What Could Be Wrong With My Dog? Please Help If You Are Knowledgeable!?
These Are Some Of Her Strange &Quot;Symptoms&Quot;:
-High Body Temperature (Shivering And Hot To The Touch)
-Unusually Hyper And Neurotic (Running Back And Forth, Crying And Whining)
-Doesn'T Like Being Touched Or Picked Up
-Strange, Unpleasant Odor
Her Vet Told Me She'S In Excellent Health, She'S A 2 Year Old Lab/Terrier Mix, And She'S Never Been Sick A Day Since I Got Her. She Has No Apparent Rashes, Bumps, Hair Loss Or Swelling. It'S Got Me Really Worried, And I'M Taking Her To The Vet As Soon As They Open In The Morning (We Live In A Very Small Town, With No 24 Hour Vet Service). I Was Just Wondering If Anyone Here Could Possibly Know What'S Going On, And Maybe Give Me Some Idea Or Relief Until The Morning, Or Even Better, Tell Me Nothing'S Wrong. Thank You
If you can find a 24 hour vet in a bigger town, I would go ahead and make the drive. Or look in the phone book- even small-town vets are on call sometimes. I live in a town of 700 people; my vet is located in a town 10 miles away, with 300 people in it- and she is on 24 hour emergency call, plus there is a 24 hour clinic in a town of 15,000 people, 45 miles away. You might be suprised.
The symptoms you describe could be a number of things- but they definitely show something isn't right. Everything points to a high level of stress, possibly caused by pain somewhere in her body. Could be gastric torsion (bloat)- which requires immediate attention to save the dog's life. Usually is accompanied by a distended/hard abdomen, drooling, and/or attempts to vomit- but not always. Look it up online & see if your dog shares the symptoms.
Could also be she got into something, swallowed a foriegn object & has a blockage....that would cause pain & reluctance to eat/drink. Since this is a possibility, do NOT induce vomiting without direction from your vet.
Hopefully it's something far less serious- but with those symptoms, I don't think I'd be taking chances. I hope she is OK if you do decide to wait until morning. Unfortunately there isn't much you can really do at home, except try to keep her quiet, calm and reassured. Best of luck to you.

Cat Food Alternative To Vet Prescribed Cd Food?
A Few Years Ago My Cat Had Crystals In His Urine, And We Had To Take Him To An Emergency Vet Clinic Because Blood Started Showing Up In The Urine. The Vet Said That He Needed To Be On A Special Diet To Prevent Him From Getting Crystals Again, But The Food That He Told Me To Feed Him (It'S Called Cd) Is Stuff That I Only Know How To Find At The Vet And It'S Pretty Expensive. As A Poor College Student I Want To Feed My Cat Something That Will Keep Him Healthy, But I'D Like To Find A Cheaper Way To Do That If Possible. I Know That Wet Food Is The Best Kind To Give Cats, And That'S What I Give Him Now. So If Anyone Knows Anything About An Alternative Canned Food I Could Give Him That Would Help Prevent Crystals I Would Love To Know. Thanks!
Blood in the urine just indicates an infection. Crystals are often misdiagnosed as the specimen has to be tested immediately. CD food causes more damage to cats then it is suppose to prevent.
Food prices DO NOT include the price of vet bills and heartache.
College Student? Do your research or save my email for when your cat gets diabetes. start feeding proper food for the species and that is not kitty crack.
Nutrition since there are so many bad things out there is very important to your cat’s health
Contrary to what you may have heard; dry foods are not a great thing to feed a cat.
Please read the label on what you are feeding? What are the ingredients? Do you know what they mean? Is the first ingredient a muscle meat like chicken or meal or other things?
Dry foods are the number 1 cause of diabetes in cats as well as being a huge contributing factor to kidney disease, obesity, crystals, u.t.i’s, constipation, and a host of other problems. Male cats are especially prone to blockages
from dry food. Food allergies are very common when feeding dry foods. Rashes, scabs behind the tail and on the chin are all symptoms The problems associated with Dry food is that they are loaded with grains and carbohydrates which many cats (carnivores) cannot process. ( Have a fat cat?)
