  1. Chinchilla Discussion
    I bought a chinchilla saturday morning and that night he began to have diarrhea. I am using the same food the pet store sold me where i bought him. Oxbow pellets and hay. He seems to be drinking and eating okay and he is very active. What should i do? Is it to soon to take him to the vet?
  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    So I don’t know if you guys remember me, but I posted pictures a couple months back of my two rats, Juno and Layla. They’re six months old now. So I had quite a scare this morning when I peeked into Juno and Layla’s cage and saw blood in their food dish. I took them both out of the hammock, and...
  3. Dogs
    I have a 4 1/2 month old DDB that has started throwing up and eating VERY little! She also has red bumps on her stomach. I am a new DDB owner, so I don't know much about what could be wrong with her. We took her to the vet last night and they gave us a pill to help with her digestive tract but...
  4. Cats
    I wish I had a camera but then you guys might kill me for gross pics. So a friend found a matted bundle of mats in some mud and guess what...SHES PREGNANT!! On top of that, she looks to have really bad teeth. I have no idea what happened to her but she looks terrible. So I'm hoping to...
  5. Degu Discussion
    What is up with degu and penis problems? I am really scared….:( We had two boys last year, and then in the end of October one of them got an infection on his penis. At first it was just big and red and to be honest, I thought he was in heat, as this is the first degu we have owned. After...

  9. Degu Discussion
    Hey guys, My degu got sick and is sneezy with a watery nose (I guess it's watery, never looked in at the nostrils before). Basically sneezes very very often and sometimes i can hear/feel her vibrating breathing heavily - sounds like mucous in the trachea... I'm gonna phone all vets nearby...

  11. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    this morning my rat started making this light squeaking. His name is Melvin, he is usually a very quiet rat, never really makes any noise at all. So this concerned me and I went to check on him. he is moving quite slowly and is shuddering a bit. He looks like he wants to throw up. The...
  12. Cats
    Hello! My cat is very sick. About two and a half weeks ago I took her to the vet because her mouth was bleeding quite badly, and it turned out that she had some serious gum inflammation. The doctor prescribed Clinsol, which made my cat very sick (vomiting). She has been off the medication for...

    10 days ago, we found 2 5-6week old (give or take they were around 10-12lbs each) german shepherd puppies dumped on the side of our country road. I don't know how long they were there on the side of the road in the ditch's. I fed them canned dog food the first night and they perked right up and...

  16. Degu Discussion
    I've been caring for my friend's degus for the past 4 days while he is away. They are all pretty terrified of me, so I didn't find it too unusual that one of them was huddled inside of a hanging pouch every time I went to check on them. I gently poked her each time to make sure she was still...
  17. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    My rat Minnie has been bleeding from her left ear lately. At first I thought she had maybe scratched it on something, and didn't pay it much attention. But now there is more blood coming out of the ear, and a sizable lump on her head in front of the ear (between the eye and the ear). I'm afraid...
  18. Degu Discussion
    My degu is not feeling well today I noticed. Seems pretty well overnight whatever he has because yesterday he was running around like normal and today is kind of sluggish,cold,fur ruffled and lethargic. I only feed them Degu food from Petco and for water they get spring water. I haven't been...
  19. Lizards
    I recently got an iguana from a friend at work. I asked him how well he was taking care of him. He told me he had him in a 55 gallon tank. He kept him by a window for sunning. I found out he didnt have a uvb bulb on him. He said he thought the sun would take care of that. I informed him...
  20. Amphibians
    Does anyone know of anything that could cause this? He's really active and eating extremely well so I'm confused. We take our parameters regularly and everything is fine as of now. Any help would be great!
