Would It Be Rude To Ask The Vet To Clip My Dogs Nails?
My 8 Year Old Chihuahua Screams Like Those Girls In Horror Movies Then Starts Doing The Death Roll Like An Alligator And Starts Biting If I Try And Clip His Nails. So Not Surprisingly His Nails Are Overgrown. I Plan To Take Him To Remove Plaque From His Teeth Which He Has To Be Put Under. So Can The Vet Clip His Nails For Me While Hes Sleeping? Would He Be Offended By It Or Just Charge Me Extra $10 Or Something?

Please ask the vet to address the nails while your dog is under anesthesia. If the nails are very overgrown, it will be painful for them to be clipped. Having him asleep will make it much less painful and scary, plus, if the quicks are cut back, the vet can stop bleeding and tend to them.

The vet will clip nails for you. Address the overgrown nail issue during his dental and ask for a schedule to bring him in for regular trims. Many dogs dislike having their nails done, but will act better for the vet staff than their families.

My vet does a complimentary nail clip when dogs are under for general procedures. Your vet may charge, but it will be a small fee. Most vets charge $15 or less to do nails. Good luck.

What Do You Love About Being A Vet?
Im Asking All Vets Out There Plz Tell Me

I am not a vet.

I did however ask one of my cats' vets about why she became one and in her case it was because she had already been working as a biologist doing boring lab work, she had always loved animals, and wanted to combine her interest in the life sciences with actual hands-on work helping animals. She was almost 30 before she went back to school to become a vet.

In her case, she likes helping animals.

She is really a good vet too and I like her a lot.

Does My Dog Need Medicine?
He'S Ten Now But His Temperament Has Changed A Lot In The Last Few Years. He Used To Play With My Cat And Play With Other Dogs But Now He Gets Upset When Anything Is Out Of Line He Gets Upset If I Scream If Theres A Spider Or Something Thats Scares Me He Will Try To Attack It. He'S An Australian Shepard So He'S Always Had That In Him To Heard And Everything But He'S Got So Much Worse.I Can Hardly Walk Him Anymore. I Know They Put Dogs On Anti Anxiety Meds But Is It Just Cause He'S Getting Older And Cranky???

Just like people, dogs personalities change as they age. Your dog is a senior dog and his personality is probably changing. My dog is 15 and his personality has changed some. All you can do is to accept them as they age and change. You could take him to the vet for a wellness check and tell him about the changes. He may or may not feel that medication is in order. Only he can tell you for sure.

Can You Give A Nursing Dog Mother Medicine?
Can You Give A Nursing Dog Mother Medicine? My Mom'S Dog Just Gave Birth To Puppies Four Weeks Ago And They Are Still Nursing Of Course But She'S Starting To Get A Fever, My Mom Was Wondering If It Was Okay To Give Her A Very Small Dose Of Medication To Bring The Fever Down.

It's inappropriate tot ask US. CALL YOUR VET. We are not vets and we do NOT KNOW!

SOME medicines are safe to give to a nursing mother, but others are NOT! Only your vet knows what you can give safely. If you give something that is not safe, you can kill the pups.

If you want to ask a vet online, go to Marvista Vet website and you can chat with a vet by email. I've done it and the vets there are very nice about answering questions.
I think the vet will also tell you that you NEED to take mama dog to the vet early tomorrow.
I think the vet will tell you what you can do SAFELY for her fever.
Make sure you tell the vet what other symptoms the mama dog has. That is important information that you failed to give us here. -!-

Veterinary Technician.....Information?
Hi, I'M Doing Research On Veterinary Technicians And Their Job Specifically. I Need To Know What Classes Are Necessary To Become One, What Degrees I Would Need, Education Required, Skills, How I Would Become Certified. Everything That I Need To Know About This Job Because I Want To Have This As My Career. Can Anyone Help Me? I Need To Know Everything Asap. Please And Thank You

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:

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.

Veterinary technicians earn between $23,000 and $48,000 a year based upon the most recent survey published. The state you live in, the type of facility you work in and your experience all play into what is typical income where you are. The low range is typically in the areas where veterinary technicians aren't required by law to be credentialed.

Credentialing is the recognition of advanced education or training and is granted in most states either through a state governing board, state veterinary professional association or state veterinary technical association. Registration, licensure and certification are all types of credentials and which one is granted just depends on who is granting it and what title is used in that state. In many states you cannot use the title "veterinary technician" or perform certain tasks unless you are a credentialed veterinary technician. Because laws governing veterinary technicians vary from state to state, you should contact your state veterinary technician association or veterinary licensing board to learn about the specific requirements for credentialing in your state.

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

What Is Pre-Veterinary?
I've Been Researching Different Colleges, Trying To Make Up My Mind Which One I'd Like To Attend. Or, More Importantly, What I'd Like To Major In. I've Found That Several Colleges In My Area Offer Pre-Veterinary. What Is This? What Type Of Education Is Required For A Vet?

Pre-Veterinary is classes/courses you need to take before you can apply to a Veterinarian school. However, Veterinarian school requirements can be meet with other degrees, such as Zoology, it doesn't necessarily have to be met by a pre-vet program.
Preparation Advice -
Students interested in a career in veterinary medicine should begin their preparation by doing well in general science and biology in junior high school. They need to take a strong science, math, and biology program in high school. To be considered for admission to a college of veterinary medicine, a student must first complete undergraduate preveterinary medical coursework, which usually includes three to four years of college study, with specific course requirements. Each college of veterinary medicine establishes its own preveterinary requirements. Typical requirements include basic language and communication skills, social sciences, humanities, mathematics, chemistry, and the biological and physical sciences.

Preveterinary Coursework -
Preveterinary coursework can be completed at many colleges and universities, including those at which the veterinary medical schools are located. Students should check with the veterinary college to which they plan to apply to be sure they take all required courses. They should also be certain that credits from the preveterinary courses they take at the school of their choice are acceptable to the veterinary colleges.

Completion of a preveterinary program does not guarantee admission to a college of veterinary medicine. Admission to veterinary school is highly competitive. Applicants usually have grades of "B" or better, especially in the sciences and may be required by the veterinary school admission policies to take appropriate examinations such as the Graduate Record Examination. Most colleges give preference to candidates with animal or veterinary related experience. The number of qualified applicants who are admitted to veterinary colleges nationwide varies from year to year, but the average acceptance rate is approximately 43%.

See the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges Web site for additional information.

The Phases of Professional Study -
In most colleges of veterinary medicine, the professional program comprises two phases. During the first phase, preclinical sciences, such as anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and microbiology are emphasized. Most of the students' time is spent in classroom and laboratory study.

The second phase of professional study is principally clinical. Students learn the principles of medicine and surgery in the classroom and through hands-on clinical experience. Students learn to apply their knowledge in a clinical setting under the supervision of graduate veterinarians on the faculty. In the clinics, students treat animals, perform surgery, and deal with owners who use the school's clinical services.

The Clinical Curriculum -
The clinical curriculum includes study of infectious and noninfectious diseases, diagnostic and clinical pathology, obstetrics, radiology, clinical medicine, anesthesiology, and surgery. Students also study public health, preventive medicine, toxicology, clinical nutrition, professional ethics, and business practices.

The Academic Experience -
Veterinary medical study is difficult. Students learn about many different animals and diseases, and become skilled in surgical techniques and many laboratory and diagnostic procedures.

A typical veterinary medical student spends about 4,000 hours in classroom, laboratory, and clinical study. Because the time required for instruction absorbs most of a student's day, many evening and weekend hours are spent doing reading assignments, library research, and independent study.
