Exotic Nutrition's new 12" 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: 12" wheel diameter, 3.5" wide track, 4" diameter openings, approximately 13" 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.

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.

This is our sugar gliders favorite wheel, he loves it and runs on it so fast. It's super quiet.

I have a couple of these because I have one in each of my glider's cages. I have never had to trim any of my glider's nails and I have been raising gliders for several years now. Plus they are quiet. These are by far the best wheels for sugar gliders.

The track was difficult to change out and after more research, I found that it is better to have a track with holes so the poo and pee falls through. [like the AutoClean track]

My sugar gliders can't get enough of it, love having the sandy track as well it really does help keep their nails short, but make sure you only leave it on for no more than 48 hours then put regular track back in.. Easy to install and take apart to clean.. My next purchase will be the cage attachment instead of using the stand it came with.. Great purchase, fast delivery and great price!

Works great and does not make any noise. My gliders love it!
