Can Birds Be Infected With Human Diseases From A Hospital Setting???
What Should I Do With This Hurt Baby Bird?
When I Got Home From Work A Couple Of Hours Ago I Found A Baby Bird On My Front Steps. He Has Feathers And Looks Like He Has A Scab Under His Wing, But Otherwise Seems Fine. He Was Hopping Around And Chirping And Trying To Fly, So I Took Him In My Place And Fed Him Some Moist Bread Crumbs. He Fell Asleep For A Little While, And I Looked Up What To Do With Hurt Fledgings. The Websites I Read Told Me To Put Him Back Outside, So He'S There Now, Chirping Away And Totally Helpless Outside My Window (I Live On Ground Level). His Parents Seem To Have Found Him And Fly Back And Forth To See Him, But They Dont Seem To Know What To Do With Him. I Don'T Know What To Do And It'Ll Be Dark Out In An Hour Or So. Should I Bring Him In?!?! There'S Tons Of Cats In This Neighborhood That Roam Around And He Will Not Make It Through The Night Out There (If He Escapes The Cats Until Then That Is!)
I'M Hoping Someone Can Help. Thanks!
my cat always brings in baby birds so im kind of an expert :)
bring him inside because there is nothing the parents can do for him if he cant fly and get back into the nest.
put him in a bucket with a couple of small bits of soaked bread (if he doesnt eat, one night without food shouldnt kill him) and an old towel to line the bucket and leave him in a warm place (i put them by the hot water cylinder)
in the morning if hes still alive take him to the animal and bird hospital. if you dont no where one is ask a vet. they take really good of them and when he is ready and can fly they will release him.
also if you have an old soft toy put that in for company and something to snuggle up to
What Should I Do About Getting My Dog The Vet Care She Needs?
I Have An 18 Year Old Chihuahua/Beagle Mix Named Trixie. Over The Course Of A Month Or Two, She Has Developed Arthritis In Her Back Legs And Also Around Her Hips A Bit. I Called Her Vet To See If There Was Anything I Could Do For Her, And She Suggested Giving Her One Half Of A Baby Aspirin Twice A Day. It Seemed To Work At First, But Now I'Ve Noticed That Her Gait Seems To Be A Bit Off Now. She'S Not Limping Or Anything, And Still Plays, But You Can Definitely Tell That She Is Getting Stiff In Her Back Legs.
Anyway, She Also Has Epilepsy And Needs To Have A Blood Test Done Next Month To Make Sure Her Medication Levels Are Ok. Just For That Test Is Nearly $90. Since Her Gait Seems To Be Changing, I'D Also Like To Have Her Get A Check Up, And Maybe Have Some X-Rays Done. An Office Visit Is $40, And An X-Ray Is $90 For The First, Then $25 For Each One Afterwords.
I Am On Social Security, So I Don'T Make A Lot Of Money. I Would Do Anything I Could To Keep Her Healthy And Happy, But I Really Don'T Know That I Can Afford All Of That. With All Of That, And Not Even Getting Any X-Rays Done, It Would Cost $140, If She Needed An X-Ray, It Could Cost Me At Least $230.
The Vet I Take Her To Does Not Allow Payment Plans, So Scratch That Idea... I Don'T Know What To Do.
Could Anyone Offer Me Some Advice On What I Should Do?
Does the vet take CareCredit or any other plan?
I am like you..... I am very low income on social security....
