Discuss anything aquarium related here, including inhabitants, decor and issues.
Google is your friend. Feel free to ask questions but know that there are a lot of resources out there that could answer your question a lot faster and accurately than /an/.

Well the thing was I'm not positive she was a "stray" perse. She was very clean and had no worms or wasn't super skinny or none of that average stray cat stuff. She just wouldn't leave our house alone and never went home so we took her in.
Bump I want to study medicine but I love biology/zoology in general just as much if not more Say I finish my bio major and can't get into a med program What are some jobs that involve animals and nature (not medical related) and what do you do?
you don't need to bump threads on /an/. and just do molecular/genetics work if you want to be useful but focus on some animal model rather than humans. You can do work in the field collecting specimens and then do whatever analyses in the lab.
>>2266785 Training. You build trust and a bond with the animal, then thru repetition and patience the horse will learn basic commands. Each horse and trainers is different, but typically right and left are controlled by the reigns. If direction is taught by both pulling the right or left reign and a vocal command then with experience a rider could possibly direct the horse with just the vocal whenever they need to. A horse can get accustomed to gunfire as well, there is just not much of a need for it in today's world.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If I buy a 75 gal tank and add everything from my old 10 gal tank (4 live plants, 2 rocks, 5lb(?) Of substrate, a bit grasshair plants) that I have had for 8 months, + new stuff to fill it up, would it be cycled already, or just how much would it boost up the cycling process?
>>2266542 But then again if it's 75gal and it's so big, would it be okay to add 10 small neon tetras while it cycles, I'm saying this assuming their biowaste is too small to spike up ammonia, or that my 10gal stuff is enough to "cancel it out", I could be wrong though, correct me if so
Join a volunteer program. Half the employees at any animal-related place are volunteers. The other half have loads of experience (from volunteering) and probably 3 or 4 degrees. Competition is fierce for those kinds of jobs and employees can be very picky and pay you shit and get away with it.
Also, if you love animals, never work with them. Ever. It will crush your soul when you learn, for example, what goes on behind those swinging doors at the Petco grooming salon - where they take the animals that aren't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2266357 i like animals but i wouldn't say i love love them. A few years ago my dog died by being hit by a car and i got over it in like a day which sort of surprised me. But what do you mean by >where they take the animals that aren't super-excited about nail trims.
I'm dehydrating some jalapenos with my stove's overhead fan going. I'm wondering if the fumes would bother my roommate's budgies who are about 8 feet away. They seem to be making a bit more noise since I started the process, but that could be coincidence.
Not unless they're a husky x something else and somehow wind up being chill as part of the bargain. That is rare.
Ordinarily huskies have two settings: RUN/PULL and SLEEP (while dreaming of running and pulling). This is why they are breed of choice for the Iditarod dog sled races and similar stuff. Long race is freezing temperatures and the huskies absolutely love it.
I also have many questions, feel free to answer as littoe /as many as you want... Feel free to answer as little/many questions you want.
>Choosing a pet -When adopting a pet, should I get a small, medium or large breed? -Should I choose the dog or should the dog choose me? -Should I pick from the streets or from an animal shelter? -Should I buy items/accesories for a dog before it moves to my home or should I buy everything accordingly to my dog's preference?

Shelter employee here. I just want to say don't give up looking after the first time; new dogs come through daily and if a certain shelter or rescue doesn't jive with you, there's more out there. >small, medium or large breed? This is something you need to answer for yourself, and if you're not sure, you will need o do research for yourself, whether hands on or via reading. It's ok if you don't care about size, but if you simply don't know, that's a problem that only you can answer unless you have specific... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2265926 >-What vaccines/treatments/care It depends on the shelter and the dog. Some dogs need regular grooming, like poodle and poodle mixes. All dogs will need rabies shots and should have at least one finished round of distemper (2 shots for adults, 3 for puppies). Yearly vet visits are important for updating vaccines and for a health check up. You may want to invest in heart worm vaccination, as HW treatment costs thousands and takes half a year, or will slowly kill your dog. >-Is... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2265862 well i had to do something and i tried and now its stuck not in contact with the other part. i had to do something though i'm only home on the weekends and my worthless family of course hasn't done anything and her ear was just fucking split. its so fucked up she was such a beautiful kitten and they don't want to close the doors of the house.
Any of you anons have expeirance with rats? Recently, my gf got 2 females. One is cool, friendly and stuff, the other one is super aggressive, shes jumping on my gf's hand and bites her while she has some kind of treat for them. She also bites the other rat. Aggressive one is quite big, so we suspect that she might be pregnant. Shes usually sitting/lying around doing nothing, the only thing shes showing is aggression towards us and her mate. We have them for about ~1,5 week, and instead of getting better it's only getting worse in terms of her behaviour.
Sup /an/ I have a question. I need to remove the microchip from my dog, because the person whom I had babysit her got her chipped in her name against my knowledge and wishes. This person is now claiming that the dog is here and keeps harassing me, along with trying to steal my dog. I just want the old chip out and to get it replaced with a new one. Pic unrelated
I don't know if this cat is a stray or not. It seems well fed, healthy, hair isn't matted, but smells like dirt and always seems to be outside my house.
Doesn't have any visible ID
My sister already has 2 cats, and one of them is extremely territorial, it barely even gets along with its sibling, let alone stranger cats. I had a cat a year ago that passed away from kidney failure, and I don't want to adopt another pet any time soon. And this new cat gives me serious allergies, I break out into hives, stuffy nose, irritated throat, whenever... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You can call vets and pet stores to see if they have a microchip scanner to scan the cat. From there someone can attempt to contact the owners, if a chip was found.
Rehome it yourself. If it's a family or friend, that is great, but keep in mind with a stranger don't expect to ever see the cat or hear about it again. The cat is an adult and you have no idea if it's UTD on shots or even fixed, so it will be hard to adopt out. Even worse, you can't charge any cash for it so screening is going to be really difficult.
If you feel comfortable giving a list of nearby towns you'd be willing to travel to, I can look at the shelters' policies and maybe their euthanasia rates or live release rates will be public. If not, there are cat rescues out there, however you will most definitely have a waiting period before you can bring your cat in. But it doesn't sound like the cat is in immediate danger right now or that you have to get rid of it, so sitting tight may not be the worst option if it means a no kill shelter or rescue

I don't take him to the vet regularly because poorfag but I do get him vaccinated every year.
He used to be an outdoor cat but after he went missing for over a week a third time (He went two weeks outside without eating much and had lost a bunch of weight) I decided to make him an indoor cat. He still constantly ask to go outside and I do let him out for a bit but he wears a leash that is connected to a sturdy chair so that he doesn't get loose and he walks around the back porch
I want to make sure he remains happy... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
