So if I get a pet friendly apartment looks like I'm getting a rabbit that would otherwise get abandoned. He's the spitting image of the rabbit I had when I was little (white mini rex with black spots) but I had a girl. He's already 5 years old and not neutered, but he's never done anything that unaltered male rabbits seem to be famous for. He's legit the sweetest thing in the world, I love him. :D And my parents said they'll cover my rent down there as long as I study so once I get a job he can get spoiled.

The sad news is I don't think the 90 will fit in the car so I may have to downgrade the goldies to a 55, but with the 6 of them it should work, just be a little tight. .

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

thats from a bit ago, when it SEEMED to be getting a little better. it looked worse today.

I watched this procedure several times. In the course of a month a lab came in to have it done twice, he got it from always shaking his head. They basically pop it and bleed it out (really messy, messiest surgery ever) and then stitch it up. You'd have to find a way to stop the scratching or it can keep happening over and over.
And yea it definitely looks like that. :p

Yeah we'll keep an eye on it. Poor thing. i REALLY think she's got allergies but my mom is just like NO ITS PROBABLY FLEAS :/

gonna research food allergies for dogs, and maybe invest in better food.


ALTHOUGH ear mite drops seem to help a bit.

Aw her ear looks like a microwave popcorn bag. Sin. Hope it clears up soon!

Olymp! A bunny, and a mini rex no less. Best breed IMO. I think a mature bunny would make a WAY better student pet than a young rambunctious bunny. Baby bunnies are cute but.. Never again. They're not THAT cute, destructive and messy and hormonal. No thanks.

Soy and corn are the biggest allergies I think for dogs. You can find soy/corn free foods fairly cheap, doesn't have to be super duper stuff but they make average quality for an okay price.

Yea he's so friendly considering that he's alone in a basement all day. He was my friend's older sister's but she got bored of him after a week and is now at university. She came back, took him out of the cage, posted a photo on Facebook saying they were reunited at last, and put him back and never took him out. My friend tries but she's ridiculously allergic to him, and she tried contacting rabbit rescues a few times but they ignored her and she gave up. I was gonna take him before but my parents were like no! And now I'm like yes!
He's the bestest, I always do his nails whenever I go over cause they never get done. I could go on forever about him cause he's the best. :p

Two of our cats can't eat any foods with corn/cereals in them because they just vomit them straight back up.

Some dogs can also be allergic to certain meat proteins (or something like that) and so their owners have to switch them onto alternative sources like bison, venison, salmon etc.

I have noticed a big difference in the appearance of our animal's coats since we moved everyone onto higher quality foods. It is more expensive, but a lot of the time you actually end up using less food on some of the higher end brands.

Oh carp! Are you able to get that poor pup to the vet?
I forgot what it's called. But the vet will have to drain it. Is it hard or soft/squishy?

Also, I always make sure I have a plastic cone-of-shame on hand for moments like these. 1 will make sure she doesn't do harm to her ear.
