Best Vet In Southern California?
I Have A 5 Year Old German Shepard And Since She Was Little She Has Had An Ear Infection. It'S My Elder Sisters Dog, So She Would Always Be The One Taking Her To The Vet And Such. Now That She Has Moved To Go To College, I Am The One Taking Care Of Her Vaccinations. My Sister Would Always Take Her To Different Vets Around The Area, Even Out Of The Area And Would Pay A Great Amount Each Time For Treatment To Cure Her Ears. Unfortunately, Non Of Them Worked. I Live In Ventura, California. She Also Always Bites Her Nails. It Makes Me So Sad Because Now Her Ear Infection Is Getting Worse. She Is Always Shaking Her And Crying. I Just Want To Be Referred To A Good Vet Because I Am On A Tight Budget And Don'T Want To Be Going To Doctor After Doctor. I Wouldn'T Mind Paying If It Is A Lot, But I Just Want Her To Stop Hurting. Or If Your Dog Had This, Can You Recommend Anything?
Thank You In Advance.
I can tell you of an AWESOME VET in Ventura County, AND she is a GSD Breeder and is considered the BEST GSD vet around!
Dr. Cynthia Binder- Conejo Valley Vet Clinic (805) 495-4671
I have used that vet Clinic for the last 30 years, she is an incredible addition to this group.(They have 8 veterinarians in their dog/cat/pet division- and 5 Veterinarians in their Equine division)
They are located right off the 101 freeway, in Thousand Oaks- not far from Ventura.
Where Is The Best Vet Clinic In Los Angeles?
I Have A 2 Year Old Maltese Who Has Fleas. I Wanna Take Her To A Really Good Pet Clinic, But I Don'T Know Which One. Is There Anyone Who Lives In La And Has A Favorite Vet Clinic? I Need Some Recommendations For Vet Clinics With Low Prices And Great Staff. I Want A Veterinarian Whose Trustful And Someone That Both My Dog And I Will Love. Thanks
Best Vet Clinic and Low Prices don't go hand in hand.
You want a cheap vet you will get a cheap vet. If you want a quality vet then expect to pay for it.
Though for fleas you can use anyone, you don't need a medical degree for that.
Thousands of Vets in the Los Angeles area.
I really like All Pet Medical Center in Granda Hills (aka ChatOak vet clinic)
Just got a quote for a dental(simple cleaning no extractions) on my sisters Collie of $500-$700. So as you can see quality is not cheap.
Sims 2 Pets Question?
I Just Installed The Sims 2 Pets, And When I Went To Play It, None Of My Neighborhoods Were There. There Was Only The Option To Create A New Neighborhood. I'Ve Had The Sims 2 And The Sims 2 University For A While And Never Had This Problem. Any Ideas?
Are you clicking on the Sims 2 Pets short cut to play? If so, you must have somehow covered up your old files. If not, play through that link. If all else fails, uninstall all of your versions, and re-install them in their order of release, for example, install the sims 2 original, then university, then sims 2 pets...if you can keep from bouncing around, usually that prevents your files being covered up accidentally! Hope this helps!
A Pet Store Question?
There Is This Pet Store Called Family Of Pets That Sells Puppies. And On Their Website It Says That They Get Their Puppies From Breeders. And They Have Dogs Mixes There Too. Should I Believe That Those Puppies Come From Breeders?
There is a big misconception about pet stores. Not all of them get dogs from puppy mills. There is one down the street from my house who gets dogs from reputable breeders, takes care of the dogs, and has a vet come by once a week to make sure they're all healthy. HOWEVER, even if a dog is healthy and came from a good breeder, it's not going to have the best temperament coming from a pet store. Those dogs are locked in teeny tiny cages all day, ignored, sleeping in their own urine and feces, not to mention overpriced. No breeder with a conscience would sell to a pet store. So pet stores, whether they claim to get their dogs from AKC registered repuptable breeders or not, are not good places to get pets.
And "designer dogs" are just expensive mutts. They have two dogs of different breeds have puppies, slap a fancy name on them, and sell them for way too much money. You could get the same dog at the humane society for 1/8 the price.
Marine Mammal Veterinarian.?
I'M A Senior In High School. I Would Really Like To Become A Mmv, What Is Necessary In Going About This?
To become a Marine Mammal Veterinarian, you need as much experience working with animals, or vets, as you can (marine mammals, if you can. try volunteering at a marine mammal stranding center); go to college to take care of pre-vet requirements; go to vet school (one that at least has a teaching hospital for exotic animals, and/or one that has a residency/internship/externship with marine mammals); after vet school see about an internship, get an advanced degree, or find a job.
