Order Running wheels for your Chinchilla easily and quickly at DRD Rodent Shop ® The Chinchilla Webshop for your chinchilla!
A running wheel is certainly not a must for a Chinchilla, but a running wheel gives the animals extra movement and challenge. In addition, running in a running wheel is a fun activity for most animals. It is important that a running wheel is the right size and is safe, so you have come to the right place at DRD Chinchilla Webshop. With us you have a wide choice of different types, sizes, colors and brands of running wheels and running discs for a competitive price!
MATERIAL OF THE WHEEL
What is the best material? Wood, Metal, Plastic? For the hamster it often does not matter what material the running wheel is made of, he is happy that he can run! A nice side effect of a wooden running wheel is that the nails wear better than in a metal or plastic running wheel.
CLEAN WOODEN WALKWHEELS
It was always a challenge to clean a wooden running wheel, but fortunately that is a thing of the past. There are now two types of cleaning products that can be used to easily clean wooden walking wheels. The first is CSI Urine Spray and the second is the Eco Pets Urine Buster. Both detergents work on an enzyme basis and tackle the bacteria that are in urine. These bacteria provide the well-known urine air. Both sprays remove the bacteria and dirt so that the running wheel is fresh and clean again.
NO WASHING WHEELS IN WATER
It is not good for all running wheels to rinse them completely under the tap. It is very important that the rotary mechanism (ball bearing) does not get wet. The more often the rotary mechanism is rinsed, the stiffer it becomes and can therefore beep and run stiffer earlier.
We do not recommend washing wooden walkways with water. Wiping with a damp cloth is no problem, but it is not good for the running wheels to wet them completely. The glue can loosen by wetting the running wheel.
WALKING WHEEL BEEPS
A running wheel may become more even over time. For a squeaky wheel, we recommend a drop of olive oil. This can be mounted on the turning mechanism.
