Re: Cat food "experiment" + comparison of wet foods

Thankfully Jake likes the dry food we get that is a fairly healthy one. I keep forgetting the name though. I know it by sight in the store. He likes Friskies for the canned but it's a smaller part of his diet. He used to like meow mix canned when he was younger.

Re: "Sic" Emu

[quote="pat"] what type of pellets do you give your goats? I am not saying food is the issue from your emu's death. but, sounds like some of the food you were giving him is not good for an emu. /quote] I don't know anything about what emus need but that's a good point. Goat food is high in...

Re: Cat food "experiment" + comparison of wet foods

Jake also dislikes any pate cat food. He likes his food small pieces and with lots of gravy.

Re: Intact prairie dog

It sounds like he may be over weight. The extra fat can hide the genitals and make it messy around there as well. Being on an unhealthy food will for sure make an animal smell worse.

Re: Donnie

Kidney and liver issues are very common in older foxes and older animals in general so there is fairly high likelihood that it's at least part of his issues but it's not a sure thing without a blood test. If you're going to get the phosphorus binder from the vet then you can ask for some denamarin a...

Re: Donnie

This one is the Aluminum Hydroxide which is what the vet prescribed before. https://amzn.to/2H9yI7i

It binds to the phosphorus so the kidneys don't have to work as hard.

Re: Rash on face

Neem oil is made from the neem tree. It's great for most any skin condition, but it does stink. It has anti bacterial, anti viral, anti fungal properties and can even work for mites. We used it when my dad made pet spray since it helps with fleas some so have a bunch of it. https://draxe.com/neem-oil/

Re: Donnie

When they have kidney or/and liver problems they will go up and down like that. There are some things that can be done to extend life by making them more comfortable, like phosphorus binders on the food if it's kidneys and denamarin for liver. The vet would normally prescribe them after a blood test...

Re: Rash on face

Being itchy helps rule out some things that can be mistaken for rash but technically aren't so wanted to be sure. When I first got Pua she gave me a nasty rash between my legs because that's where she liked to sleep. I do have a contact allergy to them which is more mild now from exposure but she ma...

Re: USDA proposed rule changes

Yeah it's not a loophole but that's how USDA see's it, they want to do less work, and they are trying to stop people from getting USDA to have banned species. Like I could get Iki because I have USDA and my state exempts USDA from the ban. Right now you can apply if you plan to exhibit but they want...

Re: "Sic" Emu

It's worth trying. There's some chance that once the parasites are killed and swelling goes down in the brain there could be some improvement if the issues are from the swelling and not permanent damage.

Re: "Sic" Emu

Might be cerebral nematodiasis (brain worm disease). Pat has had to deal with that before and it presented the same as the animal unable to lift it's body or head. Unfortunately the odds of recovery are not good. Ivermectin kills the parasites but it wont reverse the brain damage.

Re: Arrival of Tiny the Fennec Fox

Welcome. It sounds like you ran across the discussion we had on fennecs and lighting already. The gross summery though, was that the light would need to be close to benefit and you need to consider UVB lights do still give off the bad UV as well. So if you have a fox like mine, that likes to lay in ...
