I searched and did not find an answer to this. Small amber colored prescription bottles with cap on securely, my thought was they could push it around with their nose.

Any concerns on this being a safe toy?

Remove label or don't worry about label?

Could decorate with colorful stickers, as well. Any concerns about stickers?

No. There is too much risk of getting a face or head caught tight in one and shutting off their air. Same goes for plastic glasses or anything they can get stuck in that is not ventilated both ends.

Oh ok thanks! I will keep a close eye on the lids to ensure they are not chewing at it (which would be a risk of small plastic pieces) but since most of what I have read indicates they aren't chewers I am hoping it wont be an issue. Thank you, Nancy!

I would be sure to wash them very good. If not, I would be afraid of any drug residue. It wouldn't take much as small as a little hedgie is and could be fatal depending on the prescription.

Just an update, the small amber Rx bottle is moved around A LOT in Whyte's cage, he really seems to like it. One morning I found it stuck inside the toilet-paper tube, now that's skill!! I have no idea how he did it! No chewing thus far on the lid at all. I decorated it with small stickers and I check to ensure they aren't starting to peel. I've decided not to do stickers on any future bottles, though, because I think I'd rather be able to wash them up when I wash everything else in their cage.
