  • Is this normal for a puppy incision?

    It has been exactly 14 days since my puppy got spayed and today when I checked her incision it looks like this. It is pink in color and it doesn’t hurt her when I touch it gently.

  • Why is my girl dog being mean to my boy dog when they come inside?

    I have a boy and girl German shepherd. They've always got along fine and they had a litter. I had the puppies and mom in my room and any time mom saw dad she went crazy and attacked him even if the puppies were nowhere near them. After the puppies were gone to new homes they started getting along again but when she is in my room and the boy tries to come in she growls at him. Why is this? Dad is a very dominant dog towards other males and could easily tear her apart but he just cowards and avoids her

  • Rehoming a 6 month old puppy?

    How hard is it on a puppy to be rehomed?? The reason I have to rehome her is because I don’t have the time and she stresses my other two dogs out (her parents); they run and sit by me when she comes near them. I tried to keep her because I didn’t want her going to just anyone and I thought it wouldn’t be that bad but she is very difficult and different than any other dog I have ever raised and i don’t think it’s fair to her that I cannot give her the love she needs & I know the couple she is going to very well. Should I feel bad and does this make me a bad person :(

  • When is the best time to spay a dog after a litter of puppies?

    Recently I took in a stray who happened to be pregnant,she had all of her pups,before I got her she had severe mange,EXTREMELY underweight and had horrible worms she is also blind and deaf..she was in the worst condition I have ever seen a dog in and I’m surprised her pups came out healthy,I want to keep her as a pet since I’ve bonded with her, when would be the best time to get her spayed? Also I was considering dropping the pups off at a nearby shelter once they turn 8 weeks but I would feel horrible since they already are packed,what would be my best option with the pups? If anyone becomes curious,I have took her to the vet to get treated for most of the things she had wrong with her,she’s now healthy and happy,I do plan to take the puppies to the vet to get their vaccines and wormed same with the mother since I couldn’t because she was carrying puppies (my veterinarian informed me on this) I apologize for such a silly question but I have never dealt with this situation before,I’m not a breeder so I have zero experience in whelping puppies,I have done as much research as I could but with this specific question there’s so many mixed answers I just want to know a solid correct answer.

  • Why do people get so worked up over dogs being in stores?

    Best answer: Good question. I get lots of people wanting to pet my female Dalmatian when I take her to stores like Lowe's, Home Depot, & non food areas in Walmart. She has flown to Montana & back in the cabin with me.

    I have been ignored but never confronted by any one except people who want to pet her.

  • Nothing in my fish tank is surviving and I don't know why, help?

    Best answer: A 5 gallon tank is only large enough for a single betta and the shrimp the other fish didnt stand a chance in there.
    That being said, they should have survived for a few weeks or months, not died right away. like that.

    Your tank is cycled? what are the results of tests for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?

    The tank has a 50% water change? are you trying to say that you do 50 % water changes?
    You should do 25% water changes once a week with a gravel vacuum. You need to add new water that is the same temperature as the rest of the tank water, which should be 78-82 for a beta.

    Did you acclimate the fish? even bettas need to be carefully acclimated.

  • Does a person raising mice to feed pet snakes watch the mouse get eaten.?

    Best answer: Nope. I had a buddy who worked at a "feed store" specifically to sell rats and mice for feeding purposes. Some customers (most) bought them live and took them home for the snakes. There was a number of customers who wanted fresh but dead rats or mice in which case you have to end their life on the spot. Sounds cruel but it goes with the territory. In his case he had a wooden paddle to dispatch them quickly, with one hit. Be prepared for that and try to remain neutral. Don't derive guilt or pleasure from the process. It's a job.

  • Dog won’t use back leg, keeps falling over?

    I know what everyone will say: “go to the vet” but he doesn’t work on the weekends so I have to wait a whole day, and I’m curious if anyone else has experienced this. My dog suddenly can’t stand for very long. He’s holding one of his back legs up as if it’s hurt, but doesn’t have any wounds and I can move it around without him in any pain. He seems wobbly on the other back leg and can’t seem to keep his lower body up. I offered him ham, but he couldn’t come and get it. He just tried to claw his way forward with his front paws. Anyone ever have this happen before?

  • Could this be a good idea to save animals lives? For a law to exist that no one can buy from puppy mills, until no or very few pets (in?

    that city's local animal shelters) are euthanized due to overpopulation. PS... I understand that it would be hard to enforce, but I do believe it could stop so many animals from being euthanized. What are your thoughts on this?
