today my 6 year old staffordshire passed out at the beach while walking her. I didn't see her pass out as she was a fair way behind me with a stick. I thought she was just lying down and called her, she kept laying down. Ran up to her and her tongue was hanging out, no pulse, not breathing. Cleared her throat (bits of bark and stick in there) and picked her up then started running to the surf club, thinking she was dead while screaming for help.
halfway back she opens an eye slowly, then the other, looks at me blankly for a minute... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
She probably was asphyxiating on wood? As cool of a meme it is to find random pieces of wood lying around and get a natures toy for your dog. You have to accept that they can break and carry fungi or other harmful things.
What do you do when an animal's been killed by a car? I was visiting some family today, and when I was leaving, I noticed there was a lump on the road that hadn't been there a few hours ago. I was pretty sure it was a dead cat. So about a mile down the road, I decided to turn around, get out of my car, and pick it's body off the road with a grocery bag I had lying around. I left it sitting on the ground next to the sidewalk. It was pretty late at night, but should I have left a message at my local animal control center about it? It didn't seem right to just...

>>2025093 You are better off leaving it in the road for the scavengers or other carrion animals to deal with it. You just left it in a bag by the road? Why did you even fuck with it to begin with you silly faggot?
I have a cat (1.5 yrs) a kitten (10 months) and my roommate has a dog (1.5 yrs)
My cat is getting the shit end of the stick in this situation. The kitten feels entitled to all of the food in the cat bowls. I hear they eat a lot as babies but this is ridiculous. The kitten is getting fatter while my cat slowly starves.
At the same time, the dog wont let the cat leave my room. So he's sad and sometimes cries when im not there. My roommate tells him to shut up instead of comforting him.
I got the kitten to keep the cat company, but he just plays with the dog and as i mentioned before, eats all of the food.
I'm moving soon to give me and my cats some much needed space. until then what can i do to help my cat be comfortable?
>>2024944 yeah, those are all wildcaught, probably already dying when they arrive in the store due to internal parasites and the majority of wildcaughts are adult males that don't have much time left anyway.
you'll end up with a dead spider.
even if you get captive bred Theraphosa species they're still tricky to keep.
you can order them online on bugzuk, I've used that site before, they have a pretty neat collection and the prices are good.
I'm thinking about getting a second cockatiel, but his cage wouldn't be good be a good size for two birds. Would This cage be okay for two cockatiels? If not, what size would you recommend? any help is majorly appreciated, thanks!
I forgot to post the link like a dumb shit, here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bird-Cage-Parrot-Aviary-Black-Wheel-Stand-Ladder-Perches-Large-170cm-/351062573884?tfrom=390467213857&tpos=top&ttype=price&talgo=undefined
I would reccomend getting two birds. 9 -5 is 8 hours alone every day. I have just one cockatiel but i am home all day so hes not lonely. He gets pissed off if hes left alone for more thsn an hour if im out shopping. The cage looks fine, mine is smaller but he is out of the cage most of the time. I think its very important to have atleast one room that your bitd can roam in. I dont agree with wing clipping, just be very careful when your bird is out the cage. But mine will always eventually go back in, especially if i put his food back in. Mine was an adoption so... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Went out today and bought a Campbell's Dwarf Hamster (aka Russian Dwarf Hamster).
The little guy seems tame as anything, he's only young(ish) and was bought from a commercial pet store.
I've read online that you should be quiet and leave the guy alone for a day until he settles in, but from the word go he was running around his cage, peering out at us, really doesn't seem timid or shy at all.
My big worry is him getting wet tail or something if we handle him too soon, a few members of the family are just peering and watching,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2024742 Just give him a couple hours, he'll most likely be fine if he isn't too stressed out. Pet store hamster temperaments vary so greatly that you really don't know how they're gonna react. Can I ask what you're keeping him in and what size wheel he has? Just checking, since maybe only 10-20% of hamsters are in appropriately sized cages.
>>2024745 It's a two storey plastic tank/ cage combo (50/50 transparent plastic and metal grill), total floor (ground and first floors) space I'd say is about 3-4 sq. ft. (4000 cm sq.) which I've read should be enough?
The wheel is around 15cm diameter (6"), by the looks of it he can run just fine without arching his back any.
At the minute he's just sleeping and occasionally rooting around finding more paper for his nest and drinking water, he seems pretty content, fed him a little bit... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2024750 Yep, that's more than enough. Good job OP. Just give him a few hours; he sounds like he'll be fine if you handle him then. If you're still concerned about it, maybe let him crawl into his hand on your own if he's willing.
Hey guys, this may be a bit of /adv/ but it's mostly pet related.
My dog is sick with a serious virus, and my girlfriend and myself have been doing everything we can, but it seems some days he does better, then suddenly decays a bit more. I know the time is coming, but my girlfriend wants to continue finding new medication to help him, he's got progressive paralysis on all 4 legs and obviously cannot stand up.
He is able to drink and eat just fine and everything other than that, the real problem I am facing is that I am afraid to make a decision because... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2024633 We basically got wingless dragons once. Dragons wouldn't really be a successful animal. If it was, it'd probably look a lot different and less cool. It would also have to have either HUGE fucking wings or it'd be small.
I'd like a bit of advice /an/. I have had a cat for about 5 years, who lived pretty well with my dog, and lately he's been acting very strange and aggressive. He was always bothered by people yelling and the like and sometimes even assaulted my mother for yelling, but we could pass that off. What's strange is that lately, he has an odd dynamic with the dog - my brother picked her up, and he immediately meowed as if someone was attacking him, and assaulted my brother. It's been small incidents like that, about one a week, and about an hour ago it happened... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2024324 But in a very odd and aggressive way - when the dog vomited I was just looking at her, and he constantly bothers the dog too, going over to her, sniffing her and then biting for no reason. She never fights back but is clearly uncomfortable and always tries to get away from him when he's like that.
