Pet nails can grow to be long and sharp, which not only can be uncomfortable or even painful to you as an owner, it can also cause your pet to frequently get stuck on fabrics, like pouches or clothing. Nail trimming using clippers can be difficult and may even cause injury to your pet if done incorrectly. Sandy Trimmer Tracks provide a soft, abrasive running surface for your pet while using their exercise wheel. Simply install the sandy track in place of the regular track, it takes only a minute, and your pet’s nails will be naturally filed down as they run. This track is completely safe and will not cause harm or discomfort to your pet if used as instructed. Conveniently hand-washable and reusable.

Instructions: Simply install the sandy track in tyour Silent Runner Pet Exercise Wheel in place of the regular track and your pet’s nails will be naturally filed down as they run. Remove the sandy track and replace with the regular track after 2-3 days (or when nails are filed) and repeat as needed.

Notice: It may be necessary to initially trim pet's nails with clippers then maintain the nail with use of the sandy track.

Maintenance: To clean, rinse with warm water and scrub with a rough brush. Do not submerge in water. Dispose and replace when worn or when sandy material begins to peel off the track (a few times per year).

Materials: vinyl with 60-grit calcium carbonate

My babies hate this insert. Was so hoping it would work. Guess I am taking them back to vet every three weeks for nail trims (&100 bucks each visit!)

Works great for my sugar gliders


Works well gets used often.


This is my first time buying a replacement running mat but my hedgehog LOVES his wheel! It makes it so much easier for my husband and I to keep his claws trimmed since he hates that part of bath time! I will always buy these mats now! - Maggie C.


Not for Hamsters!
Gave this to my hamster for a night and it gave her sores on her feet. Did some research and hamsters run more flat footed as opposed to on their toes (like humans) so this injures their foot pads far more than it trims their nails. Look for a rough rock or hamster appropriate sand as alternatives. I don't know about this product for other animal types. - Joseph F.

[Response from Seller: Thank you for your review Joseph, we're sorry to hear that the sandy track cause sores on your hamsters feet! We will be sure to update the product listing to include your notes and recommendations.]
