Exotic Nutrition's new 9" Silent Runner wheel is recommended for sugar gliders, male rats, and other similar small animals (not suggested for chewing animals). The axle-free construction eliminates the dangerous center axle that many pet running wheels have, reducing the risk of tail entanglement and spine injuries. The Silent Runner dual ball bearing design ensures the wheel runs smooth and quite, unlike many of the annoying sqeaky wheels on the market. You'll love the pet-safe all metal stand, built to last! Wheel size: 9" wheel diameter, 2.5" wide track, 2.75" diameter openings, appoximately 10" tall on stand.  

Pet nails can grow to be long and sharp. Not only can this be uncomfortable or even painful to you as an owner, it can also cause your pet to frequently get stuck on fabrics, like pouches or clothing. Nail trimming using clippers can be difficult and may even cause injury to your pet if done incorrectly. Sandy Trimmer Tracks provide a soft, abrasive running surface for your pet while using their exercise wheel. Simply install the sandy track in place of the regular track, it takes less than a minute, and your pet’s nails will be naturally filed down as they run (see assembly instructions and video below). Replace the sandy track with the regular track after 2-3 days (or when nails are filed) and repeat weekly. This track is completely safe and will not cause harm or discomfort to your pet if used as instructed. Conveniently hand-washable and reusable to last the lifetime of your pet.

Customer Testimonial: "Just wanted to send a quick note and let you know that I recently ordered from your company for the first time and was very impressed with the speediness of my shipment, as well as the amazing quality of the Silent Runner Wheel that I purchased. It felt like spinning the wheels on a nice pair of roller blades, and even better, was just as silent. My diminutive hamster had no problem spinning the larger wheel, and the difference in noise level from our previous "silent spinner" and this new wheel is night and day. The fact that we can now sleep easy while our hamster gets the exercise he needs throughout the night makes the purchase price more than worth it. Thanks again for the excellent service and the wonderful product." - Fernando S.

MAINTENANCE: Wipe down the wheel with a soft, wet cloth or disinfectant wipe daily. Wash thoroughly at least once per week. Disassemble the wheel and clean with warm soapy water (top rack dishwasher safe), rinse, and allow to air dry completely. Do not submerge the back plate or sandy track in water. Make sure to dry the ball bearings thoroughly as inadequate drying may lead to the bearings seizing. Place a few drops of mineral or baby oil on each bearing, reassemble the wheel with the texture side of the track facing inwards, and reinstall on stand or cage attachment.

Notice: It may be necessary to initially trim pet's nails with clippers then maintain the nail through frequent use of the sandy track

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the standard running track on your Silent Runner wheel. Begin by inserting the corner of the Sandy Track into the molded edges of the back panel (black) for the Silent Runner wheel. Once the corner edge is pushed in, begin working the sandy track all the way around the wheel into the groove. Once completely in the groove, push the clear connector into place connecting both ends of the track. Set the front wheel panel on the sandy track, and starting with the side away from the connector, work one small section of the sandy track into the front wheel panel groove (panel with the openings). Once a small section of the track is in the groove, apply pressure (squeeze down) all the way around the wheel until the track is in place. You may need to push the last section near the clear connector in with your fingers. Set the wheel down on a hard, flat surface and apply pressure all the way around the wheel to secure the track in place.

My little guys love it and talk about quiet! They are in our bedroom and had to buy a noise machine so not to keep being awoken but now we can sleep without interruption. Can you make one for our dogs now?
