Wheels
 
Hi,

We currently have a Carolina storm wheel which we put in last week as the vet thought the one we had was uncomfortable for Holly.

She is using the wheel but she hates it when it rocks when she is trying to get on/off/sitting on it. She looks petrified!

My husband has managed to amend it a little so the bearing isn’t so free moving.

She is lazy as it is and I don’t want to to become so frightened of the wheel she stops the small amount of exercise she is doing.

Are there any alternative wheels I can look in to?

Thanks

Tic tac wheels, they don't tend to rock from what I've heard.
I'm not sure if you can do something to the bearing to make it not rock.
She may get used to it in the end though. But I understand your worry.

I’m hoping she will settle in to it but I will investigate tic tac wheels just in case. Hubby has managed to adjust the bearing but it keeps loosening again every day or two so I’m not sure it’s a long term fix.

I have a TicTac wheel, and there's no rocking/bouncing that i've seen some report with the carolina storm express wheel. I don't know where you are though, but to ship outside Europe is going to cost you a pretty penny.

I’m looking into the tic tac wheel so I have a plan B although my husband seems to have solved the problem with Carolina storm wheel for now. Getting one should t be to hard if needed as I am in the UK.

The tic tac wheels have a metal option, are these suitable or just the plastic ones?
