Make your own decisions in life bro, don't make every decision based off someone else's opinions.

Just research a bit so you know what you're getting into with the breed. You could have this dog for the next 10-20 years, make sure it's the one you really want.

you can

you're just a cunt if your reason for owning a dog is because it looks cool AND you don't learn how to take care of it properly after you make your stupid impulse purchase

Do it faggot

My parents recently found a bird and decided to keep it with us. We already have a dog, one who likes to chase birds and squirrels all the time, no doubt if he caught one he would kill it. Because of this, and because my parents are older and tend to be well... lazy, they bought the bird a tiny cage, gave it some food and water and let it live like that indefinitely. They interact with it for about 30 seconds at a time, maybe 2 or 3 times a day and other than that, ignore it completely.

When I come home, I see that the bird is extremely lonely and sad. It has absolutely...

Unless your dog is a rabid pitbull he won't kill it as long as you supervise the bird when he gets out.
Also it's sad because it's alone all day,get him a companion.

My dog is actually pretty small, but he isn't very friendly with most other animals. Would it be possible to let the bird out for hours at a time with my dog around the house?

I assume he will just stay around the family, I'm just afraid my dog might try to hurt him. Is there any specific way to train him to not hunt the little guy?

My parents, after I pestered them for a long time, have bought him a very large cage with lots of toys, and they are also open to getting another one (same breed,...

I just put generic frontline on my about 3 hours ago...pet armour is what it's called i think. She's drooling at the mouth. I called the vet, he said to bathe her. I don't know how to do it, she hates water. Will washing her with a wash rag work? I need to get this off of her. Vet said if she's still
Drooling tomorrow to bring her in for a steroid shot.

I'm at a compete loss. She's never had a problem with topical flea meds before. I'm also confused because it's waterproof stuff, how the fuck is bathing her gonna get this off?...

hey dudes. I'm an idiot, and a dog (puppy I believe) has presented himself to me. as in, I was mowing my yard one day, and he just came running to me.

I knocked door to door a few doors down in a good radius, nobody claimed it. he seems to have imprinted on me pretty good now, seeing how he has stayed in my front yard for 2 days now. I might keep it, at least until someone comes forward.

my question is, what breed is it?

This.
If he has a chip, a vet'll find it and call the owners.
Also if you keep it you'll need to give him a check up.

Vets are shit at figuring breeds out anyway.

Presume that animals feel little or no loneliness when wild.

Is it cruel to domesticate animals and then stop treating them as pets, ignoring them most of the day?

What is worse? That an animal feels little loneliness and has a short life, or that it has loneliness granted to it by affection from a human who takes control of its food and water, and then subsequently makes it lonely by not caring for it anything as it once did, spending less time with it?

Isn't it strange that it is human affection, the drive to selflessly cause pleasure to something...

I think it must be more than that. He seems to revel in it daily. He will stand there and let us pat his butt hard for minutes on end.

He also rubs that area under benches and stuff and does a kind of "song and dance" while doing it. Do dogs have some sort of gland there?

According to her, the cage looked dirty and she wanted him to take a breath of fresh air outside.

This is all taking on account that I warned them that this could happen and that should they take him out his cage, never leave him alone. But they just didn't listen.

That's ridiculous. A bird of prey could have swooped down and gotten him, too. Small pets have no business being outside unless they're in a hutch.

My condolences, hope you eventually end up in a living situation where nobody will do stupid shit to your pets.

There is something wrong with my cat. he other day I noticed she was coughing and retching as if she had a hairball, this happens every so often because she is very fluffy but usually it passes and does not affect anything else.

She has no voice, her meow is low and raspy, as is her purring, throat noises and when she tried to hiss at my new kitten it was the same. It has been like this the last few days along with the retching, she has so far brought nothing up.
Other than this she has been fine and acting normal. She has been grooming, eating, drinking, using the...

I'm sure somebody else will come along and be able to give better advice than me, I'm not an expert myself, but if i were you I would just keep making sure she's eating, drinking, and using the bathroom normally until you can bring her to a vet. It could be nothing but it's worth having her checked out.

Hey /an/, me and my gf recently got two kittens.

It will be NY eve in a bit more than a week and I hadn't considered that they would freak out about the fireworks.

I saw online that you can acclimate cats to the sound of firework but is +- 9 days enough?

Does anybody have experiences or tips?

Honestly, I'd just put them in a safe, quiet room with hiding places and let them freak out if they want- you only get fireworks once or twice a year, it's not really worth acclimatising them year-round imo. Cats usually just want to hide in a safe cosy spot if they don't like something, it may not be a great night for them but it won't kill them.
>>
>>2021064
We live in a city appartment, not a lot of room to create a good safe space. Also people are allowed to use fireworks in my country so it'll be a complete day of noise.

The kittens have never experienced the anxiety of fireworks I'd thought I'd learn them it's allright before they're afraid of it. I'll just try what I can before NYE, not too much trouble.

Never had cats before , I assume they'd spray to mark territory at the time that they are maturing,I know neuturing stop that ,mine are still kittens , and I've had some people tell me that if they're brothers and live indoors then they won't spray. Thoughts ?

I kinda don't want to neuter them if it's not necessary, I feel like one of them is going to be at least 15 pounds as an adult and I know if he's neutered then he won't be as big

There is no reason not to neuter. If you wait until after they start spraying if can be difficult to get them to stop.

>>2020943
Neutering has little effect on the adult size of a kitten. If you want a large kitten, get a purebred from a good breeder. There are several breeds that get large.
