Shih Tzu dog in grass.jpg
24 KB,
So my Shi Tzu bud is 14 now and I've been feeding him nice sliced ham/turkey etc. instead of dog food. I figure he's pretty old now so what the hell. Is this a good idea or does their body agree more with designated "dog food"? I haven't noticed him getting sick or anything.

Hey /an/ I like me some herps and psychedelics so I was thinking of getting a few bufo alviarus anyone know anything about them? I was thinking of making a semi-large terrarium with live plants in 1/4 water in 1/4 dry land in 1/4 and 1/4 with a hide of some sort but I don't know if this would be a working model or if it would make them totally radical toads. Any one know a semi-safe milking schedule and any way of doing it with the least stress

What up /an/,

Was wondering if anyone could share some insight as to what to do with my 18 yr old cat. She's a 6 lbs maine coon. She doesn't really eat her food anymore, just licks it. She passed a blood test to go under anesthesia for a dental cleaning and extractions but I worry about putting a cat that old and light under anesthesia.

Would the professional dental procedure help her eat more if successful? Or should I just try brushing her teeth and using holistic dental gels and spray?

There are liquid meal replacements for senior cat. Have you gave that a try?

And if her teeth are hurting her, taking the pain away will make her eat more.

Human life is essentially the extenuation through nature in order to achieve biological necessities.

This is why the best time to provide nutrition for muscle growth is right after working out, as our ancestors would constantly be hunting and expending energy doing so. It's already been proven that working out increases mood levels and lowers depression.

I could probably go on and on about how essentially every physical problem can be resolved by returning to a natural state. Things like depression, obesity, low self-esteem, disease, etc.

Not op, but arguably we arent *naturally* better off. If it werent for vaccination and hygiene, better medical understanding, urbanized areas would be cesspools of disease.

This is such a fucking stupid idea goddamn. Are you insinuating that all disease stems from anything not "natural"? What does " natural" even mean? Is the spear the primitive human in the OP pic unnatural? How can you make a meaningful distinction between natural and unnatural? Is it based on stuff we do? What is the base natural state? Would hunter gatherers who are starving because they can't catch any game still be in a better state than a well fed and healthy modern person?

Live in NYC. My lease originally had a No Pet's clause in it, but I'm not on lease anymore. Asked my landlord if he was okay with me getting a Chinchilla and he said that the building is under some no pet regulation with the city or something so he can't allow it.

I do have major depressive and anxiety disorders with possible borderline. From what I see, apparently I have the option of asking a psychiatrist to make me out an emotional support animal note to bypass the No Pets regulation.

Do any anons have experience with this sort of thing? I'm...

Well of course, learning basic survival skills is crucial. I'm just wondering why it seems to be less common in sea eagles, particularly Stellar's sea eagle and the bald eagle. I've been watching nest cams for a few years, and while I've seen some brutal sibling rivalry, it's never resulted in death. They've died of illness, or starvation, but never direct killing and cannibalism.

They seem to be more docile.

I grew up with heelers. So let me just say, Ha ha! You fucking sucker!

Heelers are stupid high energy to begin with. Even as adults, they're hell on wheels and need several jobs and responsibilities to stay sane. If they get bored (which happens easily), they will destroy everything you love.

You don't have that though. You have a very young heeler. I am seriously laughing at you right now. I am so sorry. You have at least a year of terror ahead of you.

Heelers are way smarter than most other dogs. Don't hit your dog. They remember. It wont...

When my dog was a puppy, sometimes he'd get stupidly crazy. Like he'd be awake for three hours, and then suddenly go insane trying to ruin anything he found, start getting the zoomies and tearing up the house, etc. I figured out it was because he was overstimulated/overtired. I'd pop him in the crate and cover it and stay quiet for a bit, and within thirty seconds he'd drop....

Can we have a shellfish thread? Do these exist?

I just went clamming today, in Northern Washington. Miserably wet, pouring rain, 30mph winds, but we took home over 320 clams in our group. While washing some off in a net sack I came across pic related.

I showed family and friends, and stuffed it in my jacket pocket. Long story short, when I brought it back to camp I discovered two tiny crabs (each less than 1/4in big) and a living barnacle took refuge inside/on it.

Here are my questions:
What species crabs are they?
How big do they get?
Can I keep...

There are tiny little crabs in the Puget Sound that look like cold water hermit crabs. They're super adorable. Maybe that's what you found?

When I was living on a boat, I kept one of those tiny, adorable shore crabs and a sea anemone as pets. I would give them high and low tide every day and feed them whatever I was eating. They lived pretty well and seemed healthy. Of course, I was living on a boat so I was surrounded by sea water to give them fresh water and movement every day. Living on the boat made their care super easy tier.

So we have a 3 years old male, neutered, cat. My sister brough a 3 months female kitten.
Now Old cat dosn't like anything, he dosn't like his old sleeping places anymore because New kitten has been there and now he hangs on places where New kitten can reach like over the fridge or the window's edges.
Overall they don't get well together, every time they see each other New kitten looks to play and old cat just beats her up yet new kitten still seek to play with him after that.

I feel really bad for Old cat, what can I do so he feel comfortable at home again?
