The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services is in charge of keeping our natural environments, well, natural. Part of this job means regulating what species of plants and animals are allowed to cross state lines to hopefully eliminate or decrease the likelihood of invasive species. In 2012 four species of snakes were added to the list of "injurious" species in the Lacey Act. Find out if your pet snake is one of them.
Inclusion Body Disease, also known as IBD in pet boids, is a fatal disease that is easily spread from snake to snake. This disease has many symptoms but cannot be cured. Find out how to protect your collection in "Snake Inclusion Body Disease".

Rabbits are sensitive little creatures that can unfortunately get a variety of scary diseases but most pet owners will agree, watching their pet have a seizure is one of the worst things they can see. Knowing what causes seizures, what can be done about them, and what to do if your rabbit has a seizure is good knowledge to have before your rabbit has a seizure (but hopefully he never does). Read Seizures in Pet Rabbits to arm yourself with knowledge.
