A tablespoon of regular dirt underneath a gravel bed, underneath sand is the best soil medium, add a couple steel nails too.
Add plants, and then don't add fish indiscriminately. Get dwarf crayfish instead. also if you can bury your airstone in the sand, like inside a sponge, underneath a big rock, you'll get better plant health. Those things have bad airflow and waterflow and you can make something just as pretty with a huge jar and a bright led bulb lamp in your room.
Hey /an/, I'm moving into my bf's apartment soon with my cat. He just moved in last week himself, and I'm wondering if there's any precautions I should take about bringing in a cat where other cats were previously. The previous owner had two cats that lived both indoors and outdoors on the porch, and I'm worried about ticks or bugs or things that might be lingering. Should I spray for bugs? How should I do it? Should I take my cat to the vet again before we move in for updated shots?
As someone who just moved into a place where there were previous animals, I wish I would have had the carpets steam cleaned. Like super deep steam cleaned. The carpets were disgusting and the thing I rented wasn't good enough. It made due but I had to go over it like twice.
If you are paranoid about fleas and ticks, maybe hire an exterminator to do a bug bomb and fumigate the house. Will kill everything. There is also special spray you can get for fleas and ticks for the back as well.
And your cats should always be up to date on their shots.
This bird has been living in my neighbourhood for 3 years now, coming when it is summer and leaving when it is winter. Sorry for the shit quality, but what kind of a bird is it? A hawk? Looks too small to me. Can you tell its age? Sex? How long do they live?
It perchen in front of my window and tore what appeared to be a mouse to pieces. It left, and there doesn't seem to be any mouse remnants left except some blood stains. Should I be concerned about disease or will it be fine?
I have a 7 year old min pin. She's as sweet as can be and well-behaved. However, when I or anyone else tries to hold her paw in order to trim her nails, she flips out and starts fighting to get away. She hates having her paws messed with. No matter if I'm trying to clip her nails or wear them down with a nail file, she tries to pull away; I try to hold onto her, but she's got such tiny delicate paws that I can't hold on/pull back too much without fearing that I'm gonna hurt her.
You need to train her to like it. Do you use a clicker? Start slowly, so...

>>2160206 My mother used to have to wrangle my grandmother's dachshund like that to clip her nails.
>>2160279 She's never been trained before, but I'll try that. Question, though: can pets substitute treats? I know treats probably work best, but she's already a little overweight (we're working on it) and I don't want her to get too chunky off of treats.
Found two baby hares just now next to a third dead one plus their dead mother. Took those two fuckers home and checked what to do. According to the law where i live, you are not allowed to keep injured or abandoned animals for longer than 48 hours and need to contact a shelter. I will do that in the morning but they are still young enough to still suckle and i am not sure they will survive the night. What i didn't find was answer on what to feed them. I do have baby formula at home that contains mostly wheat and grains.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I got my dog's anal glands expressed at the vet's last month. The tech who did it told me they were "extremely full".
Well fast forward to today, and I've bee noticing him whimpering to go outside a lot, doing some scooting, and licking at his butt a lot. So maybe he needs them expressed again. I take him to the vet, and the tech this time said the glands were incredibly full, expressing them caused him pain, and the discharge was "chunky". They suggested that I may need to have them expressed every two weeks.
Is this fucking... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2159968 My foster dog had somewhat chunky glands that need to be expressed. Not that often, but it is not unheard of. If your dog isn't difficult, see if you can ask the vet to show you how to do it so you can do it yourself.
I just brought my dog to the vet to get it done because fuck that.
My 14 year old dog just had his first seizures a few days ago and was given phenobarbital for it. In case you weren't aware, pheno causes loss of control in animals' rear legs (ataxia). My mom freaked and asked the vet to change it to keppra. So, while the pheno wears off, my dog still can't walk right and he's depressed and pitiful. How can I help him? Special grippy booties?
Hi guys my hamster randomly died. Any causes? She had fresh water, food, I use aspen bedding, she lived in a bin cage, had an eight inch wheel (solid not wire) and was a dwarf hamster. My guess is genetics. She was eight weeks old according to the pet shop and I had her for a bit more than a month. Also no symptoms of anything just dead.
Possibly parasites or some underlying sickness that struck hard and fast. Genetics could also be why. Do you have a cat or dog? Something may have scared her during the night and a heart attack could have done her in.
Fortunately I don't have to deal with any dead hamsters in the pet store where I work because we get them from a local breeder who takes really good care of them and manages his genetics properly. If you get another one, maybe trying purchasing it from somebody who breeds them or buying from a store who gets them from somebody like that. Places that... Comment too long.