An even bigger problem is that it IS dry and it dehydrates no matter how much your cat drinks
Most of the moisture a cat needs is suppose to be in the food. Cats are not naturally big drinkers.
95% of the moisture is zapped out of dry foods in the processing. Think about it.
Another thing, most use horrible ingredients and don't use a muscle meat as the primary ingredient and use vegetable based protein versus animal. Not good for an animal that has to eat meat to survive.
You want to pick a canned food w/o gravy (gravy=carbs) that uses a muscle meat as the first ingredient and doesn't have corn at least in the first 3 ingredients if at all.
THE BEST CAT FOODS CONTAIN NO GRAINS NO BYPRODUCTS
Cats are meat eaters not cereal or rice eaters
Fancy feast is a middle grade food with 9lives, friskies whiskas lower grade canned and wellness and merrick upper grade human quality foods. I would rather feed a middle grade canned food then the top of the line dry food.
Also, dry food is not proven to be better for teeth. Does a hard pretzel clean your teeth or do pieces of it get stuck in between.
Please read about cat nutrition.
Prescription diets It is extremely rare that they should be fed
The reason your vet thinks so highly of the pet food they sell probably has more to do with the people pushing it on
them with their own research showing how great their food is. Who is going to spend money or research for animals these
days. The food companies that is who. Their research is designed not to hurt their bottom line
Believe me a company researching their own products are in it for profit
Some vets are behind the times when it comes to nutrition
but more are reading and becoming up to date
Times change information changes over time as more is learned. Please do your research
Does My Cat Need To Go To The Emergency Vet Clinic?
Last Night My Cat Had Mucus (Whiteish) From Her Bottom.. We Did Not See Any More Of It So We Thought Maybe She Just Got Scared Or Something. Now This Morning She Has Diarrhea And Is Whining Whenever She Uses The Bathroom (Which Is Very, Very Frequent) She Also Is Licking Her Bottom A Lot. The Vets Are Not Open Today Because It Is Sunday, Should We Take Her To The Emergency Vet Clinic Right Now Or Would She Be Okay For A Few More Hours?
My Fiance Will Not Wake Up To Help Me Take Her To The Vet. If I Can Convince Him That We Need To Go Now Maybe He Will Get Up.. :( (We Just Moved Yesterday And I Will Get Lost If I Go On My Own)
definitely take her now - even if it is just a virus or something its better to be safe than sorry. it sounds like your poor cat is very uncomfortable, so even if it doesnt turn out to be a serious issue at least the vet you see could recommend something to ease her pains.
as for your fiance... dump a bucket of water on his head and demand he take you now!! assert your womanly dominance ;)
I Want To Become A Veterinarian?
I'M 15 A 10 Grader In High School And I Don'T Know When I Should Start To Worry About This But I Want To See If I Can Do Something Right Now. What Type Of Things Can I Do To Become Should I Call My Veterinarian Office To See If They Are Looking For Volunteers Or What?
If becoming a veterinarian is your goal you may want to visit the site below to learn more about that particular career choice. The article below describes the educational requirements.
Training, Other Qualifications, and Advancement About this section
Veterinarians must obtain a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree and a State license. Admission to veterinary school is competitive.
Education and training. Prospective veterinarians must graduate with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M. or V.M.D.) degree from a 4-year program at an accredited college of veterinary medicine. There are 28 colleges in 26 States that meet accreditation standards set by the Council on Education of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
The prerequisites for admission to veterinary programs vary. Many programs do not require a bachelor's degree for entrance, but all require a significant number of credit hours—ranging from 45 to 90 semester hours—at the undergraduate level. However, most of the students admitted have completed an undergraduate program and earned a bachelor's degree. Applicants without a degree face a difficult task in gaining admittance.
