  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Is it normal for rats to eat their bedding? I mean I know females nest but this not a female who's moving or eating bedding. Pop is a male, 4-5 inches long from nose to butt, and he's been eating bedding lately? Should I be worried about him? I've only had him and his brother since Thursday...

    Hey guys! I just adopted two leopard geckos (mom and daughter) ages two and three. I had done some previous research and the people who I got them from we're not taking care of them properly. They are in a 29 gal tank with a heating pad under one side. It has three rocks and a shallow water...

    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...

    I need help with veggies for my rabbits (and guinea pig-if anyone knows about guinea pigs). I've haven't been very good about feeding them veggies over the years. I know it's bad and I feel horrible about it. But I'm feeding them veggies on a daily basic now. But the problem is because they...

    I really need to get Blitzen to stop eating everything on the ground outside when we go out for walks. This morning, he tried to eat glass, it was the top part of a broken alcohol bottle. I took it out of his mouth with a fight, but I think it cut him a little. I've been trying "drop it" and...

I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas to help...
  12. Aquatic Discussion
    Hello, I bought a Pleco at my LFS a few weeks ago because I had a ton of algae growing in my tank. A few days after I bought him he ate all of the algae off of the tank. Ever since then he is swimming and hiding, but I don't know what he eats to keep himself full. So a few days ago I tried to...

  14. Degu Discussion
    Hello, I have two four month old male degus. I think one of them has something wrong with his oral cavity. I noticed last night he has developed a fairly bad right twitch whilst eating (his balance is ok otherwise, so reckon it may be pain related?). He had a fall a week ago; he seemed...

    Okay heres the deal. We're not new to rodents. But, we do have our first bunny. He's doing well, we got him from a pet store, but a small local one that gets their bunnies from a local breeder, I imagine these are the bunnies they don't sell for show. I tried to go directly through a breeder...

    Shiloh and Phineas are very picky eaters. They barely eat any of their food when they are in the cage. They were on a seed mix before and were quite chunky. They are already losing weight, but I don't want them to lose too much too fast! I feed Oxbow Regal Rat as the base of all my boys'...