I hope the links below will be helpful.
How to become a marine mammal veterinarian:
To become a marine mammal veterinarian, follow the basic curriculum and schooling of other veterinarians, but try to gain practical experience with marine mammals by volunteering at an oceanarium or zoo. A few veterinary schools are developing specialized course work in the area of exotic animal medicine, including marine mammals. For more information, contact the American Veterinary Medical Association and the International Association for Aquatic Animal Medicine.
How Do I Get Into Aquatic Animal Medicine?
Advice and words of wisdom compiled and adapted from various responses by various IAAAM Board Members…
Welcome to the wonderful world of aquatic animal medicine! Just by asking your question you have joined a diverse group of people with interests in better understanding and caring for the oceans, lakes, rivers, streams and ponds that cover over 70% of our globe’s surface and the countless creatures that inhabit them. Humankind has left tire tracks on the planet Mars in our search for water- - the most essential nutrient. And the Hubble telescope has given us glimpses of the far reaches of space and time- - but we have yet to visit the deepest realms of the earth’s most precious aquatic environs. So keep asking those questions and enjoy the ride. Even the Hubble has been visited by an IAAAM member - a marine mammal veterinarian turned astronaut. Who knows where the journey may take you?
Unfortunately, there probably is no straight-forward or typical answer to achieving a career in aquatic or marine mammal medicine. First, no veterinary college has a comprehensive program for specializing in aquatic or marine mammal medicine. Most veterinary colleges (which is typically four years of dog, cat, cow, and horse medicine) sometimes have a sprinkling of non-domestic species classes that may include poultry, pet birds, lab animals, pocket pets, amphibians, reptiles, fish and sometimes marine mammals. After graduation the options are numerous, and include additional graduate work in fish or marine mammal medicine, private practice, or even a job at a facility with aquatic animals (though rarely does a new veterinary graduate get this type of position right away).
Another option is to gain a year or two of hands-on private practice, and then apply for one of the internships in aquatic medicine that are available at a variety of facilities across the country. These include internships at places such as the National Aquarium in Baltimore (marine mammal, amphibians and fish), Mystic Aquarium (marine mammal and fish), Florida Aquarium (marine mammal and fish), The California Marine Mammal Center (all marine mammal), Delta Extension and Research Center (mainly catfish), or Prince Edward Island University in Canada (mostly fish and shellfish), etc.
In the mean time, we would suggest that you get as much education and practical experience along the way as possible. This might involve volunteering at aquariums, rehabilitation facilities, research labs, or aquatic animal facilities.
Finally, you may find useful the following publication put out by the U.S. Government (in print and on the Web) which gives lots of information on the future of particular careers and includes salary projections. Keep in mind that there will be listings for generic titles such as marine biologist or veterinarian, but very specific titles are not listed. This resource is usually kept in the Reference collection of all libraries. It's called the "Occupational Outlook Handbook". The Web version (and a quarterly update) is located at http://stats.bls.gov/ocohome.htm)

Why Become A Veterinarian?
I Mean, What Are Some Good Reasons To Become A Vet? Besides Being Around Animals All Day, What Are Some Other Advantages Of Being A Vet? Do You Get Good Hours? Do You Get To Work With Others, Or On Your Own? Also, How Much Money Do They Make?
What are the Pluses and Minuses of a Veterinary Career?
The pluses and minuses of a veterinary career vary. They depend on the stage of a veterinarian's career, the type of practice, and the veterinarian's likes and dislikes. The primary reward for all veterinarians is the personal satisfaction in knowing that they are improving the quality of life for animals and people.
Veterinarians who are employed by government agencies, laboratories, colleges, and commercial firms often have responsibility for large health programs and may manage large numbers of people.
Most veterinarians work in private clinical practice, which has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Veterinarians in private clinical practice gain satisfaction from helping owners keep their animals well and from treating sick and injured animals.
Veterinarians in private practice serve a variety of animals. This is especially true in companion animal practice because of the increased popularity of pet birds, small mammals (e.g., hamsters, gerbils), and fish. Today, a veterinarian may be treating llamas, catfish, or ostriches as well as cats, dogs, horses, cows, hogs, sheep, and goats.
Veterinarians usually treat companion and food animals in hospitals and clinics. Those in large animal practice also work out of well-equipped trucks or cars, and may drive considerable distances to farms and ranches. They may work outdoors in all kinds of weather. The chief risk for veterinarians is injury by animals; however, modern tranquilizers and technology have made it much easier for veterinarians to work on all types of animals.
