Hey /an/, rookie rabbit owner seeking advice and possible comfort in regard to how my vet is treating my bunny
Took advice from a previous /an/ thread and set up an appointment to neuter my new pal, as well as treat an ear infection I noticed, due to shaking his head, and one ear always dropped. Was given ear drops on first visit to establish new patient, and found out his liver enzymes were over double what they should have been when pre-op bloodwork was performed on the next. Was told to continue ear drops, and to give an oral med to help with the enzymes. Came back... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2164820 I plan to either email or call the doc tomorrow and ask about things, and I'm trying to just learn as much as I can, to hopefully ask the right questions and obtain proper care for my rabbit.
Would it be unwise to ask the doc if they're yanking my wallet on all this, due to three visits over six weeks, with two more already planned and a possible surgery and follow-up after that? I mean, they charge $17.50 for a nail trim, as well as double the going rate for ear medicine that I can nab off Amazon,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2164820 I don't have the attention span to read all that, nor do I know that much about rabbits, but I do have some words of advice. Exotic / small animal vet or no vet at all. If your vet isn't explicitly experienced with rabbits and other small animals, take it somewhere else. With anything other than cats and dogs, regular vets simply can't be trusted. Good luck, OP.

Do you think it was horribly painful /an/? Do you think as the horns tore through his chest, cracked his ribs, entered his chest cavity and instantly mulched his organs, he felt regret? Do you think in those final moments lying there in the sand he felt the truth of absolute terror washing over him?
The law exists because when a person is caught with feathers belonging to rare and protected birds there is no way to prove whether it was just collected or whether a bird was killed to harvest it, thus a blanket ban is enforced. I know they're pretty but just leave them. We don't need them but other animals can actually use them.
my grandspa used to collect raptor feathers all the time and gave them to me when i was little i still have them, but i was dumb when i was younger and washed them, the barn feather owl isn't as soft anymore ;_;
So just to be clear,don't say "replace the rats with something else cuse they're disgusting" i don't think that.Anyway's so when they die,i want to get a bird but i want both rats and guinea pigs,but i don't have the room or money so i can't,so which one should i get rid of? I've got more experience with guinea pigs but the rats are easier to handle.So what should i do?
I've been wanting to get this asshole a friend. I'm terrified of if they don't get along and I'm not quite sure how to ensure that they do. Any suggestions on how I should go about finding a suitable friend?
My cat is about 3 years old and spayed, if that helps.
What is his personality like? Is he playful, reserved, friendly, not friendly etc.
In general, its best to get an adult cat for an adult cat, generally around the same age. 2-6 is a good range for you to look in. I encourage people to look at the older part of that range, because they tend to be chiller and they have a harder time getting adopted. If he's really playful and active I'd recommend getting him an outgoing male of a similar personality. If he's more reserved and likes to cuddle... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Also as far as getting them to get along, the best thing to do is a set up the new cat in a side room, and let it chill in there for at least a week. That gives the cat time to adjust and calm down, and it gives both of them time to sniff each other under the door while still being safe and having their own designated space. After at least a week, you can open the door and let the cat explore the house at his own pace. Monitor their interaction, but don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
There's a litter of four kittens and a mother in my back yard, living beneath my porch. They look like they're about six weeks of age. I want to adopt one, would it be cruel to separate it from it's mother?
Take the mother and kittens to an spca. If you can't, take them in yourself and get them checked for any mites, flees, etc. Then when they're around 8 weeks old you can adopt them out and keep one for yourself (keep the mother too if you can! Older cats are a lot harder to adopt out)
take it nigga, its a kitten. Just feed it high quality canned food (from a pet store, no grocery store shit) mixed with KMR. Hell take all of them and feed them, give them away when they're old enough and keep the one you want
>>2164181 I found these two kittens in my house when I came back from college.. They were shivering like crazy.. Then I took them in and feed them.. Kittens are great.. you will enjoy their company.. Take them..
hello /an/, I recently took in an old dog (idk how old he is but he's big) and i've been having trouble getting him to like me. the only way i've been able to pet him is with a treat and any sudden movement he'll jolt. he always has his head down and will barely wag his tail and it's really sad. i've had him for over 3 months now and thought i'd have made headway by now but no. just looking for suggestions on how to bond, really idk if he was abused but to me it sure seems like it. thanks
>>2163871 The fact that he is wagging his tail is a good sign. See if he likes walks; that's how I got my hoarding case dog to at least start equating me with some small joy in life. Get a harness where you can clip it to the collar, so if he freaks out you will have two fail-safes if he manages to wiggle out of the harness or back out of the collar. If it won't freak him out, also add a slip lead in case the dog does get out of the collar and harness, but use it as a last resort because it will tighten as a choke... Comment too long.

>>2163916 Slip lead is a kind of leash used without a collar, wobbler and Kong are interactive toys. Those can be googled so you know what they are. Ice buckets is my bad; an ice bucket is where you put food and treats in some container filled with water (I usually use chicken broth or beef broth to give it flavor) toss it in the freezer, and hand out the ice (not the container; use some hot water to get it out of the container) once it's frozen. The idea is it's fun to break away the ice and it's tasty. You can... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

There's a note in the box this came from that's been folded for so long it's sort of fused together. I can't get it open with tearing it, but from what I can read of it this was actually a gift to Mr. Bruner from a Mr. E.H. Raymour, who found it near Jeffersonville.
My new pet cockatiel is tapping his foot. They look like spasms or something. I'm trying to up the calcium in his diet but does anyone know of any other common causes for this? Obviously I have a vets appointment but it seems to make him very uncomfortable, I hate seeing him like that.
>>2165381 He doesn't seem agitated though. He seems very happy; he sings a lot, spends a lot of time outside, likes to eat. He is a seed junkie though. I offer him fresh food and pellets all the time, he's just so picky. That's why I'm thinking its a calcium deficiency.
