Neutering My Pet Canine Will Make Him Less Agressive?
I Owe A Cannine 1 Yr 9 Mnts Old Which I Am Not Sure Whether He Is A Dog Or A Wolf. He Has Long Muzzle, Short Folded Ear,Looks Like A Big Husky, Has Thick Fur And Is Grey In Colour And Is Very Strong.
He Is Very Agressive Towards Other Animals And Strangers And Is Very Protective... He Killed Our Adult Rottwiller And A Cow Calf Some Months Ago... He Is So Agressive That At Times It Becomes Very Hard For Us To Control Him.. Due To His Huge Size And Strength If He Pulls On The Lease We Have To Give It Up.... He Is 31&Quot; Tall And Weights 204 Lbs.
I Have Read On The Net That Castration Makes An Animal Less Agressive.... So Will It Help My Canine??
Will It Let Him Become Less Agressive??
Canine Herpes + Puppies, Please Help? Im Confused?
Hi! I Am Adopting A Mix Pup From A Local Shelter. I Just Found Out A Bunch Of The Pups From The Litter Died Of Canine Herpes. 3 Survived. So Do I Have Any Worries With The One I Am Adopting? Will She Fall Ill? I Don'T Know Much Of Anything About This. How Come She Survived While Others Didnt? Can Anyone Explain All Of This To Me? Thx!!!
Canine herpes is passed during breeding or from mother to puppies. It can cause still birth, miscarriage or death of the puppies in the first 3 weeks. Most likely your puppies entire litter had/has the diseases and yours along with 2 others were just strong enough to fight or were treated. Your puppy will always be a carrier (just like a person with herpes) so should be spayed as soon as possible to prevent spreading the disease. That said most dogs over 3 weeks carry the disease without showing any symptoms so you should have no problems from it.

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: https://www.avma.org/ProfessionalDevelop...
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.
