    Hi everyone! My little guy just turned 1 this month. He is super active, very friendly and I have had no issues with him! Within the past 3 days I have noticed he is pooping skinny logs.

    Hi all, I'm new on here :). I've had little Yuki for 7 weeks (he is just under 7 months old and we bought him from an exotic pet store).

    Hey guys! Some of you may remember me from a few years ago when I first got on here with my rescue boy Magnum, and later Quillie Nelson, although I don't think I was very active on here while I had the latter.

    So I have finally found something other than her kibble that Prue will eat! I just gave her half a teaspoon of my cat's wet food and she gobbled it down right away. I am excited to have found something else that she will eat, but have a few questions. 1. It is called Purina Pro-Plan Veterinary...

    Hi, we are looking for advice on keeping our newest family member warm as new owners of Norman, an almost one year old male hedgehog. I had planned on using the same methods as the previous owners did on keeping him warm, most resources tell you on acceptable temp range but not the how to...
