broken leg

  1. Rabbit Discussion
    Okay so recently the teacher of the school began giving away all the rabbits! He was going to give my favorite rabbit away to a completely dumb and horrible owner so I offered to take him instead. So I brought him home. So yes, it may have been a bad decision due to the fact that it was all upon...
  2. Chinchilla Discussion
    I've got 2 chins both born in may a couple weeks apart. The younger of the two, Sam, caught his front paw between two bars at the bottom of the door to his cage and twisted his paw and/or leg around as he was jumping in from my girlfriend's hand. He hasn't used his paw since and it's been about...
  3. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Last week my daughter's hamster got out of his cage. Turns out the clip on the top flap was broke. We ended up finding him downstairs. Both of his back legs are broke with one being far worse. I took him to the vet and they said they really couldn't splint them because he would chew it off. He...

  5. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    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...
  6. General Animal Discussion
    Hi all, I have a dwarf hamster who broke her right hind leg about a week ago. She’s coming to 2years of age. Anyway, I brought her to a vet on the same day she brought her leg. And the vet x-rayed it and bought that it had been broken in two parts. She broke it by falling off the table. I...
  7. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I took in 3 gerbils a month ago, someone was giving them away for free. She said they were 9 months old and had never had any offsrping. Well, they just had babies 3 days ago. So, now I was trying to sex the adults to see who was the dad, or if there were 2 females, etc. I successfully checked...
  8. Rabbit Discussion
    I don't own rabbits, and don't know much about the different rabbit breeds, so maybe you guys can help. :) I have always wondered what type of rabbit this is. It lived in our neighbor's yard (but the poor thing was killed on Halloween)...

    Last night my mom came home with a baby rabbit that they had found in a neighbor's yard. One of the neghbors had stepped on it and I believe it has a broken leg *(back left leg). He had very light bleeding from his nose. This morning I checked on it and noticed it's right eye is swollen and...

  11. Pet Health Concerns
    I need help. I have an African Dwarf frog that has at least one broken leg, and I suspect 2. On in the front and the opposite back one. When he tries to swim, he swims in circles, and couldn't make it to the top of the tank. I suspect my Betta was picking on him, but couldn't prove it. I...

  14. Lost Animals
    As me and my brother was coming in from the stables, there was a dog lying on the mat outside the front door. A little Jack Russel. She is the sweetest animal ever, and I have fallen in love with her already. I wish I could keep her, but my other dogs would probably kill her. My husky is fine...
  15. Dogs
    Anyone have any experience? Creole is just completely confusing me and his food aggression is getting worse, not better. We've been handfeeding him for weeks. Prior to that, he (just like Gumbo) had to be in a down and wait before eating, to keep control over the food in my court. While...
  16. Dogs
    This is a bit of a weird post, please don't see it as a drama starter. I don't want anyone to argue, I'm looking to get rid of a prejudice and cure a phobia underneath it all. Due to some experiences as a child I have quite a bad prejudice against pitts and staffs. I recognise that it is...
  17. Lizards
    Anyone know of any reliable leopard gecko breeders near MD or that ship? A friend of mine got one from the pet store that ended up having a broken leg. The pet store is paying for the vet but they said he might not get it back because the vet might not be able to do anything. I think he's just...

  20. Pet Health Concerns
    Last night around midnight I heard my dwarf hamster, Elliot, scratching around so I looked into her cage to see that she had gotten her foot stuck between the little plastic "balcony" attached to the upper part of the cage and the wire of the cage bars. I helped her get it out, but now she is...
