    I dropped my bunny off at the vet this morning for his first teeth trimming. Also the first time he has been under anesthesia :( I forgot to ask before I left and I couldn’t get through when I called. It has been about four hours since I dropped him off. How long does it take to trim/file a dwarf bunny’s front teeth and molars? Should I be worried?

  • How to get bunnies back in cage??

    So I adopted two bunnies two days ago. The first day they stayed in their hutch as they were too scared to leave. Yesterday they spent about 6 hours outside in my garden.

    So I adopted two bunnies two days ago. The first day they stayed in their hutch as they were too scared to leave. Yesterday they spent about 6 hours outside in my garden. They explored all of it and got a lot more comfortable. About 3 hours ago I let them out as I won’t be home all day but I need to leave in half an hour and I cannot get them back into their hutch!! They’re both 2 years old and very very fast. I’ve tried lots of fruit and vegetables, they aren’t interested. I’ve tried their normal food. They aren’t interested. I tried to pick them up and they just run away. I tried holding out a towel to try and steer them in that way but they just stand outside the hutch then run past me. I’ve tried throwing the towel over their head to grab them but they’re too fast and run before the towel hits them. I don’t want to chase them or do anything to scare them but I’m out of ideas on how to get them into their cage. I don’t want to leave them out all day as another animal could get into my garden and hurt them. Anybody have any ideas??

  • Can you own a capuchin monkey as a pet in new jersey?

    Best answer: Maybe, many states strictly ban them. Where they can be permitted,it means demonstrating 1000 hours in primatology and there are requirements such as inspected keeping facilities, 'just to qualify' for a special permit.

    Best answer: Maybe, many states strictly ban them. Where they can be permitted,it means demonstrating 1000 hours in primatology and there are requirements such as inspected keeping facilities, 'just to qualify' for a special permit.
    What it means keeping a capuchin: Imagine a spoiled brat child on steroids with unlimited energy that has frequent temper tantrums.
    They can scratch like a cat, and draw blood in biting. They have the strength to pull a human ear off.
    While very affectionate and social, they need extended time out of cage and that means monkey proofing.
    They cannot be left alone more than 4 hours for their 20 year life so kiss vacations goodby. They are a 24/7 sort of pet.
    A simple cold will run over $1000 in qualified vet care. They escape and it is up a tree and not coming down til they are good and ready.
    How do I know this, we kept one from 1962 until his untimely death from lung infection 13 years later.
    As much as I would love the little $hit, I would never keep another. We even got lucky with a primatologist raised animal,properly weaned and separated from it family, most are not like that and suffer emotional issues.
    My take, monkeys and other primates just belong with their own kind in the wild.

  • Do you think animals ever try to be funny?

    Best answer: I don't think many try, no. They just are. But I think some studies revealed that when a dog does something stupid and gets a laughing response from its owner, they tend to try and repeat the behavior because they just know they are making their owner happy.

    But I think some studies revealed that when a dog does something stupid and gets a laughing response from its owner, they tend to try and repeat the behavior because they just know they are making their owner happy. A lot of funny things that animals do are rewarded with kisses and praise, so some animals know to repeat these actions to receive love and praise.

  • Can I give my rabbit romaine lettuce?

    Best answer: Yes. Rabbits like all kinds of greens. Iceberg lettuce is not recommended because it is not very nutritious, but it isn't actually harmful.
    There are lots of back yard weeds that they can eat too.

  • Best pet to have in college?

    Best answer: If you have space, and can afford the cage, then consider a pair of rats, guinea pigs, or even a ferret. The cages can be expensive though. Less expensive would be a hamster.

    Best answer: If you have space, and can afford the cage, then consider a pair of rats, guinea pigs, or even a ferret. The cages can be expensive though. Less expensive would be a hamster. Something often overlooked is a pair of budgies - they are actually very interactive and social pets, and can be taught tricks. A large cage for them isn't cheap, but within your budget. All pets require the initial set up costs and food, and even the occasional vet visit. Before selecting a pet, make sure that there is a vet in your area that can see it and treat it as necessary.

  • Is it bad to have a pet wolf?

    I’m 14 and I’ve been living with my big brother for three years now. It’s out in the country and he has about ten acres and he has a pet wolf for almost 10 years now.

    I’m 14 and I’ve been living with my big brother for three years now. It’s out in the country and he has about ten acres and he has a pet wolf for almost 10 years now. When I moved in he told me a lot about it and here you have to get a permit but he went through that process and got the wild wolf puppy. He says that animals should be free to be wild so he never got the wolf neutered and he gets to go outside whenever he wants and sometimes he’s gone for days. My big brother has goats and a lot of chickens and ducks and geese here but he said he taught the wolf not to eat them and sometimes when he comes back other wolves come to cuz there’s a lot of wild wolves here in these woods and sometimes baby ones come to.

    I currently own 4 medium sized dogs, a Turtle, 2 Dwarf sized hamsters (in separate 40 gallon tanks don't come after me) and a Small Fish tank with two Tetra fish. In the past ive had more hamsters, a snail, Crabs, Hermit Crabs, and another outdoor tortoise. Im looking for an animal I can snuggle with that isnt too big that I can keep in my room. I dont have that large of a room and its already decently full with one of the large metal 'Garage' shelves holding the 3 large tanks I keep my smaller animals in with the top shelf being used for storage, a Twin sized captain bed (since a full takes up too much space, a Desk that can fold into an easel, and a small dresser on the side. Sorry for the extra info I guess im just trying to give as many details as possible. Ive thought of a Rabbit and realized that not owning one (as much as I want one) is the responsible option. I havent tried Guinea Pigs and Ferrets are adorable (and funny as hell) however I just have no clue! Reminder that I have dogs and I dont want anything that would be in the tiniest percentage of unhappy/scared. Thanks y'all!

  • We think our rabbit is pregnant?

    Best answer: They should have both been fixed. I had two "bucks" who were labeled with a B on their ears at the pet store. Well, they were Netherland Dwarfs. Took them to be fixed anyway. They were Does (females). No wonder they didn't get along. Your mom needs to get the female fixed now so they get along,... show more

They were Does (females). No wonder they didn't get along. Your mom needs to get the female fixed now so they get along, there won't be babies every 5 minutes and the female doesn't die of uterine cancer by the age of 3. Boys also stink up the house sometimes with their own skunky smell (it's like a cat spraying territory but skunky and sometimes like black tar that won't come off of the cage floor, etc).
