    Hi, my little Chinese Dwarf Hamster Rosie has a build up of fluid in her ovaries. I noticed a large lump on her side/stomach before her back leg and then a smaller one on the other side. I took all 3 of my dwarfs for a check up the week before and neither myself or the vet noticed it then. I...

    I have had three African Dwarf frogs for almost a week. I've been feeding them fish flakes with a baster and at first my frogs really liked them, but now they aren't eating the fish flakes anymore. I have also tried pellets and sun-dried baby shrimp, but nothing seems to be working. I don't have...

    Thought I'd share a few photos of my Russian (hybrid) dwarf hamster Olive! I adopted her August 17th 2010 and she was born in early June sometime ... so she's coming up to about 16 months now. If I had to sum up Olive in two words they would be 'lazy' and 'greedy'! She loves eating and lazing...

    Hi, I'm concerned about my ADF. On her right front leg where her webbing is, there is red and it looks smaller than normal. When I bought her from the store she had a bump on her left back leg, but I had no idea if that was normal or why she had that? When I brought her home she was very active...

    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...

    So I received for Christmas two African Dwarf Frogs, allegedly from Brookstone, which I researched and found was awful. I have purchased a 3.5 gallon tank, a heater, new gravel, new plants, new everything, and plan to move my little inch-long frogs next Saturday. They are doing okay so far, and...

    Hi everyone! :wave: I am a new(ish) bunny owner. I had a grey dwarf many years ago when I was about 10. Since then I've owned gerbils and rats. Those guys are nice, but they didn't quite 'fit' me. A few weeks ago I helped a friend bunny-sit. I was hooked after that! The big lop we watched...

    Hey! OK, I wanted to clear up a few things before I pick a new breeding pair. I know that you can't breed two mottled red-eyed hamsters, but can you breed: 1. A mottled red-eye to a mottled black-eye? or: 2. A mottled black-eye to a mottled black-eye? or: 3. A solid red-eye to a mottled...

    The cage recommended by the pet store for Winston Shiny-sides actually turned out to be not that great. It was, as many cages are, built for hamsters and rats rather than mice. After it turned out he was too scared to use the crazy climbing tube for anything other than a toilet and he could...

    Hi all, I'm living in Toronto. I am looking for white dwarf hamsters. However, in the past week I couldn't find one from all the pet stores around my area.

    We really need help and I don't trust our petstore. We do not have any aquadic vets. I recently bought 2 ADFs from a local pet store. After transferring them to their new home, I noticed that Shovie kept his left arm drawn up to him, unused. The next day, he had a small, red hematoma on...

She has a wheel and decided to make a nest in it and she pees and poops in the wheel and then sleeps in it meaning the poop and pee in the...
