How Long Before Testosterone Level Plummets After Canine Neutering?
I Just Had My 3 Yr Old Great Dane Neutered Today And Brought Him Home A Little Bit Ago. I Am Hoping The Other Dogs In The House Will Not Be As Aggressive Toward Him Now That He Is &Quot;Fixed.&Quot; I Am Also Seriously Hoping For No More Spraying! *Crossing Fingers* Any Idea How Long The Testosterone Level Will Remain Elevated Now That His &Quot;Jewels&Quot; Are Gone? Or How Quickly I May See Changes In His Behavior? (He Does Have A Somewhat Dominant Personality, But Hopefully, That Will Dull A Bit With Decreased Testosterone Levels.) I Forgot To Ask The Doc When I Picked Him Up. Thanks In Advance!
Well, the testosterone has been in his system for three years now. His behavior is already set in. It may change a little, but not that much. I have never heard of a dog "spraying". I know that dogs hike their legs and mark areas, but never spraying. I would definitely call the vet or maybe a behaviorist.
I Have A Second Thought On Neutering My Dog, He Is Still A Puppy And Hasnt Grown His Testicles?
He Doesnt Lift His Leg To Pee, If I Neuter Him When His Testicles Come Out Like A Month Later, Will He Still Lift His Leg To Pee?
Having him neutered will not affect him lifting his leg. Getting him neutered after his testicles drop is the best thing you can do for him! There are health benefits to it you shouldn't ignore. Why feel bad for giving him the best chance at good health?
There are several health benefits to neutering. One of the most important concerns the prostate gland, which under the influence of testosterone will gradually enlarge over the course of the dog’s life. In age, it is likely to become uncomfortable, possibly being large enough to interfere w/defecation. The prostate under the influence of testosterone is also predisposed to infection which is almost impossible to clear up without neutering. Neutering causes the prostate to shrink into insignificance thus preventing both prostatitis as well as the uncomfortable benign hyperplasia (enlargement) that occurs with aging. It is often erroneously held that neutering prevents prostate cancer but this is not true.
Other health benefits of neutering include the prevention of certain types of hernias and tumors of the testicles and anus. Excessive preputial discharge is also reduced by neutering.
Again, do not feel bad for doing something so good on so many levels!
Help With My Dog (Yorkie) Medicine?
I'Ve Recently Asked A Few Questions Regarding Out Pup So It'S The Same Dog If You'Ve Read Any Of Them. A Little Back Information On Him, We Just Got Him About A Month Ago From A Neighbor. He Is A 5 Year Old Male Yorkie. First Thing Did Was Switch His Food, He Was Eating Beneful With His Previous Owners We Quickly Went Out And Got Him Wellness To Switch Too. He Didn'T Eat Much So I Thought He Just Wasn'T A Big Fan Of The Food. When We Got Him We Also Noticed He Had Out Of The Ordinary Bad Breath. He Also Is Not Neutered So I Just Took Him Yesterday For A Predental Screening To He Could Get His Teeth Done The Same Time He Would Be Under For The Neuter.
Well The Vet Took One Quick Look In Mouth And Let Out A &Quot;Oh Oh My Oh Goodness Yes.&Quot; Turns Out Our Poor Pup Has An Infection In His Gums From The Ten Teeth That Need Extracted! (Explains Why Ge Has Trouble Chewing Treats And Doesnt Eat Much) Normally I Would Say 10 Is High But It Was The Spca So I Know They'Re Not Making Much Money Off Me So I Tend To Trust That'S How Many He Really Needs Removed.
He Also Has A Uti And Touch Of Kennel Cough :-(
So They Sent Me Home To Start Him Immediately On Some Antibiotics. Problem I Am Having Is It A Liquid And He Does Not Let Me Near His Mouth, So I'M Trying To Find Creative Ways To Give Him The Medicine. This Morning I Have Him An Egg (Fully Cooked The Vet Said It Was Ok) To Put His Medicine On The Eggs. That Worked! He Needs It Twice A Day So I'M Looking For Other Ways To Give Him This Medicine Without Holding Him Down To Get It To Him. Tips?
