My Degu Love it - only missing one thing

My Degu Love these running wheels! It is the perfect size for them and yet fits inside their cage. Only thing- there is one thing missing - well, two really- two nuts to hold the stand in place as the wheel turns. I just McGuivered a solution by gluing a nut at the inner joint to keep the stand from becoming dis-attached as they use it. Simple solution, but not sure why it does not come with them already? Just use a glue that is safer for animals like Elmer's or Wood glue.

Poor quality

The wheel itself is fine but the wire stand it comes with is extremely thin. I bends easily and the wheel does not stay firmly mounted within it so it is constantly falling off. It falls apart when my rat is running on it. I regret this purchase.

Terrible garbage

Absolutely the worst wheel on the market. Grate hurts my chinchillas paws, very loud, and falls apart constantly. Doesn't rotate very well either and has no way of "locking" or keeping the wheel on the frame. Spend the extra money and invest in something better and thank me later.

Piece of garbage

This wheel is garbage. It is made horribly, the wheel isnt even attached with anything. You stick the pegs through a hole and expect it to stay on? Absolute waste of money.

Arrived bent out of shape

Not sure if it started like this or if it happened during transit, but the wheel had been slightly squeezed into an oval, so it makes a terrible, loud rattle when it spins.

Ware Large Wheel

Very unstable and wobbles. The base is not made of sturdy materials. Wheel itself is fine, but base doesn't support the weight of the animal in motion without shaking & our hedgehog is too scared to play on it. I want to return it.

Squeaks too loud

This is supposed to be a quiet wheel but it still keeps you awake at night. And since learned about how it can cause bumble foot.

Perfect for us

We loved our old saucer-wheels, but when I switched to using coco-fiber bedding they started getting jammed and the mice could no longer use them. The coco-fiber works great for absorbing smells, so it stays and the old saucer wheels had to go. Switching to these wheels turned out to be a big bonus in the CLEANLINESS department. The natural advantages of this design are helped by the coco-fiber (works kind of like flour on dough), and they hardly ever get anything sticking to them. The manufacturer recommends vegetable oil if (when) the wheel squeaks. I find that petroleum jelly (AKA Vaseline white petroleum) works better and lasts a lot longer, and is still safe for my mice. Mine are QUIETER than the saucer design as I am currently using them. They could be even quieter if I used zip ties to secure the side that doesn't hook, which I will probably do at some point. This wheel can be used either sitting on the bedding or hanging from wire sides or tops of the cage. My DIY mouse bins have 1/4" mesh ceilings made out of basically the same material as this wheel, and my wheels are hanging from the ceiling hooked through that. The wheel hangs down by about 10" when mounted this way. I got medium wheels for my larger bins and small wheels for my smaller bins, but I find that the medium size works much better for mice. They often run in pairs and I have seen up to five mice on the wheel at one time. The small size is OK too, but for multiple mice I definitely recommend the MEDIUM (8") wheel. At this time, the small wheel is available from Chewy under a different listing - keep an eye on the labeling and measurements to make sure that you are getting what you want!

hedgehog love it

My hedgehog loves this wheel so much only bad part is that I broke it somehow but when she poops on it it doesn’t stick as much and the other wheels I have had easy clean up as well

Wheel of DOom

My chinchilla hates this wheel. Her body seems to big and she is having trouble spinning in this wheel. It's too constrictive.
