Cat Not Well.. No Vets Open.. Need Advice?
My Cat Hasn'T Eaten Properly In 2 Days... I Often Change Her Food Alot So I Thought It Was Her Being Fussy... But I Got Her Cod (Her Fav) She Nibbled And Left It. I Went Out In The Hall And There Was Sick Out There... Since That Shes Had Some Water. She Seams Herself Chasing Things (Has Occasionally Gone Off To Have Some Alone Time) Stil Purring And That. I'M Really Worried Tho

Well you probably know what was wrong by now. My bet is that her upset stomach was caused by the frequent switching of the diet. Cats are quite sensitive to that.

the best way to keep the cat healthy and to prevent vomiting and diarrhea is to give it a good diet. Cats are carnivores so it needs to be a meat based diet. None of the dry stuff, as it doesn't provide the hydration the cat needs to get from food. It's also high in carbs due to the cheap fillers they use like corn,wheat, soy, rice etc. Cats can't process carbs and they turn straight into blood sugar and fat. Their bodies are different from ours so what is healthy for us is not healthy for them.

If you feed an all wet diet, grain free, with muscle meat as first ingredient and no by-product, you should be able to avoid such problems in the future as weel as a number of serious medical conditions such as diabetes, obesity, kidney disease, UTI, renal failure and more.

Here are some websites on cat nutrition which taught me a lot about the subject, I hope it helps you as well.

Good Luck

Whats The Better Job; Vet Or Vets Nurse?
Really Want A Job With Animals, Its All I Have Wanted To Do Since I Can Remember, I Have A Lot Of Animals: 2 Gerbils, 2 Hamsters, 3 Cats, 2 Rabbits And 4 Ferrets. I Am Not In To All The Blood And Guts Part Of Being A Vet, But Don't Mind That Much. I Know A Vet Pays More, But Anyway I Was Just Wondering If Anyone Has An Opinion On Which Is The Better Job, With Reasons And How To Achieve It, I Live In England So Will Be Studying Here. Thanx.

ok well if you are not into the blood and guts neither is a good choice but if your ok with blood then my opoion is vet tech. (nurse) only because less schooling and to me ther is more hands on stuff vet techs gives shots does lab work and dose more hands on things like walking dogs and more stuff like that while vets do more importain things like surgury. but techs get less pay but require less schooling so it is up to you we can not make the decision for you but there is the facts.

Ps check out my question:

Pet Rat Questions! Part 2?
So Here They Are ( Continuing My First Questions ) 1. When Buying A Rat, Where Do I Buy? (I Don'T Think I Have A Breeder Near Me) 2. How Long/Tall/Wide Should A Cage For 2 Be? 3. How Often Should I Give Fresh Fruit/Veggies? 4. How Often To Clean The Cage For 2 Females? (If They'Re Pottie Trained) 5. First Supplies Needed When/ Before Buying The Rat? 6. If They Have Eachother, How Often Should They Be Out Each Day? Thanks!

1. Pet stores normally get their "stock" from breeding mills where conditions are no better than awful. It's best never to buy from stores selling live animals, don't support the practice. Finding a breeder can be hard and sometimes take time. I personally would always check online classified ads in my area (kijiji and cragslist). I've never purchased from a reputable breeder because they are a rarity in my location too. But I would see TONS of ads advertising accident-litters, or otherwise unwanted pet rats. You should also check shelters ( to adopt from!

2. A pair require a minimum of 4 cubic feet. When looking at cages, you can just use this calculator to do the math for you:
Ideally, you need something suitable for ferrets.

3. Rats need a variety of veggies/fruits, as well as other plain human foods (plain cooked pasta, meat, egg, etc). You can offer these daily or every other day, but try to change them around as much as possible so it's not the same every time.

4. Keeping in mind that rats do not come potty trained, and teaching them will take some time, as long as you empty the pan out each day, the cage should last a couple weeks. However until they have it down, you need to clean it out weekly. You should use fleece rather than loose bedding, and just launder that weekly.

