Help The Vet Has Only Given Our Horse 24 Hours......?
My Daughters 8 Year Old Horse Fell Ill Tuesday. We Rushed Him To The Vet. He Was Shifting All His Weight To His Hind Legs And Was Extremely Stiff. The Vet First Said It Looked Like He Founder But The Coffin Bone Was Still Attached. So We Treated Him For Foundering. Now This Morning He Started To Paw At The Ground And He Is Bloated. He Shows Signs Of Cramping And He Is Passing Black Stools That Look Like Black Mulch. We Have Treated Him For Colicing But Not Successful So Far. The Bowels Are Moving So It Is Not At Twisted Gut. Please No Matter How Small You Think It Might Be Please Let Us Know.
Either take him to a veterinary hospital or put him down now.
As good as the local vet is, he's not a specialist and doesn't have the equipment or skills to save this horse. You're just prolonging the inevitable, and the horse is hurting. If you cannot control the pain (and if he's pawing you're not!) you really must act.
I recently lost my daughter's horse due to colic. On necropsy, they discovered a pin head sized hole in his stomach which had leaked into his abdomen, causing peritonitis. No one can even guess how he got it, as there was nothing there to have caused it.
Sometimes, we never find out what was wrong, or what caused it, but still have to do the hard thing for the sake of the horse.
I'm sorry for your (coming) loss.
Are There Any Emergancy 24 Hour Vets In The Usa?
I'm Curious. Here In The Uk, Regardless Of The Opening Times Of Out Vets, We Know We Can Ring Them And Get An Emergancy Number To Call For Out Of Hours Appointments To Get Our Pets Seen Straight Away.
Do You Have The Same System In The Us?
I've Seen So Many Posts That Say "The Vets Isn't Open". Does This Mean That There Isn't Anything You Can Do?
Now, I Don't Agree With A Certain Something That Goes On In The Us (Declawing) But I Don't Think That The Us Government Or Animal Associations Would Be Cruel Enough Not To Allow Pets To Be Seen Unless It's Between The Hours Of 9Am And 5Pm.
Someone, Please Clear It Up For Me!
My vet clinic has 4 different vets. There is an apartment in the clinic and someone stays there 24/7. I live in a small rural area in the US. I think lots of times that's a cop out on here. People want free advice so they play the "vet isn't open" card and don't realize we aren't vets and could give them wrong info. Before I let my cat suffer or die in an emergency situation, I would call the vets at home. Every one has their name listed on their clinic ad in the Yellow Pages and their home number isn't hard to find. There's just really no excuse for not getting to a vet for an emergency.
Are Pet Vet Costs Different For Every Animal?
Like, Are Dog Vet Visits More Expensive Than Ferret Pet Visits? Sorry If This Is A Dumb Question..
Our practice charges more for an "exotic" pet. Dog and cat visits are less expensive, because the vet does not usually need to research during an appointment for those. Since vets must work with different species, they often will need to look up information in species-specific medical books. Also, with exotics, what comes in as "check eye" is most likely going to be more complicated that that, meaning it is often a husbandry or feeding issue, in addition to the eye that has now been compromised. So yes, there often will be more expense for certain pets. We don't charge more for ferret visits, since they are more similar to cats. It's the reptiles and birds that are much more difficult. AND quite often, by the time they come in to see us, they are on the verge of dying. Oh, and birds can stress out so badly they can die in the exam room. Still, anyone reading this ---you do need to take your birds to the vet if they are ill. Hope this helps, and it isn't a dumb question : )
Do You Need Insurance To Take Your Pet To The Vet?
I Am About To Be A New Pet Owner And I Really Need To Know Ahead Of Time.
Pet insurance is not required, but definitely helps in case your pet has an unexpected accident or illness. They can get expensive quickly, so it's nice to have insurance to cover the costs. Pet insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions, so if your pet is already sick or injured, it is unlikely that pet insurance will cover the costs to treat it.
For other costs like regular exams and vaccines, it's best to self-budget since these costs are expected. Some pet insurance companies offer coverage, but it is typically not cost-effective. (Imagine paying an extra $200 per year on your premiums for $200 worth of routine coverage...)
You can insure your dog when it's older, but it's generally best to do it as a puppy because the costs will be lower, and you can ensure that no pre-existing conditions develop while he's uninsured.
A few good questions to ask when researching pet insurance are:
1. Does the policy cover everything? Hereditary and congenital issues?
2. What are the payout limits? Will it be enough money for my worst case scenario?
3. How much does it cover for each condition?
4. What are the pricing and deductible options?
5. Is it an ongoing policy? If my pet has an illness during my first policy year, will it be covered the next policy year?
Be sure to do thorough research - Some plans don't pay based on your actual bill, but have lists of predetermined dollar amounts that they will pay for each condition which can be shockingly low in many cases. I would recommend getting an actual insurance plan that covers based on your bill so that you are never faced with a difficult and expensive situation when you *thought* you were covered.
We cover 90% of the actual bill for diagnostic testing, treatments, surgeries and medications including emergency and specialist visits. Trupanion is also the only provider to offer a $0 deductible option.

Veterinary, Medical, Or Psychological Science?
In Terms Of A Veterinary, Medical, Or Psychological Science Career, Which Is Best For Which Type Of Person? I'M Considering Majoring In One Of These, And I Can'T Decide. What Personality Types Fit Each Career Path?
In any of these cases your personality would have to be someone who wants to help, and doesn't do it for the money. I'd have to say for Psychological your personality would have to be inquisitive, and a little bit understanding and always trying to figure out more, and at least talkative. It'd be good to also be in touch with your feelings kind of person (if that made sense). You also should be able to understand people, and empathize, and be able to have a strong and tough: you'd meet a lot of people with pretty intense and terrible problems.
For veterinary, I'd also have to say someone that wants to help, all of these are going to be helper personalities, but at the same time need to love animals, and love helping them. I have a friend who'd like to be a veterinarian, and he's got a pet he takes care for intently and loves him. Usually I find that veterinarians aren't too good with humans (I have a friend who IS a veterinarian, and can't understand women too well).
Medical is probably the most basic one; you want to be able to help a patient, and I find this one the hardest. The human body is very diverse, very large, can have many diseases, and you have to be able to meet with many people a day; handle case loads, and be able to withstand the problems of death and be able to memorize everything... Of course this is just from watching some basic TV shows about the Medical areas, so I don't know too well. I can say that you need to withstand high stress areas, and be able to work on many problems at once, and once again, be wanting to always help.