I give my vet $25 per month every month.. in addition to the $20 each month that I spend at his office on Comfortis for flea prevention...... this way, I have a standing credit balance with him
apx 8 months ago, an idiot meter reader maced my dog..... even though my dog wasn't doing anything (several neighbors witnessed this)... I did the first response as recommended by the vet (pour saline solution all over his face in an attempt to keep the pepper spray from ulcerating his eyelid or burning his cornea)
anyway... his inner eyelid swelled despite home treatment.... and I called them to let them know I was bringing him in (it was about an hour before they closed & would take me half an hour to get there)... I wanted to make sure they could see him rather than have the expense of the emergency vet
My dog is a Service Dog.... so this was critically important to me
The vet responded to the receptionist & said he would wait until 5:15 (giving me an extra 15 minutes)... and he also offered (for an extra $50 to have one of the techs come to my house instead of me coming there)
Point being..... this visit was only 1 month after Remie's annual exam & at this particular annual exam I had enough money built up to be able to afford his "geriatric bloodwork" (he was 9 in June).... I had only $25 credit balance.... he & I talked about this after I got there..... this exam and the treatment was $200..... he allowed me to pay him an extra $25 per month (very difficult for me as there is no extra money... I ate sweet potatoes instead of normal meals for @ 4 months)
bearing in mind.... and I am sure this applies to you as well.... I already eat on less than $4 per day... I eat healthy, but there isn't much room to cut back.....and I live with extreme frugality just to be able to afford his flea prevention and his normal vetting
My vet also "doesn't offer payment plans"..... he & I came up with this arrangement apx 3 years ago as a means for me to be able to afford the annual vetting and (under normal circumstances)
there are some clients who he gives leeway to...... one elderly woman & her teen daughter were allowed to give post-dated checks in monthly payment amounts & the balance was reduced from it's original total by the teen volunteering to help clean kennels an hour each day after school & also some time on the weekends
So, my point is this: at least go to the vet's office & talk with them.. see what they can work out
If they refuse to work with you... then call every vet in your area... offer them postdated checks or whatever they will accept
and, I would encourage you to look at CareCredit to see if you can get it & then look for a vet in your area that accepts it
I have known several people who have had good success with ester-c plus vitamin e supplements to help with problematic hips/spine... including one foster who I worked with who was so lame he was unable to walk without assistance.... it was like a miracle that after 30 days of ester-c and vitamin e he was able to walk on his own... and after 4 months, he was able to run
The ester-c plus vitamin e protocol was recommended by an orthopedic vet & a physical therapy vet
Flower: It is a good idea, but in many places the Humane Society or ASPCA do not offer assistance for vetting. I don't know what state the person who posted the question is from.... so, I can't say that there is any help out there for them
I live in Birmingham, AL.... none of our shelters offer anything like that... and only the kill-shelters (like our humane society will even take owner surrenders... but then put them down rather than vet them)
I know..... many people with Service Dogs.... who can't find any help at all, even for emergency vetting, simply because the area they are in doesn't have the same assistance as some other areas.... I think it is great that you throw it out there..... but that isn't true everywhere....
Why Do Some Dog Owners Say Here They Can Not Afford Vet Care??? Read More Below!!!?
Sit At Home And They Are Using Their High Speed Internet.
Well, Prioritize People! Get Rid Your Internet And Care For Your
Dog! You Keep Looking For Home Remedies, And Home Remedies Don'T Always Cut It!
Maybe this person is using the net at their library. Or a relative's house.
Maybe they just lost their job.
Maybe the vet bill is unexpected.
Maybe the vet bill is much higher than what the person had anticipated they may have to spend.
Maybe they just got sick themselves.
Why shouldn't everyone have pets (minus idiots who can't train them right and let them run loose and have babies). Why is it only rich people should have pets? Maybe instead, vet care shouldn't be so bloody expensive. Maybe people should be able to get subsidized vet care.
Sometimes a person falls suddenly on hard times. A shelter likely won't take a dog that is sick and needing surgery... or if they do it will only be to euthanize it. Not every city or town or even province/state has a rescue organization that might help out.
Maybe they can't easily get a loan, or don't have a credit card to help them pay for stuff.
Ask why they specifically can't afford vet care.
Is My Desire To Become A Vet For Wildlife Animals Impractical?
I'Ve Been Thinking Of Becoming A Vet, And Love Wildlife, So Have Been Thinking About Becoming A Wildlife Vet. However, Is This Impractical? My Family Isn'T Exactly Rolling In Money Either, So Is It Impractical Schooling Wise As Well?
