What To Ask Vet To See If They Are Good?
So Im Going To Look For A New Vet For My Puppy.
What Questions Should I Ask To Make Sure They Are A Good Vet?
Experience helps but its not everything. Availability for emergencies can be important. I pay a little more for my well-care treatment, but it saves me a bundle that I have a vet that's available 24/7 (the emergency vet hosp is pricey).
Every vet will make mistakes. It doesn't mean they're a bad vet. [some mistakes are inexcusable]
The questions you ask aren't as important as the vet's answer. Are they overly-opinionated, or do they offer advice and let you make final decisions. (good questions: flea control, food brands, etc.). Related to that-'bedside manner'. How do they act around your/other pets? Do they pay attention to your pet first? How does your pet react around them? I have one dog that freaks out over a lot of simple things, like nail clipping. I've met two vets that can clip his nails with absolutely no drama or reaction from my dog, one vet that told me he needed to be sedated, and one that hurt him in the process, manhandled him and my dog lost control of his bowels.
Is My Orphan Pup Doing Well? Vet Apt Tomorrow.?
I Had Gotten This Little Pup A About 4 Days Ago, We Made Him A Vet Appointment Which Is Tomorrow. We'Re On The Military Base In S. Korea So We Had To Make An Appointment For Him Regardless Of The Urgency.
When I First Got Him They Gave Me Korean Puppy Formula And Some Dry Organic Puppy Food. He Wouldn'T Eat The Food Even If I Put Water In It. So I Had Got Him Purnia Champions And He Eats That Up!
The Day I Had Got Him He Had 1 Tooth, Now All Of His Teeth Are Coming In. He Is Very Active. Always Wanting To Play And We Have Had The Heat On Which Somethings Wrong With So It'S Been About 80-85 Degrees.
I Was Very Worried About Him Before, He Showed No Sign Of Discomfort And Seemed Completely Happy To Be In A Home Where People Were Actually Caring For Him.
He'S Gaining Weight Noticeably After These 4 Days, His Stool Seems Fine And He Has Been Getting A Lot Of Rest.
What I'M Wanting To Know Is If Giving Him Goats Milk Is A Good Replacement Of The Mothers Milk Or Should I Be Giving Him Something Else?
Well first how old is the pup?
If he's around 6 weeks of age he should be on the dog food with a bit of water to have it soft while his teeth are still coming in. And are his teeth adult teeth or puppy teeth?
And yes goat milk is good for pups, I have an all natural vet and when my dog a litter she was weaning them to fast, so my vet said goats milk. But ask your vet if you feel like you need a second opinion. The more opinion's the better.
And over all it sounds like he's doing really well :)
I really hope this helped!
Getting My Dog Neutered?
Im Getting My Dog Neutered He Is 8 Months Old And I Have Some Question Since This Is The First Time Ive Had Any Of My Dogs Neutered
-Can He Go For Walks To Go Potty Or Do I Have To Use A Potty Pad
- Should I Kept Him Away From Other Dogs
-Can He Stay In His Crate When Im At School
-How Will He Act After Surgery
- Will He Gain Weight Cause Doggy Diabetes Is Bad On His Moms Side
- Will He Quit Humping His Toys
-Should I Buy A Cone Thing So He Doesnt Like His Cut
Also Let Me Now The Basics
Good for you for getting your dog neutered. Most dogs don't even seem to notice they just got neutered. A few lick their surgery sites, which you don't want. If your dog licks it, just put some little boy underpants on him that fit him. Put them on backwards and pull his tail gently out through the fly opening. That should keep him off his surgery site. Take the panties off when you take him out to go potty, of course. The incision should seal and be well on its way to healing within a week.
Will he quit humping his toys? Maybe, because it looks like you're getting the surgery before he reaches puberty, which is smart.
Just teach him his obedience, and when you see him doing this behavior give him a cue to sit, or down, or come, or do a trick you taught him, then reward him for doing what you asked.
