Thinking About Being A Veterinarian?
Well, I'M Only A Teen, And Am Not Old Enough To Work Yet. Ever Since I Was Little I Always Wanted To Be A Veterinarian. I Love Animals, And Do Well In School (Very Well). I Am In Advanced Classes. I Am Really Good In Math. But I'Ve Heard Where Veterinairy School Is Hard To Get Into, And It'S A Long Time. So Here Are My Questions. How Long Do You Have To Go To College. Do You Start By Volenteering At A Vet Or Shelter? Any Other Tips Would Help?
To become a veterinarian, you must first attend a 4 year university and get your Bachelor of Science degree. You would then apply to vet school and if accepted attend for another 4 years. You are looking at a minimum of eight years to become a vet. Yes, getting into vet school is highly competitive, so I would suggest a major at your 4 year university to be something you might be able to fall back on..something that will still allow you to find a job if you don't get into vet school...or something you can build on by going back for a masters degree. Yes, to get into vet school you will be required to show so many hours of "hands-on" experience working in a pet hospital you have had. They require experience as well as a degree to be accepted to vet school so it would be a good idea to start volunteering or doing an internship now which might lead to a paid position while you are in college completing your 4 year degree.
What Should I Do About A Veterinarian Reference On An Adoption Application?
My Girlfriend And I Plan On Adopting A Dog Some Time During Late Spring Or Summer From A Rescue. On Their Application, They Require A Veterinarian Reference. We Are Both Currently Students, And Although Both Of Us Have Had Dogs Growing Up In Our Families, We Have Never Had A Pet Ourselves. This Means We Do Not Have A Veterinarian To Provide Us With A Reference. Of Course, We Are In The Process Of Checking Out Vets In Our Area, But Obviously Nobody Will Give A Reference To Some One They Just Met.
We Can Explain Our Situation On The Application, But We'Re Afraid That The Fact That Were Students, Rent (The Apartment Allows Dogs), And Have No Veterinarian Reference Makes Us Look Like Dumb College Students Impulsively Getting A Dog When In Reality We Are A Stable, Mature Couple With The Time And Resources To Care For A Dog.
Is There Anything We Can Do To Effectively Communicate Our Situation In The Application? Should I Be Out Making Friends With A Veterinarian Right Now?
I wouldn't worry about it too much.If you are working with a breed specific rescue, then be certain that you have researched that breed thoroughly, Most rescues will also ask for personal references along with or instead of a vet reference. Before, you fill out your application, research the vets in your area & set up a meet & greet appointment. That way you have shown that even though you don't have a vet reference, you are serious & have established the beginnings of a relationship. Make sure you know about their rates, their hours, their emergency policies,etc. Talk to your landlord and make sure they are okay with being contacted about you bringing a dog into your home.Make sure also, that they will if neccessary, write a letter stating the same.
Now, the rescue proccess is not easy. You won't be automatically disqualified because you are students and/or rent and/or don't have a vet reference. However, be prepared for hard questions,strict rules & a possible home visit.Also be open to the fact, that the dog you think is perfect, the rescue may not think is perfect for your situation. Sometimes rescues seem like they are making it difficult for you to adopt from them. In reality, they are trying to give a dog the best second chance it can get. Many rescues run with no funding & foster dogs in private homes. They have their time & heart invested in the dogs & don't want the dog to be returned once it's adopted, They also want to make sure you are successfull with the particular dog you adopt. For example, if you are a couch potato & since you live in appartment & fell in love with a Catahoula Leopard Dog(my latest rescue adoption), a good rescue would say hell no. First the dog would be frustrated & act out and second you would be frustrated & hate the dog's insatiable energy after 3 days.Not to mention the desctructive chewing,from a frustrated hyper dog. Just in case you are not familar with the breed a Catahoula under the age of three, is like an ADHD border collie on a high dose of speed!If on the otherhand you were looking at an English Bulldog-low on the energy scale,but stubborn, you would likely be approved. Most rescues are trying to make a lifetime match:they don't want to see these dogs end up back in a shelter or abused again.
Good luck & remember to do your research.
What Veterinary Is The Best And Safest For Pets-Banfield Or A Local Vet?
