My Cat Was Kicked In The Side, Hard. I Know She Needs A Vet, But There Are No 24 Hour Vets In My Town?
She Is Responsive, Will Eat And Can Be Encouraged To Play A Little. Heart Rate Is 80 (A Bit Slow) And Respiration Is Normal, About 30. Her Gums Are Pink And Blood Flow Seems Good. She Will Be Going To The Vet First Thing Am. She Does Seem A Little Quieter Than Usual And Wants To Lay On My Bed Which Is Unusual, My Son Belongs To Her, Not Me. Have I Covered All The Bases? And Can Anyone Tell Me If There Is Anything Else I Need To Do?
P.S. She Is An Indoor Cat That Just Happened To Run Out The Door As An A$$Hole Walked By. He Kicked Her As Hard As He Could And Then He Ran Away. Good Thing He Ran, Or I'D Probably Be In Jail Right Now. I Will Be Sitting Up With Her All Night.
So far, so good. The cat doesn't appear to be seriously damaged. Now all you have to do is keep it quiet and still for the night. Do not try to medicate it and stop feeding it. If it has internal injuries it should not be eating. Leave it water but no food and don't handle it unless you absolutely have to. If it is seriously injured it probably won't want to move much anyway.
Good luck at the vets.
Vet Said Not To Give My Puppy Or Food For 24 Hours?
My Puppy Been Puking Since Monday After I Gave Him Worm Medicine And The Vet Said Not To Give Him Food Or Water For 24 Hours. Just Give Him Ice Cubes...But He Is So Hungry. He Is Watching My Other Dog Eat And He Is Crying And Trying To Get To Her When Shes Eating. Tomorrow She Said Just Give Him A Little Lean Hamburger N Rice...Is There Anything I Can Give Him Now That Would Be Okay For Him Because He Is So Hungry And He Is Skinny The Way It Is And I Hate Making Him Starve.
Follow the vet's instructions. I know it's hard but sometimes an animal's stomach needs time for the inflammation and irritation to calm down before they can handle food again. He's not going to starve to death going without food for a day, in spite of what he may try to convince you. Be strong, give him plenty of love and attention, and know that this is for his own good.
Dog Neuter Surgery Pre Blood Work?
There Is A Low Cost Vet Clinic Nearby That'S Offers Limited Services And One Is Neutering. The Surgery Does Not Include The Pre Blood Work, Is The Blood Work Necessary? I Know Some Vets Do Not Require It And Its Optional For An Additional Fee And Some Vets Include It And The Surgery Price Is Higher. Will It Be Ok If I Do Not Get The Blood Work?
As some dogs need fluid therapy during anesthesia, have high clotting time (reduced clotting factors in blood), or other concerns, bloodwork can inform surgeons of these risks prior to surgery. If he does have a bleeding/clotting disorder, special methods and techniques must be utilized when incising the skin, any blood vessels, and ligating said blood vessels (and massive ones lead to the testicles).
If the dog is over 7 years old they may want to administer IV fluids no matter what the bloodwork reveals, as older dogs often need hydration during anesthesia and recovery.
Honestly he may not be ok. Your vet has NO WAY of knowing if your dog has reduced kidney function or abnormal clotting ability without testing for these, especially a surgeon doing many neuters and spays daily, such as in a low cost clinic. They have never examined your dog before. They have no prior knowledge of him. If he has von Willebrand's or other cause of increased clotting time, surgery is very risky and is usually performed by a board certified surgeon accustomed to handling such cases.
Low cost clinics also use inexpensive sedatives that depress breathing and heart rate and may cause dysphoria when waking, no pain control, less patient monitoring, less expensive suture material, and have difficulty neutering a dog with a retained testicle (cryptorchid), meaning both testicles are not descended into the scrotum. An abdominal, more invasive surgery is needed, and even with a larger abdominal incision, locating the testicle is difficult as it's usually smaller and less developed and may be deeper in the abdominal cavity. This are the risks associated with a lower cost surgery. This doesn't mean you shouldn't utilize low cost spay and neuter clinics (or mobile units) but just be aware that you need to closely observe your boy for incision reaction, suture reaction, anesthesia side effects, and get him some pain medication at your regular DVM if they do not have oral NSAIDs at the low cost clinic for you to purchase for an additional price.
