Dog won't pee

8 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
/an/... I need help making my dog pee. The evening before last, our chihuahua/dachshund mix wasn't jumping as much as he does (we discourage jumping, and assumed that he was just behaving well that night). Later, when the girlfriend lifted him off the floor (supporting his spine, we're very careful about this) he yelped and continued to make pained noises for a time. The next morning we took him to the vet and noticed that his walking was not as sure on the back legs. The vet manually moved his legs around, had him walk more, massaged and prodded the area, and later took xrays. In the end, nothing of note came out of it. There was no obvious issues with the spine, his hips, or his joints. Though it's possible it's muscular. He prescribed rimadyl for reducing pain and instructed us to "force rest" him by keeping him kenneled and comfortable. So he's been resting, and has also been eating and drinking normally. At this time, his back legs are tensed, but bend when manually manipulated. His tail works, and he can wag it and lift it. While he did have a small defecation while in the kennel (likely while I was asleep, since he's used to being in the bed to wake us up) he was able to normally defecate a bit later in the morning. I cannot, however, get him to urinate. If I don't support his hind legs, he falls to one side or the other. When I do support his hind legs, he seems unwilling to urinate, possible due to my hand positioning. I've tried supporting him just from the outside of his hips, but I'm curious if he can't beat the "lift leg to pee" drive. I even attempted placing him near a spot where one of our other dogs had urinated, and supporting his back end while lifting a leg for him... Obviously, if he starts showing discomfort or refuses to eat/drink, we're going right back to the vet... but if there's a technique to induce urination, I'd like to try it... Thoughts? Pic related, it's our dog: Dan.

I found this in my backyard. It was a white sphere about the size of a ping pong ball, and covered in a clear slime. It has a fleshy sort of texture and here's a picture of it cut in four parts. It has dirt inside of it, so I'm guessing it's a plant or mushroom of some sort. It also had a purple leafy thing attached to it. Any ideas what this is?

Can anyone tell me what kind of spider this is? I killed one in my bed the other night and found one just like it in the washer after I washed my clothes from the same room. Fucker is hugr and creeping me out. Is it dangerous? Do I have an infestation or is it coincidence? Please help. I'm usually fine with spiders but something this big in my bed? No thank you.

Can we get an animal reaction image thread going? With or without text is fine.

We are looking for a dog to act mainly as a security system and for companionship after losing a family member a few years ago. I spoke to animal control at our pound and they suggested a GSD, perhaps a mutt to avoid physical issues(is this true?). However, my mother is quite worried that it would bite someone or attack other dogs. If we decide to get one from a shelter(aged 1-2 y/o), what training programs would be best? Any other suggestions or questions? Pic related.

Can we have a thread about reptiles and interactions with people? Pic related, my retic hanging out on the couch. Out of the 21 snakes I have, shes the only one who seems to actually try to initiate contact, and is the only snake that will climb up onto people intentionally, or go into a full relaxed curl on someone. I'm pretty big on reptiles being nonsocial and not being scaly dogs or whatever, but this is the first snake I've been around who seems to have this level of awareness. Anyone else with weird reptiles like this?

Help! Hey /an/imals ive had two tadpoles for 6 months now of two different breeds, one being a burrowing toad and the other a common pond frog. now the problem has occurred that as they were tadpoles they were extremely easy to feed, so easy i never fed them. i set up a self sustaining mini ecosystem where the two aquatic plants grew from the sun and the tadpoles ate the plants, all i had to do was change the water. now the common pond frog has turned into a frog and im not sure how i should feed him as he is quite small. store bought crickets will run out and ill have to buy more and i want to keep this self sustaining thing going, if i put bugs in the aquarium they will go in the water drown and not be eaten i cant hand feed him beacuse he is very skittish and darts away when i put my hand near he needs to feed at his own will thank you good sirs and ladys

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-29418983 How depressing. Wild animals are going to be a thing of the past in the not so distant future I feel. No one gives a fuck because these animals don't do anything for them.

I've always liked snakes and am preparing to buy one. Is buying reptiles online a bad idea? Do they arrive unharmed? I know people who handle packages don't handle them with care. Does anyone have any experience with this?
