  3. Rabbit Discussion
    So Archie is getting on in his years. I heard that an alfalfa-based pellet mix would benefit his body better. Truth? Well here are 2 brands i am considering. I could even buy both and mix them together if that seems like a good idea. Or if you even have a good pellet diet for an elder bunny...
  4. Rabbit Discussion
    So I'm sure most of you read about me saving Prince the Male Lionhead rabbit from our High School. I have already taken him to the vet and gotten him checked out but here's my main concerns of late. I had the vet check out his eyes and it turned out he just had a swollen gland or something in...
  5. Other Exotics
    Hi, I am currently completing an assignment for my college course about marmoset nutrition. I am struggling to find any information about what supplements an adult marmoset needs? and what diseases or disorders can occur as a result of not getting the right nutrients. I know they need...
  6. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Hey, guys. I'm looking for a high quality gerbil diet with at least 16% protein. My little Nala is pregnant and I just want her to get enough of what she needs. I've been adding Innova Low Fat cat food and she seems to like it, but I would feel more comfortable just feeding a gerbil diet. I...
  7. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Hi, I'm getting gerbils this summer(I wish my mom didn't make me wait so long)! I just have a few questions. First of all, if I get 2 from a pet store such as Petsmart/Petco, and they're from the same tank in the store, can I put them together when I take them home? Or would they fight? Also...
  8. Rabbit Discussion
    I’ve heard that cilantro is good for rabbits, I’m just wondering why? My rabbits get unlimited Timothy hay, ¼ cup of pellets (oxbow) and four different kinds of leafy greens a day. I don’t mind feeding it to them; I’m just wondering if they actually NEED it. And how much a day? Thanks for any...
  9. General Animal Discussion
    Not sure how we got on the subject but a friend and I were talking about vegetarian dogs and cats. Cats had severely negative reviews clearly because cats are carnivores. Dogs however...well it is debated on what they really are. Not to start a debate...just a question really. Most cat...
  10. Dogs
    I used to gorge/fast my dogs (not by choice...they usually fasted themselves) and allow them to eat a little more than 3% of their body weight (including the small dogs.) In turn, they would usually not eat the next day or two simply because they didn't want to. I always thought that it was...
  11. Hedgehog Discussion
    Hey hedgehog experts! I have had 3 hedgehogs in my life, the current one is a plump african pygmy pinto hedgehog girl. Her name is Izzie :) I fear that I have conditioned her to be a picky eater. Thus, the vet has asked me to cut down on the fat and protein and offer fruits, veggies and leaner...
  12. Sugar Glider Discussion
    I just joined TWO seconds ago, mainly because I'd love advice from fellow suggie owners (or just people that are knowledgeable), instead of hunting for information on the internet (which I've already done). I just got my cutie today, Gizmo (he's 8 weeks old), and he'd a handful already but I'm...
  13. Ferret Discussion
    my sister was just telling me she feeds her ferret peanut better and fruit and milk cuz her vet said it was a good way to fatten them up where they had been abused and were very skinny. that doesnt sound good for them at all is the vet a total crack head?
  14. Rabbit Discussion
    So I went out and bought some better pellets and hay for the newly-named Hammurabi (as well as a proper hay rack and another litter box). I read that hay is insta-change (yay for allergies!) but do I slowly wean Hamm off the pellets and onto the new ones? Is it like birds? I also bought a...
  15. Ferret Discussion

  16. Degu Discussion
    Hiya, I fostered some degus a year back...and as such became a failed fosterer because I kept them :) However, I am having trouble with their diet and before last year I know very little of their history. So, Harold and Humphrey came to me last year through someone who was going to "throw them...
  17. Amphibians
    I know everyone is different and that's awesome, but I wanted to see the schedule and amount/types of food you feed your amazing African Clawed Frogs? Our babies Haus & Froggy D are ACF'S & are 1 years old so they are still small. We feed them 2 red wigglers a piece every other day for the...

  19. Ferret Discussion
    Hi all. I'm new to this forum. My Tinky has been ill this past week and is feeling better and gaining weight thanks to the A/D soft food and a little heavy cream. At first we had to feed her with a syringe. She was skin and bones. She has been eating this for about 3 days now and I was...
