  4. Degu Discussion
    I was wondering what sort of toys I should buy for my soon-to-be goos. Since there isn't any Degu toys, I didn't know if I should go with chin, rat, ferret, or some rabbit toys.

    I have a Syrian hamster whom I've taken to the vet two times for her sneezing. The first time he gave her an antibiodic to take every 12 hours, and the second time a cordazon shot. Her sneezes have reduced, but she's still sneezing. I was thinking she's possibly allergic to her food. She's...

    I am looking for a nice dog bed for Logan and I am willing to spend upwards of $100 or so. I bought a dog bed for the foster dog we had but it is awful. The stuffing is lumpy and after washing it, it had a hole on the side. I am looking at an Orthopedic bed because at least I know the bed...

    What do you think of this? Carefresh Pet Bedding I like it because it can be used for several different kinds of animals! I use it for my ferrets & am much happier with it than with other beddings/litters I have used in the past. Overall- it does an excelent job of absorbing odors & keeping...
