Hamster house featuring 2 rooms and a granite roof for dwarf hamsters. Functionality in the smallest space: A sturdy,removable granite roof gently shortens nails as your pet runs over it and even provides some cooling in summer.
Small, but wow!: The opening to the sleeping chamber in the back is as far from the front entrance of the house as possible to ensure your pet will be able to retreat to a dark and quiet place and feel right at home. And there's enough room for a cozy nest and an ample food stash.
Our Rodipet® +GRANiT rodent houses are designed to fit into any cage that complies with German animal wellfare regulations (i. e. 100 x 50 cm / 40 x 20 inches minimum floor space). They can be placed in a corner to save space or as a feature in the middle of the cage.
Why is the entrance 55 mm wide? A fully grown dwarf hamster with full pouches can be up to 5 cm wide. If the entrances to the house are too narrow, the hamster has to squeeze in. This can cause the tips of grains to scratch or pierce the mucosa inside the pouches, which can lead to pouch abcesses.
If a hamster finds the entrances too large, he or she will partly close them up with soft bedding or hay to make the inside really cosy.
Nail care par excellence: Our pets' wild cousins run over sticks and stones and dig tunnels, which naturally shortens their nails. In human care, this natural process usually happens at a much smaller scale, if at all.
The rough granite surface of the Rodipet® +GRANiT House BURQiN for Pet Rodents offers pets an opportunity to shorten their nails just by walking on it, avoiding complications that can occur from overgrown nails.
Discover the Secret: You can easily lift the roof of the Rodipet® +GRANiT House BURQiN. Even sleeping inside the luxurious house your pet will barely notice. This allows for minimal disturbance checks at all times. Although liftable, the roof is constructed in such a way that your pet cannot move or lift it.
By the way: the roof is an excellent location for a drinking vessel or a small bowl containing fruit or vegetables. This provides additional motivation for climbing the roof, and your pet will shorten their nails by simply walking on it.
Quality craftsmanship: Prime materials and loving, careful workmanship make the Rodipet® +GRANiT House BURQiN a high class home for dwarf hamsters and other small rodents. To make it a truly animal appropriate product we use carefully selected birch wood. This is a particularly breathable and absolutely rodent-safe product, creating a healthy living environment.
Handy temperature control: By nature, rodents do not bear heat very well. In the wild, they hide out inside their cool subterranean burrows when it gets hot. You can use the granite roof to help recreate this effect. In summer, the granite slab can provide some pleasant cool for your pet.
Tip for hot days: When it is particularly hot, you can significantly increase the cooling effect by sprinkling or spraying a little water on the granite roof.
This is where your pet can feel really comfy. Within the breathable birch wood walls of the Rodipet® +GRANiT House BURQiN your pet rodent can feel perfectly safe and comfortable. Thanks to the removable roof, the nest remains intact even after a check, so your pet will always find a familiar resting place inside the enclosure.
