the day. And this is for the adults, not when I have pups or a mom and litter. Those are changed several times throughout the day because they are messier.

I use paper, as in newspaper.. and as soon as its soiled I just remove it and toss it, and lay down new paper.
We get tons of free weeklies so it's a good way to re-use them.
