    Hey everyone! I need some serious help. I got a girl prairie dog about 6 months ago and it has not been the best. The pet store I got her from did not take good care of her at all so I more rescued her than anything. When I got her she had a deep cut on her left paw and it's even deformed. Part...
  2. Degu Discussion
    Hi there I just recently got a couple of rescue degu's. I'm new to degu's though not to rodents. I also have hamsters and gerbils. I am finding that the degu's are very inquisitive, but are nibblers. It's usually okay, and sometimes they will groom my hand but my one degu, Nutmeg, has taken to...

    My daughter is 17 and bought a male pd about 6 weeks ago. The pet store told us he is 3 mo old when we bought him. That would put him at about 4 1/2 mo old now. When we first got him, we didn't really know what to do with him, just held him, he squirmed away a lot so we bought a bonding bag...

    We just brought home our new baby holland lop bunny this weekend. He is 9 weeks old and really sweet as we got him from a great breeder and he has been handled since birth. It's cuteness overload! Everything he does is so adorable I can't stand it! :-) I'm discovering how much I really...

    I recently adopted 2 young degus. They are not even both full-grown yet, and are both males. I have been trying to socialize them but I keep getting bitten whenever I pick them up... and of course it hurts with those sharp little rodent teeth! I have tried picking them up with a cloth and even a...
  7. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I just adopted two 5 month old male spiny mice yesterday. When they arrived at my house, I noticed one had bite marks on his tail and back. His ears are also pretty chewed up, but they're healed so I'm assuming that happened quite a while ago. The person I adopted them from said they have been...

  10. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Hello everyone! My boyfriend and I recently got a male Russian dwarf hamster. At the petsmart where we bought him, he seemed nervous when we touched him but did not bit at all. However after a couple of days when I was changing his water and food he would nip me a bit. I figured it was because I...

  13. Degu Discussion
    Two weeks ago I got two female Degus from a lady in Vancouver who'd had them for 5 years. I researched ways to tame them and i knew it would be hard since they were older but the one degu always bites me and trys to bite me when i give him food by hand. I even read that when you hand feed them...
  14. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    SO as some of you may remember, I got Wrinkles the hairless rat on Christmas morning. So I've had him for almost four months now. Things were going good for the first week or so and we had some ice storms so I waited to travel into the city to get another friend for him. So it was just him and I...

    One of my foster mice is being extremely aggressive with me and my other females to the point that she attempted to rip another females foot off, every time I go to pick up their food bowl she flies out of her box and tries very hard to bite me. She is pregnant and I know that, that can bring...

    i just got a new hamster about a week ago, and was 3-4 days old at the time. he's been perfect until yesterday, when he started sneezing a lot and biting whereas he's never bitten at all. his testicles seem a bit red and swollen and he's a lot more inactive. when we got him he was pratically...
  17. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I know that rodents will nibble on your finger to taste you and check that you are not food. What does it mean if my gerbil does this tasting thing first, them calmly bites hard. It's not hard enough to bleed, but it sure hurts!

    I have had my sugar glider, Luna for a little over 30 days. She came from a pet store where she had been alone in a cage for probably 8 month. She was not handled. I have been working with her every day. I put her in her snuggle pouch and carry her around. Then once in a while I open up the...
