    Special Needs How do I encourage my senior to eat more?

    Maybe she's tired of it. You can give timothy hay or orchard hay. Try switching types. I also give my girl a Timothy hay ball which she loves and keeps her busy. Type in orchard grass hay ball in search. Make sure it's 100% hay, no fillers.

    Cage Hospital cage

    My Abby needs to be spayed for overactive ovarian cysts. I have very little room for even a small cage in here but I need to separate her from her buddy during the healing process. Any recommendations for a small comfy cage that fits on a coffee table?

    Cleaning Shop vac?

    Thanks Kelsie! Yeah I bought that bissel sweeper pro based on his vids. You get too close to the edge of the liners and it goes in. Then you need to pull it out. Also the collection tray is small. Need to empty it more frequently. Wish it was larger capacity as I need it for the carpet too that...

    Cleaning Shop vac?

    Does anyone know of a good shop vac or vac with wide hose that picks up hair without clogging, or if it does, it's not often and is easy to unclog? Prefer bagless and reusable filter. Sweeping then vacuuming is too much for me. Tia!

    Supplements How to use benebac powder.

    She isn't losing much weight actually probably gains some more. I hold back on the ones she currently hates thinking she's sick of it. She's difficult this way. Their treats are wheatgrass. I don't buy manufactured treats even if ok. I prefer fresh for them.

    Supplements How to use benebac powder.

    It's to hopefully get her to eat more too. At times she's not a big fan of eating but she checks out ok.

    Supplements How to use benebac powder.

    Nothing is wrong with Bella, except doesn't drink water on her own no matter what I do/use. 4 mo now. Plus she's on and off with everything. I sprinkled an included spoonful a couple times.

    If not, try Kms hayloft timothy hay. Lowest calcium and all my gps have always loved it.

    KMS is the best imo. Oxbow is backup when kms is out of stock.

    Pellets Changing Pellet Brands: Sherwood Pellets (Yay or Nay?)

    Love KMS. They've been having issues with stock due to covid and agricultural stuff so for now you can order 2 lb or 5 lb bag. My friend ordered 2 bags and got 1 then after 2 weeks the 2nd one. Best to go on subscription so you're always in line. I used oxbow timothy hay adult and they didn't...