It is possible to become a wildlife vet, but these jobs are hard to find. Don't let that discourage you though, if it is what you want to do! There are other jobs working with wildlife if you decide not to go the route of vet school. If you do go to vet school, you may find out that you like some other area of vet med even more than wildlife and end up doing something completely different, but something you love! That's the nice thing about vet med, there are so many opportunities and different ways to go! Vet school is expensive, but you will be considered independent from your parents and will be able to get loans to cover the cost, so if it is what you really want, don't let the money discourage you! Here's a little about becoming a vet:
Most people who go to vet school have a bachelor's degree, but it is not required to get into vet school. There are only 28 veterinary schools in the country (There are also several international schools that are AVMA accredited) and entrance to these is highly competitive, so not having a bachelor's can make it more difficult.
The schools' requirements vary slightly, so look into the specific school you are interested in first- I have included a link in my sources to a descriptor page with requirements for each school. Most require biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, physics, math, and English. You can complete the courses you need at any college that offers them, including a community college if money is an issue. Schools also require a certain amount of experience with animals (having a pet does not count in this!) and experience working with a veterinarian. You will also need to take the GRE or MCAT before applying. This may seem like a lot, but the schools want to know you can handle the course load in vet school and know about the career. Tip: keep a record of your activities, hours, and honors- you can put things on your vet apps as far back as high school!
Where you apply depends a lot on where you live. Vet schools reserve a certain number of seats for students who are residents of the state the vet school is located in. This is where your best chance of being accepted is, but you can also apply to out of state schools. The Veterinary Medical College Application Service handles the main application. Most schools also have a supplemental application which you must get from the school itself. Most schools have interviews, but some do not.
Once you make it through the application process and are accepted, (yay!) the hard work begins. Veterinary school is four years. It is medical school, but for multiple species. Typically the structure is three years of classroom work and one year of clinical training. Each program is a little different, check into the individual schools' websites for more information. Making it through vet school is difficult. You will be in class for 8-9 hours each day during the week and will need to spend evenings and weekends studying. During clinical rotations you may be required to be at the hospital at all hours. You can also do an internship or residency after graduation to become more specialized.
Please also take cost into account when planning your undergraduate course work! The average vet student in 2010 graduated with about $130,000 in debt. Vet school tuition alone (this does not include books, room, board, and other expenses) ranges from the cheapest being $13,000 (North Carolina, in state students) to almost $60,000 (Ohio, out of state students) per year. The majority of financing is going to be in loans, which are all unsubsidized starting this year, so interest will be accruing while you are in school. There are not a lot of grants and scholarships for professional students the way there are for undergraduate students.
The average starting salary for a vet is between $43,000 and $71,000 depending on what area you are going in to. The median annual wage for veterinarians was $82,000 in 2010. Veterinarians have the worst debt to salary ratio of any of the professional school graduates (lawyers, physicians, dentists, pharmacists, etc,.) There are no veterinarians I know of who got into the career because they wanted to make lots of money. For more information on salary statistics and the career see the link to the Bureau of Labor information in my sources.
If you are still interested in becoming a veterinarian after reading all of this then fantastic! A good way to start getting a feel for the career is to call some local vets and ask if you could spend an afternoon shadowing them! There are also other careers with animals that you may not have considered that would be just as rewarding- I have put a link to a website about animal related careers in my sources, take a look at that!
Best of luck to you!!
I Can'T Afford To Get Vet Meds For 4 Animals. Home Safe Remedys For Cats And Dogs For Rice Looking Worms?
Those are tapeworm segments, not roundworm as someone suggested. Not only do your animals need a safe and effective wormer for *at least* tape worm they need a safe and effective flea treatment as well. There are no home remedies, only appropriate wormers. Over the counter crap is a poor use of your money, as many of those things are harmful or ineffective. If you don't have money to go to the vet for proper treatment, surely you don't have money for an emergency vet visit from flea product poisoning. Your best bet is either suck it up and get them to the vet to be properly treated, or call you local shelters to see if any of them offer low-cost basic vet services. Many of them can provide you safe and effective wormers and flea treatments at their cost.
