how can i earn money for my dog project?

I started the process of having my dog become a certified therapy dog but I didn’t realize how expensive it could be to do a good deed! (Between paying test adminstrators, admission fees, filing fees for it to be legal, ordering vests and patches, paying for extra vet services and tests and more!) My hubby is the bread winner in our family, I’m just a stay at home mom/college student so I akmost never have “free spending money”…

Anyone have any fundraising ideas to earn the cash to pay all the expenses involved in our certification process?? Thanks in advance!

How much should I feed my rats?

I am currently owned by two adult male ratties. I’ve been feeding them about 1/2 cup to one cup of homemade dry mix, a teaspoon of dog food, three lab blocks (each), about one cup of veggies, and one or two treats daily. They always seem hungry! If they finish their food, should I give them more? Am I feeding them enough, or too much? One rat is at a very healthy weight, the other is a little skinny, probably because he is super active. Good?

When they are finish one sitting and are leaving the plate then it is enough. Their greed is bringing them back to the plate again and again. But that kind of eating is not so healthy. Give little cheese to the rat who is skinny.

My oldest dog is a bit strange?

Well. She’s 14 years old, and she is very odd. Sleeps all day and all night, but yet when you throw a tennis ball she’s like a puppy again. She eats cat and dog poop. Why does she eat cat and dog poop??? And why does she occasionally stare at the wall with a blank expression?

Dogs can actually develop Canine Alzheimers. If she continues to eat and drink, she should be fine, and just keep her comfortable and happy. If anything changes in her eating/drinking habits, her urination or deification, any coughing, sneezing, throwing up, or unexplained weight-loss, take her to the vet immediately and get some blood work done.

about once a week or two as opposed to a wild dog which I suggest you never give a bath.

How many days after puppies are born should they have their dew claws removed & tails docked?

The breed standard requires that tails be docked.
They are NOT preemies but smaller than usual so I waited a few extra days to make sure they are strong & healthy enough. Is 6 days too late?!

Answer by lilshorty3088
in the first 5 days since they do not have any nerves in those areas yet

How much would a vet visit be for my American Short haired guinea pig?

She has an upper respiratory infection and I need to get her treated immediately! An office visit will be about 40-50$ but what about the medicines/ antibiotics, ect?
Has anyone dealt with this before? Please let me know how much and the outcome, if I don’t take her?
I’ve already separated her from my other pig.

Aww sorry to hear about your piggy it shouldn’t cost no more than $ 25 or $ 30 depending where you live. as a note make sure the person doing the check up on your guinea pig is very knowledge about them cause one year ago my guinea pig had the same problem and they gave her a overdose

Does anyone know the side effects of the anti-biotic keflex (500mg) for dogs?

I have a 40lb black lad that just had surgery on his ear and the vet gave him keflex. He has been really droopy and sleepy lately (doesn’t want to play). I just want to make sure this antibiotic isn’t hurting him, but I couldn’t find much info online about it.

Answer by Katie K
I’ve never given it to a dog, but I’ve taken it. For me, it was a great antibiotic and gave me no side affects (while others have). I’d guess maybe he’s sleepy due to the ear infection. Either way, I’m sure you could call your vet and get his/her opinion.
