  • What pets, preferably mammals, can you put in a ten gallon tank apart from fish?

    Best answer: provided that the tank isn't too tall, the only mammal i think you could have is mice, you could get about 3 or 4, preferably females as males may fight. make sure that the tank has a mesh screen lid for air circulation. mice can fit through just about anything their head can fit through, so make sure the mesh... show more

  • Can I take a hedgehog to a veterinarian in California?

    So I really want to own a hedgehog. I have researched about them and I have the money to do it, however, they are illegal where I live. If I bought a hedgehog out of state it would be fine except that I would obviously need to take it to the vet. Will a vet clinic have to legally turn me in for owning the hedgehog?

  • How can Banfield inside(Petsmart)be considered a hospital?

    The manager at Banfield inside Petsmart just told me they aren’t a hospital. She would consider them to be like your Primary Care provider. But they don’t do ER stuff and don’t have oxygen for animals. So I’m confused how they are able to operate under a hospital setting vs Clinic setting.

  • Can you fix a crippled butterfly?

    Best answer: No. This is a natural process and needs no help from humans. You try in any way, you do more harm than good. You have to live with the fact that in nature, things don't always go as they should.

    Inverts don't suffer, releasing is sending it to doom. Killing is the only other option.
    I once rescued a preying mantis from a parking lot, poor thing went through a bad molt and his wings were deformed so could barely take flight. he went behind the building released in trees and shrub in hope he can fulfill his life.

  • College pet?

    So, I'm an animal person and I'm going to college in September 2018. Unfortunately, they won't let me keep anything bigger than a 5 gallon tank in my dorm.

    So, I'm an animal person and I'm going to college in September 2018. Unfortunately, they won't let me keep anything bigger than a 5 gallon tank in my dorm. I've been considering African Dwarf frogs or maybe a betta, but I'd really prefer something that I could hold and pet. Not a huge fan of spiders, but I like pretty much all other animals. I'm also a hardcore snake fan. I'm willing to put in as much time and money as needed to provide optimal care for the pet. Also, since I only need 3 years for my degree (of which I may just live the first year on campus and the rest in an apartment, depending on what's available), I'd be open to the option of getting a pet that can live in a 5gal as a baby and then be transferred to a larger tank once I'm not living under dorm rules. Any/all suggestions are appreciated. Thanks <3

  • Are there any pets that can be left alone for the weekend?

    Looking for suggestions on pets that can be left alone for a weekend. I go on weekend trips about once every other month and I live far from friends or family who could watch them. Any suggestions would be great!

  • Is it true euthanised dog/cats are used in unspecified dog/cat food?

    When I searched up what happened to euthanised dogs there were so many links that stated they get rendered then processed into cheap meat-by pet food. Please tell me it's a rumour.

    I will be going to college for film production soon. I have always wanted to get a dog but I know I can t adopt because I am not financially stable quite yet and don t know what I will be doing in the next 12-14 years. Thus wanting to foster because it doesn t require AS MUCH responsibility. I know dogs are a big responsibility. I am a fairly active person and will be able to exercise and train the dog. I also will wait 3 months until I start fostering the dog. Finally, I am renting a pet-friendly apartment (depending on the breed). I will check with my landlord if the breed I want to foster is acceptable. Do you think fostering a dog is the right thing and can you give me any tips?

  • How do you handle the unexpected death of a young pet?

    Best answer: It's difficult to lose a pet of any age, but somehow it's much more upsetting to lose what we thought was a young and healthy one. When we lose an elderly pet, we are very sad, but deep down inside we know that old age takes us all. But when a young human or pet dies, it's sort of shocking - and we... show more
    Best answer: It's difficult to lose a pet of any age, but somehow it's much more upsetting to lose what we thought was a young and healthy one. When we lose an elderly pet, we are very sad, but deep down inside we know that old age takes us all. But when a young human or pet dies, it's sort of shocking - and we have that to deal with too. No real answers here, other than to allow yourself time to grieve, and to get over the shock. You will always remember the deceased pet fondly and miss their presence the same as you would for a very elderly pet.
