My Cat Was Kicked In The Side, Hard. I Know She Needs A Vet, But There Are No 24 Hour Vets In My Town?
She Is Responsive, Will Eat And Can Be Encouraged To Play A Little. Heart Rate Is 80 (A Bit Slow) And Respiration Is Normal, About 30. Her Gums Are Pink And Blood Flow Seems Good. She Will Be Going To The Vet First Thing Am. She Does Seem A Little Quieter Than Usual And Wants To Lay On My Bed Which Is Unusual, My Son Belongs To Her, Not Me. Have I Covered All The Bases? And Can Anyone Tell Me If There Is Anything Else I Need To Do?
P.S. She Is An Indoor Cat That Just Happened To Run Out The Door As An A$$Hole Walked By. He Kicked Her As Hard As He Could And Then He Ran Away. Good Thing He Ran, Or I'D Probably Be In Jail Right Now. I Will Be Sitting Up With Her All Night.
So far, so good. The cat doesn't appear to be seriously damaged. Now all you have to do is keep it quiet and still for the night. Do not try to medicate it and stop feeding it. If it has internal injuries it should not be eating. Leave it water but no food and don't handle it unless you absolutely have to. If it is seriously injured it probably won't want to move much anyway.
Good luck at the vets.
Vet Said Not To Give My Puppy Or Food For 24 Hours?
My Puppy Been Puking Since Monday After I Gave Him Worm Medicine And The Vet Said Not To Give Him Food Or Water For 24 Hours. Just Give Him Ice Cubes...But He Is So Hungry. He Is Watching My Other Dog Eat And He Is Crying And Trying To Get To Her When Shes Eating. Tomorrow She Said Just Give Him A Little Lean Hamburger N Rice...Is There Anything I Can Give Him Now That Would Be Okay For Him Because He Is So Hungry And He Is Skinny The Way It Is And I Hate Making Him Starve.
Follow the vet's instructions. I know it's hard but sometimes an animal's stomach needs time for the inflammation and irritation to calm down before they can handle food again. He's not going to starve to death going without food for a day, in spite of what he may try to convince you. Be strong, give him plenty of love and attention, and know that this is for his own good.

-Can He Stay In His Crate When Im At School
-How Will He Act After Surgery
- Will He Gain Weight Cause Doggy Diabetes Is Bad On His Moms Side
- Will He Quit Humping His Toys
-Should I Buy A Cone Thing So He Doesnt Like His Cut
Also Let Me Now The Basics
Good for you for getting your dog neutered. Most dogs don't even seem to notice they just got neutered. A few lick their surgery sites, which you don't want. If your dog licks it, just put some little boy underpants on him that fit him. Put them on backwards and pull his tail gently out through the fly opening. That should keep him off his surgery site. Take the panties off when you take him out to go potty, of course. The incision should seal and be well on its way to healing within a week.
Will he quit humping his toys? Maybe, because it looks like you're getting the surgery before he reaches puberty, which is smart.
Just teach him his obedience, and when you see him doing this behavior give him a cue to sit, or down, or come, or do a trick you taught him, then reward him for doing what you asked.
Does A Dog Have To Be A Certain Age To Be Neutered?
yes, you can have your dog neutered as early as 8 weeks, and this is often done in shelters to avoid unwanted pregnancy however this is not in the best interest of the dog, you also don't want to neuter the dog too late in life if you can avoid it (1 year old is generally considered late...then again, better late than never)
a good time to neuter your dog is between 6 and 8 months, closer to 6, because having them neutered too young can create behavioral problems such as remaining a 'puppy' for longer because of the trauma at a young age, and health problems as growing larger because the testosterone turns into a growing hormone and neutering them after they reach maturity opens the door for issues like testicular cancer, unwanted pregnancies, and a greater risk for sexual frustration resulting in humping or marking.
below is the portion of the text from a fact sheet about neutering:
"AT WHAT AGE CAN NEUTERING BE PERFORMED?
