>>2053857 If that was my dog I'd keep telling him to stop that and train him to lie normally or he'll get fucked up joints. My dad had a Belgian shepherd who would lie with his back legs spread at the hips but his feet tucked together under his tail. The vet said his hips were fine but advised us to correct the dog's behavior or he might develop spinal trouble. We tried but we couldn't watch the dog 24/7 and he would sneak this madness into his life whenever he could. 7 years later the dog was paralyzed and incontinent.
At which point do carbohydrates become a problem in a dog's diet?
Can one use something like corn flakes as treats?
Pic related - I don't own dogs (or even like them in general) but this fucker acts like a nobleman all the time, and as such I feel the need to care. However considering he is really tiny I get worried that even small starchy/sugary treats may cause him trouble. (I'm not the one giving him treats btw)
Is this worry unfounded and / or exaggerated? What is the worst that could happen? Bad breath? Liver cancer?
So I've mentioned this little bugger before, and I'm in a bit of a bind with her. She adopted us after her owner died, but being students we aren't in the best position to keep her. Our current landlord has been kind enough to let us keep her, however we'll be moving later this year and taking her is out of the question. Our new landlord will not allow pets, plain and simple. We've been looking for shelters and rescues, but at 17 they have all so far turned her down due to her age, and have even been advised to put her down. Not even the RSPCA will take...

Guarantee someone will take her in within a few days. (Advice: scan their profiles first to judge if they'd even be good pet owners. Usually you can tell.)
Why do people think it's okay to harass wild animals?
I used to enjoy this show called "Gator Boys". This crew of experienced alligator wranglers would go and remove alligators from peoples' backyards.
I thought that was a great thing, because otherwise the alligator could end up hurting someone. I'd imagine it might have to be shot to prevent that, but instead they catch and relocate them. What a great idea, I thought.
But then they had an episode where they have a crippled veteran wrestle an alligator.
I just have to ask--why?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So, I take care of pets for other people. The owners are the ones who buy whatever food it is they think the animal needs. Any health issues are paid for and done by vets. Vet checkups are once a month.
So, one client has 3 dogs. He doesn't buy the canned dog food (Gravy Train brand only) regularly enough, so I call him and ask if I may feed her dogs some of the extra cans of cat food. He agrees. 3 days later, the dogs are still on the diet of canned cat food:
They have improved mobility. The want to play constantly. They run around like loons and bark at... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
There is a list of foods you should not feed your cat or dog due to the way their bodies handle certain chemicals in said food. If you can just as easily not feed your animals those foods, there's no point in making a fuss over it and just not feed those foods.
