Would this work for a guinea pig?
Answer by ChewyAug 06, 2019
Guinea pigs' spines are not designed to be bent backwards, and doing so can cause severe pain and even permanent damage. Because of this, you should never put your guinea pig in an exercise ball or wheel.

Would the large work for rabbits?
Answer by ChewyDec 02, 2019
Rabbits can't use a running wheel or ball. Hamsters and gerbils have a much more flexible spine, rabbits do not. A rabbit has a long stride that could not be accommodated by a wheel. It is better to just let a rabbit run around on the ground in a safe area.

Can this be attached to the cage?
Answer by ChewyOct 21, 2019
This wheel can be attached to your cage using the Silent Runner Cage Attachment. At this time, this attachment is available directly through the manufacturer.

Answer by ChewyFeb 17, 2020

decent wheel but not the best out there

I own the 12” wheel for a Syrian hamster I bought this wheel September 4th of 2020 so I’m coming up on my second year with this wheel, so as much as I’m about to tear into this wheel, I can at least say it does last a long time. Currently it still has no issues. This was the first hamster wheel I ever ordered so naturally I was very excited to have something large enough for my big boy and something said to be quiet, and well, it definitely is large enough but it’s just sort of quiet. If you place the wheel too close to the edge of your cage (bin or tank… anything with walls) it wobbles and slaps into the sides making loud clanking noises. And well, yes this could be fixed by just moving the wheel but it’s extremely tedious to constantly be moving the wheel back into a place where it won’t be hitting the walls, because this isn’t just a one time thing you’re going to encounter, the wheel wobbles every time your hamster runs on it and the wheel shifts due to this. But it is *technically* a silent wheel other than this. One of the most annoying things for me though is the extremely small amount of space given between the stand and the wheel itself, this isn’t an issue if you have a wire cage, but if you have a tank or bin it is. You have to sacrifice the amount of bedding provided to your hamster in order to fit the wheel in. This is one of the main reasons why I do not recommend this wheel for hamster parents. There are wheels in similar price ranges that allow for more customization. Not to mention this wheel is a pain to clean, taking it apart and putting it back together every time you want to clean it is a lot more than a simple rinse with other wheels.

Perfect wheel!

I'm obsessed with these wheels. I have three, one for each of my hams. They're super silent and very tough. I've had one ever since I first started keeping hamsters. They're unlike other brands of wheels that become squeaky over time. Also, a bonus: if you lose a part like I did, Exotic Nutrition sells replacement parts on their website. Very handy!

i honestly do not recommend this at all

When I was first looking at this wheel, I just ignore all of the bad reviews and trust that it would be a good product, but it was not. The first maybe two weeks my Syrian ran on this wheel it was pretty silent. But then it started to get very loose and even after tightening it would sit at an angle and bang against the metal stand because of how tilted it was. It has woken me up multiple times almost every single night. This is honestly a terrible product and I would not recommend if you have a Syrian.

Immediate favorite!

Sorrel’s favorite pastime is to organize her things, so she immediately came to check on what goody the human left for her this time. It’s been 45 minutes and she’s still running!

I highly recommend this wheel ( the 8 in) for smaller hamsters than a syrian. it is super silent, except its base is NOT sturdy. perhaps if you taped it down or had it sitting on a flat surface it would be, but it wiggles and rocks when my fat Syrian tries to run on it. but maybe if i got the bigger size it wouldn't be. it's a little pricy in my opinion.

very breakable

Have gone thru 2 of them now. The plastic is very weak and easily damageable. Unless you know your animals don’t chew at all don’t get these styles

Great for Syrian Hamsters

Purchased for my male Syrian hamster after he outgrew his 10" wheel and he loves it. Nearly silent! Just wish the plastic was higher quality - if you have a female hamster or use it for young rats, it will likely be chewed through. Metal base is very nice as well!

My Hamster Loves It

I got this to replace the wheel that came with my Syrian hamster's cage, which he wouldn't even go in (at least not that I ever saw). Pretty much as soon as I put this one in the cage, he was on it! And he's on it every night! I've had it for a couple of weeks and so far it's still silent. The only problem I have is keeping it clean. You have to disassemble it in order to properly clean it because things, like pee-soaked bedding, get stuck in the grooves where the track is held in place. You have to remove a front and back piece from the track and it's kind of a pain to take apart. Overall, I'm very happy with it because my hammie is happy.

stable and silent!

my hamster loves this wheel. it is mostly silent as advertised, however if its placed on an uneven surface it may start making a "thunking" sound, but the spin is silent. its also relatively easy to clean in case your animal likes to use the bathroom in their wheel like mine does. i sincerely recommend this product for hamsters! :)

A decent wheel for my rats

Firstly, the color does not match the picture, it is actually a subdued olive green, not the lighter green in the picture. That was mildly disappointing to me. Secondly, I did not realize I could not just attach this to the side of the cage and I found out that doing so requires having to buy a separate piece! Grr. Would have been the perfect suggested sell when I added this to my cart because of course I want to put it on the side of the cage! Thirdly, it does spin nice and is relatively quiet. It's nice and smooth, good components, and very stable. Easy enough to clean, and the rats actually use it! Not sure it was worth the price but it'll do.
