20’s, asexual, non-binary. Sanguine. I’m just your friendly local plague doctor. You can call me Alex. I’m cool with any pronouns. If you like plague doctor cosplay, pictures of my pets, and the occasional shitpost, this is the blog for you
We looked inside some of the posts by plaguedocboi and here's what we found interesting.
You mentioned in a previous post that you shouldn’t cut or burn leeches to remove them, how would you recommend removing them? Do you just wait till they are done?
Ideally yes, it’s best to just wait as they’ll safely drop off on their own when they’re full. If you’re in a hurry and can’t wait, removing them is very simple: slide a fingernail under their sucker to break the seal. It’s easy and doesn’t hurt you or the leech!
Yes! It’s usually because they ate too much and need to get rid of a little, but it can also be a sign of a much more serious digestive problem. They’ll also throw up if they’re stressed out or hurt which is why you should never cut/burn a leech to remove it (as the leech will regurgitate their last meal into you)
I hadn’t seen Muck in a while and was getting worried, but he is back and fatter and more handsome than ever! He let me give him a few pats before he hopped off to attend to his froggie business
This is Muck. He’s a bullfrog who lives at my pond and allows me to pet him. I’ve never met a wild frog so chill before. I used to raise tadpoles and I always wonder if Muck is one of those tads all grown up, and maybe he remembers me
