Hey peeps, how many of you have a dog with a Jittery lower jaw? I've heard there are hundreds of causes for it.

My 6 year old Siberian recently started doing it last night after 3 days of being cured of a gastrointestinal infection. First time ever he's done it.

My Yorkie does it when she's excited, like after she's been fighting someone's feet.

My dog just got a tooth out on Friday and the next night she was sitting down next to me and her lower jaw started to shake, I thought it might have been something to do with the discomfort she was feeling from the operation, after looking into it, I found that cracked teeth or mouth pain can be the cause of this. Maybe just have a check in his mouth just incase.

>>1989788

Noted, I had a quick look at his mouth, and did find one of his molars looks darker than the rest of his teeth.

Vet is not in house, but I have some meds as I am a vet student, so I gave him a painkiller for starters, hopefully if he stops doing it for a while it may mean he is having tooth problems and a visit to the Vet will be in store tomorrow.

If he keeps doing it, in spite of the dosage it may be a neuro thing, lets hope not.

If all the animals you ever killed (bugs included) came back all at once to seek their revenge, how fuct would you be?

I've hit 3 stray dogs and 1 deer while driving at night

Other than take it to a vet and spend a fortune. Just leave it alone for a day and if its not better call animal control to come pick it up

If you have any peanuts, try giving it a few, might make it peck up a bit. Give it a little bowl of water too. If you really don't want to keep it, yeah, I guess you'll have to call animal control.

I live in a studio apartment.
My neighbor lives in an apartment below mine. We live right across the street from a park the size of a golf course.

When my neighbor leaves for work, he just lets his cat outside. Cat chills and plays, and socializes with other cats. Hangs out all day.

When he comes home, the cat is eager to see him, and runs inside with him.

Thoughts on this /an/? He has a collar on his cat, but seems pretty nonchalant about just leaving it to it's own devices outside all day.

I was going to adopt a cat and do the same. Is...

Do you know why they rejected you? That might help.

You could try other shelters/rescue groups. Or look on craigslist--often times people having to give their dog away for one reason or another will advertise there. You can even find tons of "free puppy" ads from people who had accidental litters.

Hey /an/. I'm working on a school project that is analyzing the feasibility of a service that helps reduce the euthanasia rate of animals in shelters. I am NOT selling anything or trying to market this service, I just need feedback on this idea and see if it's something we can take forward. Also, feel free to leave comments in this thread. Pic unrelated.

You want to lower the rate of euthanasia in shelters? Get people to keep their fucking animals in their god damned houses and stop keeping pets they can't fucking manage.

i live in chile and it breaks my heart seeing packs of hungry suffering dogs roaming around town.

shelters are a service to society and they need to euthanise animals to keep the population under control. Theres no worse fate for the dog than living in hunger and suffering on the streets, just so a few soft humans dont have to face the harshness of population control.

I live in Ontario, and am moving soon. Because of the layout and set up of my next home I'd really like to do a few European mounts (deer, a ram or sheep, perhaps a pig or horse). But, I'm having a really hard time obtaining them because apparently they need to be licensed. I know when I was a kid my uncles, who were native, and now deceased would make them by the dozen to sell to locals. I even helped in the boil and bleaching process. Does anyone know where I should start looking? I just don't want to pay $600 + shipping on something I use to make free as a...

Not really.
I don't want them for bragging rights. I don't even have many people besides family. It's just a farm house, and I want to go more rustic with some European mounts. Not like I want an over kill of them either. Better use for them and more respectful to that animal then simply going into the trash

Those are almost always going to have a steep price unless you get the animal yourself and set up the mount yourself. You could try second hand stores or other such places online.

Hey /an/, /fa/ here,

Can somebody recommend me a couple of lizards/chamelons that aren't an insectivores? I did a little research but everywhere they tell me if you want a cute reptile you have to feed them disgusting crickets and other nasty, vomit inducing things I wouldn't touch with a ten foot long pole.
Now, the way I see it, the only other options left are frugivores and herbivores, or even actual carnivores, like stuff that eats mice. Anyone got ideas?

Iguanas are herbivores no? Or are they like tegus and need a highly varied diet?

Not that I'd recommend either to anyone without a lot of reptile experience.

>>
>>1985205
Iguanas are pretty strict herbivores when they're adults, as juveniles they'll eat insects occasionally.

>>1985194
An option might be a blue tongued skink, they're omnivores which need a varied diet of meat and veg but the meat can be dead, so like minced meat, even eggs.

I own a large breed myself (pic related) out of preference, but I also enjoy small dogs and am in no way spiteful towards them.

>>1982238
I suppose you're talking about the courtship dances some spiders(most notably wolf and jumping spiders) have? Most popular works will only offer brief descriptions, so I guess you'll have to find some nice academic ethological journal that specialises in spiders. You can find some nice recordings of these dances on youtube, too.

My turn: Can anyone recommend some nice articles on eusociality in spiders? I've been wanting to learn about it for a long time, yet can't find much material.
