Oh my goodness! Thank you for the warnings! I can't believe people use those things! I also read that leashes and harnesses will rub on the guinea pigs skin and burn it!

Harnesses and leashes are a big no no mainly cos they can damage a piggies delicate spine.

A photo is being shared on FB of a guinea pig with it's head stuck in a veggie ball

View attachment 41042

I would like to remind people of 2 old threads too

Hay/veggie Balls - Warning.

Hay Rack Warning



We have also had reported incidents of guinea pigs getting their heads stuck in Guinea Pig Toys such as loofah rings and toilet roll tubes. . This is easily solved by splitting the ring before using.
If you want to buy a toy for your guinea pigs that’s similar but way safer just buy this instead https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01BHCFRUM/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1549133552&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=wheeky+treat+ball&psc=1
