Hi,

I have had my hedgehog since early December (a couple months) so we're still in the early stages. He's just over six months. I adopted him from someone who didn't want him anymore.

I learned very quickly about how hogs tend to go to the washroom while running on their wheel. I tried using that plastic wrap stuff but then read that maybe it wasn't the best for hogs. He has gone through about five wheels because sometimes I just can't clean them and he needs a new one.

Are there other options, even if it's an expensive option? He's so tidy about going to the washroom when he is not on his wheel. But it just gets so gross and disgusting and then I need to get him a new one. Any recommendations, no matter what the price, I would love to hear them!

The two types of wheels I use are:
silent spinner like this: https://halpinehedgehogs.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/ip861414_2.jpg
regular wheel (I'm not sure what they are called) like this: http://www.catexpert.co.uk/wp-content/themes/shopperpress/thumbs/solid-wheel.jpg
(obviously larger as the one is a hamster wheel in the pic but same type)

And I clean his wheel every morning (after he has been running all night), when he makes a mess. It just sticks on there, I'm not sure why. Haha I wish it was super easy to clean off every morning.

How do you tilt a bucket wheel? I have not tried that but I think that might work get more mess off. Sorry, I'm still new to this! I've never tried tilting it before.

Thanks :)

I didn't know that about the silent spinner! Great info, thanks! My hog only had that one for about a week.
Ahh, I'm in Canada. I definitely don't mind spending extra money if it's easier to clean or better for my hog or something like that. I'll have to figure out where I can get a bucket wheel up here :)
