I saw my lovebirds mate a couple of months back. It was start of summer in Pakistan but than they stop doing it. I was disappointed as really want the see their cute babies. They are feeding each other and getting in and out of nest box regularly but still no eggs. Perhaps it was due to the summer season as temperature goes to 35C plus. Any one help me with situation thanks. Kashif

    Yes, it could be the temperature, or low humidity, or a combination of the two, that is disrupting egg production. It could simply be that they are young. Sometimes new couples need to just try for a while until they get it. Imexperience can also keep them from properly sitting on the eggs with the first clutch.
  • Rohan Banik - 2014-08-06
    Hi kashif, i would suggest you not to expect egg from your bird during summer as this will damage your bird even their babies will be of bad health or can die. The best time to put the nest box or to expect baby from them is between 17th of september till 28th of march as per your country's weather..... Thanks

I have a green iguana and she's beautiful love her to death I spoil her and talk to her and she listens to me. I had her for 5 years and she's so healthy and she loves her apples,broccoli,and kale. Then her actual food that smells like fruity pebbles lol. But other than that she's amazing and funny. One time me and my husband watched a pats game and we upset about the other team and she stuck up her middle finger at the team we laughed so hard and it was cute.

What is the best way to giv our little one some Trifexis? I mean that stuff STINKS and these dogs have a smeller that will detect this 'stinky stuff.' We tried a little allpesauce, put some in his treat, and we resorted to actually.... I held him while my wife put some in some yogurt and forced it down/made him swollow it. I felt bad doing it but you would think they could make this stuff so a dog could take it. Any thoughts for next time?

    DAG this stuff stinks the house. WHOA!!
  • Clarice Brough - 2012-11-21
    Heh... sounds like you guys had some fun:_  I've used hot dogs to bury the medication in for dogs, and that usually works because they will just gulp it down (no chewing for them!). Also, a technique I use when medicating dogs and cats... I open their mouth by gently inserting my finger on the far side of the mouth, just past the molars. Then I put the pill as far back in their throat as I can, where all they can really do is swallow. It's fast, effective, and over before they even know it happened! Then I give them lots of love and praise.
  • Jim - 2012-11-25
    :) #1 worse part....to put the stuff in his mouth so he swollows it. #2 worse part.....Trifexis STUNK THE HOUSE UP. This stuff stinks and our dog can smell it(no matter what we tried).
  • Toni - 2012-12-03
    A miracle has happened! We can get heartworm medication injected for a six month period of time and it is no more expensive than six months of Trifexis. I just got my dog, Bonnie, an injection and am so glad I no longer have to wrestle with her to get that stupid pill, which she hated, down her little throat.
  • Joon - 2012-12-07
    I usually break the Trifexis in half since the pill is kind of big for them to swallow, then coat it with cream cheese monthly for both of my dogs, long hair chi & miniature poodle. It works like a charm every time.
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-12-07
    I break it up a litle and then put it in a fairly good size piece of cheeses or a ball of cheeses whiz or piece of hot dog.
  • Jim - 2012-12-10
    We tried breaking it up and rolling it in cheese. It worked for one piece then he smelled the second piece of cheese and walked away. That's when my wife put it in some yogurt and (kinda) put it in his mouth. Got some on his coat by his ear and she washed him but didn't get it all. I took a pair of scissors and had to cut the piece off. Getting onto a different topic it seems our dog has a smooth coat but when it comes to the ear area it 'looks' kinda matted(it's not just looks that way). Seems the area 'feels' kinda damp and wondered if it had to do with his ear.
  • Nancy - 2012-12-13
    I break the Trifexis into several pieces and then put them into pieces of a Pill Pocket. My dog loves the Pill Pockets! Good luck!
  • Gerri - 2013-01-07
    Coat the pill with smooth peanut butter and your chi should gulp it down like mine does.
  • Jim - 2013-01-22
    'Should gulp it up?' You don't know our guy. He likes the peanut butter then when he smells the Trifexis he walks away. I feel bad forcing it down his throat but I tell him 'it's for your own good.'
  • Anonymous - 2013-01-27
    Try fat free American cheese. I have an 11 year old longhaired chi with an emlarged heart. He has to take several pills a day. We first tried just putting them down his throat - didn't work. Then we tried the pill pocket routine - worked for a few times and that was the end of that. He loves American cheese. We now wrap his pills (sometimes I have to cut them up if they are kind of big) in pieces of cheese. No problem, right down the gullett - I guess he thinks they are treats. You might try that avenue.
  • Jim - 2013-04-04
    NOTHING works for this guy. UNFORTUNATELY we have to resort to forcing down his mouth. Yeah just put some stuff that stinks the high heavens into some cheese and he won't know. YEA, RIGHT!!! After grinding it up in some yogurt, an hour afterwards he hacked that up. Have I stated that this junk stinks?
  • Deb - 2014-08-06
    Yes, stop using trifexis. My dogs were on it. I have two long-hairs and they got ticks and fleas. It does not work as well as Frontline and Heartguard. My dogs LOVE the Heartguard and have NO problems with the Frontline. I tend to stay with what works. The concept is good for the Trifexis but they need to perfect it before they sell this stuff!!

