A Question About A Veterinarian?
When I Grow Up I Wanna Be A Vet Because I Love Animals And I Wanna Help Them. When I Got To College And Do My Classes To Become One, Do I Have To Write A 1000 Page Paper??? My Brother Is In College And He Said Certain Majors Have To Write 1000 Pages Or Something Like That. So Would A Vet Have To Write A Humungo Paper??? Please Answer! Thanks:P
1,000 pages is an exaggeration, but If you go to college expect to write a long paper at the end of your college career regardless of you're major. There are very few majors that do not require the students to write a huge paper at the end of term, and the longer you're in college studying for your degree the longer you can generally expect that essay to be.
Working towards a degree to become a veterinarian you should be expecting to write a long essay at the end, for exactly how many pages that will depend on your school and professors. If that's what you want to do though then go do it, by the time you're done you'll have more than enough to write a book and doing the essay will be nothing.
I Need Information About Veterinarian?
If A Real Veterinarian Answer My Question, It Would Be Great. However, If Anyone Knows About This Job Very Well, It Would Be Great, Too!!!
Please Give Me Accurate Answer
(I Want The General Veterinarian Or Popular One)
- Salary (Starting, Average And High Salary)
- Education Required
- Growth Rate
- Job Security
- Work Time (Hours) Required
- Stress, Other Extraordinary Work Conditions
- Fringe/Other Benefits
- Things That You Feel Are Positive/Negative About The Career
- Type Of Person Is Right For This Career
- Why You Want To Pursue This Career
Salary: Starting (assuming you're not doing an internship or residency) = $60,000.
Average overall = $105,000
Average for internships/residencies = $25,000
The high is more difficult because it greatly depends on whether or not you've specialized and whether or not you're an associate or a clinic owner. Owners and specialists will make more, generally on the order of $200,000. Associates will typically be less and stay closer to the average.
Education: Minimum of 6 years. 2-4 years of undergraduate work (most people do 4) and 4 years of vet school. Internships and residencies are required if you want to be a board certified specialist, but only 1% of vet students go onto a residency.
Growth rate: Veterinarians are in demand right now. Especially in food animal medicine and public health areas. Growth rates look good as people are spending more and more on their pets. Zoonotic diseases are becoming more of a concern which opens up more jobs for veterinarians in government and military positions.
Job security: Also very good. Animals will continue to need vaccinations, and treatment in the future. Additionally, as I mentioned before, the jobs in public health areas are only growing, not going away.
Hours required: It depends on what area you've gone into. Most large/mixed animal practitioners who work out in the country are on call 24/7. Practice owners normally set their own hours. Associates typically work 45+ hours/week with Saturdays very common. If you work in industry or government, it'll be closer to 40 hour weeks with no Saturday work. But, for some of the government positions you might have to ship out at a moment's notice to deal with contagious disease outbreaks or similar emergencies. If you work in academia, you'll have a shorter work day as well, but many of them do stay longer, or come back in the evenings to help students with review sessions and questions. I've even had one professor hold a Saturday review session and they're usually in their offices on Saturdays catching up or grading.
Stress: It can be stressful, you're basically in charge of an animals life. When you're doing surgeries, treating diseases or even simple vaccinations, their care is in your hands. If something goes wrong it can be stressful. You also have to deal with stubborn owners, cruel owners, or just plain stupid owners. You'll have to deal with people wanting to put animals to sleep simply because they bark too much or shed too much. Other extraordinary working conditions on the large animal side, often times you're out pulling a calf in the snow or rain or out there in the heat in the summer. There's also a lot of heavy lifting, potentially dangerous chemicals and exposure to potential zoonotic diseases like rabies.
Benefits: You're a respected member of the community, you get discounts on dog food, lots of free stuff from drug companies including heartwork preventative, flea and tick preventative. Discounts on surgeries, medications and vaccinations. Often times free bording while you're on vacation.
Travel: Veterinarians have a lot of potential to travel, depending on the area you go into. Even small animal clinicians get to go to conferences every year (there's on in Vegas every year). If you're on the public health side you'll get to travel all over the country responding to/investigating possible threats and outbreaks. There is a program called vets without borders that lets you volunteer your time oversees. Many other areas send you all over the country to lecture to various groups including other veterinarians, veterinary students, medical doctors or the general public.