Mix it in a little peanut butter, most dogs love peanut butter.
Mix it in a little canned Wellness, you don't have to feed a lot of canned but dogs usually think that stuff is great too.
Pretty much mix it in a little of anything you can get liquid in that your dog really likes.
Cottage cheese? Yoghurt? A little plain chicken broth?
All else fails you can use a syringe, slip it in the side of his mouth and squirt away.
Need Help With Dog Medicine?
Does Anyone Know If A Dog Is Prescribed Phenobarbital, By Law, Do You Have To Have Bloodwork Every Month. My Vet Is Telling Me I Have To If We Want To Continue This Medicine.
Thank You In Advance.
The reason why regular blood testing is needed with phenobarbitol is because it is basically a self-eliminating medication--the longer your dog is on the drug, the higher his body's tolerance becomes, and the less effective it is.
Your vet is probably checking to see if the levels of phenobarb in his system are therapeutic, and making sure they are not toxic--because if they are too high, they are toxic.
Usually it is only needed every 6 months. Although, maybe it's needed more often than that if you just began the medication and your veterinarian is trying to assess how it is working on his system. If that is the case, then once the levels become consistently therapeutic, your vet will probably only ask you to do it every 6 months.
You should ask your vet what the plan is. As far as I know, it's not legally required. If cost is an issue, let your vet know that you can't afford to do it that often and see if you can do it every 2 months.
Veterinary Assistant As An Associates Degree ?
Im Currently A Freshmen (Hs) In Texas . Starting Next Year I Can Go To The Career Center And One Of The Programs Is Animal Science And When You Graduate You Get A Certificate To Be A Vet Assistant . I Want To Be A Doctor Of Vet Medicine (Using Vet Assistant/Then Vet Technician As A Back Up Plan In Case I Don'T Get Accepted In Vet School) .
I Was Just Wondering If Being A Vet Assistant Certificate Counts As An Associates Degree ? Or Do I Still Have To Get An Associates Degree In *For Example* Biology ?
Thanks For Answering .
No, the veterinary assistant certification does not count as an associates degree. It is simply a privately offered certification and carries no educational credits for college.
If your goal is to apply to TAMU for vet school, then you don't specifically need a bachelors degree (or at least not in the past though you should check with TAMU as requirements can change) but you will need to have taken specific required courses before application and a bachelors degree would look good on your application. You can choose a bachelors degree that meets the requirements for TAMU's vet school application. You can find a list of pre-requisites here: http://www.aavmc.org/data/files/vmcas/pr...
If your backup plan is veterinary assisting, then you don't need to have any further special education as there aren't any legal requirements for credentialing of veterinary assistants. There are veterinary assisting certificate programs available that would extend your knowledge beyond what you learn in high school and you might wish to consider one of them. If so, you should look at one of the ones that is approved through TVMA as that will get you some legal recognition in Texas though it won't change what you can do in a veterinary setting.
If you wish to work as a veterinary technician as a fallback, then you should look into getting a degree in veterinary technology from an AMA accredited program. Texas has just started licensing veterinary technicians as of last month. You can find out more through the Texas Assoc. of Registered Veterinary Technicians www.tarvt.org To find a list of AVMA accredited veterinary technology programs, you should look here: https://www.avma.org/ProfessionalDevelop... It is also possible to earn a bachelor's degree in veterinary technology which might meet your needs for application to vet school.
Whatever route you take, you should volunteer at or take a position in a veterinary facility before enrolling in any college courses so that you have a good idea of what the profession really entails.
Veterinary Surgeon Or Doctor?
I Have Decided I Want To Become Either A Vet Or Doctor But Cant Decide
What Are The Pros And Cons Of Both Also Who Gets The Largest Salary
The con is that if the largest salary is a consideration for you, you should not enter either of these fields as you seem to know that the pay is good in both of them. The first otherwise qualified students whom admissions officers at these professional schools weed out are those who are motivated by money or by the most money. That is part of their moral duty to protect the public from future doctors for any species who think too much about money.