Does A Dog Have To Be A Certain Age To Be Neutered?
yes, you can have your dog neutered as early as 8 weeks, and this is often done in shelters to avoid unwanted pregnancy however this is not in the best interest of the dog, you also don't want to neuter the dog too late in life if you can avoid it (1 year old is generally considered late...then again, better late than never)
a good time to neuter your dog is between 6 and 8 months, closer to 6, because having them neutered too young can create behavioral problems such as remaining a 'puppy' for longer because of the trauma at a young age, and health problems as growing larger because the testosterone turns into a growing hormone and neutering them after they reach maturity opens the door for issues like testicular cancer, unwanted pregnancies, and a greater risk for sexual frustration resulting in humping or marking.
below is the portion of the text from a fact sheet about neutering:
"AT WHAT AGE CAN NEUTERING BE PERFORMED?
Neutering can be performed at any age over age 8 weeks. Dogs neutered before puberty (generally age 6 months) tend to grow a bit bigger than dogs neutered after puberty (testosterone is involved in the causing bones to stop growing so without testosterone the bones stop growing later). Neutering can also be performed in the geriatric patient should the prostate gland become enlarged and the best medical decision be to shrink it. In this event, preanesthetic bloodwork and other diagnostics relevant to anesthetizing an older patient would be recommended.
The traditional age for neutering is around 6 months of age and many veterinarians still recommend neutering at this age.
The benefits of neutering (both health and behavioral) can still be obtained regardless of the age at which neutering is performed"
and here is a link to that fact sheet about neutering, including the most commonly asked questions:
it is always good to educate your self before jumping into something like this, reading over the fact sheet will not only help you understand what your dog is going through (you are castrating the dog, they don't just tie up a few things, they completely cut out the testicals! this can be upsetting for an animal because after the procedure they wake up in a strange place and are in alot of pain...it is however for their own good), but reading the fact sheet will also tell you what behaviors to expect from your dog as well as how to handle them.
What Is The Difference Between A Veterinary Doctor And A Veterinary Technician?
A veterinary technician is to a veterinary doctor as a medical assistant is to a medical doctor.
A veterinary technician assists the veterinary doctor and is only authorized to do very basic things. A veterinary technician doesn't really need much educatation and doesn't make very much money compared to a veterinary doctor who needs alot of education and makes pretty good salary. Aldo the veterinary doctor usually owns the office and is therefore the "boss" whereas the technician is an employee.
Is A Veterinary Technician Job Right For Me?
I Love Animals, Love Love Love Them. I Don'T Want To Be Too Involved In The Medical Side, Like A Vet Would Be. I Don'T Want To Be On-Call Too Often, I Want To Have A Pretty Established Salary/Career, And To Be Able To Earn And Save Enough Money. It Would Be Nice To Work Up To A Higher Position... I Know I Want A Masters, I Wanted A Doctorate But The Work And Money Is Overwhelming To Me Involving That... I Read Though That A Masters Gets You Into A Vet Technologist, Not A Vet Technician. I Want Hands On, Not Research... I Want To Live Well, Not Poorly... (At Least A Nice Apartment That Is Clean And Doesn'T Smell Lol.) I Like Organization And Filing Papers And Computers And Talking With Other People Too, And I Love The Idea Of Being Around Animals, Even If It Doesn'T Mean Playing With Them Or Cuddling Them. I Want To Establish A Good Work Life With My Co Workers And My Boss, Which Would Be A Vet In This Case, The Kind Where You Are Friends Outside Of Work Too, And Have Things In Common...
Do I Sound Like I'D Be A Good Vet Tech?
An Odd Bq, But: Where Do The Dogs Tails Go After They Dock Them?
Thanks For The Advice!!
There are no schools offering a masters degree in veterinary technology. You can earn an associates degree or a bachelor's degree. Those with a bachelor's degree are termed "veterinary technologists" by the AVMA, but that title is only legally recognized in one state currently.
If you don't want to be too involved in the medical side, then a position as a veterinary technician or technologist is not for you. Vet techs are very hands on and involved in the medical care of the patients. Veterinary technicians also do not typically (in any part of the US) make more than $48k a year.
A better choice for you skills-wise would likely be to earn a business management degree and work towards becoming a certified veterinary practice manager. This will make good use of your organizational skills and still have you working in a veterinary facility. http://vhma.affiniscape.com/displaycommo...
