Hey /an/, I don't know a whole lot about animals or anything but my doggy has been acting really weird for the past month or so. She's been eating very little, shaking, having no energy, had wet breathing, thousand-yard-staring, and a few other things. Normally I would attribute it to aging, but it's happened very quickly. My mum took her to the vet, she's my mum's dog, and they said it could be either a tick borne illness or cancer, but they couldn't confirm either.
What's happening with her? Is she dying? How do I make her feel better?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2125334 >Both of those can be diagnosed with blood tests and the cancer can be confirmed with imaging too. The tests came back negative for anything conclusive, and her hematocrit was really low. They did an ultrasound of her pancreas to rule out pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer.
It hurts to see her like this, I made her a little scarf to try and keep her warm but it doesn't seem to be doing anything
One of Zimbabwe’s largest wildlife reserves, the Bubye Valley Conservancy, recently announced that they must reduce their number of lions, currently at 500, by at least 200. This “issue” is being called “The Cecil Effect” by some, as the overpopulation is being attributed to the fact that trophy hunters are afraid to hunt after the uproar over Cecil the lion’s death at the hands of American dentist Walter Palmer

Welcome to /plant/, the resident plant general thread. This magical thread is where an off-colored S. Purpurea becomes christened as a new species, anons are turned on by hikers fucking nepenthes pitchers, and hail continues to wreck another anon's garden. RIP.

>>2116510 I hope more that someone else is capable of taking his place. Never have I seen someone with such passion and love for nature as this guy. He speaks about nature like a teacher would to his preschool class.
How long does it generally take a dog to learn a new trick? I'm dogsitting every weekday, and I'm trying to teach the dog to shake, but he doesn't seem to get it. Half the time he lies down when I give the shake command. I show him what to do every time.
I know he's not unteachable, he knows sit, stay, and come, and I taught him to respond to a hand sign for sit.
I also need help getting him to walk nicely on the leash, he pulls everywhere, and if he sees a person he sits down and refuses to move until that person pets him.
So last week I made a thread about my pupper getting leg surgery. She was taken out of state to St. Louis where my gf is from because her best friend back at home is a vet tech and her office could do the surgery for a good price. So I call her up after the surgery was done and ask her how it went.
She said everything was good but after they finished my doggo's temperature had dropped a lot so they put some warm water packs and a blanket on her to warm her up while she was still knocked out and it had apparently burned her a little... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Well she's back home in NC now so she couldn't go back there if we wanted her to. We had an appointment with a vet here this coming Friday to get the staples in her leg out but we're trying to get it moved up so they can take a look at this.
Seriously, there's so many unique adaptations that these little gobies do that make me wonder if they'll be a new form of amphibious organism. I mean, they don't have lobed fins, but bones connecting their pectoral fins are angled to form "elbows" to help traverse on land. They also can blink! FUCKING BLINK! Most reptiles don't blink! Or, using water in it's mouth as a tongue to help swallow? Or using Suction cupped pelvic fins to climb up mangrove roots? Or to breath with it's skin, or to roll in the mud to not dry out?
There's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm at the end of my rope, /an/. Pic related is my cat, who my wife and I rescued about a year ago. He's playful, moderately affectionate and fairly well behaved. However, he absolutely refuses to be an indoor cat. If we try to keep him inside, he meows incessantly until we let him out.
Recently, the apartment complex we live at changed their rules to forbid outside cats. They've already called the local pound to round up some of the cats in the area. To make matters worse, we live next to a field where he is getting ticks on his fur and bringing them... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm trying to identify a few plant species and I've had no luck with these few plants, so I'm asking on here if anyone happens to know or likes a good challenge. These plants were found in south eastern West Virginia if that helps.
I currently live on campus and my ex is neglecting her rabbit so i'm probably going to go steal it this weekend and take care of it here because frankly he liked me more and she never fed the thing.
How safe's storing the rabbit in a carrier while it sleeps overnight? I understand it'd need a shitload of hay and a hiding place in the cage, but it was a house rabbit before (Dwarf Lop). I also used to take it for walks occasionally, so that shouldn't be an issue for exercise.
>>2126893 who cares, you're not gonna be able to properly care for a bunny while living on a campus anyway. they need way too much space for that. all you'd do is keep it under shitty conditions while being under the impression you saved it.
>>2126897 If you're talking about keeping it in one of these things every night you can forget about it. Bunnies are active for most of the night and having it locked up for several hours every day in this shit is just torture.
