Please don't ask for medical advice.

Players of CS are not veterinary trained, they are not certified to give you any kind of medical advice that concerns your pets, strays or wild animals. If you are worried about your pet, it seems in pain, bleeding or physically injured or otherwise, please take it to a vet. If there is an injured wild animal on your property, contact animal control. Do not approach it as it may attack you out of fright and/or pain or transfer diseases. Leave it to a trained professional to capture and care for it.

Bad advice can kill your pet.

Thank you for telling us this and I'm agreeing that the pet can die. e_e

“I don’t know how long
it takes for me to realize that isn’t going to happen,
that she is gone. But when I do I feel all the strength
go out of me, and I fall to my knees beside the table
and I think I cry, then, or at least I want to, and everything
inside me screams for just one more kiss, one more word,
one more glance, one more.” -Tobias

You would think it would be common sense to not post asking for medical advice on a kid's forums -eyeroll-
"Only ignorance! Only ignorance! How can you talk about only ignorance? Don't you know that it is the worst thing in the world, next to wickedness? - and which does the most mischief, heaven only knows. If people can say 'Oh! I did not know, I did not mean any harm,' they think it is all right."

"You shout it out,
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium"

Between school, my pets, homework, art and life I have not been able to get on cs often, so please don't be surprised if I'm not very active.

I can understand "how do I remove a tick/splinter". But there are some seriously sick and injured pets that are posted about here and you would think that people would just swallow their pride (and wallet restrictions) and go to the vet. Any time I sense there's a problem with any of my crew, off to the vet they go because I'm no doctor nor do I know how to playact as one.

Yeah. I recently saw someone on facebook who I only added for gaming. She said her hamster had some sort of disease or something that cause it's cheek patch to swell. She KNEW it would be fatal if she didn't get him to vet ASAP yet still allowed her hamster to die because she couldn't afford the treatment, which only came it to be a couple hundred. A day later, she get a new hamster.
