    Ancestry-inclusive dog genomics challenges popular breed stereotypes (it's about dogs, but...)

    It's common to encourage people to focus on the individual, rather than the species, when it comes to looking for an avian companion, and here's some research that looked at dog breeds which says the same. Modern domestic dog breeds are only ~160 years old and are the result of selection for...

    New to Birds, not to Pets

    Hello All! My name is Mandi and I am bringing home a Cinnamon Green Cheek Conure tomorrow (he is finally weaned, yay!). I named him Quincy (he is being DNA sexed this week so I hope I chose well haha). I have wanted a bird for years, but I haven't had or taken then time to do all my research...

    Urgent Dot bit my green cheeck conure

    Hello, i think my dog bit my bird. My bird went to the floor and the puppy went after him. Im not even sure if he bit him, since I reacted almost immediately. I dont want to risk it. The thing is I called emergency vets and they said they don’t check birds. The two avian vets in my area (one do...

    My pets' health will be the death of me

    Morgan's stressing me out again. This time it's an issue with her skin. The skin of her ears has turned black, and scaly around the edges, she has blackheads all over her back half, she's always itchy, and she has dandruff. I'm hoping it's just allergies, but she has other symptoms that lead...

    Pictures No one else in the world has the same ink as me

    Hey, Just thought I´d share my ink. It´s simple but unique. I came up with the design concept, and the art was created by my friend (the tattooist). I took Jacobs print with an ink pad and printer paper, it was quite the cofuffle, but I managed it. The paw print is tattooed to scale. He will...

    Long-term effects of early illness in puppies?

    My pittie mix puppy Morgan was born into a fighting ring, to a mother so battle-scarred she barely resembled a dog. At birth Morgan received no veterinary care, and at some point both mother and puppy wound up on the streets, where they were eventually found and picked up by Animal Services. At...

    Urgent cockatiel attacked by dog

    Hey this is my first post here and I signed up so I can get some advice. It was just 20 mins ago, I stupidly let my dog in while my cockatiels are out of their cage. One of them got spooked by something and started flying, which my dog saw and started chasing her. Then my bird got cornered and...

    Urgent Dog bit her!

    My puppy grabbed my GCC and squeezed her in his mouth. No signs of shock or lacerations, but I'm very much concerned about his saliva, and about internal injuries. She has a vet appt tonight. What should I do in the meantime? She seems to be acting normal but is wobbly.

    Introducing Pet Bird to Pet Dog

    Hi there, I have just recently brought home my first pet bird, Mango the Cockatiel. We have a 5 year old mini poodle who has never hurt another animal, but has chased birds in the park (never caught one). His reaction to Mango so far is interest, whining, sniffing the cage, staring, and...

    GCC clawed by dog

    I'm still a little shaken up, but basically what had happened a couple minuets ago was that I was sitting on the couch with my conure on my shoulder. He loves my mom, so when she walks down the stairs, he always goes to her. All of a sudden, the bird took off and my dog somehow managed to swipe...

    My old lady

    The 15 year old drama queen, who's afraid of the parrots squawks! This is Ruby. We adopted her when she was 7. She was let go and given to us under the understanding that we had to have a privacy fence (she climbs chain link like a pro!) and that she HAD to be an only dog. Her last owner had...
