  • What does a hamster ball have to do with grooming?

    No BITING! Need is the mother of invention and in this case, me not getting bit by a 2 pound 14 year old Chihuahua named Elaina was my "need".

    I wanted an Air Muzzle, but somehow I just can't bring myself to spend the $70 for one, and then it's got a cut out right where I would want protection. Maybe one reason I just haven't got one yet. I've thought one would be good with as many cats as I do, too. But again the cut out is in the wrong place if the ball slips back over the shoulders...

    But walking around PetCo the other day ,where I get my No Grain food for the girls (cats) I walked over and on an end cap, here sat the hamster balls..well, hey1 they already have a hole (in and out for the hamster). I added 3 zip ties to secure a line through, and today was my first chance to use it! WOW! Super cool, even "mom" thought so!

    Now, they also make a ball large enough for Ferrits, didn't see a hole for in and out, probably opens in halves, but same idea for small dogs, cut a hole for the neck, but the ball would be a bull round...oh yes, air flow too.

    OK, just call me cheep. LOL

            So cool

            That is so neat. I've been wanting to try the double E-collar thing but thought it might be too bulky ( I have a dog who is a frantic head swinger when he tries to bite). This might be option #2

                EEK I just went on the site to look up the air muzzle and it is $90.00 if your not a member.

                Yikes it's plastic for goodness sakes.

                        How did you make it stay on? I see a string, but, can't quite do the math.

                          How do you keep it on their heads? I have a dog that bites severly and he gets it off and I can't get it back on.

                            Have you tried it a 2nd time on any pets? My main concern would be that the 2nd time they would see it coming and not allow it to be put on.

                              This is amazing!! I will be finding my way to a pet store promptly so I can pick up one of these. The zip ties are a great idea too!!
