Choosing Small Pet Toys

Choosing small pet toys is very important to the health and happiness of your pets. Pick the wrong one and it could be bad for the whole family.

When looking into small pet toys, consider the type of pet first. You’ll need to look at toys that will suit the needs of both your pet and you. Obviously, you wouldn’t want to give an artificial plant limb to a Guinea Pig. It just wouldn’t make anyone happy.

If your small animal is a rodent, look into durable toys that will withstand a large amount of chewing. Some toys are made to be chewed and others are not, so take that into account when selecting. Chewing is a natural instinct for rodents, and something they need to do regularly for their overall health. If they do not chew, their teeth will not be worn down and they will over grow causing serious problems with them for eating and normal behavior. Consider soft wood blocks as one option. Your rodents will also need a lot of exercise. Two great solutions to that are an exercise wheel and a rodent ball. Exercise wheels come in many styles and sizes for your pet. Find the one that suits their size and habitat best. Remember that it may need to be replaced from time to time thanks to wear and tear and chewing. Rodent balls are also available in different kinds. Just make sure that the one you select is big enough for your pet and big enough for you to find when he sets out on a big adventure. Check the ball for cracks and for cracks to the lid mechanism for your pet’s protection. Cracks can be the source for an escape you didn’t expect. Replace them when necessary.
