What Questions Should I Ask When Choosing A Vet?
I Am Getting A Small-Breed Dog(Pomeranian Mix). I Need To Know What Tests/Procedures A Dog Needs Yearly And/Or Monthly To Help Me Choose A Vet Office. The Dog Will Already Be Spayed/Neutered.
You might want to just check their prices for routine things such as vaccination. Remember that if their service is very cheap it might not be the best on offer! If you don't have friends who can recommend a vet to you, ring around to ask for prices and go for the middle range. It would also be good to find out which vets do emergency services 24/7 in your area - this is something that's useful to know in advance, before an emergency occurs!
Dogs need to visit the vet yearly for booster vaccination and general health check. They also need monthly flea treatment and worming every three months, so ask what flea treatments they stock - Frontline, Revolution and Advantage are a good sign!
Teenager Working In Veterinary Clinic?
Hello, I Am 16 Years Old, And I Would Love To Get A Job Doing Something In A Veterinary Clinic. I Do Not Have Too Much Experience In The Field, Though I Do Own A Bunch Of Animals And Care For Them Myself. I Would Love To Apply Somewhere, But I Don'T Know If It Is Worth My While Because What Is The Chance That A Veterinary Clinic Will Hire A Teenager...Do You Think That There Is A Chance That I Could Get Hired, And If You Work In A Veterinary Clinic, Do You Think That Veterinary Clinics Can Hire Teenagers?
Thank You Very Much
There are Veterinary clinics that will often hire teenage workers. If you are mature, and have a strong passion for animals and follow directions you could make a likely candidate for a job. Often some of the jobs included, may be helping in keeping the kennels and cages clean, feeding and keeping the animals watered, Walking or exercising dogs, helping with some minor procedures or grooming, and even some clerical work.
If it sounds like something you might be interested in, find where your local veterinary Clinics are and visit them and ask if they are hiring anyone.
Brampton Veterinary Clinic?
I Am Looking For A Veterinary Clinic In Brampton Where I Can Get My Cat'S Shots, And Get Her Spayed At The Same Time. I Called A Few Places But They Want Her To Get Her Shots 2 Months Before Getting Spayed. But I Can'T Wait That Long Because She Is Spraying, And My Dad Wants To Get Rid Of Her, Unless I Can Get It Done Soon. Any Suggestions?
Call your local SPCA and see if they can recommend a vet clinic that will do it. 2 months is a long time, I had to wait 2 weeks with 2 of my cats, but I have also had cats done at low cost clinics where I didn't even need them to have their shots done.
I Would Like To Become A Marine Mammal Veterinarian..?
I Would Like To Be A Marine Mammal Veterinarian And Be Able To Help Nurse Hurt Or Stranded Marine Mammals Back To Health. I Know I Should Go To Veterinary School And Specialize In Marine Mammals. But, What Should I Do To Prepare? Which Classes Should I Take For My Last Year In High School? And If You Have Any Other Information, That Would Be Great!
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)
Q. I am researching a career in marine veterinary medicine. I was wondering if you have any information on this career?
A. The field of marine or aquatic veterinary science is certainly an exciting and growing field! We are in the process of profiling an aquatic vet on our website. Check out the following links to explore more about the field, colleges that offer programs to prepare students for this field, and professional organizations for aquatic veterinarians.
If you wish to do your own web searches, I'm sure you'll find even more sites. Search for veterinary science or aquatic animals science.

Becoming A Veterinarian?
I'M In Ap Classes At School And It'S My Junior Year. I Plan On Going To Auburn University. What Topics Should I Begin To Study Now? (And I'M A Nerd, I Enjoy Learning So I Kinda Want To Know Out Of Interest.) How Hard Are The Classes In College?
I Mainly Want To Know What My Options Are As A Vet. I Would Prefer To Work At Some Place Like A Zoo Or Really Anywhere That Deals With More Then Just Domesticated House Pets. But I'D Be Okay If I Had To. What Are The Odds Of Being Hired In A Place With Less House Pets? And Last But Not Least, Is The Payment Very Good? It Seems Like Some People Make In The 60,000'S While Some Make A Ton Of Money. But How Is This? I Plan On Getting A Job That At Least Pays 80,000 A Year.
If you want to make at least $80,000 then you can never work in a zoo. Zoo veterinarians are the lowest paid specialty in veterinary medicine and they require more post-graduate training then other veterinarians. Generally, 2 internships each a year long and one 3 year residency is required. During this time you'll be lucky to be making $30,000. After all that, your job prospects are very low and the starting salary for a brand new zoo vet straight out of residency is really only around $55-60,000.
If you become a small animal practitioner then the current average is only $68,000 for a new grad and this figure has remained stagnant for the past few years. It's extremely unlikely that you'll make $80,000 at your first job as a veterinarian.
The drastic difference in salaries is due to specialties. Most board certified specialists (except for zoo vets) make a great deal more than private practitioners. 6 figure salaries for boarded specialists are the norm. Private practitioners tend to vary a great deal based on their location (NY city vs. rural Idaho), and experience (new grad vs. 30 year experience). Practice owners typically make much more than associates but this often comes with a very rocky start and they often take pay cuts when times are tough (like now).
There are some practices that see more exotic pets than dogs/cats. However, these are pretty rare. Most practices that see exotics still see a larger proportion of cats and dogs than anything else simply because people own cats and dogs more than anything else.
Vet school is also extremely expensive and many graduates are struggling to pay their debts on the salaries of a veterinarian. Many are forced to work 50+ hours/week doing relief or emergency work on their days off just to make ends meet. No one goes into vet med for the money... especially not today. It's a terrible investment and unless you have a "calling" you should explore other career options.
