    I've looked around the boards and haven't seen any topics regarding this yet, but bear with me if it's been discussed already. I got two 7 week old pups (one boy, one girl) a few days ago that I kept in a small 3 story cage, and everything was great until the male started to get his feet stuck...

    I recently purchased a young prairie dog from a pet store with a pretty bad case of malocclusion. I'm a veterinary technician student and I've always wanted one as a pet, so I figured who better to take care of the poor thing, right? I've clipped her teeth down once so far but it is such a...

    My daughter has had 2 prairie dogs for about 4 months. They have chewed through 3 cages, 2 of which were said to be chew proof. She has a lot of chew toys in their cage, a wheel, plenty of food and burrowing material. She takes them out to play when she comes home from work. Does anyone have a...

    I searched the Internet for Prairie Dog information (and found some...) because a little while ago I stepped onto my patio and there was this tiny Prairie Dog trying to make it's way around the concrete floor. It can't be more than a few days old. It's eyes are mostly closed and it is 2.5 inches...

    I've heard a rumor that there is a petition going around to compell the FDA to lift the restrictions on prairie dogs as pets (including the selling and transportation of them). Can anyone tell me if there is such a petition and where I can sign it? If there isn't, how can we get one started...

  19. Degu Discussion
    Hi all, it's been a while since I've posted. It's been busy. At any rate, there's only one store nearby where I can get my goos the right food (without molasses), and I can get it in bulk at a good price. So I headed over there and picked up a few things. As I was checking out, the girl asked...

    Do you have a pet Prairie Dog in Colorado (US) that we could visit just once? I have a friend in Colorado who is nuts about Prairie Dogs. As a surprise, I have planned a whole day of PD fun on or around December 7, 2007. I heard PDs are banned from sales and she can't really have one because of...
