  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    homemade mouse diet safe? Hi I'm new here and just wanted to know if my diet plan is going to work for 2 female mice. The reason I decided to make my own diet is that most commercial rodent diets today are full of terrible potentially harmful ingredients leading me to try to create an all...
  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I've a one-year-old rat named Mikey. He's pretty friendly and forward, given that when he was born, I socialized him with people and other animals. However, there's one thing that he really hates; Broccoli! Have you ever tried feeding your rat broccoli? Is it really a rat-thing or is it...
  3. Prairie Dog Discussion
    Getting 4, three month old pd's tomorrow. I have built a 16'x8' enclosure outside with 3 1/2' walls with metal to keep from climbing. It has black, flexible, 4'' pipe on the ground that has two openings that go to four different hidey houses, all under the dirt, and all inter connected for...
  4. Lizards
    So I really, really love to own a snake or a monitor lizard. Really any big lizard. They are so cool and fascinating and I have already gotten the chance to hold one and I am okay with it. I mean, this is a big want on my list. I love snakes (boas, pythons, ect.) and I would so love to own one...

  6. Dogs
    Hey all, My partner and I just adopted a small dog, likely a terrier mix, from the local shelter. Her paperwork says she's about 5 years of age, but I'm not sure I believe it; she acts older, her teeth are quite worn, and her energy level, at least to me, indicates that she might be a bit...
  7. Rabbit Discussion
    Hi, I'm new here. I found this forum when I was looking for some information about my newest member of the family, Fluffy the Lionhead Rabbit (better name then bunny the guinea pig who passed away this week after many years of being a good little piggy, and his cagemate had passed a few months...
  8. Rabbit Discussion
    Admittedly, I'm a neat freak. When I got Oliver, I had no idea that he would challenge every notion I had about pets and what a mess they make; bunnies are so, so messy! It's not that they mean to be, but they poop a lot, and they need to eat a lot of hay, and it kind of ends up everywhere, it...
  9. 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...
  10. Dogs
    When I feed the puppies ( 2 - 8 week old boxers) it says to feed the 2 1/4 cups per day so we feed half around 8am and the other half around 5pm. When they don't eat all their 8am food we add it to the 5pm food and they have yet to eat it all. Should we had another feeding? Are the feeding times...
  11. Amphibians
    I've written about her before, but my little peanut, Macey, is about 3/4 of an inch long and her spots have just started to really show. She's really little. In your opinion how much should she be eating & how many times a week? As of now I'm taking our adult ADF, Siriya, out when Macey eats...
  12. Amphibians
    I bought some worms from the Petsmart, but now some of them are dead :( They were alive at one point, though. Is it absolutely not okay to feed my frogs dead worms? Will they get diseases? I'd hate to have to waste the last 8, but I am totally willing to do so! Let me know as soon as...
  13. Degu Discussion
    Hi all. Brand new worried degu owner here! Ha :) 2 females, young (not sure how old. size of gerbils, maybe tiny bit smaller) im worried about how they are both eating. i feed them in the morning and in the evening, i give them a teaspoon of degu food each and put a couple of chinchilla...
  14. Chinchilla Discussion
    I was wondering if my chin's appetite is healthy. I feed them (I have 2) pellets in the evening (about 4tbsp total) and I always put hay in their bowl when I see it empty. However, it seems to always be empty. They can go through about 5oz in a day sometimes. I know they aren't supposed to over...
  15. Amphibians
    Now that I have multiple ADF's frogs I need to find tongs so they can all nom-nom on the cubes at once when we do feed them said cubes. Everything I find seem to be "cooking tongs"...does anyone know of places for the device I'm looking for? You know the slimmer ones?
  16. Amphibians
    Each of my frogs are about 1.75-2 inches length wise w/ thick healthy thighs and the most adorable flippers. Their absolute max food wise is 3 live red wigglers (they are a little smaller than earth worms!). Over-feeding can be a huge problem though and I wanted to see what you guys think...

  18. Snakes
    So I was wondering if it would be okay to feed a Thamnophis with live skrimp? I really want some shrimp (CRS and so on), and I really want some ribbon snakes (different species) at some point. I was thinking it would be fun to breed a little guppies, also because they are nice to look at. But...
  19. Hedgehog Discussion
    For months now I have been feeding my hedgehog Ron Jeremy a small handful of food. I keep food in his bowl so whenever he's hungry he has it. Should I feed my hedgehog at a certain time each day? Once a day or more? Is there a certain portion I should be feeding him? These are vital questions...
  20. Rabbit Discussion
    Hi. :) I just got a lionhead bunny on Thursday. I'm not sure how old it is because the pet store didn't seem to know, though they guessed about 7 weeks. I would say its between 5-7 when I compare it to other bunnies I see online. He/She is very small, but very fluffy. I also don't know its...
