Anny veterinarian here? This guy has lots of dandruff (small dry and white kind) and little crusts all over his body (there isnt that much of them but they are all over his body not in one place) with i'm pretty sure aren't result of scratching but he is quite itch all over the place especially on the back when someone touch him
>>2094607 The dog doesn't look well cared for. The answer is to first put it on a high quality dog food and bath it with oatmeal shampoo as suggested, once a month. If the problem persists you should take the dog in to consider allergies. Though, it looks and sounds like a grooming and nutrients problem.

My goilfriend has a dog with some sort of skin problem, she uses pic related on him. She also uses it on her own skin when she has a skin injury that she doesn't want to get infected.
My question is just HOW BAD an idea... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What makes a kitty cat pee blood? Do some cats just do this with no issue? My cat has done it off and on, and I have had him treated. But he seems to have nothing wrong, I just give him some special CATCH ALL urinary problem food and Boom he's better.
I figured something like peeing blood would be a bigger issue, and my google searches would agree. The vet agreed too, but he never has any worse issues.
I live in the sticks though, and this is a simple country vet.
So do some cats just pee blood sometimes like it's no biggie? Boy cat by the way,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Vet student here. Blood in the cat's urine is NOT normal. Without any further diagnostics, I couldn't really say exactly what is wrong, but what I would say is that cats often present with urinary crystals and this COULD be the case here.
I would be tempted to go find another vet/go back to your vet, get some diagnostics done (e.g a urine analysis) to rule out an infection and discuss renal diets on a permanent basis to see if that would help at all.

>>2093527 there are hundreds of stories like this. birds are dumb anyways. my conure always wants to rub her cloaca on me and its disgusting. this morning i opened her cage and she flew at my face biting the shit out of my neck, screaming, and grinding her cloaca on me leaving this nasty slime trail. why did i ever agree to take this bird. it was a rescue.
maybe i give it to OP and he can give it the whisper of death for me like he did to his other victims. regular dr kevorkian over here.

These things are so, so cheap. I know because I've had to sell a few Exo Terra setups. You're talking $400 in cage/decor/heat/etc for $50.
It's a great sham of the pet trade. This stuff is overpriced like crazy. Lighting and radiant heat panels are about the things that have realistic new/resale prices. I am staring at 2 PVC cages (one $500, and one $350) here in my living room. I'll be lucky to get $75 for either of them. Exo Terra cages - let's say 18x12x24, that's a $200 cage - $30 or so used.

Thanks, I thought about buying used as the prices for new cages etc. Are horrendous. Since snakes also need heat lamps that's going to get hard. I'm paying already 2 bulbs with combined ~ 80 watts and wouldn't want to pay electric bills for an additional pair.
Thinking of getting another dog in year or so. I have ptsd and anxiety, so the idea of having one sent for some service dog training on top of self training has crossed my mind. I'm fairly experienced with dogs and training. I do a lot of hiking, camping, and general /out/ stuff. I've considered a few breeds, but haven't decided. I'd be open to others too.

I'm no expert, but try to mimic the conditions you've seen it occurring in in the wild (most likely humid and shaded). Maybe try to contact a mycologist or something to identify it. You'll want a growth medium for it, see if you can get hold of some agar gel (you may be able to make a substitute in the kitchen at home) and a petri dish. Make mazes out of card and shit in the petri dish, watch it navigate them and stuff.Keep the petri dish closed to retain humidity and prevent the colony from spilling over, just use an elastic band or something. Not sure how anoxic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Since my dog made the complete switch from puppy to dog food, he's only been going once a day. We did a gradual switch, and all during the gradual switch, he pooped 3-4 times a day, which has been the normal routine. Once we got to 100% adult food, he started only going once--in the morning. One small, firm, normal turd, and a little plop of softer turds.
He's not acting constipated (hunching over and coming up with nothing), not acting panicked to go, not lethargic, has the same energy/temperament as normal, eating... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2095016 interesting little tidbit for you: in America, the names of insects are deliberately separate or conjoined based on this fact. Honey bees ARE bees, so its two words. Dragonflies are not flies, so it is one word. House flies, Dobsonflies, etc all follow this rule. In Europe they don't give a shit so its honeybees and whatnot.
>inb4 some butthurt european starts rambling about Celsius or Kinder eggs because they take this as a personal attack on their way of life
