Hey /an/, I have a border collie that yelped out in pain about half an hour ago, has a cut paw but I'm in a snowed in area of the UK so I can't get to a vet. The cut was bleeding quite badly, so we wrapped it up in a bandage to try and stop it. She seems happy enough and content on the sofa but I'm just worried about her. She's not too old, nearly 6 and she's had some pretty horrific injuries that she's gotten over, I'm just scared because I can't get to a vet. Is she going to be ok? Is there anything else I can do? Thanks
Pic is the dog a while ago.

Need some advice.
One of my dogs cries at my bedroom window every morning to let me know he's hungry. It's not a problem because I'm usually up before then, and he prevents me from oversleeping if I'm not. I normally feed my dogs around 5:30 in the morning and a second time late in the afternoon.
Anyway, about two weeks ago I went away for a week and my grandfather was feeding them. He gets up at the same time I do, so I know he was feeding them at the same time.
The problem is that since I got back, my dog's eating schedule seems to be completely off. He kept waking me up at 3 in the morning. I tried feeding him later and it seemed to work (he woke me up at 4:55, which isn't too bad since I wake up at 5:00 anyway). I did this again last night, and the bastard woke me up at 2:44.
I don't know what to do. I can't ignore him because he cries right by my window and he will get progressively louder if I don't feed him. Also I have neighbors close by and I don't want him to wake them

I'm about to finish building my terarrium for a bearded dragon, got everything down, made a list of the light sources I need and so on.
Problem is, I live in a shitty country where it's next to impossible to find a pet shop that has supplies for anything other than a dog or a cat. I'll be importing live crickets monthly, and I already have a guy living in a different city that will sell me a young bearded dragon.
And here lies the issue: I read about UVB lighting and I know they require very specific types of it. Initially I was going to go with a coiled one, but then I read it's actually bad for then, so I scrapped that. Then I decided to go for a neon one, so I found a Repti GLO 10.0 15 W 44 CM. I also found a Reptisun 10.0 that I can import, but that would cost me almost three times as much and I really can't spare the money.
How big is the difference between the two? Is it that crucial for me to get a Reptisun instead?
pic related, the kind of terrarium I'll be aiming for once he's old enough for me to put sand inside.

I have two tomato plants that I'm keeping for a friend since they don't have the room right now. The plants were both kept in a greenhouse before, but since I don't have one, I just keep them inside.
Before I got both of these, they were pretty healthy looking except for a few dry leaves here and there, and also some kind of light spots an some of the leaves. The diseased leaves were nipped.
Now, I've had these plants for about two weeks, and their condition has worsened for about a week or so. The first tomato plant, which stands in my room, is medium-sized and has lots of light spots on its leaves, with some leaves having dried around the edges. I thought this might be powdery mildew at first, but I couldn't rub it off. I've tried dabbing the leaves with a milk/water solution, since I don't have any fungicide right now. It didn't seem to work all too well.
The second plant stands beside the balcony door, which is almost always closed. When I open the door, I move the plant away from it so it doesn't get cold. This plant was about 2.5x the size it is right now, before I brought it home. A large portion of it was cut off before I took it, so it wouldn't break in the car. The leaves on it have had some of the white spots similar to the first plant's, but they weren't as severe. However the younger leaves at the tip of the plant have recently wilted and dried up, so I had to cut them off.
Does anyone know what this might be and how to counter it?

Hello /an/, fa/tg/uy here. I've got a cat. Nice little guy, rescued him from a shelter. He's one year old. Hyperactive as fuck, but he always seems to be shivering while sleeping. I figured out why: I live in Canada, and it's cold as fuck here.
I'm comfortable with the temperature, and the cat is fine most of the day, it's just when he stops moving and lies down, he's not generating as much heat and he gets cold. He sleeps in a cat tree similar to pic related, and in the mornings he'll be shivering from the cold in his sleep.
So, my question: are there any tiny heaters you guys would know about? Something just to warm up his "room" in the cat tree so he's not spending the whole night cold, poor guy.
