Canine Epilepsy Is It Life Threating Im So Worried About My Poodle This Is The 2Nd Time She Had A Sezure
The first thing i would do is talk to my vet about the seizures. Make sure that your dog is not ingesting something that might cause seizures such as chocolate. Keep a diary of the seizures, the date and time that they occurred and how long they lasted. You may find a correlation to something that may help determine if the seizure is linked to anything in particular. A friend who has an epileptic dog has determined that he's more prone to seize when bad weather is coming and at that time she increases his medication.
You may want to read more about seizures and epliepsy here:
http://www.canine-epilepsy.com/ they have a email list that may provide more alternative methods of treatment. Read as much as possible on epilepsy and begin to ask hard questions. Remeber that you must be your dog's advocate on this and much of the standard medication for this is dangerous at best. You must detemine what course of treatment to seek and whether the benefits outweight the risks.
Finally, if it is determined that the dog actually has idiopathic epilepsy (meaning that the seizures have no known cause and are probably inherited) and you have not already done so, make sure to spay or neuter your dog. Genetics plays a strong role in idiopathic epilepsy and it's devistating to pass this on to other owners.
Is Skin Cancer In Canines Contagious To Other Canines?
Is Canine Skin Cancer Contagious To Other Canines?
No. The only contagious cancer for canines is Canine Transmissable Venereal Tumor, or CTVT, which is sexually transmitted, so it can be prevented by spaying/neutering.
Good Colleges For Medical Or Veterinary Programs?
Answer Both If Possible- I'm Already Looking Into A&M
I know Tufts, UC Davis and Cornell have both. Besides those three I'm not sure. All three of these are excellent schools.
Here's a list of the 28 US vet schools. It's probably easiest to look at these to see if they have medical schools then trying to look at the 150 medical schools to see if they have vet schools.

Should I Take My Dog To The Vet For Eating Stuffed Animals?
I Have A 6 Pound Chihuahua Maltese And She'S Been Doing It For Over A Year, Probably Over Two; She'Ll Get Little Stuffed Animals, Play With Them And Rip Out The Stuffing, Then Gnaw On The Fabric. She Sometimes Bites Pieces Off And Swallows Them, But When I See Her Do That I'Ll Take The Toy Away And She Gets In Trouble. I Saw An Article The Other Day That Talked About Intestinal Blockage In Dogs That Eat Foreign Objects And I Got Scared So I Looked Up The Symptoms For It And She Has None Of Them. She Eats Normally, She Runs Around All The Time, She'S Very Hyper, Normal Bowel Movements. The Only Thing I'Ve Seen Is That She Throws Up More Than My Other Chihuahua And Sometimes After Drinking A Lot Of Water She'Ll Cough It Up. Sometimes I Do Find Little Pieces Of The Animals In Her Poop, But She Doesn'T Have Any Trouble Going. She Doesn'T Eat The Eyes, I Always Cut Them Out Before I Give Them To Her, Or The Stuffing. Just The Fabric.
Should I Take Her To The Vet To Get Checked? We'Re Very Tight For Money Right Now, Our Income Has Dropped Over $1,000 Monthly, But I'M Very Scared That There Might Be Something Wrong And Fear That If I Don'T Get Her At Least A Check Up Something Bad Could Happen. And When I Do Take Her For Her Routine Check Ups, The Vet Doesn'T Find Anything Wrong With Her. She'S Been Doing It For A Long Time, So I Don'T Know If I Should Be Worried So Much.
Also, Are There Any Organizations That Will Help With Vet Bills? I Live In California.
You are right to be concerned! But your dog doesn't have an intestinal obstruction and doesn't need to be seen right now. However, the majority of cases I see that do have an intestinal blockage have a history like your dog's. They have been known to eat things and swallow things they shouldn't be. Some of them get away with it for years. I had one client who told me she would find her dog's toys out in the yard in piles of poop. It's amazing how large of an object a dog can pass. But eventually something is going to get stuck.
When a dog develops an obstruction, they usually will start vomiting. They have a hard time keeping food down or maybe won't have any appetite at all. They become depressed. Depending on how long it has been going on, they may also stop defecating, or develop diarrhea. It comes on pretty fast, and progresses pretty fast. Depending on where the blockage is and whether it a complete or partial blockage, they may or may not be able to drink or hold water down. Dehydration is common.
Having a GI obstruction is a serious condition and can be fatal. With early treatment, usually these animals do just fine. But surgery or endoscopy can be expensive.
I recommend that you find only toys that you dog can't tear apart. I also recommend putting some money aside each month and build up a dog-care savings account. You can use this for annual exams and vaccines, and god forbid if your dog ever does develop a GI obstruction you will have the money to treat the dog. Many dogs have been euthanized after developing a GI obstruction when the owner couldn't afford the cost to treat the dog.
Hope this helps.
I Want To Become A Vet For Underwater/Marine Animals?
If I Want To Work With Animals That Live Underwater, Would I Be Able To With Them At Places Like Seaworld? As One Of The Vetenarians There?
I'Ve Always Loved Seaworld And Aquatic Animals And I Just Wonder If Its Possible To Have A Job Position As A Vet There?
I can think that if you REALLY want to get into it the best collage you should probbably go to it A&M down in Corpus Christie (Texas). They have a collage that speciaizes in Marine life but as for getting a job there, yes its possible. It will probbably take a lot of work, because you'll have to work you're way up. The care of the animals will be a very serious job. Every one of those animals are worth a TON of money, considering how many mariene animals are endangered nowadays. But of course, every place with animals has to have a vet. Espically a place with exoctic animals.
