chew proofing cord product..

i went to the petstore today and happened to stumble upon a new product which i personally have not ever seen....it was a Marshall ferret product which was a clear, relatively soft, plastic covering that was infused with citrus to prevent animals such as ferets and rabbits from chewing cords....i was tempted but i thought this was uderly ridiculous

what do you think? worth a try?

I have no idea...first I heard of it.
Hope someone with experience comes along soon to give some feedback =]

Buster (my rabbit) isn't that much of a chewer,except for on his toys.
(which he can chew thats what I bought them for hehe)
But as always,I'm open to new products if the feedback is good.

Rabbits & ferrets are quite curious,so I'd never rule out the possibilty that he might try to chew a wire someday (they are out of his reach,but still,better safe than sorry.)

Thanks for bringing something new to my attention .

For what animal, Skrat?

Chew-proof wire sleeves are pretty common in the ferret world.

For ferrets who love chewing rubbery things, it's a great deterrent. For non-carnivorous animals such as rabbits and rodents, which have teeth that are configured for gnawing and wittling away slowly at things, this would probably not be a very effective product.

Is that the one that's bad tasting or smelling? I bought that a while back for my rabbits. Then one day Sakura chewed through the coverings and bit three wires. Thankfully she was ok . But I did have to replace my lamp and $80+ worth of aquarium equipment.

Zeus is a wire chewer, so I bought the clear wire protector things from a place online. I don't think the citris flavor really detures Zeus, but I also bought some of that Ickey or Yuckey or whatever the heck it's called spray, that stuff is nasty! I can't stand that stuff let alone Zeus. Just a couple of sprays of that on the wire and no one wants to go near them, lol.

But anyways, I got the clear cover mostly to give the wires a little more protection. That way, he has more to chew through before he gets to the actual wire, lol. But he's been leaving them alone now so that's good.

i wondered if that wire cover stuff would work for my rodents..then i thought that cant be able to deter them...but i saw rabbits...so i thought...hmm maybe

thats neat how it can deter ferrets, i figured they wouldnt be stopped by some citrus and plastic

either way i didnt get it..i use Fooey spray and if you spray TONS of that stuff on wires they seem to leave it alone

thanks for the help guys

Fooey, that's what it's called!

That stuff works good, but it's nasty! I have to be careful when I'm spraying it and make sure all the doors and windows are open because if I accidently breath it in then that's all I can taste for the rest of the day. And I have to be careful and not touch any wires that it's on, because then it gets on my hands and once I didn't relize and wash it off, then ate a cracker, and it tasted like that...eww
