What dog food?

I've just been doing some further reading around the forum and a lot of people are saying not to use dog 'kibble' with PAH Museli. But the museli looks very grainy and un appetising, more like bird food than animal food! It definately looks like it needs something else even with cereal in it. Or it ...

Could someone advise me on what dog kibble is and what brand to buy? My OH says it's an american term for dry dog food but does that mean the complete dog food or the mixer?

Moulting

I have noticed that my black berkies have lighter brown patches on them, mainly on their bums. They are 11 or 12 weeks old. Is this moulting as there are many hairs all over the hammock and shelf. I can't remember my previous girls (a roan and a hoodie) moulting. I'm worried that this is what's mean...

New water bottle

We have just bought a new water bottle for our girls after my hubby heard it was a good one to get. I and the girls don't like it! It's a ferplast sippy and it wasn't particularly cheap. Our girls don't seem to know what to make of it and are just trying to chew it. It's rather difficult to take off...

Re: Need advice on getting my rat a friend!!

We decided to get her new babies for company and looked up introductions on the site etc. Unfortunately we were going on holiday a week after Pip passed so we decided to wait until after our holiday to get comp...

Re: Need advice on getting my rat a friend!!

Thanks for the great advice guys, unfortunately we lost Squeak to a very fast onset illness on Monday evening. She seemed fine and came out for a treat when I left for work but when I came home she was in her igloo curled up cold and barely breathing. My husdand rushed her to the vets but they said ...

Need advice on getting my rat a friend!!

Our rat, Pip, died last week leaving Squeak on her own. We want to get her some companions and I wonder if anyone could advise us on how to go about this. I have read up all sorts of things on the forum but I'm sure each case is different. Squeak is about 20 months old, i'm sure she was more dominan...
