It's not what I'm looking for. It's a place where little girls with rich parents learn how to ride a horse. I have to feed them, walk them outside, them walk them back inside and clean after them. I'm looking for more of "never do that" "do this and that so the horse will like you" kind of thing. There is no way I could do this kind of thing, it would get me fired. But thanks anyway for your input.
Studying Animal Health Science major, going to graduate with four year degree in 5 months. Hate vet tech work. Love working with pets/animals (excluding livestock). What are my other possible job opportunities? I feel trapped to go into vet tech, although I admit the degree is everything about vet tech work (I regret).
>>2237064 Slowly add the clean water to their cups and wait 30 minutes to get them accustomed to it. And while waiting, fill up the tank part of the way
Dump out some of their cup water into the tank, then add more clean water to their cup and wait another 30
Then dump them into their respective spaces in that tank.
After that, I would see to getting them larger, individual tanks. No matter what the Petco/Petsmart employees told you, Bettas need at least 1 gallon each minimum for survival, but preferably 2.5 gallons each to be more comfortable.
>>2236869 Its basically a child. You are programmed to crave the responsibility of taking care of something less intelligent than you, a dog fills the void for half the work. Also a dog is always a good laugh because they are stupid, or do something "smart" despite being stupid.
I've been arguing with my gf for the past hour about which would win in a fight between a lion and a tiger. I've been saying lion because they are the kangz of the jungle and are probably used to fighting all the time. Tigers are antisocial cowards that hide and pounce on unweary people/animals. So tell me who wins/an/ so I can put this argument to rest.
>>2236584 Oh boy, this old meme Lions average about 300 to 600 pounds, Tigers average at about 900 pounds. That's all muscle. Tigers are solitary and thus must be able to single-handedly take down large prey. There have been many instances of Tigers killing Lions with only a single swipe. Tigers are more adapted to go for the killing blow and fast, too. Male Lions just wrestle with eachother. Any big cat expert will tell you the siberian tiger is the most dangerous cat in history, as Pantera Tigris is the largest feline... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2236590 >t. Tiger Also the American Lion was the biggest cat to ever live and it would shit on a siberian tiger. Plus lions have the main which means tigers couldn't get at their necks plus lions are used to fighting cats and other larger predators. Tigers only hunt deer and shit and sneak attack baby to teenage bears. Tigers are fucking cowards.
My cat is dying. She was at the vet and they said to take her home and let her pass away in a familiar environment. And the moment she was in the house, she seemed a lot happier. She just sat at a corner of the house and I patted her for a while and now, she has retreated into her hugeass cardboard box and I have no way of checking on her unless I shine a light in or tear the top off slightly. Should I just focus on something else and leave her alone? Or keep patting her? I'm afraid she will die in the box during the night all alone while the rest of us are sleeping

4 days ago, around 11-12, cat starts hissing under the door. go to show her nothing is there pick her up and open door the tiniest hair and she starts to flip her shit. Look out the window and there is a fairly large german shepard staring at my door. Cat is full out defenses tail puffed and claws out, protecting her kittens i'm sure. Dog stays around for another 2 hours before finally fucking off. Figure it was crackheads dog and think nothing of it

Hey /an/ sometime ago I had lost a big bar of choc (2kg) after barely using it, it was wrapped in a plastic bag and with its own packaging inside. The bar was disgusting, full of little holes all around, dirt and webs all around it, into the trash it goes!
But now I got a new bar about a month ago, still in the packaging, found a little hole riped and opened it only to find a couple larvae, but barely any holes and webs. I quickly took those off ripped the big bar into smaller pieces, put on a safer plastic container, and then on the freezer to at least kill... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
so this is supposedly a Jurassic world 2 poster and it looks like it has a Carcharodontosaurus skull. I'm sick of this forced diversity, no every movie needs to have African dinosaurs in the lead role? first the spinosaurus and now this? #stoptrexgenocide
>>2234218 The source of entertainment you're looking for is Dinotopia. And the plot has been rumored about the spread of other companies creating dinosaurs and not just Ingen. There were a lot of hints to that in JW like with Wong's line(which I forgot), and the fat guy was trying to use them for military.
>>2234202 Carcharodontosaurus is underrated if you ask me. However, It's probably not going to be in the movie.
>>2234202 What are you talking about? Carcharodontosaurus and T. rex are the same thing. In fact, all the famous, successful T. rex's from popular culture are actually Carcharodontosaurus. Don't you know anything about dinosaur history goy?
So /an/ I was wondering what animal were you in a past life and how do you stay in contact with your animal roots? I used to be a wolf, I was the alpha of the pack and i was killed in a territorial dispute I only eat meat and berries, I love to be asked out for a smoothie wink wink and I take trips to the woods as often as I can I am polyamoruos of course too and I don't see age as that is a human rule