Positive: You can pretty much do anything you want with this degree. It's a fascinating field that keeps expanding as we're discovering new things. There's huge potential for growth and your salary isn't as bad as people seem to believe it is. You get to help animals.
Negative: There's always those pesky owners, like I mentioned before that don't follow your recommendations. Refuse vaccinations or tests and then get mad when there dogs keeps getting sicker. They complain they have no money for X-rays of poor fluffy's chest, but then they drive away in a brand new BMW. There is a lot of schooling to go through and it's very difficult to get accepted. It's also very expensive. The average 2008 graduate, graduated with $130,000 in student loan debt.
Type of person: You need to like animals as well as people. You need to be comfortable with science and medicine. You need to be ok with blood, and other bodily fluids. You need to be ok with dissecting animals (in school) and most of the commonly performed procedures (spay, neuter, declaw). You have to be able to analyze a lot of information, pick out what's relavent and discard the rest. You have to have good people skills both for dealing with clients, but also technicians, receptionists, assistant and other
My Dog Is 5Months Old When Should She Be Neutered And Is This A Good Thing.About How Much Is It And Will This Keep Some Of The Stray Dogs Out Of My Yard Do You Know When They Are In Heat And What Is She Doing When She Sniffs Another Dogs Pee
You can Spay your Dog as early as 8 weeks old, yep this is a fact ask any VET.
I recommend doing it ,the sooner the better, It actually helps the pet population from 1 less litter of pups.
Also it will reduce cancer risk for your female pup, the sooner the better the reduction of risks for other female health issues too.
No, stray will still wonder around ,but if you have a good fence your Dog she be protected, make sure she has water and shade/shelter.
Unless your planning to breed a Dog I think All Dogs male or Female should be neutered or spayed....
Find a good vet in your area, ask others who have gone to the Vet how they liked him, if your in Phoenix I can give your some names... just email me...
When Dogs sniff pee and poop and other areas, the best way I can explain it is, they are reading the other Dogs "business card" each scent is different so your Pup is checking who stopped bye!
A great book to get is Cesar's Way or Dog Speak to learn more on how a "Pack" talks with unspoken signals....
"There are no bad Dogs only bad Owners"
Good Luck and Congratulations on your new Dog

What To Know About Getting Dog Neutered?
That May Sound A Wee Bit Ignorant/Generic.
I'M A First-Time Puppy Owner, And My Little Guy Is Getting Neutered Next Week. Because One Of His Testicles Hasn'T Dropped, They Have To Do An Internal Surgery As Well As A Regular Neuter For The One That Hasn'T Dropped.
I'M Not Sure What To Expect For Afterwards. Should I Be Prepared To Be Home The Following Day With Him?
I Really Like And Trust Our Vet, But I Didn'T Speak With Her Directly, Just The Assistant Who Told Me What To Do And Not To Do The Day Prior To The Surgery.
How pets recover is different from one dog to the next, and while some need several days of rest and may seem distressed, some greet their owners the same day bouncing around and acting like surgery never even happened! The best advice is to monitor your dog closely and accommodate his needs.
The night he returns home with you, and up to the next 48 hours, he may act a little differently. That same night, he may seem very sleepy, may whine or act more dramatic than usual, and may even seem a little groggy (or "drunk" as some people like to call it). He may also experience some mild nausea, gas, vomiting, or diarrhea while the anesthesia and everything wears off. Generally as long as everything is mild and not severe or happening for more than several days, this can be considered normal for some pets. You should definitely contact your vet if your pets GI upset is severe or persists for over 48 hours.
The incision for a neuter is typically just over his scrotum. Since your dog is cryptorchid (has a retained testicle), they will either have to enter his abdomen to find it or it may be close to the skin in his inguinal area. He will have two incisions for his procedure. The incisions may seem a little inflamed and red for the first few days, and some seep a clear - clear/red discharge. This is normal to see post op. Keep an eye out for any severe inflammation or discomfort, and let your vet know if there is any heavy bleeding or pus discharge coming from the incision. You do not need to cover the incision or even clean it, but if there is some dried blood or mild discharge, you can GENTLY wipe around (not on top) the incision with a warm, damp washcloth. Keep the incision as clean and dry as possible; no swimming/bathing and try to discourage laying in dirt or grass.
