    The small is too small and medium is really big

    By on

    The small is too small and medium is really big. They need a size in between the small and medium. My chihuahua weighs about 6 lbs, and I could fit at least 4 in the medium pod. I have no choice, but to keep the medium! Unless you have a 2-3 lb teacup furry friend, you will need the medium size. Otherwise, the product is well made, and biodegradable. Love the customer service at

    Perfect but...

    By on

    It itself was perfect! But I was unsure what size too get. Just letting anyone know in the unfortunate circumstance, this size is perfect for an adult rat. And our flowers sprouted from it within two weeks. This made losing him ALOT easier to cope with all around an very well thought out product.

    Appears perfect

    I hope I don't have to use this for a LONG time, but it appears to be exactly what I will need when the time comes. Felt insensitive when I bought it, but the WONDERFUL Chewy folks assured me I wasn't and it was just good planning.

    Great product, but....

    By on

    Love the durability of product. Only thing fasteners are not well made. Was supposed to come with four, received three and the fourth was broken. While trying to fasten, one broke so only had 2 to fasten. Ended up using cable ties to make sure pod was shut tight.