I Have Used Banfield Before And I Always Thought Everything Was Ok. I Want My Pets Well Taken Care Of And Safe. Is Banfield Trustworthy/A Good Vet Or Am I Better Off With A Regular Local Vet?
I work at a local vet clinic, and many people come to us because Banfield often gives vaccines that are known to cause reactions. Also, it is like pulling teeth trying to get vaccine certificates from them. I feel our vet pays close attention to detail because if anything goes wrong, there's no corporation to bail him out. Banfield admittedly tries to keep the patient/doctor meetinsg down to 6 minutes or less.

Any Vet Techs Online?
Last Week I Found A Stray Ferrell Kitten In My Yard That Had Been Injured In What I Assumed To Be A Territorial Skirmish. I Estimate The Age At Around 5 Months. It'S Wounds Were Infected And It Was Very Ill And We Thought It Was Close To Death. We Took It In And Washed Its Wounds And Put Tribiotics On The Wounds. We Drained A Lot Of Puss From The Wounds Over The Next Five Days. We Thought We Were Making Great Progress Until Tonight. Yesterday It Developed A Fever And Seems To Be Forming A Massive Fluid Pocket On The Forehead. My Problems Now Are As Follows: 1. Vets Offices Are Closed Till Monday. (Previous Posts All Said Take Him To The Vet. The Vets Are Closed Until Monday In My Area. I Cannot Pay For An Emergency Visit If I Found A Vet That Would Come In, Nor Do I Have The Money To Drive 4 Hours To A Vet Office That Is Open On Saturday.) 2. I Am Unemployed And Do Not Have Any Money To Take This Stray To The Vet Or Buy Antibiotics. So....A: Is It Best To Drain This Pocket Of Unknown Ooze, (Puss, Blood, Etc.) Or Leave It Alone; B: Can I Give The Cat Some Of My Own Antibiotics, (Cipro, Doxy, Etc) On A Smaller Dosage? I Was Raised On A Farm And Have Given Over 10,000 Vaccinations...Yes 10,000. I'M Not Totally Ignorant...I Am Just Not Sure As To The Answers To The Questions About Cats That I Have Asked.
Again, Please Remember I Don'T Have The Money To Spare. It Is Not That I Do Not Want To Do It; It Is Simply I Don'T Have Any Money As I Have Been Unemployed Since March.
Please: If You Are Going To Put Trash On Here Just So You Can Get Your 2 Points Just Write A One Word Post.
I am not a vet tech or a vet, but I have worked in a vet clinic for over a year. When ever we get a cat with a fever and an abscess, we would lance it and drain it, then clean the wounds with a solution of iodine diluted in water (should look like weak tea). We'd also give an injection of antibiotic immediately and send the cat home with more antibiotics. Unfortunately, I know enough to tell you your cat needs antibiotics but not enough to tell you what kind or the right dosage.
Even if you can't go, you could try calling a vet clinic for advice (they don't really like when you do this with no intention of actually coming in, but it's worth a try). I've also seen some websites where you could chat with a vet online, but I don't know how reliable these are. Just make sure you can tell them what kinds of meds you have and the concentrations, as well as the cat's weight or a good estimate, otherwise they can't help you. I would try these options first, before you do anything else.
Is There A Vet Online This Evening?
My Female Cat Was In A Fight With My Male Cat About 4 Days Ago. Just Today I Saw A Large Bump On Her Hip. Looks Like She May Have Been Bitten And Now It'S Infected. She Is Not Herself And Just Lays In Her Bed. I Gave Her A Dose Of Some Cat Antibotics I Had On Hand About 8 Hours Ago. I'M Taking Her To The Vet In The Morning. Think She Will Be Okay?
I am a vet. The large bump is most likely an abcess, and it will need to be lanced and flushed with antiseptic by the vet in order to heal properly. I hope you didn't give her a dose of liquid antibiotics that you kept for several weeks, they are only good for 14 days after being mixed up. Don't give her any more, and dont' give her any aspirin or tylenol or anything else, it could be toxic for her. If you take her to the vet in the morning and let them take care of it, she will most likely be okay. Expect to leave her, and get a quote before you leave the office. Good luck.
