No we don't breed prairie dogs. From what I've heard, you either have breeders or pets, usually not both. Alot of them get very moody during rut. I have considered breeding, but I don't know where I would put all the babies I couldn't bring myself to part with. If I get any more I will have to hang them from the ceiling.
I don't have the brains or money to become a vet, but wish I could get educated on treating just prairie dogs. No vets in our town know much about them. I have to travel about 100 miles to take my babies to a competant vet. It scares me to death to think about having an emergency. We had a really close call recently. Our Teddy Bear hung a toenail & pulled it out. I just knew we were going to lose him. It would not stop bleeding. My shirt was soaked. He was soaked. We finally went to bed, thinking he may not survive, but when we got up the next morning, It was like nothing ever happened. There was not a spec of blood anywhere.
We don't do any rehabilitating, but have adopted a couple of adult pds. One came from a couple who couldn't take care of her anymore, & one came from an abusive home. He is an un-neutered male. Suddenly two of our girls plumped up & I teased them about sneaking into Crickets' cage.
