Default Obesity

I’ve had my little guy for 3 months, he’s gotta bigger but I’m noticing he’s also getting round. He doesn’t use his wheel. The most exercise he gets is running around his playpen a couple time with a toilet paper roll. I’m wondering if there’s something I could do do help him? Is it the temperature (it’s consistent around 21-23 degrees), diet (chicken cat food)

What kind of wheel do you have? What is the nutritional analysis of the food and the ingredients?

23 is the low end of the recommended temperature so you might want to bump the temperature up a couple of degrees and see if that helps with activity levels.

Here is a picture of the wheel. And the food is mostly protein with natural chicken. I’ve upped the temperature so hopefully that helps.

What is the brand and variety of the food, just saying protein and chicken doesn't tell us anything.
