Not an expert, but i'd say he's got some lab, maybe even some pit. He looks like he's got the feet legs and body of a pit, skull and face of a lab.

Someone help me pick out an exotic mammal when I move to Oregon soon, I'm having trouble weighing my options.
Preferably something that is decent enough on a leash that would enjoy going on walks and whatnot. (No, not in populated areas) I'd also prefer something that doesn't have an absolute fuckload of energy. Something able to be kept loose in a house most of the time is a bonus, but not a necessity.

Right now I'm looking at crested (or north american) porcupines. Also playing around with the idea of a bird, but don't want a parrot. if anyone...

One of these chaps, fairly large, is somewhere in my room as of last night. Pretty sure its a male huntsman, pic attached looked like it.
How practical and how easy would it be to make it my pet?
How do I go around luring it into some kind of enclosure without hurting it or me?
Would it eventually become friendly to me?

So 1000$ in xrays and ultra sounds and 500$ in blood tests... my cat comes up a clean bill of health.

She has been losing weight rapidly for a while, doesnt eat anything no matter what I try, seems nauseous and out of it sometimes. She old, 15.

Basically - has anyone had something like this happen even when tests say shes fine?What was the end result? I'm at a loss. I thought it was CKD but my vet said only one of her kidneys is with premature signs - its not enough to effect.

Thats trash mentality tho
>>
Sorry OP, I have to agree with the first response. She's been pretty thoroughly checked out by the sound of it, but sadly at that age sometimes a vet cannot identify one thing that is clearly wrong and can be diagnosed and treated, it's just the accumulated effects of old age and everything wearing down at once. It's not trashy to switch to palliative care for a 15 year old cat once you've eliminated conditions that can be treated, there's no cure-all medication or treatment that will fix something that cannot be diagnosed and is likely not reversible. It sounds like your cat is dying and while it's not unheard of at all for an elderly pet to suddenly pick up and be fine for a few more weeks or months before declining again, there is very little you can do to shape that path besides making them comfortable and trying to tempt them with food and treats.

What causes some dogs to be the "pick of the litter" and be born larger than other dogs?
11 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

Temperament is highly hereditary. Any animal breeder can tell you how important it is to breed for temperament. There will be a wide variance in offspring but overall they'll be better than a random coupling. You can see this also in experiments such as the Russian fox experiments when fearful or aggressive animals were culled and quickly what remained became friendly and domestic.

You may wonder why nonetheless there will still be more timid animals in a litter of two good temperaments but that's easily accounted for by recessive genes. So kind of roulette.

Genetics, hormones, nutrition on fetal development, etc. Pregnancy takes a toll on a mother. It's a lot of work for the body and when you have a litter, thats more to go around. Runts get the shit end of the stick, be it from genetics or didn't get enough of what they needed in womb. Such as in dogs, their womb isn't circular like humans but more of a Y shape. Runts usually form the farthest away from the rest of the litter. It's possible the 'pick of the litter' is closer, but I'm just guessing.

The largest of the litter does not always...

So one of my dogs(70 pounds) died within the last 12 hours, this morning she was happy, started throwing up and now is dead. Went to the vet early on.

The vet really doesn't know except for highly likely to be poison(desu I think the person was kind of incompetent but this was by far the richest hospital in town).

This means she had to be poisoned in our yard.

It also means that the poison had to be highly toxic. She would to have eaten 10 squares or more of rat poison. - not accidental. I think it was something more toxic then that though.

My dog (greyhound) got poisoned before. I let her out for the night and she went into the bedroom to sleep. About an hour later I heard her crashing down the hallway, walking like she was drunk and shaking. This was Christmas night so to the emergency vet we went. When we got there she threw up mightily and kept trying to even when she was empty. The vet sent me home to check the backyard for anything that she may have gotten into. The only thing I found was a frozen piece of meat with what looked like peas in it....
