Selected User Reviews For Ware Manufacturing Willow Branch Ball for Small Animals - 4-inch
During the course of two days that followed the receipt of the willow ball, Bruce, the 13 year old son's guinea pig, became very ill. After taking him to a veterinarian, she didn't know what was wrong, but put him on a yogurt/spinach diet because he hadn't pooped in almost 24 hours. The next day, he threw up in the shape of a His bowel movement appeared to be of the same shape as the branches, as seen in the pictures of the hole he chewed in the willow ball. Finally, he had a few more VERY hard bowel movements in the same strange shape and he seemed to be improving. We were informed three days after our appointment with the vet that Bruce had passed away. He was previously a healthy 5 month old guinea pig prior to this, so I have no doubt that it was caused by the willow ball. Suddenly, he feels a great deal of pain. He is as motivated as I am to nurse Bruce back to health after seeing how hard he tries. It was a fun chew toy for Bruce, so he bought it thinking it would be good for him. There is no way we could have gotten away with this if we could turn back the clock.
The ball has been in our collection for a long time and I woke up this morning to find part of it wrapped tightly around the body of one of our guinea pigs. This is something I mentioned on a guinea pig page and a lot of people complained about it. Do the pigs enjoy In short, yes. Is there any danger in them? Without a doubt. The more likely scenario would have been for her to die if this would have been wrapped around her neck. In an effort to get out of it, she bounced around more as it became increasingly tight.
The next time I buy chews like these, I will never buy them It was tragic to learn of the death of a rabbit friend of mine as she was infected with a splinter. Rabbits like to chew on such things in the wild, but also, this isn't the only sort of thing they consume. An accident that can happen would bother me, but I don't want to be blamed for it.
Today, I opened up the package as soon as I received it. It was shipped in a box that had evidence of a few small twigs shedding from the ball, but I suppose that is to be expected since there is no glue. In the description, it is stated that the ball is approximately 4x4 in size. My dog immediately took to chewing on the branch ball when I placed it in her cage, but she hadn't yet rolled Also inside the hollow ball is something that looks like a wooden chew, something like a small wooden ball. Yet, there's also a smell of nasty chemical that was apparent in the ware twiggloo we ordered for caramel. Perhaps the branch ball will cause her to warm up to it. Please note that. I trust Kelly.
The number of girls in my family is six and I have two I have given these to the girls several times and they have been thrilled with Two new ones are placed in their cage during every cleaning I do. I clean their cage twice a week and replace two of them after each cleaning. As I recall, they make short work of them and sweep the two off the grounds within two are having so much fun with these between the chewing, which is necessary for their teeth to stay shorter while they are constantly growing, and rolling them around the cage, which is so much fun! There are plenty of toys for them to play with, such as grass tunnels, balls, and a wooden chew barrel, plus a constant supply of pellets and Timothy hay. This simple branch ball must be worth something to them as they seem to enjoy it very much. I am not sure what it is. In fact, I usually have to change this every week or two since I only have two boys as they prefer the grass and wooden toys the most. It can be hard to find toys that appeal to piggies, and they are generally recommend giving it a shot because the price is right and the 8 pigs approve of it. It is hard to express enough how much I admire I would appreciate it if you clicked the helpful button if my review helped you. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any other questions  .
When they first saw me, they were excited. They were excited to see it once they saw it, so it's a 5 star for fun. I expect it to last at least a couple days, but my five-pound Holland Lops decimated it in less than an hour. I know it's a chew toy, but I expected it to last at least a couple days. The quality of the product was pretty poor, and I wouldn't buy it.
Because I thought they would be more healthy and natural for my baby, I had high expectations for them. With the exception of one, they were all fine. It didn't feel right though, the tunnel being made of wooden planks. A damp feeling came over the outside, as if it were mushy. There also seemed to be an addition of the outside. Or, as if when somebody looked at the wood, it weren't actually Considering this was packed wet, it is most likely brewing some sort of brew inside. So, I contacted the seller to ask about the soft and mushy nature of the wooden tunnel. In response, they asked for photos, which I sent. It would also not help if I provided pictures since I said it could be detected with touch. In response, they said I'm fine. You don't have to I did not feel their reply answered my question and did not satisfy me in any way. I returned the toys for the safety of my baby and did not risk her getting sick.
I feel that looking at the pictures I took, the wooden tunnel does not look good in my opinion. It shows some unpolished areas and the outside is damp, even in my picture. Just in case somebody needs them to make their mind up, I uploaded them. Despite all the flaws, their biggest criticism was the soft, mushy outside.
I would not recommend these. Health risks are not worth putting our babies' lives at risk.
), and had never ordered through Amazon until now. There were six of them offered as a special offer, so I purchased six of them. After picking up a whiff of one of them, I started giving them out to my bunnies. My first reaction was to ignore the odor, which was so terrible I was surprised I did not notice it right away. The bunnies ate some of it when they were removed, so I'm concerned that some of it was eaten by them. It was unusual for them not to manipulate the willow ball while the rest usually tear it apart and eat it. As far as I know, I haven't experienced this problem before. Give them a sniff test before you buy them so you know if you should stick with the product. There is no contact information on Amazon's website. They allow returns only if the material is in the original packaging, so I can't get in touch with them. My sister gave me a box of willow balls that were loose in the box, and I cut of the tags from three of them.
