    Guinea Pig Flooring

    https://www.wish.com/product/non-sli...5a411742fc6b80

    So these are interesting. They arent wire flooring but they arent solid. Being on Instagram and following a bunch of small animal pages, I've seen quite a few people use these. I'm wondering if anybody knows anything about this type of flooring.

    I don't know anything about these liners but they look like they could be a problem for a guinea pig's foot. There seems to be enough of a space that a toe could get caught and cause injury to the nail or even the foot. I myself wouldn't use them but then I am overly cautious about things. I'm sure others have used them without any issues.

    Thats what I was thinking. Apparently they are vet aproved in Brazil but thats the only thing I've heard. I feel like the toes getting stuck would be an issue :/ not to mention the fact its not solid and could cause bumblefoot.
