Clumsy Pups Hurting Themselves
I've looked around the boards and haven't seen any topics regarding this yet, but bear with me if it's been discussed already.
I got two 7 week old pups (one boy, one girl) a few days ago that I kept in a small 3 story cage, and everything was great until the male started to get his feet stuck in the wires along the walls. That happened twice, and then later that day we heard him screeching, and he was upside down with his leg stuck where the wheel connects to the wall.
Horrified, we immediately got a new cage, one of those flat, one story guinea pig cages. We thought that would work, but an hour later the girl got her leg caught in the new cage, and would have probably broken it if we weren't home.
SO my question is... has anyone else experienced this? Are they always this prone to hurt themselves? Are there any wire cages that are recommended and safe? Right now we've lined the inside of the cage with cardboard (so they can't climb), and are looking to move them into a glass tank, but it doesn't seem like a great permanent solution.
