We are not Vets, the only way to get a definitive answer is to stop asking for an explanation to every answer or bit of advice you get and take the poor thing to the vet.
[quote:3fvxofe7]And what's the point of starting a thread if you're going to disregard all advice given except for what you want to hear.
Oh ya and I am guessing that the vet that you take your dog to is also and exotic vet right? If not the you need to take her to a proper vet.
Mmmk. I'm going to divert this topic, my apologies to the admins right away. But I'm sure some may agree with me.
To everyone I just quoted (and others replying to juicebox's posts), this is inappropriate. Let her ask questions without attacking her at every post she makes... if she doesn't ask, she won't learn. People are entitled to mistakes, and yes this does involve an animal, but she is learning
. If she doesn't follow your advice, you do not have the right to attack her on a personal level. She is allowed to ask for advice and then to use it as she wishes. A basic principle of autonomy, let her exercise that right.
To those of you who are adults: Be a role model and be respectful. You are in a position with many of the individuals on this board to be a very helpful guide. By personally attacking adolescents, you're not proving anything other than you can't seem to handle being an adult yourself.
To those of you who are teens & adolescents: People are trying to help you. Its common to think you're right, but remember that experience is key
The breeders especially. Also, just because someone else is slandering another person, doesn't make it okay to follow suit. These are judgement calls that you learn with age, and people will like you more once you figure them out (trust me).
/ends rants of fustration with obnoxious comments as of late. I'm learning myself about hedgehogs and weeding through all this junk/slanderous comments is downright annoying
Please continue back on topic.
(p.s: juicebox: if no one else sees runny eyes in their hedgies, like you sometimes see normally in dogs or cats, take him to the vet just in case)[/quote:3fvxofe7]
I didnt attack her, as you are attacking me. I simply stated the same facts that everyone else had in such a way that she could understand what we were all trying to imply with every other post. and yeah i believe that if you want to come on here, ask for advice then blatantly disregard that advice to the detriment of the defenseless animal, then you get what you get. If you dont like what i have to say, ignore me. You are not the person i was directing my comment towards and i dont really think it is your place to say anything about what i have posted. There are several admins and mods, none of which have said anything to me about the particular post you pointed out. Once again, and this doesnt just go for you, if you dont like what i have to say, then ignore me.