He will be discharged with an e-collar most likely. This is very, very important, and he needs to wear this for a minimum of 10 days following his procedure. He may not like it initially, but most dogs will get used to it. A pet's first response when something is itchy or painful is to lick to chew at that area. Even with us, think about receiving a cut, and how tempting it is and how good it feels to itch and scratch at it once it starts to heal. The e-collar will prevent him from licking the incision, which if he does in excess, can create a moist, warm environment perfect for infection. He may also damage the incision by pulling out sutures or hurting the fragile, healing tissue. I have witnessed pets needing an additional surgery due to severe damage they have caused to their bodies by chewing and licking. You do not want to go through that!
Your vet should prescribe medications to reduce inflammation and control pain. At my hospital, we give an injection during recovery to help with this, and owners do not need to start giving them anything until the next day, so check with your vet or tech to see when you should give his first dose.
You may feed him a small amount that night, but only a small portion, and ensure he does not eat it too quickly. You can resume his normal feeding schedule the day after. Be sure you do not feed him after midnight the night before his surgery! (Just like humans, too).
You will want to make sure he stays calm and receives adequate rest. He may feel better after a few days and want to run around and play, but you need to step in and discourage this. Imagine if we were getting the same procedure done - we would be in bed for several days! The tissue needs time to heal, even if he is feeling 100% better. The most activity he should be getting for 10-14 days after his procedure is leashed walks to go outside to potty, and light play indoors (small games like doing tricks or tug-of-war). If he is a smaller or medium sized dog, also discourage jumping up onto things like beds and sofas, and if he is very small (toy breed sized) try to carry him up stairs.
Your vet tech should tell you everything I just did at discharge and will be able to provide you with other infofrmation about your pet. When I discharge my patients, I always notify them if there was any sign of GI upset so they know if they should expect it. I also can let them know other things I may have noticed specifically about their pet that may help in the recovery process (for example, some pets are very very vocal and dramatic even with adequate pain control on board - this can be distressing for owners if they don't realize their pet is just trying to get their attention and is generally upset, not necessarily in severe pain!). You should also ask your tech the nearest 24 hour vet hospital is located, just in case of an emergency should they be closed. The odds of that being necessary are low; most puppies do just great after their procedures and feel fine in no time! Hope everything goes well with your puppy!
Exotic Pets Vet!!!!!!!!!!?
What'S An Exotic Pets Vet & What Does It Take To Become One???
An exotic vet is a veterinarian who specialises in exotic animals, rather than the typical cats and dogs. The basics would be the same as becoming a regular vet, only you would be studying different species.
How Much Is Pet Smart Vet Visits?
My Hamster Has A Big Patch Of Fur Missing And I Was Going To Take Her To The Vet Tomorrow But I Wanted To Know How Much It Would Cost For Pet Smart To Look At Her And Identify The Cause Of The Missing Fur. I Don T Think You Need Insurance But I Don T Have Insurance For My Hamster. Please Help
Banfield or however it's spelled at Petsmart is convenient if you need immediate weekend care within normal hours. They arn't cheap by any means. My vets have lost a few customers to them due to it being more convenient while also being sold a wellness plan. Turns out their wellness package doesn't include emergencies in their offices or any other vets including another Petsmart location. If you animal dies for any reason & your still in their contract you are still obligated until the contract expires. I took my kitten there for sudden diarrhea on a Sunday, I brought my own stool sample & had a coupon for a free office visit & exam as it was a promotion for a Petsmart/Banfield newly opened facility. It was still over $70-. She was treated fine, I was treated like a number...though they kept SMILING. They gave her an antibiotic for 10 bucks & trimmed her nails for $50...Yeah, believe it ! Other then that they did vitals which was included with an office exam. I wouldn't have them as a primary vet. My vets clients have returned to him though it's a drive. Theve learned first hand how a chain vet clinic is far less superior. I saw a red flag when I was filling out the initial paperwork while waiting...stupid inane questions thrown in. I noticed a surplus of people around with no real interest or handling beyond a,,, may I have your ticket, smile. It was gross to me, but my kitten got her needs met nonetheless.
