Degu Walking wheels

A running wheel is certainly not a must for a Degu, 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 has the right size and is safe, so you are at the right place at DRD Degoe 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 LOOP WHEEL
What is the best material? Wood, Metal, Plastic? For the hamster it often does not matter what material the wheel is made of, he is happy that he can run! A nice feature of a wooden wheel is that the nails wear better than in a metal or plastic wheel.
WOOD CLEANING WIPES
It was always a challenge to clean a wooden walker, but fortunately that is a thing of the past. There are now two types of cleaning products with which wooden walkways can easily be cleaned. The first is CSI Urine Spray and the second is the Eco Pets Urine Buster. Both cleaning products work on an enzyme basis and address the bacteria that are found 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.
DO NOT WASH RUNNING WADERS IN WATER
For all running wheels, it is not good to rinse them completely under the tap. It is very important that the rotating mechanism (ball bearing) does not get wet. The more often the turning mechanism is flushed, the stiffer it becomes and can therefore start to beep and start to run more smoothly.
We do not recommend washing wooden walkways with water. Wiping with a damp cloth is not a problem, but it is not good for the walkways to make them completely wet. By wetting the wheel, the glue can let go.
A running wheel can make more equal in the course of time. We recommend a drop of olive oil for a squeaky walking wheel. This can be applied to the turning mechanism.
