My dog (who looks like pic related), was brutally attacked by three rottweiler, they broke five of his ribs and damaged his right lung. This happened about three hours ago. The veterinarian says that there's a chance he might not make it (I like to think that it wont happen) and that if he lives there might be sequels that will affect him. I'd like to know what do you guys think? will he be alright? will there be any sequels in the future? Even if you don't know anything of veterinary, some kind words would be very appreciated (I know i'm in 4chan but even... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm possible to know. I assume by sequels you mean like symptoms that don't go away such as a shortness of breath or something. Or even seizures. Really at this point anything can happen and it could be really bad but at the same time there is every reason to hope that it might turn out just okay. Tons of issues he may be left with can be dealt with with anti seizure meds, just watching that he doesn't over exert himself and that sort of thing.
At this moment I think the best thing you should... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Whelp, considering my aunt's dog (who looks like the OP's) got literally eviscerated by a chocolate lab and somehow managed to survive means there is hope. Granted, he was put back together at one of the best vet schools in the country and to the tune of $8k, but anything is possible. This was five years ago and he's still doing well sans kidney and several inches of intestine.
>>2034288 Ya, be careful with some of the diets here. Lots of them seem like fads, and I would rather not have my dog be a guinea pig just find out in ten years that it wasn't a good thing for them at all.
>>2034227 The class Cephalopoda has three/four subclasses (depending the taxonomist) and only two of them remain in the Holocene which are the Nautiloids and Coleoids. And since every non-shelled cephalopod is in the second one saying that a squid is a type of cuttlefish is like stating that a horse is a type of monkey.
Don't know if it's the right place (there's no gardening board), but maybe some /an/on has greener thumbs than I.
I was given a very large branch of a lovely jasmine shrub from a relative, and I've placed short sections of it (~25cm) in water, hoping they'd send out roots from between the segments so I can later plant them in soil; but (while still alive and green) they don't take out roots, as other segmented plants have for me.
I've very little experience, is there a way to encourage it to grow, like adding certain nutrients... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2034049 Usually you're supposed to take cuttings in the spring or summer when the plant is actively growing. Sticking the cuttings in as well draining potting mix and keeping it moist is usually enough to get it rooted.
There's a gardening thread on /out/ that may be able to help you more than /an/.
dawww s/he just wants to be close. Poor little animals cant understand why their human hero wants to sit in one place and stare at a little flashing square all day. If you saw an animal doing that you might think it was ill and want to comfort it. Maybe s/he's hoping you will get better and snap out of it.
Now I have a solitary male. He was the only boy out of the batch when a friend's pig got preggers, and she tried to get him a couple male playmates but he rather violently attacked both. Those two get along, but he didn't want to be around anyone - no females, no males.
I took him in a little under a year ago, and I keep him with me pretty much all the time. He's either on my desk or in his cage near my desk whenever I'm home, and has a secondary enclosure that's a bit more roomy for when... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2033871 In rare cases there are guinea pigs that should not have a cage mate. I would still suggest getting another guinea pig and having that one live next to him in a separate cage. Also how did you introduce him to the other pigs? If you put them in his cage that might be why he attacked them. Guinea Pigs need to be introduced to each other on neutral territory.
>>2033902 I don't really remember how my friend did it when he lived with her. I got him some stuffed animals that he cuddles with and stuffs into his hutch for me to have to clean later, but the few times he's seen another live pig since then (such as when she had me sit her pigs for a week) he's been growling and teeth chattering from sight onwards.
I think he might be a little psychopath or something, but if he's chill with me I guess it's okay.
>>2033778 I might like to add to be more specific.
The spoodle is very passive and never bites or is aggressive. He will never even attempt to bite or tell off the whippet. Just yelp and cry.
The whippet does not bite in an agressive way. Just imagine dogs running around in circles like they do but my whippet instead of sort of catching and maybe wrestling he will bite HARD on the tail or ears of my spoodle but will not do this to any other dog.