Is it normal for a carrot to go to flower already in its first year? I've sown in February, but they only sprouted in April. All have been harvested now and the soil re-worked, but I let the one that went to flower stand there just because (inb4 it's not a carrot but some ultra toxic apioid! Nah, flower strongly smells like carrot and there's an orange turnip visible just extending a few mm above ground) I wonder, will that one still produce viable seed in the rest of autumn and if not, is the turnip still edible or does flowering of the top make it woody/bitter/crumpled......

>>2207047 Not necessary unless they naturally do it, maybe they find it fun. Make sure your cage can be cleaned easily and focus on litter training rather than making them do things for peanuts. Keep the peanuts in their food bowl instead.
>>2207047 I use to have a pair in a 75 gallon tank. My big boy use to jump up and stand on the edge when I walked in the room when he wanted attention. My female also took in a mouse pinky as her own and they all lived together until old age.

I've fucked up big time. I have three Japanese quails, one (Homu) a rooster, the other two (Mami and Dokes) are girls. Dokes is Homu's partner, kinda. She's at very least submissive. Homu and Mama don't get along well, but they usually keep to themselves. There was a bit of a pecking issue once, homu pecking mami, but I gave them a bigger aviary and they never had a problem for half a year. But a rat tunnelled through the three inches of concrete the aviary was on and we had to move them back to a smaller coup while I built a new, even bigger... Comment too long.

Today I get home early because I quit my job. I go check the quails as always, and I see that homu has gotten himself in mammies cage and has pecked the living shit out of her. Right now she's on anaesthetic, antibiotics and tones of other shit, it's good living with a nurse. The question is: How do I kill Homura? I've gassed tones of rats with my cars exhaust pipe, Berlin style, but I don't feel like that'd be right. I was holding the little fuck by his neck, just wondering if I should let go.

My cat has been acting strange. She's become more reclusive and today she hissed at me. She never hissed at me before. A couple of weeks ago, I took her to the vet for her rabies shot and I was wondering what are the odds that she may have gotten rabies from the vaccine?
>>2238493 Impossible. Your cat got a dead version of the virus; the virus was long dead before your cat got it, before it even went in the vial. In the US live or altered rabies does not leave laboratories. It is illegal for anything but dead rabies vaccine to be distributed anywhere.
Before your cat got into a hissy fit it would have stopped drinking water for days and act very unbalanced. Excessive drooling too.
I'm wracking my brain trying to think of a dog breed that would be a good fit for my in-laws.
My father in law wants to move out to the country soon and wants an alarm dog--not one that will necessarily go after an intruder, but will absolutely wake them up in the middle of the night and sound menacing enough to make an intruder think twice. He said he'd be okay with a "little yapper," but he's the type of guy who would rather have a bigger dog.
My mother in law doesn't really like dogs in general, so something that was very clean, quiet, and would stay out of her way would be best.
Both of them are getting on in years and want to move onto a small piece of land soon. I don't know if they'd be able to keep up with something that needed more than a long evening walk or a good fetch session, and I don't think my father in law is the type who would follow positive-only training, so he'd do best with a breed that was...emotionally very secure.
Father in law likes the look of airedales from what I've seen, as well as German shepherds, malinois, rotties, etc. Don't think mother in law would like an "ugly" dog like a bulldog or mastiff, but I think ultimately it's dad who makes the decision.
So what is a healthy, low/medium energy, aloof, low-maintenance watchdog for two older, more solitary-type people? I think they'd be open to mixed breeds, but would prefer something more predictable.
Hello /an/, Anybody have any experience fostering animals? I'm about 3 years out from finishing my degree, at which point I anticipate moving, marriage, and starting a family. I love cats, but realize it may not be the best time in my life to make the commitment of 14+ years and putting it through all the stress of the changes coming up relatively soon. Fostering would hopefully be less of a time commitment (not day-to-day, but you know what I mean) and help out cats as well. I have the time, space, and finances to responsibly do this. Can we...