Neutering can be performed at any age over age 8 weeks. Dogs neutered before puberty (generally age 6 months) tend to grow a bit bigger than dogs neutered after puberty (testosterone is involved in the causing bones to stop growing so without testosterone the bones stop growing later). Neutering can also be performed in the geriatric patient should the prostate gland become enlarged and the best medical decision be to shrink it. In this event, preanesthetic bloodwork and other diagnostics relevant to anesthetizing an older patient would be recommended.
The traditional age for neutering is around 6 months of age and many veterinarians still recommend neutering at this age.
The benefits of neutering (both health and behavioral) can still be obtained regardless of the age at which neutering is performed"
and here is a link to that fact sheet about neutering, including the most commonly asked questions:
it is always good to educate your self before jumping into something like this, reading over the fact sheet will not only help you understand what your dog is going through (you are castrating the dog, they don't just tie up a few things, they completely cut out the testicals! this can be upsetting for an animal because after the procedure they wake up in a strange place and are in alot of pain...it is however for their own good), but reading the fact sheet will also tell you what behaviors to expect from your dog as well as how to handle them.
Veterinarian Vs Engineering?
I Am A Sophomore In High School And Trying To Decide On A Future Career: Veterinarian Vs. Biomedical Or Aerospace Engineer? If Possible, Please Answer If You Have Experience In The Field Or Know Someone Who Does. Info On: Days Off Per Year, Days Worked Weekly, Hours Worked Daily (Both At Work And Home), Amount Of Free Time, And Freetime For Following Personal Interests. How Will Starting My Own Veterinary Clinic Change The Work/Life Balance? Are These Engineering Jobs Stressful? Do These Veterknarian And/Or Engineering Offer A Work/Life Balance For Supporting And Spending Time With Family And Friends During Weekends, Holidays, Etc? And Any Similar Career Areas? Both Career Areas Interest Me Alot, But I Want A Job Where I Can Actually Have A Life With Loved Ones. Any Information Or Personal Stories Are Welcome. Thank You.
Being a veterinarian can be a wonderful career but it definitely has it's drawbacks. It's HIGHLY competitive to get into vet school. It's way harder than law school or medical school. And unlike engineering, it's four years of undergrad and then four years of vet school. It takes a LONG time and most vets I know are now graduating with student loan debt that is akin to a 30 year mortgage and yet they might make 70-80k/year unlike doctors, dentists and lawyers with similar years of education/training.
Being a veterinarian involves spending a whole lot of time with people. If you don't like people, don't be a vet (unless you want to be a large animal vet and then you can spend your time with cattle and pigs). You will spend the majority of your time in exam rooms or on the phone. Veterinary nurses (vet techs) do the majority of the hands-on stuff such as x-rays, drawing blood, splinting/bandaging, placing IV catheters, administering medications, etc. A veterinarian diagnoses, prescribes and does surgery/dentistry. In the typical small animal practice the vet is doing probably 75% exam rooms and 25% procedures. As I said, it's a LOT of people. And those people often don't have money or don't want to spend money. So you can't necessarily do the best thing for the pet because no one will pay for it.
Forget about starting your own practice unless you're independently wealthy.
First of all, you need to practice for at least five years to know what you're doing medically. You really need to be mentored by a more experienced doctor or doctors. Do you realize that veterinarians are lucky to have done maybe 2-3 surgeries, usually spay/neuter surgeries, when they graduate? Good luck removing a mast cell tumor with clean margins or removing a spleen. Medicine cases can be complicated and it's best to have multiple sets of eyes. Sorry, but new grads just have no idea what they are doing unless they are incredibly unique and exceptional (I've seen it once or twice in 22 years).
Secondly, starting a practice from scratch takes a TON of money. First, you have to buy or rent the real estate. Then you have to do improvements to turn it into a veterinary hospital which requires some special outfitting such as plumbing for indoor dog runs, plumbing and electric for commercial laundry, oxygen system to outfit all your treatment/surgery/dentistry stations plus your ICU unit, radiology room with lead walls, special ventilation system to control odor/humidity including a completely separate ventilation system for the isolation ward and special sound-proofing. OK....that's just the BUILDING.
