Re: Where can I find a vet to get my babies their shots and fixed

Welcome to the forum. I don't know where you are in Illinois, but there seems to be quite a few exotic-animal vets in the state. Here are a few from a quick search: Elmwood Park http://www.midwestexotichospital.com/ Lisle https://www.nessexotic.com/ Champaign http://animalhospitalatthecrossing.com/v...

Re: Weird Blood Levels

Not necessarily. "Tying up" is common enough in horses and sighthounds. It can end a Greyhound's racing career if the damage is severe enough.

What color is her urine? Exertional rhabdomyolysis can turn it red to coffee-colored.

The best single resource I've ever found for dealing with "hopeless" conditions is "Keep Your Pet Healthy The Natural Way" by Pat Lazarus, 1986 edition. lazarusbook.png https://www.amazon.com/Healthy-Natural-Keats-Pivot-health/dp/0879833882/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1548616455&a...

Re: How To Keep My Dogs Away From Flies & Mosquitoes?

I mix my own fly spray for the horses, equal parts original scent Avon Skin So Soft bath oil, white vinegar, and water. My holistic vet gave me the formula. It reeks but it really keeps the flies away.

I don't know if I could stand it sprayed around my windows.

Re: How To Keep My Dogs Away From Flies & Mosquitoes?

For flies outside I've had good results using fly predators: https://www.spalding-labs.com/ I signed up for scheduled deliveries throughout fly season, you just scatter them around fly breeding and hatching areas when they arrive. It seems like the most effective fly traps all stink, so they're best...

Re: Dry shampoo

I asked a friend who's a professional groomer, wildlife rehabber, and longtime pet raccoon owner about bathing raccoons. 0429130814a.jpg She says she's never had to bathe a raccoon or had any of theirs get into anything that would require washing to remove. Scully has had tree sap get on her fur a c...

Re: my beagle?

When I was working in Greyhound adoption, many newly arrived dogs had fleas. Greyhounds are sensitive to many chemicals that are "safe" on other breeds, so my vet recommended using Advantage at half the recommended dose on only about half of the dogs. Since fleas are so mobile, every dog d...

Re: what is the easiest exotic cat to own?

Even "domestic" cats can do a lot of damage if handled improperly and/or unsocialized. Wild animals don't "turn on" people, they simply act like the wild animals they are. You can never, ever forget to respect the animal, and never, ever forget that their reflexes and reactions a...

Re: BOBCATS. To declaw or not to declaw, that is the question

Based on my three-plus years of daily hands-on experience with wildlife-rehab bobcats, do not declaw. The only time Scully ever snagged me with a claw in over three years was as a kitten, when she jumped up on my shoulder and I didn't see her coming. She slipped and reflexively saved herself from fa...

Re: Dew Claws

If they're not seeing dewclaw injuries they're not examining coursing/racing/hunting Greyhounds. While running an adoption program I fostered and placed over 400 dogs, almost all of whom had raced or been in race training. Broken, torn, and fractured dewclaws were common, along with plenty of other ...

Re: I might get another fox and question

My rats were so big only one fit in the trap at a time. They did get smaller as the population decreased, but I never found more than one at a time. I think once it has a dead rat lying across the electrode surfaces the trap has to be emptied before it will fire again. Adult chickens wouldn't fit th...

Re: I might get another fox and question

When I last had a rat problem, I got one of these: http://www.victorpest.com/victor-electronic-rat-trap-bm240 It reliably killed three rats a day. I'd set it in the morning and when I got home from work I had a dead rat. I'd reset it, check it before going to bed, and had rat #2. Reset again, and wh...
