I have recently learned a very good tip for treating wet tail which is highly effective. even with some of the sickest hamsters. ive treated well over 20 hamsters with wet tail at the pet store i work at. all you need to do is feed the dri tail liquid directly to the hamsters through a dropper. about 8 drops. also add it to the water as directed.

I have a blue and white dutch bunny. He is the first pet I have had as an adult and my first bunny. He has a great disposition, is very playful, and loves to be petted. He is easy to care for and was easy to litterbox train. He pretty much trained himself. They are very smart animals. He loves to play. He runs all over the room and binkys high! He has a ball that he likes to roll around and he likes to hide in his little huts made out of cardboard boxes. He loves treats such as raisins, apples, carrots, broccoli, oranges, cilantro, mint, and parsley. He seems particularly fond of the mint and will pull it right out of your hand and gulp it down! : ) He does require alot of attention as they do get lonely but he is so worth it! He also gives bunny kisses which is a high honor. They will only groom some one they truly trust and love. He also knows that i always kiss his nose and has started to put his nose out for kisses! So cute. Bunnies are a great pet if you have the time for them but they also require alot of research. They are a fragile animal and need the proper care. But if you are considering one for a pet, a dutch is great to start out with. But be prepared. They can live up to around 10-15 years if properly cared for.

Hello everyone, i am a proud owner of a sto, for short, whose name is benny, jr. We have had him for a few months and he is so sweet and friendly, but, and i say but in caps for a reason;are you ready? He eats his own poop! ! It is so completely nasty and i have caught him already a few times doing it. I provide him with the special food they recommended at the exotic pet shop where we bought him- but why is he doing this? What makes it worse is that he gets it on his little 'fingers' and flings it about his home,(a fish aquarium. ) he makes such a mess and it is just so gross because then we don't want to handle him after seeing it stuck to his feet! ! Anyone have this problem?

    I have seen this with dogs. I don't know of any absolute cures, but I've seen products for dogs that may help. There is a discussion here and products here . I can't attest to how well any of them work (thank goodness I've not had to deal with this problem myself)

    Hehehe, you are an animal lover! So what shall you get... I've had chinchillas and they're very cool, though not quite as snuggly as cat or bunny (definitely more snuggly than a turtle) and they can't take hot temperatures, so there's that to consider. But they are so soft and are curious. Now I'm wanting a bunny myself, and am thinking of one of those really big ones, so I can take if for walks... (but will have to research that some more:)) Anyway, good luck on your decision making, I'm sure whatever you get you'll have a great time and wonderful friend.

    I am interested in finding a bunny myself, and I am probably going to, however I am at my grandmothers house for the summer, and there are many wild cats that live there, my sister, mom, and I caught 3, an adult female, and two kittens (both male) and I am REALLY enjoying taming them. They may not be the pet for you, but I absolutely LOVE the cute things:) I really recommend getting kittens or a cat. However, if you get one, try to get or from an animal shelter, it hurts me to think of how many animals are put to sleep each day, so please try to save one. Thanks for reading!

Hello, well I am sorry to say, about 2 weeks ago we were clearing land we bought. My husband cut down a dead tree and there was a mama Raccoon with 3 babies in it. The mama ran off so we left the babies alone and hoped mama would come back for them..She came back for 2 but not the little girl.. I brought her home and it has been 2 weeks her eyes are now open and she is doing great. I am a dog breeder so I know about keeping them warm and stimulating them so they can go the bathroom and I just started worming her. I am not sure if I can let her go when she is old enough, I cry just at the thought of her being all alone in the world. Please, if anyone can help with in any information the do's and dont's of raccoon care I really need help. Thank you, Dawn

    Well if u do, guinea pigs are suppose to b kept in pairs or more. They're very social animals and become depressed easily from loneliness. But if u r home and spend a majority of ur time with it I'd recommend a friend. Employees in pets stores may say its ok to keep one but most don't really know what they're talking about. And b sure to give them plenty of space. Food and hay and vedgitbles daily. . And guinea pigs can't store vitamin c so give them orange slices often and u can even buy drops to put in their water. And don't forget lots of love.

When i was about 9 years old, i got a baby female guinea pig. I named her Mollie just for the heck of it. She is an abbi-haired guinea pig. I already had an elderly guinea pig named Gorjet. I got her and rescued her from an irresponsible adult. I am a kid and took better care of her. Then she died and Mollie is about 3-4 years old. Now that mollie needs a friend, I am going to get her two little friends named Spunky and Abbi. She is going to love it. I am even more. If my mom would let me, and we had enough money, I would take every gp in the rescues, shelters, and petshops. When I get older I am going to be a guinea pig breeder, and a darn good one too.

My bunny Oreo is very very soft and cuddly! Oreo is 3 years old and very nice. Oreo likes to eat bunny food, carrots, grass, dandelions, lettuce and apples. She does not bite unless she is very hungry and needs food. I like to play with Oreo outside in the summer. In the winter Oreo runs around in the basement and in the summer she likes to be in her cage under the pine tree.

    Oreo sounds like an awesome friend, and I llike her name too. Does she look like an oreo cookie? I think being under the pine tree in the summer must be very nice for her, a cool shaded spot.

    Hey can I change Oreo's name like Hershys or somthimg?
