Safe Wheels

The Wodent Wheel has been recommended by many people and it seems that our pet rodents love the wheel’s entrance holes & feel more secure because of them. They also avoid the threat of damaged limbs & broken bones, which comes with unsuitable wheels. Although the Wodent Wheel can be provided for many species and will be loved by most of them; please bear in mind; some animals love to chew!
Wodent Wheels can be disassembled for trouble-free cleaning and are constructed of tough, safe plastic with a stable base of heavy-gauge painted steel.

This wheel is a solid based wheel and big enough for mice, dwarf hamsters and small Syrian hamsters. You can buy this type of wheel in most pet stores and shouldn’t cost you too much money.

DANGEROUS WHEELS

 

This type of wheel is by far the most unsafe of all pet rodent wheels, along with with any other open runged wheel, whether plastic or metal! The open spaces between the rungs is not a surface that any pet rodent in the wild would ever walk on, let alone run on and could very easily miss a step and have a limb fall through and cause pain and suffering to our cuties!
Stick with a solid based wheel, a wheel big enough and safe enough for all our precious rodents!
