Entertain your pets with guinea pig, hamster, rabbit, ferret toys and more from Petco. Small animals all need engaging and fun accessories in their habitat to encourage them to exercise and entertain themselves. Guinea pigs, hamsters and rabbits amongst other small animals also need wooden and chew-safe toys to satisfy their natural and beneficial need to gnaw. Rabbits also require chew toys, but they often prefer willow chews over a Douglas-fir bark ledge.
By providing your guinea pig, rabbit or ferret with a safe chew toy, you’ll not only keep them healthy, you can also help reduce their interest in off-limits or dangerous items within their reach. Whether you have a guinea pig or a hamster, make sure to keep toys from overwhelming or crowding their habitat. To overcome this issue, some guinea pig pet parents set up special play areas with toys that may not usually fit within their cavy’s cage. Since guinea pigs, hamsters and ferrets each have their own tube toy preference, there are also options available in different lengths, widths and textures.
Be prepared to test out different options, since even two of the same kind of ferrets may prefer two completely different toy styles. Some ferrets love to burrow within ball pit while others enjoy chasing rolling buzz toys. You can also provide your ferret with the best of both worlds by throwing in buzz toys inside of your ball pit. For hamsters and rats with plenty of energy to burn there are many wheel and ball toys available at Petco. With your hamster’s safety in mind, many of these exercise toys use special guards to help keep their nails, toes and limbs safe as they keep their heart rates up. And should you find your expert climbers in search of new heights, there are also many hamster jungle gym, ladder and hanging cage toys available to keep boredom at bay.
