What is the safest way to give a dog an abortion?

My lab was raped by a neighbor's dog and I don't want her to suffer the trauma of raising offspring sired against her will.

Sadly I cannot afford a vet so this MUST be done at home.

Anything you do will probably end up harming or maybe even killing her. Let her have the puppies and then find them homes. Having puppies around for a few weeks is really quite fun.

Where do you guys go to learn about frog vivariums? Just dendroboard? I'm looking for a place where veterans/experts tend to go.

I have loads of FAt snails in my garden and I think they'd make great escargots but I'm also worried about parasites. If I took some of the BIGGEST CHONKIEST BLOATMAXED snails in and bred them will the snail babies be parasite free?

How do people get parasite free esgargot lines in the first place?

Are parasites really a problem? I doubt there be anything dangerous that humans can catch and if you don't eat them raw you shouldn't even have to worry about the annoying ones,

Anyway provide some eggshells and food for the population as a thanks.

You’re right to be concerned. There are lots of worms and other parasites that have part of their life cycle in a snail. I’d stay with store-bought ones if I were you.

my broke brother just moved back home with 3 cats in our small apartment. I am now learning what a terrible animal they are.
>don't take baths, they only lick themselves clean
>shed fur everywhere
>climb on every surface, including where we fucking eat and prepare food
>knock over our expensive art and glassware
>meow constantly in a high pitch
>scratch any fabric they can get their hands on, including my brother's suit jackets and our leather couch
>spill water, food, kitty litter, and random garbage all over the floor
and worst of all, the SMELL. The entire house smells like cat. Cat fur, cat feces, cat food, just cat everywhere. With a dog, at least you can be content in knowing that the floor is their domain and they usually sty out of bedrooms and bathrooms(if you train them properly). Cats take up the entire home. They're not pets, they're invaders. Gross, smelly, rude invaders. Cat owners: why?

and worst of all, the SHIT. The entire house is covered with shit. Bird feathers, bird feces, bird food, just bird everywhere.

They're not pets, they're invaders. Gross, rude invaders. Parrot owners: why?

The real problem is that your brother is a bad pet owner and didn't train his cats.

These are the kind of people that shouldnt have pets. They are so lazy they might as well not even have a pet. The only purpose for having a cat is to literally cleanup its shit and fur. But with a dog, you got a someone who gets excited to see you when you get home and someone who will more than gladly spend their time with you unlike cats. He even said it himself
>fucks off during the day and comes to me at night for attention
might as well get a whore
