Canine Epilepsy Is It Life Threating Im So Worried About My Poodle This Is The 2Nd Time She Had A Sezure
The first thing i would do is talk to my vet about the seizures. Make sure that your dog is not ingesting something that might cause seizures such as chocolate. Keep a diary of the seizures, the date and time that they occurred and how long they lasted. You may find a correlation to something that may help determine if the seizure is linked to anything in particular. A friend who has an epileptic dog has determined that he's more prone to seize when bad weather is coming and at that time she increases his medication.
You may want to read more about seizures and epliepsy here:
http://www.canine-epilepsy.com/ they have a email list that may provide more alternative methods of treatment. Read as much as possible on epilepsy and begin to ask hard questions. Remeber that you must be your dog's advocate on this and much of the standard medication for this is dangerous at best. You must detemine what course of treatment to seek and whether the benefits outweight the risks.
Finally, if it is determined that the dog actually has idiopathic epilepsy (meaning that the seizures have no known cause and are probably inherited) and you have not already done so, make sure to spay or neuter your dog. Genetics plays a strong role in idiopathic epilepsy and it's devistating to pass this on to other owners.
Is Skin Cancer In Canines Contagious To Other Canines?
Is Canine Skin Cancer Contagious To Other Canines?
No. The only contagious cancer for canines is Canine Transmissable Venereal Tumor, or CTVT, which is sexually transmitted, so it can be prevented by spaying/neutering.
What Do I Say To The Emergency Vet?
My Dogs Ate Chocolate And I Already Asked A Question On That You Can Answer It Here,
Please Help D=
But I Am Going To Call The Emergency Vet. When I Do So, Will They Ask Me If It'S An Emergency? Is It Really An Emergency? They Ate 4Oz Of Pure Milk Chocolate And They'Re Very Small Dogs.
Neither Has Started Gagging, Vomiting, Having Diarrhea Or Anything.
Someone On That Said That If They Don'T Start Vomiting Within Like 6 Hours Then I Should Call. Soo Should I? The Dogs Weigh - One Weighs 11 And The Other Is Like 13 Or 14
Have your dogs displayed any abnormal behaviour? Been sick, diarrhea, sleepiness............the time to call the vet is immediately after it happens...not hours later after the chemicals have killed them.........dark chocolate is the killer, generally not milk chocolate...........I think your dogs are fine and unless they are display in any symptoms of toxic poisoning there is no nee for the vet..no feeding ( starve for a day) then next day fed plain boiled rice............an put your chocolate away, the worry is not worth it and the dogs are worth more......................
Emergency Vet Asked Me About Bones?
I Told Her That Yes, My Dog Eats Bones(Both Of Them). She Also Asked What Kind Of Kibble They Eat, But That'S A Non Issue Now Since We Are Moving Them Off Of Kibble Onto Raw. She Didn'T Seem To Like That Idea. Why Would She Ask, And Why Wouldn'T She Like It? I'Ve Fed My Dogs Bones For Over 20 Years And Never Had A Problem With Them.
You brought the dog to the emergency vet for bloody stool, so it makes sense that the vet would ask about what the dog eats. Might have been ruling out blockages or bone splinters, foods that have been recently recalled, etc., in trying to diagnose the problem.
Most vets are not proponents of raw diets, and especially not of BARF-type diets. Probably for a few reasons:
-They don't get a ton of nutrition training, and the training they do receive is sponsored by the major pet food manufacturers
-They have professional relationships with the major pet food companies; even if they aren't selling regular kibble, they do stock prescription diets for special needs.
-There are always inherent risks in feeding bones. They can splinter and cause blockages and GI perforations, they can splinter and cause foreign bodies lodged in the mouth, can break teeth, etc. The FDA released a recommendation just this week that dogs not be fed bones. ( I think the FDA went a little overboard, but it's out there now.)
-It takes a fair amount of work and education to properly feed a raw diet, and vets probably see a lot of owners who didn't do their homework first.
Veterinary Assisting Jobs? ?
I Really Want To Work As A Va At My
Local Humane Society, But Does It Pay Less Then If I Would Work At A Private Clinic Or Hospital. (I Have My Va Certificate)
Generally, humane societies don't pay very well. Many operate almost entirely on a volunteer basis and if they can get enough volunteers to staff the veterinary clinic then they don't need to hire an assistant. Chances are if they pay any support personnel it will be a registered technician.
For the most part, assistants will start at minimum wage at any clinic if they have no experience. A "certificate" is pretty useless and won't get you priority or higher pay.
Is There A Veterinary Job That Doesn'T Include Preforming Surgery?
I Am 15 And Still Deciding What I Am Exactly Interested In. I Wouldn'T Mind Being A Equine Vet But Is There A Part Where You Can Say, Only Specialize In Vaccines Or Check Ups? I Can Stand Watching A Surgery But I Don'T Think I'D Be Able To Preform One. I Have A Tough Stomach, I Am Always The One Who Cleans Up The Puppies Messes Or The Dogs Throw Up When He Eats Something He Shouldn'T Have, So I Am Not Sure. I Would Rather Be A Large Animal Vet.
You sound like a real animal lover, not being afraid of the tough jobs! At your age, you're not expected to be immune to the strangeness of cutting into a live body and moving parts around! I'm not kidding, though I'm trying to keep it light. If you really love animals enough, and find yourself continuing to be interested in a veterinary career, I think you would find that as you mature and become better educated, you will be so curious and eager to learn that surgery emerges as a very natural part of the whole process. I've read so many times of medical students who faint the first time they see a cadaver (dead body)- but they all seem to go on to become doctors!
Now, there's nothing wrong with becoming a Veterinary Technician, which is a good job and a fun one for an animal lover. You would not be the one performing surgery, but you would be supporting and helping animals all day long.
Still, I think you would find that you will develop a taste for surgery eventually if you pursue this, because the short answer is, no there isn't a way to be a vet without being expected to do at least minor surgeries. Good luck and I hope you can find your passion!
