    How to feed Ottos without letting others eat it...

    I do not scrape algae off the back of tanks which have Otos. I also feed sinking shrimp pellets right before turning off the lights for the night. My Otos are fat and sassy... even had some baby Otos hatch in my Endler tank. Good luck. Otos are cute little critters. My second generation Otos...

    So sorry to hear about your losses. Do you suppose it could be something in the composition of the container itself?

    Going to the vet....

    Rx Vitamins http://www.rxvitamins.com has a product called Onco Support that might interest you. It has to be ordered through a vet and it's not cheap but I have seen good results.

    Going to the vet....

    Well, I am a parent and I can assure you that all animals in my household receive excellent care even if it means I do without something I want. Quite frankly, I know some people whose children, let alone their pets, aren't cared for as well as my pets. Don't get me wrong, I'm not offended...

    Going to the vet....

    Wow! What a lot Haley has been through! Poor old gal. Please follow the vet's instructions to the letter. Even a few minutes of play can cause a clot which can kill her. I'm confused, did she have her spay surgery yet? Pyometra (uterine infection) can be quickly fatal if the uterus ruptures...

    This article may or may not be of use to you, Akari. It does offer some suggestions for lower cost heartworm treatment. X-rays will tell you more about what stage Haley may be dealing with. http://terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/2008/05/billion-dollar-heartworm-scam.html I have had two vets read...

    Going to the vet....

    Sorry to hear about her diagnosis. I would suggest getting as much information as possible since the treatment can sometimes require very restricted activity... as in confinement to a crate and leash walking. Hopefully her condition isn't that far along. All the best thoughts and healing energy...

    My Cat Pip!

    Pip sounds like a character. I have a black and while long haired barn cat that adopted me when the neighbors got another cat who chased her off all the time. She's quite the climber and loves the top of the barn. Has reduced the rodent population quite a bit... a Very Good Thing!

    Odd quivering in dog?

    I would agree with the suggestions for a vet check. At her age, a baseline blood panel is good to have on file for a geriatric dog. Allergies could be the culprit... food or environmental. Good luck and scritchies to Lady. She sounds like a grand girl!

    Potted Cats

    I've used orange peels to discourage my cats... have to be replaced as they dry up and lose the scent. Citronella didn't seem to phase them.

    55 gallon Endlers!

    I have some of Cichlidnut's water slide loving Endlers... I used to keep some in a tank with RCS. It became obvious that there were fewer baby shrimp in that tank. As soon as I moved the Endlers the shrimp population exploded. Seemed logical the Endlers were eating the wee shrimpys.

    I've found VitaChem to be an excellent product for healing fins as well as overall wellness. I also use Fish Protector with new fish. Good luck you and the lucky fella to whom you've given a new home!

    What brand of dog food is best??

    When Proctor and Gamble bought Natura, the company that makes EVO, I started looking for another dog food. I prefer to feed grain-free, high protein, low-carb. I finally settled on Earthborn... it's not EVO but the dogs seem to be doing well on it. Blue Buffalo was interesting but I couldn't...

    I Owe An Explaination To The People Of Petco

    Gotta love him! Three year-olds are some of my favorite people! In this house, we are dog folk... long time dog folk. The word your darling son seemed to be saying is a perfectly acceptable term to us. That being said, when I acquired a new female dog one of my sons went to school and said, "My...

    corry floating upside down at surface normal?

    I had a peppered cory that would turn upside down and eat from the surface. Could that be what yours is doing?
