Are Hamster Balls SAFE?

Today I talk about whether or not hamster balls are safe to use! Remember just because something is sold in a petstore or made for a hamster does not mean it is safe for them.
Here is the leaflet from the Veterinary Association for Animal Welfare on why hamster balls are dangerous, yes it is in german so you do need to translate it. Its is leaflet No.62- Pet owner ship, animals harming accessories.

    What if i put my hamster in the ball (she went in herself) for only 5 mins because she looks so bored in her cage i feel bad

  2. Lively Livie on March 4, 2021 at 5:48 am

    I have one question? Could u put your hamster in a ball for 5 mins at a time once a week

  3. Ida Gimborn on March 4, 2021 at 5:49 am

    I have hamsterballs☹️ but I like you☺️

  4. Yorkie The dork on March 4, 2021 at 5:49 am

    NO. I let my hamster walk around in his ball like I usually do, when this time, I noticed that the ENTIRE inside of the ball was coated read, so obviously I freaked out and looked to see if it was blood, which it WAS! Turns out he got his toe-nail stuck in one of the breathing hole things and it ripped it off. I felt so bad and i gave him a bunch of treats after that. So, don’t do what i did folks

  5. DRC2021 on March 4, 2021 at 5:51 am

    I will put mine in a ball tomorrow to see if he likes it

  6. Mishkawolf forever on March 4, 2021 at 5:51 am

    So true about 2 weeks the lid came off and luckily she just stood there cause she was only 1 month old

  11. Nidhi Sookun on March 4, 2021 at 5:57 am

    What if the door is open and it’s on a stand . Can they still use it?

  12. Mirabella Hawtin on March 4, 2021 at 5:57 am

    To be honest I buy a clear ball for my hamster I put it in her playpen, she goes in it I wait a couple seconds she stays I put her in the ball she runs slowly she doesn’t have problems with breathing she’s a very large Syrian hamster so her paws are very big! So they can’t get stuck so really my hamster likes her ball+ I get her a new one every month so it doesn’t go misty or broken! I have an English bulldog puppy, and she’s to lazy to get up to kick the ball or anything else. I get her out every 10 minutes to give some air make sure she’s ok and if she climbed out it means she wants to leeve the ball so I let her free rain for a while. I also put a tiny piece of tape over the lid making sure not to cover the air holes she’s absolutely fine loves it has no problems doesn’t bump into anything her ball is 12 inches wide it’s fine for her but obviously not all hamsters like it,

  31. Bartholomäus on March 4, 2021 at 6:23 am

    I just learned that hamster seems like a quite popular topic, since that person has almost half a million subs. Interesting, and I find that good!