Most veterinarians work 50 or more hours a week; however, about a fifth work 40 hours a week. Although those in private practice may work nights and weekends, the increased number of emergency clinics has reduced the amount of time private practitioners must be on call. Large animal practitioners tend to work more irregular hours than do those in small animal practice, industry, or government. Veterinarians who are just starting a practice tend to work longer hours.
Private clinical practitioners who own their own practices determine the nature of their practice and set their working hours. Because they are self-employed, most private clinical practitioners choose to work beyond normal retirement age.
Q. What inspired you to become a veterinarian?
A. I decided to become a veterinarian in the seventh grade. Although I have always been a small-animal practitioner, I grew up on a dairy farm where I helped care for our cows and calves. I helped with milking the cows morning and night. We also raised sheep, and always had dogs and cats on the farm. I participated in 4-H and FFA, and exhibited my cattle and sheep at the county and state fairs.
I was impressed with the skill of the veterinarians who came to our farm to treat our animals. Sometimes we would have a cow that was down and could not get up. The veterinarian would give a bottle of intravenous fluids and almost immediately the cow would rise to her feet. Another cow may be having difficulty giving birth to a calf. With a little help from the veterinarian the cow would soon deliver a newborn calf.
I remember the veterinarian coming when needed, no matter what time of day or night. I was also impressed with how much care and concern they had for the animals.
Q. What has been your funniest case?
A. I have always been amused when some of my dog patients eagerly, and with a great deal of excitement, come into the examination room and promptly jump right up on the examination table.
Q. What is the greatest challenge of being a veterinarian?
A. Communicating effectively with the owner of an animal is the greatest challenge for a veterinarian. It is particularly difficult when the animal has a life-threatening disease or injury. It is important for the owner to understand what is going on with the condition and what the various options are for treatment. It becomes even more challenging when there is no effective treatment option available.
Q. What is the biggest reward of being a veterinarian?
A. The greatest reward for me as a veterinarian is being able to help both animals and people. It has been particularly meaningful when I have been able to save the life of a pet, not only for the sake of the animal, but also for the sake of the owner. My actions may save and extend the human-animal relationship, which means so much to both.
I vividly recall Sarge, a brown and black German shepherd, whose severely fractured leg I surgically repaired, or the turtle whose broken shell I wired back together. The owners of both of these animals were extremely happy that their pets were saved.
What are some advantages and disadvantages of the veterinary profession?
The advantages of the field is that you are helping our animal friends live better lives or if you are in the research field you are helping us find cures for people and animals.
The disadvantage is that even with medicines you can't always help them and in some research, animals may have to used to test the effects of new drugs so that other animals and people do not have to suffer.
There is also one aspect that is rarely covered in school and that is the business part of any career. Private clinical practice is especially stressful because of the investment in equipment, medicines and more, so a strong grasp of business concepts are helpful. Other fields rely on grants which is also stressful, so good communication skills are needed too.
What do you like most about becoming a veterinarian?
That would most definitely be the fact that my job is working with animals that I love. Looking after them and seeing the happy faces of owners and pets alike is the most rewarding thing about being a veterinarian.
Rewards come in various forms, and not just cash.
National surveys show that being a veterinarian is one of the most fulfilling careers. Knowing you are serving both animal and human wellbeing is a major benefit that few careers offer. It's a career you can be proud of, and enjoy doing throughout your working life.
The pay isn't bad either. In 2006, salaries for Iowa State graduates in veterinary medicine averaged $58,500.
Veterinarians work long hours during their job. They normally work sixty hours at week. If they work as solo practitioners, they can work weekends. That is the schedule of a veterinarian.
A veterinarian earns a pretty good salary. The normal earning for when they start their job is $35,800 a year. As they gain experience, their salary moves the average $66,590 a year. Finally, their ultimate salary can be $118,430 a year. That is the earning of this job.
The salary for research veterinarians in various areas is as follows:
Average in Academia (medical schools/universities): $98,329 per year
Average in Industry (pharmaceutical/biotech): $116,866 per year
Average in the Federal Government: $82,494 per year
Average in Uniformed Services: $78,233 per year
Average in the Nonfederal Government: $66,885 per year
Average for Others (self-employed, consultants): $101,290 per year
The typical salary range of a clinical veterinarian is between $35,807 and $76,655 per year, with a median annual salary of $59,038.
Note: All the above data originally was provided by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine in 1994 and was escalated to reflect 2002 dollars.
The average salary for American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine-certified laboratory animal veterinarians varies based on place of employment as is as follows:
Average in Academia (colleges/universities): $154,103
Average in Research Industry: $193,388
Average in Government: $146,974
Average in Hospitals/Nonprofit Organizations: $163,849
