  6. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Has anyone dealt with lice on their rats/mice? My vet found lice on mine several weeks ago, and they were on oral meds for 3 weeks. Well, I think they have them still/again. I was just wondering if anyone has been successful in getting rid of them, and what worked for you?

    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...

    Sasami we could use your opinion. The fishes we had wintered in the basement have gotten a very bad case of ick. I swear I took a good look at them no more than 2 weeks ago and they were fine. And now they are awful! I am not sure exactly when it started. I found them yesterday. I put in melafix...

  11. Dogs
    How well does doggy obedience school work for adult dogs versus puppies? We adopted a lab mix (we think lab/pitbull) a few months ago, and he acts like he's about as smart as a brick. I love him dearly, but the only thing he has learned is his name. Every once in awhile, he will sit, but it's...

  15. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    A breeder once told me a way to control mites is to get some insecticide strips (the kind you'd hang up for flying bugs) and leave 1" square on the screen tops, about one per two gallons. So, five squares for a ten gallon. I assume leaving these things, either whole or as squares, on the...
