Dog has been sneezing blood off and on all day, snuffing out through her nose constantly and shaking and freaking out. What do?
21 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Yeah I know, I'm just frustrated. My grandmother did lose the dog because the vet near them wasn't open and the other one closed down, and I really did love that dog. But then again, it was her fault that she keeps feeding her dog beef jerky. Vets are also humans who need their break...
I'm also not very surprised about the high suicide rate for vets, when I was at a vet for my kitten, I have seen so many animals go into the vet office and come out in a box, and just the thought of it keeps making me tear up. It's a very depressing job.
Euthanasias can be hard, but can also be rewarding when it's a patient who had a good long life and gets some relief from suffering. The hardest euthanasias are treatable conditions but the owner has money constraints, or even more frustratingly the owner is rich as fuck but believes they know more than the vet and delays care until it's too late.

Other difficult things vets have to deal with are every acquaintance you've ever known messaging you "just a simple question" on your day off multiple times a week, and then you're the asshole if you say no. Also clients who don't listen, staff members who create drama (lots of big personalities in the vet industry as you can imagine), needing to justify every level of care and then being called "money-hungry" when you are just trying to practice good medicine and make a living.

If we can address some of the issues facing veterinarians there may be more who can start to practice in harder-to-reach areas
>liquid dishwashing detergent
>for bathing
What the fuck, just use actual dog shampoo in your emergency kit.
Yeah, gets pretty annoying though as a pet owner when the $400 you spent the 1st time on bullshit products that you know are upcharged 1000% don't work, and the vet then tries to give you the same exact shit that didn't work before, while saying you're a bad pet owner who maybe shouldn't own a dog if you have a problem with it.. Just my personal vet experiences anyway
At least here in Germany it's organized that it is mandatory for every practice to serve as emergency vet on standby by for some days every few weeks.

Choose a cryptid to make real anons. Why would you choose it? What would the implications be?

Personally, I'd go for bigfoot. If only because the sheer insufferability of squatch hunters after finally being vindicated after decades would be just glorious. The entire world having to acknowledge that these complete fucking weirdos were actually right. I'd go with the loch ness monster, but that one would just be so fantastical it'd probably break reality or something.

My personal theory about tsuchinoko is that some japanese explorer brought back a blue tongue skink from australia and everybody shat themselves over it.

Anyways I would make the skunk ape real. I just think it's really cool and would make Florida's ecosystems even crazier than they already are.

fuck off grandpa.
Whale sharks are nowhere near close to the size of the biggest true whales. Leedsicthys got as big as it did because there was way more oxygen in the ocesn back then

You drank superjuice, giving you the power to handle any animal safely (you can no-face the deathroll of a crocodile or the charge of an elephant). At the bottom of the bottle is the deed to a 50 hectare land containing every type of common habitat and climate, as well as a coupon for a pet of your choosing. What do you get?

For 25 hectares of the property, I will make a semi controlled environment with hundreds of chickens, and observe their behavior. Other 25 I don’t know.
Depends, what flavor is the superjuice?
super lemon-ade

Call the vet and tell her it's still happening. She might want do a CT scan to check the liver and kidneys.
I doubt they went to the vet
You need to give back the meds to the cat. Even though the cat seems to be getting better, it's just the medicine doing its job. Keep giving the cat its meds until you finally run out. Then go back to the vet to see if your cat is fine now.
Rehome it if you are too poor/cheap to provide proper care.

Moths are cute
14 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
in my room, i have to check my couch for crawling moth maggots before i lay down to sleep. i also check the ceiling, walls, doors and anything near the couch where maggots could crawl easily. somehow i got a moth problem going in just my room because i dont clean ever, literally sit in piles of garbage with other small flies too and small antlike beetles or something. the moths will get out of control, dozens active flying around every fucking where and constantly landing on me and in drinks and food etc. they seem so dumb i tellthe, leave me alone and i wont kill you. and i will give them a warning lite swat as a threat. they never learn, so i take great pleasure, when driven to absolute annoyance, in slaughtering rhem en masse one after another until the chaotic frenzy of moths is hewn down like a field and the dead are splattered all over the walls. but they manage to breed still, hence the maggots constantly lurking around. it sucks, i know its gross, but i cant take care of myself very well, certainly not my room which i see as an even further extension of myself so even less cared for than my own body.

Anybody have any experience with silent heats? Vet suggested Inga may have already gone into heat and said they could examine her the next time she's in to see if she looks like she's gone through puberty yet. Thinking back, she did thicken up quite a bit during her paw recovery and she was unusually sensitive about letting us wipe her.
Harder to ctrl-f on the catalog.
congrats on your new pokemon, anon. teach it cool stuff.

If your dog doesn't belong to one of the 16 Based Breeds its not a real dog and needs to be purged.

they only covered 121 breeds though? like, what about something like the molossus of epirus, which is at least 2500 years old, but also obscure enough that it probably wasn't in their sampling
Dingos didn't evolve in Australia. They arrived there thousands of years ago with humans
They don't have to be a Canis familiaris (eurasian wolf desdendants) to have been a domestic dog
Could simply be a different species that was also domesticated
Oh, I thought you meant among the 12, sorry

>Akitas are unironically Pitbull and Doberman killers

What? A Pit is a psycho and the Doberman is giant next to an Akita. I can't see the Akita doing this.
Depends. Can you fulfill the dog's needs enough, to not be an aggressive mauler, or not?

This anon is pretty much said everything you need to know.
Akitas was breeded for fucking BEAR HUNTING.
They need a strong human presence, and a lot of training / patience to be good family dogs. If you want one just because it looks good, but didn't do shit with it, and let it roam in your garden you basically make a very dangerous retarded niggdog, what is almost as stupid and dangerous as an untrained pit/husky.
>we was retard
A Doberman is a gian next to an Akita? Have you even even seen a dog in person?