5. You should have the entire cage already set up before you bring them home. That includes a food dish, water bottle, multiple hiding boxes, hammocks, litter box, etc.

6. Minimum is an hour a day. I personally left their cage open while at home, and they came and went as they pleased. But this takes a rat-proofed room, and taming! :)

About Sims 2 Pets Question?
My Sims Get Really Tired And Ive Heard That You Can Get The Toddler To Sleep In The Dog Bed And Play With The Dogs Toys... My Toddler Wont Sleep In The Dog Bed... Is There A Cheat For It? And Dont Say All That Crap About &Quot;Not Meant To Sleep In Dog Beds!&Quot; Thanks :)

I found this quote from the sims 2 toddler wiki:

"If the Pets expansion pack is installed, a hungry toddler can eat pet food from a pet bowl, and may do so autonomously. If the Apartment Life expansion is also installed, toddlers can sleep in pet beds, thus eliminating the need for somebody to put them in their crib."

Which means that they have to do it on their own and cannot be directed to do so.

I do remember my Toddlers in the sims 2 eating from the pet bowls when I wasn't looking.

Perhaps you can leave them unattended near a pet bowl and see what they do.

How Much Can A Veterinary Assistant Make?
I Am Living In Ohio Right Now And May Be Moving To Colorado Soon, Any Differences In Salary? How Long Is The Training? And What Can I Promote To After Recieving My License?

The veterinary assistant is an entry level position at most animal hospitals, which means you may be able to find a job without going through any formal training. You would start with the more mundane tasks such as cleaning cages, exercising dogs, doing laundry, and cleaning and stocking the rooms of the hospital. You would receive on the job training that will prepare you for more advanced tasks such as animal restraint, surgical assistance, medication administration, blood collection, helping take x-rays, and assisting with laboratory tests. You might be expected to cross train as a receptionist too.

Employers hiring veterinary assistants will look on the resume for any type of animal care experience (vet, pet store, ranch, boarding kennel, 4H or FFA, etc.), evidence of dependibility (prior work experience, good school attendance record), and education (high school, any animal related courses). They generally are not impressed with the fact that you've cared for your own pets, but if you've volunteered for an animal organization or had your own pet-sitting business, be sure to include that.

If you have any background in organization, management, or interacting with the public, that is a plus too.

When you visit the hospital, make sure you are clean and well groomed and dress in conservative clothing. Conduct yourself as a mature, professional adult, but still be cheerful, friendly and outgoing. They are looking for someone who is serious about doing a good job and who is easy to get along with.

Because there are more jobs than there are quality vet assistants, most responsible people are successful finding their first veterinary job without formal education. However, any veterinary assisting or vet tech classes you take will be a feather in your cap. Check the offerings of your local community colleges. The American Animal Hospital Association also offers an online veterinary assisting course.

Salary for a veterinary assistant varies tremendously by geographic region, individual hospital, and the employee's skill level. At the bottom end, salaries start at minimum wage and slightly higher. Hourly rates of $8 - 12 are fairly typical, although higher salaries are possible for experienced assistants who take on expanded responsibilities.

The next step up from being a veterinary assistant is to become a Registered Veterinary Technician. This requires completing a college program in Veterinary Technology at a school approved by the Veterinary Medical Board of the state in which you intend to work. Most programs are offered by community colleges and take about two years. After completing college, you must pass a licensing exam and register with the state's Veterinary Medical Board.

In order to maintain your RVT license, you will have to pay periodic renewal fees and may (depending on the individual state) be required to attend regular continuing education.

RVTs tend to be assigned the most advanced paraprofessional tasks within the veterinary hospital and often work with minimal supervision. Although salaries for RVTs are higher on average, the range overlaps with that for veterinary assistants. Some hospitals place a greater value on hiring RVTs and will pay more, while others pay RVTs and experienced vet assistants similar wages. An annual salary of $25,000 - $40,000 is typical.