Now lets talk equipment. Do you realize that just the LIGHTS for a surgery room are about $15k? And what about ultrasound machine, dental equipment, surgical laser, procedures tables, digital x-ray and also portable digital x-ray for dentistry, drugs, surgical instruments, autoclave, cages, oxygenated ICU/recovery unit, and I could go on forever with the list...
You'll also need employees. Those are the most expensive things ever. And you'll need good ones because without good ones your potential customers will be turned off. You're not answering the phone, right?
Honestly, forget about owning your own practice. It ain't going to happen unless you join a nice practice and after ten years can buy into it as a part owner and increase your ownership over your career.
And do you REALLY want to be a practice owner anyways? Do you want to spend your time hiring and training receptionists? Paying the bills? Taking inventory and purchasing supplies? Making sure you're OSHA and DEA compliant? No, how will you make any money if you're doing all that? Will you hire a vet so you can manage? Or will you hire a manager so you can be a vet? All this costs money.
I'm very glad I've been in the veterinary field for 22 years. But it's changed and it's much harder than it used to be with much less reward.
Customers now expect to have evening and weekend appointments. The practices that grow and thrive are the ones that have extended hours (guess who will be working those), modern technology and excellent customer service.
If you care about work/life balance, owning a veterinary practice is NOT for you. It's a great and very emotionally rewarding career - but it's also emotionally tough, difficult in terms of dealing with people and demanding in terms of schedule - all without the financial rewards of similar professions with equal educational requirements.
Now....all that being said....I come from two generations of Boeing engineers. Those guys can have a pretty great salary after just four years of university. The company pays for their graduate degree. They move up and get promoted...they make six figures WAY before a veterinarian ever would (many veterinarians NEVER make six figures). They get a great benefits package, have lots of career options, and just do "better" in terms of financial reward. That being said, I think both my father and brother, as career Boeing men, aren't "in love" with their careers like veterinarians are. Their jobs have lots of red tape, corporate baloney and general unpleasantness. And yes, even they too have to kow-tow when the company calls. I remember not seeing my dad for WEEKS when he was working a zillion hours. My brother was sent to freaking Japan for three months when his first child was born - he missed out on so much!
No career is easy. They all have their drawbacks.
If I were you, I'd pick veterinarian any day of the week and twice on Sunday. But don't expect to start your own practice and get used to the idea of working a non-traditional schedule.
*******Veterinarian Vs Vet Technicians********** Plz Read :D?
Ok So I Wanna Become A Veterinarian But Vet Tech Sounds Good 2 So I Wanna Kno Wats The Difference In Work And In Schooling. And Also If I Decide 2 Go Toward A Veterinarian Do They Have 2 Preform Surgery? Plz Give Me A Really Good Description N Helpz Me Out Plz N Thx :D
Veterinarians are "doctors of veterinary medicine" and spend a minimum of 8 years in school: 4 earning a bachelors degree and then 4 years in vet school. Veterinarians all must perform surgery at least in college and generally they all perform surgery out in real world practice. Surgery is after all a major part of the practice of veterinary medicine as many medical conditions are treated by surgery. Veterinarians are the only people who may legally diagnose or prescribe treatment for medical conditions in animals or perform surgery on animals.
Veterinary technicians are trained to fill the position of many individuals in the human medical field. They provide nursing care, perform biological sample collection, run diagnostic testing, maintain medical records, assist in surgery, administer and monitor anesthesia, educate clients about preventative care and medical conditions, maintain surgical equipment, take x-rays, perform ultrasonography, etc etc. They must, in most states, complete a 2-3 year AVMA accredited degree program in veterinary technology and then pass a credentialing exam (typically the Veterinary Technician National Exam).
Both types of college degree programs are demanding and typically are limited to the top candidates as these types of programs can only handle a limited number of students.
