I'M Thinking About Becoming A Veterinarian?
I'M Thinking About Becoming A Veterinarian, But The Thing Is I'M Not Sure I Can Perform The Surgery Or Euthanize The Pets That Need It. Although It Has Always Been My Dream Job To Be A Veterinarian. Is It Possible For A Veterinarian To Not Do Those Things? For The Past Couple Hours I'Ve Been Looking At Videos Where Veterinarians Perform Surgery, And I Just Don'T Think I Would Ever Be Able To Do It. Does That Mean My Dreams Are Crushed For Becoming A Vet?
There are veterinarians that do not perform surgery and veterinarians that don't euthanize. However, those that do not have specialized in some area where these tasks are not required. Radiologists for example do neither of those things. Neither do pathologists. However, both of those also have very little actual contact with animals. Anesthesiologists don't typically do either of these things but they are present during the surgery.
Internal medicine specialists do not perform surgery but do frequently need to euthanize animals.
If you want to be a general practitioner then you will be required to perform both of these tasks. Imagine taking your beloved pet to a veterinarian for it's whole life. Finally the time comes to put him down and the vet who you've been seeing for 10 years tells you she is unable to do it and sends you to a stranger. Clients do not accept this. As a general practitioner you will be expected to perform basic surgeries such as spays and neuters. Sending these common procedures away will not allow your clinic to survive.
Even if you do opt for one of the specialists that don't perform either of these procedures you will still be required to do both of them during your training. You will not get through vet school without performing surgery and it's very unlikely you won't come across a patient that requires euthanasia during school.
Some Questions About Veterinarians?
Hello There. I'M Nicole.
So, My Life Long Dream Is To Become A Veterinarian. Ever Since I Was A Little Girl. I Have A Deep, Undying Passion For Animals. But I Have Quite A Few Questions About The Profession. Primarily About The Schooling Required To Be A Legal Veterinarian In The State Of Mississippi. So Here Are My Questions:
1) What Schooling Is Required? The Main School I Have My Eye On Is Mississippi State University. It Is A Four Year Program. But Do I Have To Go To Some Other College First? The Requirements On The Msu Website Seem Far Too Many For A High School Graduate. Could You Give Me A Full List Of What I Need To Do, Step By Step, To Become A Veterinarian? Or What You Did?
2) What Can I Do Now, In High School, To Better My Chances In The Veterinary World? I Am A Sophomore, Intending To Apply To Mississippi School For Mathematics And Science, Which Is A Rather Prestigious Boarding School For Juniors And Seniors In High School. If I Can Get In, That Is. Hopefully, Having Graduated From There Would Make My Resume More Desirable, Seeing As Though Math And Science Are The Key Components In Veterinary Medicine. I Also Currently Volunteer For My County'S Shelter And Intend To Volunteer At My Local Vet'S Office When I Am Old Enough.
3) I'M Also Considering The Possibility Of Becoming A Veterinary Technician, Thoughts On That?
4) Any Tips? Advice?
I Greatly Appreciate Any Answers To This Question. They Mean A Great Deal. Thank You.
The path to becoming a veterinarian involves four years of college, followed by four years of vet school. You'll need excellent grades in college because it's extremely difficult to get into veterinary school. Becoming a vet tech in Mississippi may require either certification after taking some community college courses or being trained by a veterinarian. You can ask your local vet once you start volunteering. A vet tech job doesn't pay much -- the median salary is $23,000/year nationwide and probably less in Mississippi.
Is There Anyway To Get Free Or Low Cost Vet Care For Dogs?
I Cant Afford Vet Care For My Dog As I Have No Income Or Job I Can Pay Very Little For Vet Care Because My Mom Wont Pay Much For It Because Its Very Expensive And The Vets Here Dont Offer Payment Plans. And We Have Other Bills To Pay. If It Gets Really Sick Im Afraid Its Gonna Go Without Care Is There Anyway I Can Get Free Or Low Cost Vet Care?
Petco and the humane society offer some limited services at lower prices. Also the Care credit is a "credit card" that vets usually will accept, and which allows you to make payments. It pays to get insurance also, that way for about $10 or less a month you have regular checkups and emergencies covered for the most part. Good luck!
Ok. I Don'T Have Much Money But Need A Dog. It Will Have Food, Very Basic Vet Care -- No Heartworm Pills Etc. I Will Give It Lots Of Love..?
And Attention. I Don'T Want To Take A Dog That Might Have A Better Home Elsewhere So My Plan Is To Get A Shelter Dog Who'S Time Has Run Out And Is Soon To Be Euthanized. Is That Fair To The Dog? Will The Shelter Work With Me On Getting A Death Row Dog? I Need A Dog.
I do like the way you are thinking and your heart is in the right place. Food, treats, supplies, basic vet care should be fine. Try to find a low cost vet clinic in your area or for any free vaccinations. Where I live, there are free rabies shot clinics 2x a year. For food, if you live in the US, the best affordable yet healthy food you can get is Kirkland brand dog food (about $30-$35 for 40 lbs). The food bowls, leash, and collar can be purchased from a dollar store.
About the flea/heartworm prevention, I would recommend Bayer Serresto collars, which lasts up to 8 months and you can get it on Ebay for about $30. As for the heartworm medication, I use a generic Hartgard brand that has 12 monthly tablets for 50lb+ dogs (37.95) and smaller dogs (25.95) and it has 5 star reviews. Heartworms are deadly and heartworm tests are expensive, so I recommend you at least purchase these.
In Nj How Much Do Vet Bills Cost For Dogs?
Im About To Get A Dog And Would Just Like To Know How Many Times A Year Should I Bring Her To The Vet Shes Already Spayed And Up To Date With All Her Shots This Year So I Just Want To Know How Many Times A Year Should I Bring Her Obviously Not Counting A Situation Where Something Is Wrong With Her. Just Regular Visits Per Year And How Much Average Do They Cost And What Do They Consist Of.
You bring her when she needs it and when her vaccinations need updating as per law or as per outbreak alerts in your area.
My dog might not see a vet for 2 years but then might see him 4 times in 6 months if something goes wrong.
If you are in tune with your dog, you will know when she isn't feeling well and that will be your cue to go to the vet. You will recognize when her breath smells bad, and that will be your cue to get her teeth checked.
I don't do annual check-ups and I do minimal vaccinations. I don't do fecals, blood tests, or teeth cleaning unless it is needed. But, I am a responsible pet owner with an indoor dog who is fed a high quality food and I notice every change in her.
A standard check up at my vet is ~$40. You can call your vet and find out that basic charge.
This kind of post always frightens me quite a bit. If annual basic care is a budgetary issue, it usually means you can't afford the dog. My dog hurt her paw last month, so I'm $200 lighter this month. 4 months ago she had another issue that took two visits, two specialized exams, and two prescrptions to deal with. Another $300 gone. The average upkeep for my dog at this point is about $100/month. That's average. As you see, it's $0 for 8 months and then $500 all at once.
Does Anyone Know If There Are Vets Who Make House Calls In The City Of Houston Tx ?
My Dog Is Very Ill, He'S To Weak To Walk, He'S Very Agressive And He'S Growling At All Of Our Famliy Members.... If Someone Knows
Of Somewhere I Could Get Some Help
I haven't ever thought about a vet that makes house calls. If your dog is that ill, perhaps it is time to put him down. The best vets in town are at the Aldine Animal Clinic on Aldine-Bender, but I don't think they make house calls.
