I have a purebred miniature dachshund. He is about 5 years old. A few nights ago I heard him barking at an animal (probably a stray cat) from the patio, but heard no signs of struggle or fighting. I went out to tell him to stop and shoo him inside. Now for the past few days he is having trouble jumping through the doggy-door and occasionally wheezes when he breathes. He seems tender on his 6th or 7th left rib, an inch or two down from his spine. About 10% of the time that I pick him up he yelps in pain, the other 90% he seems fine. Today when I picked him up I felt one of his ribs crack. (very tiny subtle little crack like a joint subtly popping). Right now I suspect one of his ribs may have been, or still is, partially dislocated. I do not think it is a disc issue, as he does not react when I flex or extend his spine, and palpating along the spinal column's intervertebral spaces had no reaction. The only time he yelps is occasionally when I pick him up, or I press that spot on his rib. I am not able to go to a vet until Tuesday, any thoughts or suggestions? I did the best I could to massage and soften up the muscles on his back and rib cage, and they definitely aren't spasming like they were before, and he seemed to walk a little easier when I was done.

dachshunds are very predisposed to having back issues due to how long they are

try not to let the dog jump up on furniture or climb stairs or anything like that until you do see a vet.

I got a mobile vet service with a working X-ray machine in their van to come by and X-ray him. Nothing seems broken, no cancerous growths visible. He seems to be getting better and hasn't yelped when I picked him up since I made the post. Hopefully the pupper will keep on truckin' in this doggy dog world.

So about 8 weeks ago I got this puppy. He was orphaned cause the mother was old (lost all females in the litter, they came undeveloped and dead along with regular male puppies) and she dried up after half a month feeding them. He's a mutt and was conceived by accident (neighbor's dog jumped the fence), both sire and dam being mutts of our regular regional pariah-type.
Now that his little paws are getting bigger and he is taking on a doggier shape, he's starting to freak me out. That's cause yesterday I was watching a documentary on dingos and the narrator talked about how dingos have rotating wrists and can grab stuff with their paws and that's one of the differences between dingos and regular dogs. Well, my puppy's rotate almost til they're facing up and he uses his front paws in opposite directions to hold literally everything. He can climb like a fucking monkey.
However, he looks very doggy (chest wider than head, flopped ears, wide muzzle) and Australia is on the other side of the world (Brazilian here). Is it possible that a random mutation made him like that? Or maybe I can chalk it up to puppy flexibility and him having learned the clamp-grip from my cat (he uses the scratching pole just like the cat does, can't rule out this possibility)? If it's just puppy flexibility, is he going to be normal and containable as an adult or now that he's learned I'm fucked?

Hello /ani/

I have a problem. Last week, a poor dying skunk crawled its way into a space beneath one of the side doors of my house. There's a basement window down there as well. It fell into this ditch and was basically spraying itself continuously for a whole night. The next morning it smelled in the whole house and my mom thought it was a gas leak of some kind, until eventually they found the dying skunk in the ditch by the side of the house, took it out and it was taken away.

So even though the skunk never got into the house, it was so close to the window and door and sprayed so much, it still smells, about a weel later. We have gone to town with scented candles and deodorizers, and I am thinking about nuking the whole house with ozium soon. The smell mostly covereg, but there are still a few pockets where it is noticeable, near the stairs and corners of a few rooms. And outside near the ditch, the smell is still quite pungent.

I am wondering if anyone has any sort of advice dealing with this? (honestly not sure if this is the right board, any suggestions are welcome if you think there might be a better place to post this)

My biggest concern is that the skunk sprayed so much in the ditch, that it might require some sort of more advanced/professional chemical removal. I don't want to nuke the whole house with ozium if the source of the problem is not going to go away. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading, /ani/

Maybe spice it up a bit and let humans fight against animals? Against bears and tigers and shit. Obviously the humans would get a weapon but not something like a pistol or rifle, rather a dagger or something similar where you need to get up close. There would be 1vs1 but also a group of humans vs pack of wolves and such. What do you get when you win you may ask? A million dollar? 10 million? No, the big price is more valuable. Your life. And honor. And prestige. And the biggest dick in town. If you lose you still win because you get eaten so no need for a funeral, saves money.

Guess I need to get Dana White on the phone.

Chihuahuas are healthy as fuck, especially the old type (deer-headed) like the ones OP is taking care of.

Miniature dogs, ones that have been bred down in size from regular-sized dogs (like min pins, mini schnauzers, mini bull terriers, mini poodles, etc.), are shit both in temper and health.
Chihuahuas, on the other hand, are a primitive-type breed, and as such have good temper and long lifespans. I've met 15-year old chihuahua that had yet to go grey.

Nah, they're just usually poorly trained. Because they're small people let them do things big dogs wouldn't get away with. They are allowed to climb you and yap and be shits too often. It's rarely in their nature any more than most other breeds.

