My pink toe hadn't eaten in about two weeks and now he's having problems gripping the glass. He can't climb the side of his terrarium, when he tries he just slides down or falls off. If anyone has any ideas please help me by responding.

    My 1 1/2 year old mexican red knee female is currently experiencing the same problem and I have no idea why.

    Our pink toe has recently started sliding down the glass as well. He has no traction and falls a lot. He's been spending time down on the substrate, and I'm wondering if his toes are dirty. I haven't seen him grooming for awhile and he used to do it quite often. He is an adult male, so I don't know how much longer he will live. I hope the slippery feet isn't a sign of old age.

    Now my pink toe has cocooned himself at the bottom of the cage, I'm hoping this is just a stage before the molt. Please help if you know something I don't.

    It sounds like you are misting/spraying the walls of the vivarium. Pinktoes grip is amazing and if yours has moulted; the moult has grip as well. My advice would be to spray cooled boiled water onto the susbstrate (two quick sprays should do) and any plastic plants you may have in there.

    Tarantulas will often act this way before moulting.

    Make sure it has lots of water.

Hi, I have adopted a long hair chi about a year ago and I adore him and I'm his person. I have two questions......i wanted to know if it's normal for this kind of bread to have watery eyes and since it's fur is light coloured it has always dark circles under his eyes . My biggest issue is that he is afraid of my husband and no matter what we do to make him feel secure he doesn't trust him and is afraid of him no matter what, he even pees on my husband's side of sofa and I'm sure he does it on purpose. I can assure that my husband is a dog lover and he never hit him or anything.....I will appreciate any comment. Thanks

    Yes, this breed is also known to have very watery eyes, and it can cause tearstains. Also this is not necessarily a Chihuahua only problem, it is more common in any of the 'big eyes' breeds of dogs.

    As far as the fear of your husband, that may or may not be changed, one of those things that is not a for sure. But you could try a professional 'positive-based' trainer. The behavior trainer may be able to help you determine if the dogs behavior could be manageable and possibly help over come, but it will take a lot of work and commitment and take a lot of time.

Is there anything wrong if we keep peacock eels of about 3 to 6 inches length with a small Tortoise...???

    Well first off, tortoises don't live in water. Perhaps you are asking about an aquatic or semi-aquatic turtle, like a red-eared slider or something?. You would need to set the aquarium up for the needs of the Peacock Eel, i.e. tropical temperatures, good filtration and water movement, necessary decor, correct diet, and then keeping the water quality up.

    If you then want to include turtles, compatability isn't really the problem. It's the very different types of animals and their needs. Understand that turtles place a very large bio-load on an aquarium, so keeping a quality aquarium for the eels will take a lot more maintenance just to keep the fish healthy.

    You can learn about turtles and their needs on the Selecting and Caring for Turtles and Tortoises page, and then read the care page for the needs of the particular type of turtle you are interested in.

I have two fresh water fish living in a 96 litre tank with a Tetratec IN 800 filtration system, I preform 10-15% water changes every week and have just recently been bought two more fish, will the size of my tank be enough? The breed of fish are; Common goldfish, two Comet goldfish and a Shubunkin, I'll also be buying a gravel cleaner and an algae scraper very soon, the tank has just been set up and the two new fish are in the quarantine tank for a week or two, any help would be greatly appreciated, also, would a couple small snails be okay in the tank? I'm not buying them till I'm sure everything will be okay, thank you.

    No, unfortunately a 96 ltr tank is only 25 gallons, and will not be near enough water as these fish get older. When small it may work for awhile, but you will soon have to upgrade. As you can see in the aquarium setup info above, goldfish require a minimum of 10 gallons per fish. That is 50 gallons (190 ltr) just for the 5 goldfish.

My daughter has a long haired we call her Grandpuppy (as we have no grandchildren yet) and she is adorable. We take her often for overnights. She is also not a barker and her personality and temperament is fabulous. At our house she goes potty outside only. We have a puppy pad down at all times but she has never used it. She absolutely LOVES people. She is constantly on my husband or myself. As for bed, she sleeps with us. During the night if she becomes chilled she will paw me and all I do is lift the blankets and down she goes, snuggled up to me. I have no idea how she can breathe under there for hours but she does. If she needs to pee during the night (which is rare) she will lick my face consistently. She is such a joy to have around and so calming and funny at her crazy times that we are now searching for one of our own. With the allergies my husband has with animals, she is not an issue at all for him.

    Where did you find her?
  • Louise - 2014-04-18
    We just adopted a Long-haired Chihuahua … she’s 8 years old. She’s amazing. She’s both potty and piddle-pad trained. She seems to do well with people and my grandchildren. Like you Lucy is constantly on me or my husband. She also sleeps in our bed but we’ve taught her when light goes out she has to go down to her end of the bed with her own blanket. Only once I had to take her out in the middle of the night, she came and pestered me … but that was once in the months we’ve had her. I take her for 30 to 45 min. walks, when we get back to our yard she runs around likes she’s put with so much energy. She’s pure joy and we are so happy we adopted her.
