Questions & Answers

I was wondering which size would be best for a mouse?
Answer by CarrieJan 09, 2023
The 8 1/2 in wheel is the smallest size you want to buy for a mouse. Hope this helped.

how do I clip the wheel to my hamster cage
Answer by ChewyAug 12, 2019
The standing wire must first be removed. Once removed, you will place the clip between the cage bars and turn to secure in place.

Is this a suitable size for a large Syrian hamster?
Answer by ChewyDec 05, 2019
Either of these wheels is suitable for a larger Syrian hamster. Smaller and standard Syrian hamsters are better suited to the 8.5 inch size, while multi-hamster cages may benefit more from a larger wheel.

Is it quiet?
Answer by ChewyFeb 22, 2018
This exercise wheel is quiet.

I think he will like it

This wheel was a lot bigger than I expected, I got it for my hedgehog. It was really easy to attach to the cage and seems to be a very durable plastic. Easy to wipe off if necessary too. Fits perfectly and spins fine. Anything bigger than a hedgehog I would not recommend for though. It says for chinchillas but this is wayyy too small for them.

Awful Product

This wheel is so loud and noisy. It literally is worse than nails on a chalkboard. I rarely keep it in my hamsters cage because it keeps the whole house up at night..

Squeaky wheel

I like the size and color. My new Syrian hamster loves running on it. Plenty of room for her with the largest size 12”. Dislikes: I took the metal stand off and attached to it to the cage bars. The mechanism for attachment is kind of finicky. We had a smaller one of these years ago and part of the twist clamp snapped off with normal use making it unusable for cage mounting. The clamp is still the same as before so make sure it is lined up perfectly before twisting to secure. The wheel also tilts downward meaning my little fluffball is leaning as she runs. Wishing the ergonomics were better for her. This time around the deal breaker is the noise level. Within 2 days of use the wheel started squeaking badly. We know when our hamster is awake and using the wheel because we can hear the noise from the other side of the house. Thank goodness for ear plugs and fast shipping on a different wheel. Sorry, Kaytee. This product is a fail.

great for mice

Our young mice are really enjoying it. Might not be as sturdy for bigger creatures, but works really well for these little guys. So far, so good on the noise level.

Great wheel for hamsters!

So I bought this wheel for my hamster and she loves it. It does not bend her back, and it looks good in any setup. The only thingsI want to say, are 1.it is not silent. This is not a problem for me, because I like knowing that she is awake from hearing the wheel, but if you are a light sleeper, I don’t recommend this. 2. I do not think this is ok for gerbils. It is waayyyy to soft and could easily be chewed and could potentially hurt them. This is much better for hamsters, not gerbils.

great for gerbils and small syrian hamsters

this wheel is the perfect size for our baby gerbils, and they absolutely love it. when it comes to hamsters, it would only be big enough for a smaller male syrian, or any dwarf hamster, and would be much too small for a female syrian. you will know if the wheel is too small for your pet if the rodent cannot run on the wheel while keeping its entire back flat/straight. the only issue with this wheel is that its not exactly silent. when i first got this for my hamster, it was extremely loud and squeaky while he was running on it. we also had the same problem when we bought this for our gerbils. the sound isnt "permanent" though, after the wheel has been used once or twice, then there will be a low rumbling sound that is barely noticeable unless your really listening for it.

This wheel sucks so bad. I had it for a week and it has already broke. Save your money for a better wheel like a niteangel wheel. Not worth my money.

Nice wheel for rats

My Rats seem to love it. I haven’t attached it to the actual cage so it does move a little when they run on it but seems pretty sturdy and it’s not loud. I’m happy with it.
