This is a very important post/announcement. Now, many owners already know this but there is still an increasing number who don't: Harnesses for any small rodent (rabbits not included) are extremely dangerous and should be banned. However, they are not and many pet shops (in America more than here) still sell them, even though it is rather obvious that a tight material around a small animal's delicate ribs and vital organs is almost certainly going to end in disaster. Please, be aware of them. Don't be tempted to buying one by the packaging or reviews... use your common sense and what has been told in this article. It may sound fun: "Taking you hamster for a walk!", but believe me, one slight tug on the lead and that's the end of your pet. The harness can also restrict breathing, stressing out your pet and starving it of oxygen - let alone the panic caused by putting the damn thing on! I beg of you, for your pet's sake, DO NOT USE SMALL ANIMAL HARNESSES! Please share this post to spread awareness of the dangers caused by harnesses. Thank you.
