My Cat Was Returned To A Pet Clinic..?
Found And Turned Into The Pet Clinic I Just Found Out.
They Are Closed Today And We Won'T Be Able To Go Tomorrow Because We Won'T Be Available During Their Open Times.
They'Ve Had Our Cat Since Yesterday, We Got A Voice Mail. Do You Think They Would Charge A Fee To Get Our Cat Back? And Will They Turn Our Cat Into The Shelter Or Is It Likely They Already Have? How Long Do You Think They Would Keep Her?
They'Re Just A Pet Clinic, You Don'T Buy Cats/Dogs There...
You may not like this answer but it is a fact. They have to care for the cat and so yes they may charge you for that care. The animal shelter would do the same as well as charge you a fee or penalty for not getting it licensed and vaccinated. So brace yourself. Cruel world out there. That's why I keep my cats indoors.
We Are A Low Income Family. Our Beloved Cat Needs Surgery. Are There Any Clinics In Our Area? Sacramento, Ca?
We Need Someone Who Helps Pets With Low Income Families. I Work Full Time, But Can'T Manage The $2000.00 Vet Bill. Can Anyone Send Us In The Right Direction To Get Help? Thank You
Your best bet is to call around to the emergency clinics and see if they will give you a lower rate and/or take payments. (Emergency clinics are more likely to take payments than vets.)
Here is a link to a page that will help you find emergency clinics close to you: http://www.pets911.com/services/emergenc...
If you go to a church you could ask if you could take a special collection for surgery for your cat.

What Age Should I Have My Dog Neutered?
I Have A 10 Month Old Siberian Husky Male And I Want Him To Be Fully Grown By The Time He Goes In. Is 10 Months To Early For A Breed Like This? Should I Wait Until He'S Atleast A Year Old Or Longer? He Has No Behavorial Problems At All. Should I Cancel The Appointment?
• "What age should I have my Dog neutered?"
There is no "should" age involved.
In either sex, vets prefer to do it at 4-to-6 months old, because the fast body growth while young means that the incision heals quickly. However, as the gonads produce the hormone that signals the growth-plates when to stop extending the length of the bones, there ARE possible drawbacks.
Study the research reports in http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/The_G... - they convinced me that a voluntary neutering is best left until at least 11 months old, preferably 15 or older - but make up your own mind.
• "Should I wait until he's atleast a year old or longer?"
That would be my recommendation, IF you can keep him him properly enclosed. The later, the better.
• "Should I cancel the appointment?"
Rebooking would be better - aim for when the weather is pleasant and you can stay home for 2 or 3 days to keep his mind occupied.
to your browser, so that you can easily look up all sorts of information about dogs, especially GSDs.
Your vet has got it wrong, or - more likely - you weren't paying enough attention. It's not the "mature" aspect of his "boy parts" that matters, it is the hormones the gonads of both sexes produce to tell the growth-plates in the legs to stop growing longer. Neutering of either sex results in those plates no longer being synchronised, which can result in mis-shaped parts of each joint.

Getting My Dog Neutered?
I Am Getting My German Shepherd Neutered On The 17 Of Sep. He Is 4 Years Old And His Old Owners Never Did It!! I Can't Wait Till He Is Neutered Because He's Kind Of Aggressive And Territorial.
But I Was Wondering, Will It Help Him Not To Be So Aggressive? I Thought It Would Help Because I Was Told It Would, But Now I Hear That It Doesn't!! Is The Person That Said This Wrong, Or Am I Wrong? I Hope I'm Right Because He's Not Aggressive To Me, But To My Sister, And I Know If He's Still Like That To My Sister After He's Neutered, We Won't Be Able To Keep Him, My Mom Just Won't Have It. I Love Him, And He Is Very Sweet And Submissive To Me, But It's Like He Knows He Can Push Around My Sister, Even Though She's 17! She Is Not A Child!
So, Will Neutering Him Help With That, Or Not?
There is NO guarantee that neutering will have an effect on a dogs aggression, and for people to say they know it will as a fact are totally WRONG. The younger the dog is the better chance you have of this working, but at 4 years old it will have less of an effect. I have had GSD all my life my father breeds them, one of my shepherds who i have now i had neutered for aggression reasons was also 4 when i had it done. It made absolutely no difference at all. I also have a little staffie who was neutered as a pup, and he is still on the aggressive side. So you see there is no guarantee, do it by all means it does have health benefits but don't count on it solving your dogs aggression issues, Training is what he needs.
