Any dog owners here that have had a dog with swollen prostate? Vet says it's common for older dogs and he should be neutered, but I don't like the idea of castrating my pet. Anyone have had this issue? What did you do? Should I neuter my dog?
pic is how my dog will look once neutered, please think kindly about it.
>>2094831 >you're forcing your dog to suffer! You are a fucking retard! >stomp the dog I'm not forcing him to suffer, I discovered the symptoms just yesterday and today I went to the vet. If castration is the only way I'll do it, but I wanted some other opinions that's why I came here. Also, plenty of vets don't recommend early castration, and my dog didn't have any problems until recently.
Picture not related, but last week in the milking parlour we had number 410 decide to pop back to see us whilst we were milking. She stood in front of the stairs that leads down to the clusters and when I went over to move her she proceeded to lick my face- all she wanted was a good head rub and she was on her way!
Pick: one of the four cows we have at Uni, I often spend my lunch hour with picture related, she's 15 now and a big gentle giant.
I got this tank off a friend about a week ago. It is my first tank.
I have a tetra pf 10 filter an aqua coulture bubbler and a heater that keeps my water between 72°F and 74°F. I used start right both times and let the set up run for roughly 5 hours prior befor adding my fish each time since start right apparently works quickly/instantly and i feed the fish tetra brand goldfish food 2x a day.
Bought my first 9 fish from walmart (8 gold fish 1 sucker fish) 1/2 died over night. Went to walmart had them replaced. Put them in tank too. All... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2094484 Learn about nitrate cycle, add fish slowly, starting with the wussiest. Tap water kills your life-sustaining bacteria, with the chlorine.
Take a little bit of piss, just like a soda-cap full, and then add it to your water. You have at least a week to wait and research your new purchases. No ten gallon can make 9 fish happy. You can'tr have One goldfish in that tank. They have no stomach so they poop ammonia like crazy.
Goldfish are really pond fish. Get tetras or platies or guppies or something.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I planted pic related in my high-school botany class, and recently came to find out that my stepmom took care of it for the last 5 years. She was nice enough to give it back to me, but since she had it in the same pot as a much bigger plant, it required repotting. I got some cactus soil and have been letting it be for a few days to take to its new environment, but recently the "stem" and base of some of the upper leaves have turned a bit red as you can see in the picture. I'm wondering if maybe the soil was too moist and it's over watered? my Google... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've had this pup for a year and a half. We are 100% sure that she's part pit (according to vets and everyone we ask), part something. The question is, what is the other something? She's very energetic, fast, loves to run and play. She likes to stay with us, will run ahead, then come back and check in, run behind, then zoom back past us (whenever off-leash either hiking or dog park). Very smart and learns quickly. I first thought part border collie due to color, intelligence, and sticking close to us tendencies, but now thinking maybe just part whippet.
I don't come here ever but I have a problem. A cat and rat problem.
I had a female cat, who gave birth to kitties around 5 months ago. The kitties grew. But one of the kitties is literally a hunting god. Birds, rats, you name it.
The problem is, I live with my mothers and my sisters, and while I consider the kitty a living legend, they are sick of him. They are sick of every morning finding either a dead bird or a dead mouse. He doesn't even eats them or anything, just hunts them for fun.
Just today, he brought 3 rats, and my... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I recently adopted a dog that has passed hands a few times. She was originally adopted by my friend's grandpa, but he died a few years ago.
My friend took care of the dog out of love for his grandpa, but isn't really a dog person. I lived with him and the dog for a few years, and we both decided it would be best if the dog stays with me when I move out.
My problem is that I am concerned about the microchip. I know she is microchipped, but the info is going to be for a dead guy that I don't know anything about. I don't even know... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2094092 No, don't come to a board you don't frequent and post an easily answered question in its own thread. People do this all day on /an/, so are you confused why it upsets the few of us who are regulars here?
alrighty /an/, Im probably going to catch a lot of flak over this, but is there any reason I should have the vet vacinate my dog over me doing it?
State law says I have to have the rabies shot administered by a vet, but nothing else. I was looking in the supply catalog from valleyvet and stumbled across the dog vaccines and they are significantly cheaper than the vet, as well as saving me an hour drive each way.
I've raised livestock all my life, so giving shots is something I'm fine with and experienced at. what does /an/ think about vaccinating your pets yourself?
I have always given my dog heartworm pills because we live right next to a swamp. The old timers around here laugh at me saying im wasting my money because its an outside dog and the heart worm pills wear off eventually and my dog will still get them.
Is there any truth to heartworm medicine (im giving her sentinel currently) being ineffective for outdoor dogs with heavy mosquito exposure?
>>2094021 >The old timers around here laugh at me saying im wasting my money because its an outside dog and the heart worm pills wear off eventually and my dog will still get them.
...yeah they wear off in a month that's why it's a monthly pill.
Always remember that old timers are good at knowing how to do things, they aren't good at knowing things. They absolutely fucking suck ass at knowing things because they aren't from a data-driven age, they're from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
