    Better Wound/Post-Op Treatments...AmeriGel HydroGel Wound Dressing--Safer and More Effective

    Wound care is a huge issue for any pets and especially rabbits given their skin sensitivity. Good wound/post op-care can be the difference between a full recovery versus death from a reinfection or secondary infection. I was never happy with the products for wound care for my bun...but that has...

    Need fish help

    fuzz16 wrote: ^This. Gouramis die very easily. They are slow moving fish (unless startled in which they can move fast but this is bad if you see this a lot) where as danios never stop moving and can be aggressive feeders. While they may not have gone after the Gourami, just their activity...

    My clown loach

    Sweetie wrote: Loaches are like discus in that ANY ammonia levels will quickly kill them. A quick temp flux of only 2+ degrees is enough to seriously harm them, and a quick pH flux of .2 or more can send them into shock. Even a light .25 ammonia reading is enough to stress them to the point...

    Yogurt drops...

    So my bun LOVES Kaytee Fiesta Blueberry Yogurt Drops. There is no treat that she likes more despite having searched a lot and most treats she doesn't even like at all. However, I realize that yogurt contains some things in it that their digestive systems really are not well equipped to break...

    Questions for those of you who feed orchard grass...

    I've noticed different fecal consistency in that it was also 'darker'. I think this is mainly due to the pigments in the grass itself but I can't say 100%. Otherwise, I did not notice any differences. However, I only feed about 30%+/- orchid grass time to time for a little variety as I imagine...

    thumpin

    Some buns will def thump for the sake of thumping when they are happy. It also seems they will thump as a 'learned behavior' as they know it gets your attention and then you give them attention.

    Critical Care Question

    The Critical Care is good stuff. The main difference is the flavor. You may have seen a different brown packaging on another site, which is just the older packaging. When using it, be really careful and go really slow if force-feeding as if it goes into the lungs from being 'forced' it can...

    Sweetie wrote: Honestly, for a full grown loach you want a minimum of 75 gallons according to literature but realistically a 100+ is better as the 75 isn't as wide as many 10in+ loaches would prefer. Keep in mind the larger the tank that they live in the faster they will grow (although...

    fuzz16 wrote: You CAN medicate any fish including loaches. Loaches are among the most sensitive of freshwater fish, however, they can successfully be treated. While formalin will cook them alive (literally burn their skin off), dylox 80 will literally decompose them alive, and malachite...

    My clown loach

    Personally I would wait. IIRC both of those products contain malachite green and so dosing them simultaneously may increase the level too high.

    Fish Help??

    Loches, plecs, and discus are my favorite fish. They are all so, so personable. I had a big tank of fish by my bed with 10 massive clowns (among others) and I would constantly watch them play games and do things that seem way beyond what an average person would think a fish can do. They are...