Questions About Becoming/Being A Vet For Large Animals?
I'M 15, And For As Long As I Remember, I'Ve Always Wanted To Be A Vet, And About 2 Years Ago I Decided I Wanted To Be A Vet For Large Animals Instead Of Small Ones. My Questions Are:
1) What Does The Whole Process Of Becoming A Vet For Large Animals Look Like? I Know You Have To Learn About All Animals In Vet School, But You Know What I Mean. :)
2) What Are Some Tips On Gaining Experience With Animals Now That Would Help Me Get Into Vet School Easier? And What Are The High School Requirements That Are Needed To Get Into Vet School? How Much Experience Do They Look For?
3) On A Scale Of 1-10, How Hard Is Vet School?
4) Once You Become A Vet For Large Animals, About How Many Hours Do You Work A Day/Week?
5) What Do Large Vets Usually Wear To Work?
Any Other Information You Might Have Would Be Great! I'M Really Determined To Be A Large Vet, And I'M Ready To Work Hard For It. I Think I Can Do It. I Just Need To Know What To Do, Haha. :) Thank You So Much If You Took The Time To Answer All These Questions. I Really Appreciate It. :)
Being a Veterinarian means 8 years of college, all science courses, plus working in clinics and hospitals for both small and large animals. It's very hard, a 10 on the scale of 1-10. You have to be able to diagnose correctly, treat the animal, and then make a prognosis for the future. You can't make a mistake or you will lose a customer and the word will get around that you are no good.
You have to learn both small and large animals. In dealing with large animals, you would be working primarily with cows and horses and one of the most common things you would do is check them for pregnancy. That means sticking your whole entire arm up a cow's or horse's butt, sometimes as many as 30 or 40 times a day. You have to wear coveralls as you will get covered in manure. So, if you can't do that, being a vet is not for you. Also, you have to be very careful as you don't want to get kicked or squashed by an animal falling on you.
Another very common thing you would do is assist cows in giving birth to calves, especially calves that are breech (backwards in the cow's womb), and extremely difficult to deliver. Many of them die in that position and have to be removed from the cow, which is a long and difficult process. Also, very bloody. It has to be done quickly or the cow will die, too, which is very costly for the farmer.
You have to work regular hours, usually from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, but sometimes later, depending on whether you have any emergencies. Generally, you work 6 days a week and are off on Sunday. If you are working in a clinic with another vet (which you probably will), you can probably take off another day during the week, but generally, you have to work on Saturday. The great thing about it is the variety of animals that you see and the different problems that they have, and when you help an animal get well, you have a good feeling that you have given that animal a better life.
Here is a sample course list from Texas A&M.: (These are the courses you would take after you have a 4 year Bachelor's degree from a regular college, majoring in science.)
Click on the above link and you can explore that website. Also, you need to make at least a "B" grade in all of your high school and college science courses. Good luck.
When you work in the clinic, you can wear your jeans and a pullover sport shirt. You just wear coveralls when you are out making farm calls which would be a couple of days a week. I think it would be a great job.
There is a great TV show coming back soon about a vet that does both small and large animals. It is called "Dr. Pol," and is about a vet in rural Michigan. It is coming on Aug. 19 on the Nat Geo Wild channel, Be sure and watch it,
Vet Schools For Zoo Animals?
What Would Be The Best Vet School To Consider If I'M Interested In Working With Zoo Animals?
I don't know what the "best" one is, but look for one that has a teaching hospital that works with zoo animals and/or one that offers a zoo related internship or residency. OR look for a zoo that offers an internship or residency.
Question: I want to know more about Zoo Medicine.
Answer : The best way to look for a school that can help you become a zoo veterinarian is to first check and find out if they have an active exotic animal medicine program. Call the veterinary school that you are interested in and ask them if they have an exotic animal medicine department, how many faculty members do they have in that department, do they work with the nearby/local zoos, how many exotic animal cases do they work with.
The best program for learning about zoo medicine would probably be Kansas State University since that is where Dr. James Carpenter is a faculty member and runs the exotic animal medicine department. He wrote the textbook on Zoo and Wildlife Medicine. Some other top schools to consider are UC Davis, University of Florida, and University of Tennessee. But this is just my opinion based on a number of conversations I've had with various zoo veterinarians.