Both assistants and RVTs can move into management positions with adequate experience and/or training. This allows an ambitious employee to break out of the relatively low salary ranges for assistants and RVTs.

The RVT license also opens doors to many positions outside of private practice, such as pharmaceutical sales, laboratory animal care, animal shelter work, teaching, and the military. Many of these positions are higher paid, some as much as $60,000 - $80,000 annually.

Working in a veterinary hospital is physically demanding, stressful, and relatively low paying. However, it's also exciting, emotionally rewarding, and mentally stimulating. It is not a field to get into "for the money" because there are easier ways to make higher wages elsewhere. However, for those who really have a passion for it, there is no other type of work that can compare.

I wish you the best of luck in whatever career path you choose to follow.

Here are a few helpful websites for information about working in Ohio or Colorado:

Want To Go To College To Be A Veterinary Technician?
I Love Animals And I Enjoy Taking Care Of Them. I Want To Go To College, But I Just Want To Be A Vet Tech, Not A Veterinarian. Is It Possible To Become A Vet Tech By Going To College For 4 Years?? And What Would The Salary Be For A Vet Tech? What Classes Would I Have To Take In College?? Thanks For All Answers!!!! :)

Veterinary technicians are required (in most states) to have a 2 year degree in veterinary technology from an AVMA accredited veterinary technology program, to have passed the Veterinary Technician National Exam and a state exam in order to be credentialed. They are also generally required to attend a set number of continuing education courses each year to keep up with changes in veterinary medicine. Veterinary technicians are educated in veterinary anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, animal husbandry, surgical assisting, anesthesia, medical nursing, diagnostics such as radiology and ultrasonography, clinical pathology, parasitology, medical terminology and record keeping, biological collection and sample handling and preperation, etc. They can also specialize in areas such as emergency and critical care, internal medicine, anesthesia, dentistry, behavior and equine nursing.

The American Veterinary Medical Association maintains a list of accredited degree programs on their website:

In some states, the use of the title "veterinary technician" and the practice of veterinary technology is recognized as profession and licensure is required. In other states, veterinary technicians are registered or certified. The laws that govern veterinary technicians vary from state to state so for specific information on the laws a person should check their state veterinary practice act or contact their state veterinary licensing board.

The daily workload can vary greatly depending on the type of practice you work in and the area of the country you are in. Most often the workload will be variable in any practice--some days will be like a wild rollercoaster ride while others are so boring and slow that you have a hard time staying awake.

A very general list of things that a veterinary technician would do would include collecting patient histories, collect biological samples (blood, urine, feces, etc), running diagnostic tests, monitoring and medicating hospitalized animals, assisting in surgery, administering and monitoring anesthesia, performing dental cleanings, providing treatment for outpatients as prescribed by the attending veterinarian, filling prescriptions, answering client questions on preventative medicine, disease processes, medications, etc, maintaining inventory, caring for surgical and medical equipment such as anesthesia machines, taking radiographs, entering medical records, etc.

Pay and benefits generally are low and make it hard to get by. You have to really pick and choose your jobs in order to make a comfortable living. I was single and working as a "well-paid veterinary technician" for many years and still had a hard time just making ends meet. Licensed veterinary technicians average about $17 per hour, but you have to take into account the cost of living in the states where technicians are licensed. In states where licensure is not practiced the pay even for credentialed technicians is lower than that.

Before enrolling in a veterinary technology program, it is a good idea to volunteer or take a job at a veterinary hospital to see what the job of a veterinary technician really entails. Many people think that it will suit them but find out differently once they start school. Having personal experience in a veterinary facility will also help you to excel in your classes by giving you real-world application for what you are learning.

Also, contact your state veterinary technician association. They can give you detailed advice on the requirements for being a veterinary technician in your state and also help you to choose an appropriate school.