Bloodwork and exams are more useful and beneficial than boostering vaccines in adult and senior dogs! They are invaluable sources of information to help diagnose veterinary abnormalities. Do not underestimate their contribution to your pets' health.
Small Dog Needs Surgery?
I Have A Chihuahua, And He Is Going Into The Vet Next Week To Get A General Anesthetic, And Get Surgery On His Teeth, He Needs 6 Of Them Pulled. He Is A Chihuahua/Toy Fox Terrier, And He Weighs 9 Pounds. Is There Anything I Should Be Worried About? Is There A Way The Vet Might Give Him Too Much Anesthetic And Kill Him? They Told Me The Surgery Is From 9 In The Morning Until 4 In The Afternoon, And They Told Me I Am Not Allowed To Stay At The Vet And Wait While He Is Getting His Surgery, Is It Normal That They Told Me I Can't Stay?
With any surgery their is a risk. Some breeds, like Greyhounds have a higher risk than others. I used to be a vet tech and performed and assisted with many dentals. The only dog we ever lost on the table was a Greyhound. She was doing fine but she would not come out of the anesthetic no matter what we did.
Dont worry about your vet accidently ODing your dog. Vets and techs are very well trained in proper dosages and administration. When I did them the dogs would be sedated and have a trachea tube inserted for oxygen. Your dog is in good hands. Usually when you drop your dog off you will sign surgery release forms. My vet offered the option of CPR in case of emergency if the owner wanted it.
Completely normal that the vet doesnt want you waiting in the office during surgery. Not only are anxious owners a pain to have around, but the animals are more anxious if their owners are around. When my Grey needed a dental, I stayed with him until he was knocked out on the table and then I went to work the front desk. He was good waking up later, but when he saw me he got all whiney because he wanted to go home and be with me.
When your dog is out of surgery the vet will call you to let you know how things went, but pick up usually isnt until the end of that day or sometimes the next morning. Waking up from surgery your dog will be very groggy and probably in some pain. I am sure he will have pain meds, and your vet will probably give you special instructions for feeding him. Since he is getting 6 teeth pulled I would imagine that he will either be on a canned food diet, or his kibble will be soaked in water so that it is soft enough for him.
Dont worry, your baby is in good hands!
What Is More Difficult; Veterinary Science Or Optometry?
I Am Thinking About Doing Veterinary Science At University Of Sydney Or Optometry At The University Of New South Wales Or The University Of Auckland (I'M From Auckland, New Zealand).
Assumed Knowledge For Both Is Mathematics, Chemistry And Physics; All Of Which I Have. I Am Reasonably Good At All Of Them, But Weakest In Physics.
I Was Wondering What Career Is More Difficult And Which Is Career Is More Fulfilling? Statistics Would Be Helpful Such As Industry Growth, Salary Etc. Any Additional Information Concerning These Two Careers Or Similar Careers Would Be Helpful.
Veterinary Science. It actually requires a 4 year degree. Optometry simply requires the ability to count the numbers on a lens machine as you ask, "Which looks better, number one, or number two?"
"Uhh... can I see one again?"
"Sure. Number one, or number two?"
"Hmm.. I guess basically the same."
"Okay, number three, or number four?"
Yeah. You don't go to a 4 year university to become an optometrist. Know some number tables and woo-hoo open up your own business. Optometry has no use for chemistry or physics. If all that you're worried about is money, you can make a *lot* more money with a successful veterinary practice than you can as an optometrist (even a successful one).
What Community Collages In So Cal Offer Veterinary Science Programs?
When I Graduate This Year Im Going To Start At A Community Collage, I Need To Save Money, So What Cc'S Offer Any Kind Of Veterinary Science Courses
Veterinary science, as opposed to veterinary technology, would not be studied in community college (sp.).
If you want to become a veterinarian, you need to take at community college the university transfer program since a bachelor's degree is required for enrollment in veterinary school, should you become fortunate enough to be accepted by a veterinary school after you apply in your senior year of university.
Veterinary schools do not give much, if any, credit to the courses that they require for admission and list on their websites if they are taken in community college. If you postpone them until university, it is likely that it will take you three years at university if you start university in your junior year, so you will save little or no money by starting at a community college. Start at a low priced campus of your state university instead.
