How To Take Care Of A Stray Cat?
Need Help Taking Care Of Stray Cat And Please I Need Some Tips Very Badly. Thank You. Kira K.
Put some food and water out. It also depends on what you plan on doing with it. If you want to keep it, then you should trap it, and take it to the vet. And if you have other cats already, dont let it around them until you have it combo tested for feline aids and leukemia, because your other cats could get it. If it is positive for either, then you might want to think about euthanizing it. But hopefully its all negative. And you should definitely get it spayed/neutered. At the clinic I work at, if someone finds a stray and traps it, we will sedate it will in the cage, combo test it, and then spay/neuter it all in one day, then its done. Also, vaccines, of course. :)
Where Can I Find Free Basic Vet Care For My Cat In Mesa, Az?
My Cat Needs Her Yearly Check Up Soon, And Her Claws Cut (She Wont Let Me Clip Her Claws) But My Family Is On A Fixed Income And I Can'T Afford The Vet Bills... Who Can I Go To For Free Vet Care For My Cat??
I'm unsure if you've spayed you cat yet, if not here is a list of free to low-cost spaying clinics.
Some of these places also offer other veterinary services at free or discount rates. This is also fantastic news for those who wish to start of the spay/neuter/vaccinate and release programs for feral cats and dogs ! )
Creating A Pet Rescue Within A Veterinary Clinic?
I Am Currently Employeed At A Veterinary Clinic Where We Take In And Find Home For Reliquinshed And Lost Pets. Before Any Pets Leave The Clinic They Are Spayed/Neuter, Vaccinated, Tested For Appropriate Diseases (Dogs: Heartworm, Cats: Felv/Fiv), And Treated For Any Underlying Diseases. We Require An $80 Relinquishment Fee And A $40 Adoption Fee With The Option To Return The Pet No Questions Asked Should Things Not Work Out--Even If That'S 5 Years Down The Road. Recently, Due To Poor Conditions In The Local Shelter, We Have Had A Large Influx Of Relinquished Pets. I Am Looking For Help In Regards To Creating A Legit Rescue/Shelter In Order For Us To &Quot;Rightfully&Quot; Take In These Pets As Well As Help With Funding. Any Suggestions Would Be Appreciated.
I appluad what you are doing - I work with a local humane society - and I can tell you it takes years from going from an informal organization to a place with a real shelter. Our organization started in the early 70's and did not get organized enough to build a small shelter until 1985 when we got a big benefactor to buy the land and the group was organized enough to do a big fundraising campaign and receive a large bequest that funded the building.
You will need to form a 501c(3) non-profit organization for people to able to give you tax-exempt donations (and you will need lots of those), you will need a board of directors and and will need to do lots of fundraising. Then you will need to pay a staff and have lots of dedicated volunteers since you will be running a 24/7 operation.
Is there any way you could get a group going to support the shelter you already have so it has fewer problems? In our county, the county shelters have volunteer non-profit organizations that help the county run the shelter and adopt out the animals that are adoptable - they also ran a fundraising campaign that allowed the county to raise the funds to replace a too-small existing shelter. Conditions at our county shelters have improved significantly since that happened. Also, the private non-profit shelters such as ours have banded together with the county shelters to form a network and we support each other in meeting our collective goals rather than competing. For example, when we have space, we take animals from the county shelter to help them with their overcrowding problem and we spay and neuter cats for a local feral cat group. These are just some alternative ideas of how to help without building a new shelter.
Would A Veterinary Office Hire Someone That Got A Degree Online?
I Want To Become A Vet Tech But There Our No Colleges In My Area That Offer That Program. I Came Across An Online College Called Penn Foster College That Offers An Associates Degree In Vet Tech. It Says It Os Accredited By The American Veterinary Medical Association. My Worry However Is Wondering If A Vet Office Would Hire Someone With A Degree That They Got Online. Any Information Would Be Helpful! Thx!
Yes, it is possible to get a job with a degree in veterinary technology from an online AVMA accredited program. However, is it likely in your location? That's entirely dependent on the veterinarians in your area. You would do well to contact local veterinarians to see what their opinions on the subject are. Many veterinarians do not understand that all AVMA accredited programs including online/distance-education program require many hours of hands-on training and experience in a veterinary facility. For distance education programs, this training and experience is gained under a licensed veterinarian (and often a credentialed veterinary technician) in a local veterinary clinic where the student's performance of a long list of tasks is monitored and signed off on by the veterinarian or credentialed technician.
10d. Practical veterinary experience that expands student knowledge and builds proficiency of acquired skills through task-specific exercises is a required portion of the curriculum. These experiences are usually termed preceptorships, practicums, internships, or externships and are for the purpose of honing skills learned in the more formal instructional settings. These practical experiences should be a minimum cumulative 240 contact hours and must be monitored by the program director or the director's appointee who must be a program faculty or staff member. Prior to the beginning of the practical experience, on-site supervisors must be contacted by the program. During the practical experience, contact must be maintained with students and their on-site supervisors to monitor students' personal and educational experiences. It is highly recommended that such contact take place through personal visits and interviews by the program director or appointee. Specific criteria must be used to assist on-site supervisors in monitoring student progress. The program director or appointee shall review student performance evaluations by on-site supervisors, student evaluation of the experiences, and a final student performance evaluation.
10e. Successful completion of all required skills found in the Veterinary Technology Student Essential and Recommended Skills List, Appendix I must be evaluated and documented by program personnel who use standard criteria that reflect contemporary veterinary practice."
Understand that it is the student's responsibility to find a veterinarian to be the preceptor for the hands-on portion of the degree program. This preceptorship is a time-consuming position for the veterinarian and/or his credentialed veterinary technician so it's often wise to already have a good working relationship with a veterinarian before enrolling in an online degree program. It's also often a requirement of veterinary technology degree programs that applicants have experience in a veteirnary facility, so if you are considering going the online program route it would be advisable to try to get a job as a veterinary assistant with your employer advised of your goal.
When looking at online degree programs, be sure to ask about their completion rate (number of students who complete the program vs the number that start) and their pass rate on the Veterinary Technician National Exam as both of these numbers can help you to see the quality of education and student assistance provided. (The AVMA requires that accredited programs know these statistics.) There are 9 AVMA accredited distance education programs in veterinary technology so you don't have to go with the first one you find. Take some time and talk to each program to see which one seems like the best fit for you and has the best reputation.
Also be very careful. There are many veterinary ASSISTING programs out there that will try to confuse you into thinking that they are the same thing as a veterinary technology degree. They are not degree programs nor will they qualify you to work as a veterinary technician. Veterinary assisting is an entry level position and all veterinary assistant certificates or diplomas are voluntary achievements that are not typically well-respected and will not change anything that you can do in a veterinary facility. Veterinary assistant programs are also not accredited by the AVMA. http://www.avma.org/issues/policy/veterinary_technology.asp So while programs like Ashworth's are cheaper than Penn Foster, they are not the equivalent either.
It is also a good idea to discuss the profession and the educational options with your state veterinary technician association.
