Hey /an/, I don't come here much but I had a question.
I'll soon find myself moving from Philadelphia to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Along with me I'll be bringing my cockatiel.
What are some guidelines on getting my bird ready for travel to a new country? Also, which airlines allow pets (preferably in the cabin, unless it's a better idea not to)? I don't have to leave from Philly per se, as long as I get on an airline that allows birds on board.
So I'm pretty autistic about this whole thing because this bird is literally... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2026769 Well importing cockatiels is illegal in some countries because they're worried you're capturing them wild from Australia. So the first step would be to determine if you can get your bird through customs.
There might be a quarantine issue if they are allowed. Parrots carry psittacosis which is transmissible to humans.
Carrying the bird in the cabin is the best thing. I don't know if you can though. I remember reading a book about Alex the African Grey parrot by Irene Pepperburg. She said... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Are there any entry level vet tech jobs? I was under the impression that the job I'm about to put in for was for a vet assistant job, but I was told last night it was for vet tech. My boyfriends uncle is putting in a word for me, and I've got a resume/cover letter put together, but is there any chance? The uncle said it was entry level, but I don't know, I assume all vet tech job require degrees.I took a veterinary assistant class in 2011 and got a cert for it, but otherwise I'm a customer service loser.

You should know by now how much competition there is for pretty much any job involving animals. Everything has to be neatly perfect. No 5 year old training courses, with gaps of inactivity in the middle. If you had taken that course and worked in the field for the last 5 years, your prospects would have been much better. If you don't have all your shit... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>2026605 You can save up money now before he has signs. Unfortunately GSDs are bred to shit so it won't be too uncommon if he gets hip disorder. But he isn't even 2 months old yet, and hip disorders generally don't show signs until at least a few years of age. Set a fund aside just for medical emergencies now, and you can dip into it if something ever happens. I understand fixing a bad hip is a lot of money to suddenly pour into. While you may have cash for the food, toys, treats, training, yearly vet visits,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2026527 Don't know a lot about them but what I do know is I have a cop friend that trains police dogs and I help him by wearing the suit playing the bad guy. German shepherds and Dobermans run at you and slow down staying on the ground before grabbing you the weimaraners fly in the air hitting you knocking you down to the ground before trying to tear your arm off. The are quicker to learn and have more stamina.
Considering feeding my dog a raw food diet. Need advice to not potentially kill my dog with either bacterial infection or eating to much organ meat. Not looking to go overboard initially like buying a meat grinder etc. Just wanna know the basics. I got a chihuahua and a German Shepard. Tell me your secrets.
