Choosing Cat Litter In South Africa
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Pet Inn | Comfy | Cats | Cat Litter | Litter Boxes | Cateco
Choosing the best cat litter for your cat in South Africa can be a difficult choice simply because there are so many options available. The most common types include clay (clumping and non-clumping), crystals, paper, wood, corn, wheat and soy.    The best way to avoid litter box issues is to find the right cat litter box and cat litter that will keep your cat happy and comfortable. Each variety has its own benefits, so you can choose one based on your preference and your cat’s preference. Non-Clumping Cat Litter Some of the first commercially available cat litters were of the non-clumping type. Why? Non-clumping cat litter is good at removing odors associated with cat urine because it has the ability to absorb relatively large volumes of urine. While there are non-scented litters available, some non-clumping litters also have additional additives, such as baking soda or charcoal, which are designed to help control unpleasant odours.

Why Small Pets Need Enrichment?
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Small Animal Toys | Guinea Pigs | Chinchillas | Bedding | Hamsters | Pet Inn | Pet Care | Rats and Mice | Degus | Gerbils | Carefresh
Many rodents such as hamsters, gerbils, mice, domesticated rats, guinea pigs, chinchillas and degus are commonly kept as pets. All of these animals can make great pets when they are cared for properly with the right diet and proper housing. Unfortunately, many people get these animals as pets and don’t realize that in addition to good food, a safe cage, and clean bedding, these pets – just like cats and dogs – need environmental stimulation to be happy and to thrive. Many wild rodents are very social animals living with numerous others of their own kind in their normal habitat. In the wild, they have “jobs” – searching for food, finding mates, building nests. Most rodents nest in communities and share parental responsibilities. They spend 30-50% of the time they are awake grooming each other. When young rodents are separated from their mothers, they often show an increase in disease, are more anxious and aggressive, and are less likely to.. [More] carefreshhamster.jpg

Benefits of Small Animal Chew Toys
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Small Animal Toys | Pet Accesories | Hamsters | Pet Inn | Pet Care | Rats and Mice | Gerbils
For years, small pets were only provided with food, water and bedding, and they spent the majority of their days in their cages. However, today's small animal pet owners are more apt to recognize the importance of offering plenty of out-of-cage time mixed with positive social interaction and a variety of challenging toys to keep their pets happily occupied throughout the day.   Whether it’s called a toy or a treat, having something to chew on is top priority for small animals. These pets have teeth that grow continuously, and gnawing is a natural way for them to keep their teeth at the proper level to provide healthy eating habits and good dentition. But chew toys aren’t just a necessity, they’re also fun. Interactive Toys An increasing number of small animal pet owners seek interactive toys. Similar to dog owners who wish to play catch with their pets, small pet owners also crave one-on-one interactions with their pets. There is no need to ke.. [More] hamsterplaying.jpg

Keeping Your Hamsters Fit & Healthy
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Hamsters | Pet Inn | Pet Care
Hamsters are naturally energetic and inquisitive animals who benefit from exercise and play. A bored hamster with no way to burn calories may become lethargic, irritable or destructive. Supplying your hamster with toys and exercise equipment is an essential part of keeping him healthy. Benefits of Exercise Running around helps alleviate boredom, preventing your hamster from developing bad behavior such as excessive or destructive chewing. A bored hamster is going to be more likely to chew on his cage and destroy various toys and items within the living enclosure. A hamster who is not getting adequate exercise may be irritable or difficult to handle. If your hamster cannot exercise for extended periods of time, he may gain a significant amount of weight, which can cause other health problems to develop. Exercise Wheel An exercise wheel is an essential piece of equipment for your hamster's quality of life. Hamsters get in their wheels and run in place. Every hams.. [More] hamsterinsideball.jpg

Finding The Right Hamster Cage
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Pet Cages | Hamsters | Rotastak | Pet Inn
There is a huge variety of hamsters cages on the market, but not all cages are created equally. Most of the cages that are sold as 'hamster cages' are actually suitable for dwarf hamsters and don't provide enough floor space for the larger species of syrian hamster, or have components that aren't safe for a larger hamster. A cage is the most important investment you'll make for your hamster, so you want to choose wisely. There are various hamster housing options, each with pros and cons. To find the right one for your hamster, consider factors such as species type, safety, maintenance, budget, and above all, size. A rule that you must always follow: Syrian hamsters cannot be housed together! They are territorial, solitary animals and will fight and inflict serious wounds to each other if not kept apart. They can, however, be kept near each other in separate housing. Dwarf hamsters MIGHT be kept together in same-sex housing. Size it up In the wild, hamsters h.. [More] types of hamster cages.jpg

Looking for a cage that'll ensure your hamster feels truly at home? We've got a fantastic range to choose from, including brightly coloured options in a range of sizes. You'll also find plenty of different shapes on offer, from classic rectangle hamster cages to fun compartmental cages with interconnecting tunnels. Pet Inn has launched a new range of hamster cages, called Vetro Plus Nature, which is a two-level cage that combines the traditional wire mesh cage technology with a glass bottom tray.   The transparent glass bottom section allows you to observe the activities of your hamster all the time. The glass tray is quite high and can contain a thick layer of bedding, in which the hamster can hide itself following its natural instincts. This also prevents dirt being kicked out from the cage, so the surrounding area around the cage, will always be clean. The top mesh wire section with 7mm spacing between the bars provides adequate ventilation for your pet. This .. [More] Vetrocageblog.jpg
