Re: i have a 5month old puppy and her tummy is very runny
Loose stool in dogs is a super common problem. There is a short answer and a very, very long answer. The short answer is to try a bit of canned pumpkin in the food when you are noticing the problem. Use one tablespoon full in a small dog and two in a large dog in each meal. That is probably the best, most reliable remedy that is natural. Sometimes just feeding cottage cheese and rice or chicken and rice for a day or two will do the trick too. If those things do not help and the soft stool is continuing, it is probably best to seek the care of a vet.

Land snails are mainly herbivorous, which means they eat plant life. There are a few snails that are carnivores, but chances are that your snail in not. Snails love to eat just about anything you would put in a garden salad. My recommendation is to start with some romaine, green leaf or even ice burg lettuce. Snails tend to like the softest and wettest part of the plant. If you have an herb garden that produces far more herbs than you need then try picking the newest leaves off of some of your herbs to see if they like them. Apples and carrots can also be a favorite of your pet snail. The key to their diet is to see what grows naturally around the area where you found your snail and bring that to them. During the winter you will have to rely heavily on the produce in your refrigerator to keep them well feed. Remember if the snail is eating all the food you gave him or her then you need to leave more out for them. Slightly rotten food is just fine. They are not terribly picky as long as you give them a food they enjoy.
One last tip: During the spring and fall when your grass is the greenest make sure to cut a big handful of grass for your snail to eat. Both land and the common garden snail love grass and most leaves.
What do water snails eat?
The common water snail is predominately an herbivore. Water snail mainly feed on the algae that will naturally grow on the inside of your fish tank or fish bowl. If you are putting a new snail in a fish tank then watch out! If you have any vegetation in the tank that you are fond of then do not put your snail in the tank. Larger snails can wipe out all plant life in just a few days.
Snails also eat algae along with the microscopic creatures that naturally live in a healthy ecosystem. In most cases you will have to supplement their diet with fish food. Along with fish food cubed up apples and carrots are a favorite. It will take a day or two for the apple or carrot to sink to the bottom. Once on the bottom and partially decayed your pet snails will thank you for the treat.
Tip: If you have more than one snail they are going to reproduce. To help minimize the number of snails in your aquarium you can simply cut back on the about of food you feed your little guys.
"Beetles eat all kinds of food. Most are specialists in few kinds, but some, like ground beetles, eat lots of things. Most beetles eat plant parts, either leaves or seeds or fruit or wood. Many are predators on other small animals. Some eat fungus, and there are a bunch of species that eat dung. Sometimes the larvae eat different foods than the adults do."
well i have delt with dogs giving birth and having to hand feed the puppies my self , and out of experiance one the mother gives birth they probably will refuse to eat or even leave the area with their puppies, so all you can do is have a bowl of food near by along with a bowl of water she will get up eventually , as long as she is feeding her babies you do not have a problem ,if the problem persits then phiscally take the bowl to her and see if she will eat , but honestly do not worry they will eat and usally when no ones around thats because natrual instints of a mother they will pertect their young and everyones a treat so they will not leave unless they feel safe and usally only for a second, dogs are funny that way , they will not even go to do their nesesities . so do not worry after a week you will see her go back to normal and leaving her puppies to eat and do her nessesities .
Newborn Puppies grow so many times faster than adult dogs and a healthy puppy can burn twice calories compared with an adult dog, so it is more important to provide them complete nutrition to fulfil their energy requirements.
