  2. Ferret Discussion
    Lately, my two ferrets seem to be scratching at their ears more than normal. I cleaned them today and it was the same old dark brown color, but it still has me worried. They squirmed and kicked while I cleaned, which is unusual in itself since they used to just sit there and endure patiently...

  4. The Water Cooler
    Hello everyone, I'm sure you all have noticed my failure to be active once more. Well, it's been rough since I got my lil guinea pigs. Things just somehow started to slide downhill and with the big move coming up it makes me want to scream. Now mind you not EVERYTHING is bad but close enough. 3...

  6. Cats
    Hi, I'm a new member. I've had cats all my life and I've just adopted two from the local humane society to be my current companions: Their names are Kizmet (above) and Edwyn (below). Kizmet was the smallest of the large group of kittens he was housed with, and he seems to be a bit prone to...

  8. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I have two 2 year and 4 month old girls. I got them at 7 months old, and frankly did a very bad job at socializing them. :rolleyes: Here's a picture: The dark ones is Twee, an agouti berkshire, and the round bum is Ferkel, a rex agouti berkshire. Twee is doing great, despite having at least 3...

  11. Rabbit Discussion
    I didn't want to post about this until I felt a little more comfortable with his chances. I so hate to tell a horror story. Anyway, I was out at my rabbit breeder's place a month or so ago. Last fall she picked up a stock of show rabbit breeders. Well, almost all the does were completely...

  13. Rabbit Discussion
    My bunbun has, since I got her 2 months ago, occasionally shaken her head or ears, and I'm wondering if this is anything to be concerned about. I see her do this probably once or maybe twice a day. She had her checkup at the vet 2 weeks after I got her. Doc checked her ears and said they were...
  14. Debate Forum
    what do you think about outdoor vs indoor dogs? i do believe its best to house a dog indoors if at all possible. but thats not an option for some people. i personally never had an indoor dog. my daddy bred AKC rotts when i was a kid. oh boy were they spoild and taken care of! my mother also has...
  15. Rabbit Discussion
    I think my bunny might have wry neck. Anyone have experience with this? I had a bunny when I was a kid that had it. We took him to the vet and he told us that there wasn't anything he could do to help him. So my bunny just stayed with his head tilted until he passed on. :( Two days ago, I...
  16. General Animal Discussion
    Hi all, I'm new to this site but have been involved in animal rescue for years now, and thought it would be fun to share some rescue stories.

  19. Dogs
    I have a white boxer with Demodex (sp?) mange. I've been to three different vets and they all say something different. I looked it up on the web, and everything says something different as well. I was wondering if anyone knows what exactly I can do to help him out.
  20. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I know I have posted this before, but all of my newest littler has this nose thing going on. I am getting worried now. It is just them that are getting it. Giacomo the first who got it and I thought he was getting better, well he isn't. Neosporin isn't working, changing the bedding didn't solve...
