    Me and my girlfriend picked up a young dwarf lop rabbit the other day from the pet shop, before getting him we did some research on bunnies and so we expected an uphill fight getting him to like us. Suprisingly it seems to have gone much better then expected, but I would like to ask a few...

  7. Aquatic Discussion
    Well, I just got wind of something sort of distressing - I am basically killing my daughter's goldfish in the tank I have them in. That being said, I want to get them out of there ASAP and into something proper because frankly, I feel like a terrible fish mommy. But the problem is, I have never...
  8. Chinchilla Discussion
    Hi everyone, I've joined this forum because I have concerns with my female chinchilla. She has demonstrated a few behavioral problems, the latest being fur biting. She's pulled out the shiny fur on one side of her body, revealing the woolly under-layer, but not down to her skin. In the past she...

  12. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    The title of this thread is kind of a lie. I've had my two male rats for about a month now, so I guess they're not TECHNICALLY new to my home. These two boys are my very first rats. I did loads of researching before I got these two rats, and I feel as if I'm doing everything right so far in...

    I've written about her before, but my little peanut, Macey, is about 3/4 of an inch long and her spots have just started to really show. She's really little. In your opinion how much should she be eating & how many times a week? As of now I'm taking our adult ADF, Siriya, out when Macey eats...

    Hello everyone, So my squirmy little hamster leapt from my hands and fell about three feet on his butt and now one of his hind legs has an awkward limp. I've waited it out a few days and took it to the pet shop for them to look at it (surely they've seen a few broken hamster legs before). It...

    Now that I have multiple ADF's frogs I need to find tongs so they can all nom-nom on the cubes at once when we do feed them said cubes. Everything I find seem to be "cooking tongs"...does anyone know of places for the device I'm looking for? You know the slimmer ones?
