Thinking of getting a PD pup!
Hello, I'm new to the forum and I'm very much considering a PD! I recently had my boy guinea pig pass away from bacteria infections in his intestines... Which was very hard for me to get over. I did take him to the vet, she gave him 3 medications which didn't help very much. I have always fancied prairie dogs, and I figured I'd join a forum group that has a dedication forum for PDs!
When I was younger, my aunt baby sat a Pd named Squeakers and she had a container that people use for medications per day, that had a lot of vitamins and stuff he took everyday/every week. Is that necessary for all PDs?
I was considering getting a multi-leveled chinchilla cage that is ~ 2.5x18x3 feet that I've used when I had my chinchillas.
I'd like opinions/facts to lead me correctly:
What food do you use?
Best way to bond/train?
I live in Houston, Tx so I am considering going to S&S Exotics, I have been there 3 times and it is fairly nice. I do want a pup, so I'm willing to wait til the correct time.
