Did you rename your dog? Was it hard to make them listen to the new name? Some owners give their dogs stupid names, hence I'm asking.

i always rename them and it's always fine
you can trick them with the old name for a while but they eventually forget

My brother did it with a 6 mo old german shepherd. Took 1 or 2 weeks for him to learn it, I'd say. Since then it's been as if he never had a different name.

Your mileage obviously could vary with an older dog/less clever breed.

>inb4 call the vet (I have)

Anybody here use Seresto collars? Do allergic reactions look like this for them?

My cat has had food allergies (the vet thinks) for a while, but he's had two bald spots near his shoulder blades show up recently even on his 'restricted diet' food the vet recommended. Now this two-quarter sized waxy, scabby, flaky spot's shown up - but only on the back of his neck, near the two bald spots that are healing. It does not circle his neck, and I don't see irritation elsewhere. He's

My school has an tradition that certain group has to take care and maintain a small pine that grows outside our campus and they get thrown in to the see if it dies. Useally ppl just steal it but thats kinda old news so i though that i would poison it slowly and watch them struggle to maintain it over period of couple days with them knowing what is to come. Any advice?

Each day slip just a little salt into the soil. Do this for four days. On the fifth pay a black man to steal it.

Put horse manure on the ground where the tree grows and water it every few day. The tree will soon die, guaranteed

I recently took in two ~7 month old cats, one is male, the other female. I got their rabies vaccinations yesterday, so now it's finally time to get them both fixed. The vet I've been seeing sent me the estimates this morning (pictured). I have the money to pay, this isn't an issue of not being able to afford my pets, but these numbers seem kind of crazy. It shouldn't cost that much, right? A quick Google search says a spay costs $200 max.

I was hoping you guys could help me clarify if this vet is charging way too much and if I should find another.

Why don't you just neuter the male? There isn't a real good reason to neuter a female.

A neuter is cheaper than a spay because they just slash open the sack and rip the balls out.

>There isn't a real good reason to neuter a female.
Until it goes into heat and is annoying as fuck or gets an infected uterus from not carrying a litter and it costs 5 times as much to spay.

From my experience working for a local vet, yes, this is high. I'm not sure where you are located but that may have something to do with it. Something else you may consider: is the vet that gave you this estimate a 24 hour emergency vet? Is it a popular chain (VCA for example)? Both of those will charge much higher prices given their convenience and availability of staff at all times. My suggestion is to definitely call around and find a cheaper vet for the surgeries.

Cuz they grow to be 8 feet long and they drown people and eat them.

There's something about being killed by a fish in murky, shallow water that's somehow so much more horrifying than being killed in the open ocean by a shark.

Pick her up and get her home safe and secure, might wanna set up an emergency bed until you can contact a vet.

I'm sure it's very painful but dogs are different in relating to pain than us.

Get in touch with a vet asap, you may be able to get your doggo a cast and pretty decent recovery.

I've seen similar happening before but we took the dog to a kind of animal hospital. This was during the day, when places are open, though.

And this better not be bait

They're really cute but they seem skittish and dumb. They don't seem very interactive at all.