We just bought a young female white dove. I have a concern though. Does anyone know if she will become depressed? She has no mate. She is let out of her cage daily for freedom; however, until next month she a a cage that is a bit too small. Can anyone help me with my question? Thanks

    It's hard to gauge what will make a bird depressed. Some species of doves will live in flocks while others won't. White Doves usually live in pairs, but are often alone if they don't yet have a mate.

Mollys are very cool fish. You can make your own combinations by breeding them. For example get a marbled molly and breed it with a Orange Balloon Molly and the outcome will be cool. Buy a couple and keep the male ratio to one male for two females because the male will chase females and somewhat exuast them.

I have 4 finches, two male and two female. One set very aggressive, had to separate them from the other ones. Now they have laid 5 eggs, all have hatched.
Had to remove male,was picking on mother and babies. They are now about 3 weeks old. Can I leave the mother with them after they are weened? Do I remove the nest when they can take care of themselves?

    Zebra Finch babies will be ready to leave their mother at about 4-6 weeks of age. At 6 weeks it's best to remove the young birds to their own cage.

    It sounds like there is a problem with your water quality. You can test for ammonia, nitrate, etc. to help determine what's going on with it. Also look at your filtration, it may be inadequate, and the water turning brown definitely indicates a problem.

I own a what I believe to be a male midas cichlid. I'm 95% sure he is a male. The territory displays,the attacking of everything that enters the water. The long trailing dorsal and analysis fins. Anyway mine is in a 90 gallon currently I just moved him from a 55. Now my confusion lies in were is his hump.his head is thick but it's no wider than his body. There's also no real shape from a side profile either. Is this because there's no female or am I doing something wrong? He eats fine very aggressive fairly active. Has a pond snail named turbo for a buddy. But why has this guaranteed hump not forming?

    Well, hopefully it is a Midas Cichlid. Both male and female specimens can get a slight hump, but it is usually larger in males. The hump begins to form when they are mature, usually this is at about 6 inches (15 cm). I've alsoheard that the hump develops better and faster if they are very comfortable in their environment.

I have a large yellow loach in my tank, among many other types of fish. However, when i cleaned my tank and but him back in it he seems bloated and floats to the top. I feel as if he is tired/annoyed . Iv heard they "fart" air bubbles to rid this, however i havent noticed. Help?

    It sounds like he may be 'gulping' air when he is stressed by the transfer process, which will make them look bloated until the air is dispelled. Perhaps you can leave him in the tank when you are doing maintenance. Do only regular partial a water changes while syphoning the gravel, then you won't have to move him and hopefully you won't have to deal with stress issues.
