  1. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I got this hamster from Petsmart today (I know.. I didn't need another one...) and he's has serious deformaties. His eyes bulge and his face is just weird looking. The problem is that he doesn't have any teeth. They're little nubs. He obviously can't eat lab block and has probably been...
  2. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    once i picked up a teddy bear hamster from a pet shop and the teddy bear hamster would just sit in my hand, but when i picked up another hamster, like a dwarf, those hamsters were more active? are teddy bears really more relaxed than other hamsters?
  3. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I have been defending PetCo and Petsmart because I think they are two of the few pet stores that care about their animals. Yesterday, however, I went into Petco and their poor gerbils looked so miserable! And to top that off they had the wrong wheel in the gerbil cage. Well needless to say I...
  4. Degu Discussion
    I'm in turmoil over this one, and could really do with some advice! A year ago, Rummy got a cold and got very wheezy, and we managed to trat him with antibiotics and he was fine. Since then, he's been a bit szeezy and i've doen loads to try and figure out what it could be, including looking at...
  5. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I have a dwarf hamster named Roxy, and i was wondering how long they live. some people say: 1-2 years some people say: 2-3 years the pet shop said up to 5 years, but what is the average lifespan of a dwarf hamster, if you take good care of it?
  6. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I might be ending up with a rescued hamster or two soon due to someone being real stupid. Okay, my sister's ex friend recently contacted her and said she has 40 hamsters.Well she bought a hamster from the pet store and it was pregnant.She never seperated them and then all of the females got...
  7. Chinchilla Discussion
    I don't have a chin...but a friend of mine does.Anyway she was telling me that she don't handle him much because he doesn't like it...I don't think that she really tamed it properly, as she was always "busy doing other stuff".Just recently she mentioned she wanted to find a new home for it...

  10. Degu Discussion
    I've read that willow isn't safe for degus (causes respiratory problems), but my local pets at home is selling "Willow Stix" made by Happypet.co.uk, in the small animal section. Is it safe or not? I'd love for my degus to have something else to chew on, but rummy has a chest infection at the...
  11. Pet Health Concerns
    It's 3:30am right now and I'm up crying and freaking out because one of my degus seems to have caught my cold. I took as many precautions as I could. The degus had to stay in my room (literally nowhere else in the house they could go, plus every other member of my family was sick as well) so I...
  12. Turtles & Tortoises
    Almost everything I have read says that humidity should be kept low and not to moist. This was also stated at the reptile/exotic pet shop I purchased the Russian tort. However, I found one group, I think recommended by someone here, that said to keep things moist... so what should it be at...
  13. Turtles & Tortoises
    Thank you everyone. I couldn't find a adoption in my area but I did go to a pet shop that specializes in Exotics and Reptiles (www.animal-dreams.com). I got a Russian Tortoise hatchling, aprox 4-6wks. He is doing great so far. I have him in a large "critter cage" right now. I'm using a...

  15. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Would it be okay to buy a rat at a pet store? I searched and searched for rat breeders in the area and couldn't find any. I live in maryland, and I searched PA WV and VA. I'm not sure whether I want boys or girls. Probably girls. When I was at petsmart they had 3 different kinds of...
  16. Degu Discussion
    Right, I'm completely out of ideas on this one. I'm welcome to suggestions! For a few months now, Raisin has seemed a little bit down. I first thought that this was due to them being a dark corner in our previously cold, damp house which we've now moved out of. He's perked up a bit but still...
  17. Degu Discussion
    I'm over in france at the minute, and went shopping today in a french pet shop where i wanted to buy Rum, Raisin and Jerry a present! I went to this shop and ended up quite upset, as they unexpectedly had NINE degus in there. They were all quite young, males and females in together kept in a...
  18. Chinchilla Discussion
    I am presently introducing a female chin "Lexi" to my male "Chi Chi", which is new for me....Chi Chi is a young bachelor! They did their familiarity time in seperate cages as commonly advised. Today I put them in the playroom (bathroom) with me together to play. Well, at first Lexi was a little...
