Re: Recommendations

I might try asking your vet. If meat makes the first two ingredients, I think it should be okay, but I'm certainly not an expert on animal nutrition. These vegetables are good for dogs in small amounts, but in dog food they are usually just fillers (make more food for cheaper). I hear rice is suppos...

Re: Recommendations

It sure can be hard to find the perfect food for our pets. I do want to clear up some confusion though. It isn't grain-free foods that cause health issues, it is foods that are heavy in potato, lentils, peas and legumes. So meat-based foods are still perfectly fine for our doggies, it is foods with ...

Re: Leopard seals?

Most pinnipeds are too large to do well in captivity. They would require too much space and to keep their water clean is far too expensive (using chlorine is unhealthy for animals and can cause chronic health problems). Those kept tend to be those that were injured in the wild, are endangered (and s...

Re: wild fox question.

How coyotes travel depends on the season. During the winter they often travel alone, during the spring and summer you may see them alone but they live in pairs. When their young are old enough they may travel as a group for a short time. It also depends on the location (wilderness, forest, suburbs) ...

Re: Pet jaguar personality?

I've never heard that one, that's interesting and would be quite intelligent. I have read, however, that they possibly use other forms of mimicry and luring to attract prey. They may use their tail as a lure while fishing and they may use specific sounds to interest prey animals into coming closer. ...

Re: wild fox question.

I'm sorry about your peacock. I remember when I lost chickens to a predator I always felt so bad, especially the ones I was bonded too. I don't have much advise on catching foxes, I think our dogs kept them away. Securing the fence should help a lot as well. I know Red Foxes are big, so I don't doub...

Re: Tamarin owners?

How exciting! I have zero experience with tamarins but I did do some research a while ago and to my understanding their care is very similar to Marmosets. Especially the part where they can die from contracting the cold sore virus from people. They are so cute! Especially the Red-handed Tamarins. Be...

Re: Vet/ toy advice

I don't have any experience with Raccoons, but there are a lot of people who can give some great advice. Also, if you look at previous posts/threads about raccoons you can find some great information. I can say that in all my experience studying animal health, no matter the species, neutering/spayin...

Re: Hi hi

From what I've read the best diet is made up of insects (like crickets and worms), ferret food (some people feed cat food), egg, and fresh fruit and vegetables. I've also heard of owners who supplement with baby food (such as turkey or sweet potato flavors) and pre-killed pinkie mice. This is just w...

Re: are ukc or akc registered wolfdog breeds are legal in LA?

I'm no expert either, but from my understanding at least the recognized breeds (like the Czechoslovakian Vlcak) are considered completely domesticated and are legal in all 50 states. Some areas do not allow "dangerous" dog breeds, which may include breeds like the Vlcak, but generally thos...

Re: is merck vet manual a good source?

The merck manual, from what I've heard, is a great source. I've used veterinary manuals before and they can be a bit complex, with so many possible causes for one symptom it often takes tests that only a vet can preform to know for sure the cause of an issue. Zoos often have some great wildlife care...

Re: Discrimination and worse?

This is a very helpful thread. I don't currently have a fox, but I've seen so many people discriminate against almost any kind of animal. People even are rude about us have poodle mixes for our allergies, calling them expensive mutts that shouldn't be bred. It really hurt because I love my dogs so m...