Tonight I met a racoon. First I gave him my apples. Then I gave him a glass of water which he spilled. So then I got a cup of the lower grade water (because I was afraid he would go away) and held it for him to drink. Then we played together. He kept biting and I told him "NO MR. RACOON". Then we went to the park and I found him some food that was in a trash can he couldn't get into. It was chicken and noodles with white sauce. He liked the chicken a lot but I made him try the noodles and he liked it. Then a homeless man came and he hissed at the homeless man. He's very protective of me. Then we went home and I gave him the rest of the apples. Now he won't leave me alone. He keeps scratching on my door but I have no things to give him. What do I do? I love Mr. Racoon.
Okay, he scratched on the door again so-
NO WAY. Okay, I made him a cup of coffee and he didn't really like it so I left it outside for him. He comes scratching on my door again and I let him in because he seemed cold. He goes straight for the bathroom and I see the toilet water and think, "Okay, he wants to drink some water,". He then proceeds to get into the toilet and I keep telling him "YOU HAVE TO LEAVE MR. RACOON,". Then he SHITS IN THE TOILET. He's outside scratching on my door. But I already gave him all my food, water, a cup of coffee, a full meal, AND let him use my toilet. So I'm ignoring him. I don't know what to do. Will this racoon keep coming back here?

Hey guys so I've had some awesome experiences raising this snake. She is really cool so I'm trying to make a really in depth post about how great they are and how you should have one.


Yes. Constrictors are generally pretty chill people if they're raised in captivity and not fed in the same cage they're in. They are large, but that solves many problems about finding the snake. When they're 10 feet long you won't say "where's my snake" but rather "I found my snake" followed by the sentence "She was everywhere". They don't see people as food because of some weird long-standing evolutionary hoobajoop about not evolving to see people as prey and the tendencies of predators not to prey on other predators that are high in the trophic pyramid.


What you gotta feed them are rats and/or mice. When they are big you should always videotape the feeding of live rabbits to the snake so as to horrify everyone and make sure people think you're horrible.

The general rule is that if the snake looks like he's about to choke and that you don't think he/she will swallow it, it's good.


Dude just put the snake down anywhere seriously. She'll go to a dark cozy place when it's light out, and will move about when it's dark out. I've left her in a paper bag near my computer for the last 2 days because it's warm here and she's just staying there.


No, large (boa) constrictors have one default setting in captivity: chill. Their other settings are "stop hurting me or I'll bite" or "leave my babies alone or I'll bite". Their psychology is basically "I think I'll lay here for a while", rinse and repeat.

Honestly, after struggling with your post and going home and crying a little: I think he likes it.

Every time I try to take him out he slithers back under his log. When it's warm out he still likes to chill under a log. When he's well fed he stays under his log. The only time he comes out is to regulate body temperature and look for food. After I give him food, he returns to his log.

In the wild he would have to deal with stress like being found by a predator under his log. Or having to search for food (leaving his log).

So he has less stress and isn't smart enough to write a treatise on why his thoughts and actions deserve to be free. Also: less thumbs.

For an animal who spends 99.99% of their time moving from one log to the next, he has it pretty good.

What would make it better though: a bigger cage with more logs. He's not like uncomfortable now, but I think for my peace of mind I'd rather get him into something fairly vertical and nice to look at while he slithers from log to log.

the best thing about living in scotland is the wildlife.
just the other day i was driving into my estate and this beautiful deer was hopping around in the field steps away from my home.
in my garden, there's a fence that seperates us from a forest. we've had foxes and squirrels come to visit us lots of times. whenever i go to visit my boyfriend at night there's around 3-10 foxes running all over the streets and in the fields.

moving to glasgow when i finish university, i wonder if there will be less wildlife.
one time when i got the train into glasgow there was a deer walking along the tracks. it scared me so much incase it got hurt, to this day i dont know if it walked away or not. i like to think it did.

Anyone else see any animals but live in a city?

I once saw a family of deer in Hollywood and a dead possum at school.
Occasionally, I'll walk around town and find a dead raccoon and when the figs are in season, a few will pop up in the backyard at night, fat-assed and bumbling around because they're so fat, they can't sustain their weight on the branches.
And then you go to the beach and see baby sharks swimming around, baby clams, tiny crabs, weird worm-like sea things, stuff like that.
There are kites, hawks, seagulls, and Canadian geese in my area and some friendly-ish squirrels as well. Also, a lot of snakes.

I've got two indoor/outdoor cats, male and a female both mixed. Lately my backyard has been getting visits from a big neighborhood tabby. He's super friendly and chill and isn't afraid of people or other cats. He's also too well fed, clean, and social to be a stray. My cats however are terrified of him and will growl and act territorial. They've swiped at the visiting tabby and run, but the Tabby isn't interested in fighting at all.

Is there anyway to get my cats to at least tolerate our neighbor? He's really cool.

I guess the next time he's chilling with you outside you could pet him with a little blanket or towel and put it where your two kitties spend most of their time inside. Then they'd get used to his smell? Possibly. Only thing I could think of.

Maybe it'll make them angrier.

Cats can be shits in a similar way to humans, it's part of their charm. Cats will manipulate you and it may be that this guy beats the fuck out of the other locals when no one is looking. It may be that your cats are the horrible ones but you don't know. Cats spend a lot of time doing stuff when you're asleep or at work. Just be careful not to fuck over the cats you've committed to or to drive them away.