Preveterinary courses should emphasize the sciences. Veterinary medical colleges typically require applicants to have taken classes in organic and inorganic chemistry, physics, biochemistry, general biology, animal biology, animal nutrition, genetics, vertebrate embryology, cellular biology, microbiology, zoology, and systemic physiology. Some programs require calculus; some require only statistics, college algebra and trigonometry, or pre-calculus. Most veterinary medical colleges also require some courses in English or literature, other humanities, and the social sciences. Increasingly, courses in general business management and career development have become a standard part of the curriculum to teach new graduates how to effectively run a practice.
In addition to satisfying preveterinary course requirements, applicants must submit test scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), the Veterinary College Admission Test (VCAT), or the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), depending on the preference of the college to which they are applying. Currently, 22 schools require the GRE, 4 require the VCAT, and 2 accept the MCAT.
Admission to veterinary school is competitive. The number of accredited veterinary colleges has remained largely the same since 1983, but the number of applicants has risen significantly. Only about 1 in 3 applicants was accepted in 2007.
New graduates with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree may begin to practice veterinary medicine once they receive their license, but many new graduates choose to enter a 1-year internship. Interns receive a small salary but often find that their internship experience leads to better paying opportunities later, relative to those of other veterinarians. Veterinarians who then seek board certification also must complete a 3-year to 4-year residency program that provides intensive training in one of the 39 AVMA-recognized veterinary specialties including internal medicine, oncology, pathology, dentistry, nutrition, radiology, surgery, dermatology, anesthesiology, neurology, cardiology, ophthalmology, preventive medicine, and exotic-small-animal medicine.
Licensure. All States and the District of Columbia require that veterinarians be licensed before they can practice. The only exemptions are for veterinarians working for some Federal agencies and some State governments. Licensing is controlled by the States and is not uniform, although all States require the successful completion of the D.V.M. degree—or equivalent education—and a passing grade on a national board examination, the North American Veterinary Licensing Exam. This 8-hour examination consists of 360 multiple-choice questions covering all aspects of veterinary medicine as well as visual materials designed to test diagnostic skills.
I Want To Be A Veterinarian When I'M Older And Specialize In Horses. How Do I Firstly Become A Vet And Then Specialize In Horses? I Know You Have To Go To University But Where Before And After That???? Please Help!
Becoming a veterinarian is VERY hard to do. You should start working/volunteering/shadowing a veterinarian ASAP!!!! It would be the best if you could do this for a mixed animal vet because even if you want to work with horses you need to work with everything first. You should also be focusing on your grades. You should be shooting for a state university, preferably one with a veterinary school. To become a vet you need 4 years of undergrad and 4 years of veterinary school. Veterinary school is THE toughest school to get into MUCH harder than medical school ever thought about being. There is only about 28 vet schools in the US and they only take AT MOST 100 students. The receive however THOUSANDS of applicants. Once you make it to a major university you need to be TOTALLY focused on your grades a 3.5 is considered low competitive but I have seen people with 4.0 turned down flat. You should be also getting as much experience as possible. Some vet schools require, some recommend highly (aka require), and soon most will follow in having experience of AT LEAST 100 hours in each of the following areas: Small animal, Large Animal, Research, and Exotic. This experience must be under veterinary supervision aka it can not be owning an animal, any stable work or research that is not headed by a vet. Remember becoming a veterinarian is truly a labor of love, the average salary is 60k for ALL areas of veterinary medicine however the average vet graduates with 105k in debt. There is usually little help to pay that debt off for small animal and equine students due to the popularity of the two. If you decide to specialize it depends in what ... surgery, lameness, radiography, internal medicine, etc... but it will require 2-4 and maybe more college ON TOP of vet school. This its self can be competitive in its own league since it is the best of the best competing for the spots. With a specialization you will work at a referral clinic, a highly specialized clinic, or at an university. You in most all of these settings will be working under others and will have to work your way up even with a specialization. You should not worry about that now that can wait til 3rd or 4th year of vet school. So in short remember 2 things EXPERIENCE and GRADES (A's).
