Question About Dog Veterinarian Question?
My Old 13 Year Old Chihuahua Was Fine One Day And The Next Morning His Face Was Really Swollen Making His Eye Appear Squining, Took Him To The Vet He Is On Antibiotics And Prednisone But It Is Not Getting Smaller Yet, Has Only Been Two Days. They Think He Has An Abseessed Tooth I Am Afraid For Him To Be Put Under Anesthesia At His Age To Have The Tooth Pulled. Is There Any Natural Or Things I Can Do To Help His Absess Heal And Not Come Back As I Do Not Want Hm To Go Under Anesthesia To Old For That. Please Answer If You Know Of Something Else For Me To Try. Thank You. Was Wondering If A Light Solution Of Warm Water And Asalt Poured Softly In His Back Jaw Area May Help It To Heal Or Not?
If it's an abscessed tooth, the dog has to be put under and the tooth pulled. If it's not, the infection will continue to grow.
It's always unnerving to put an older dog under but if you don't you will lose it...
I have a dog that will turn 18 at the end of July (I've had him sense he was a tiny pup). Today he had to put under for a mass in his ear. It was infected and would only get worse if he didn't have the surgery. He's very sleepy, not hungry and not comfortable tonight but doesn't have any real side effects. Two years ok, he had surgery then for an infected tooth and was fine the next day.
Here's a story about a human I use to work with: he had an infected tooth. he was afraid of the dentist. the infection grew and like any infection he developed a fever and still wouldn't go to the dentist/doctor. Eventually the infection grew so big, he began hallucinating. Obviously, he isn't the smartest turnip in the patch. He continued to drive... he was hallucinating and had a high fever, he got in a car accident because he shouldn't have been driving and he dead from the car accident.
- true story.
What Is The Daily Routine Of A Veterinarian?
Any Information About Veterinarians
The first vet I worked for did large and small animals. He tried to get all the surgeries and small animal appointments done in the morning and then made farm calls in the afternoon. The second (a terrible greedy abusive person who doesn't deserve to call herself a vet) got surgeries and appointments done as quickly as possible and took off to play the rest of the day.
The first vet had an assistant open the office at 8 am. At this time, the pets scheduled for surgeries were brought in. The vet would show up about 9 am to start surgery. Regular appointments were scheduled based on when the surgeries should be over. The vet handled his small animal appointments which were generally done by 1-2 in the afternoon. The vet would have a little lunch at this point. If there were any farm calls to be made, those were scheduled for the end of the vet's day to limit the amount of time wasted driving all over. The office closed at 5, but if the vet was on farm calls, he would work later.
Outside Dog Getting Neutered?
My Chihuahua Rocky(≪--- In Icon) Lives Outside* And Is Getting Neutered Next Week. He Should Be Kept Inside Right? My Mother Doesn'T Like Him Inside At All But I'M Worried That His Stitches Will Get Infected And He'Ll Get Sick. : (
If You Could List All The Reasons Why It Is Better To Keep Him Inside Until He Is Healed Enough And How Long In Your Answer So I Could Show It To Her, I'D Really Appreciate It. : )
*Don'T Freak Out On Me! I Know It'S Summer But We Have A Huge Canopy Thing That Provides Lots Of Shade And Two Fans Outside For Him! He'S Also Provided With Lot'S Of Ice Water! ^_^ (I'D Still Like Him Inside All The Time But Mother Says No. =_=)
Don't worry. Our dogs are outside dogs too and we have had them neutered. In fact we just had our Golden Retriever mix puppy (almost a year old now) neutered and he stayed outside with the other dogs. He didn't have any problems and is doing great.
I will say, however, from everything I've read and heard, that it is BEST if you can keep them inside. But there are situations that make it not possible. Just keep a close eye on him. If at all possible, maybe for the first day at least keep him in the garage on a nice blanket with water near by. He should be pampered a little because this surgery is not fun and he won't be feeling too good when you bring him home.
Will Getting My Dog Neutered Effect His Appetite?
I Have A Male Pit Bull That Is A Little Over A Year Old That Is Not Yet Neutered. Lately I Have Been Noticing That He Is Not Gaining Weight. We Have Taken Him To The Vet 3 Times And The Most Recent Time The Vet Told Us That The Reason He Continues To Not Gain Any Weight Is Because He Has Not Been Neutered. We Have Checked Him For Worms And He Is Perfectly Healthy. We Don'T Want Him To Bulk Up Too Much Just Look Healthy. His Ribs And Spine Are Showing. We Feed Him Three Times A Day Both Wet And Dry Food And He Eats It All Without Any Problems. I Was Wondering If Anyone Had Anymore Information About Neutering And Eating Habits. I Trust The Vet But Feel Some Reluctance About This Being The Way To Go.
Neutered dogs sometimes require less food for the same amount of activity level versus the amount of food they had to eat when still intact. Neutering a dog causes hormonal and metabolic changes, which changes how the animal uses up energy. Generally a neutered animal requires 10-30% less calories than it did when intact.
If you neuter your dog, but continue feeding the same amount of food it may gain some extra weight, but it also may not. There is no guarantee in this case.
Have you looked into feeding high performance dog foods? These are foods aimed at dogs that require a high calorie intake like hunting dogs so that they don't waste away from all the daily activity.
What Is A Veterinary Science Degree?
What Do You Do With It?
Also, What'S An Animal Science Degree & What Do You Do With That?
Thanks So Much For Any Help & Answers!
Its sort of behind the scenes veterinary stuff. you are not a qualified vet when you graduate, but you can do blood tests, urine tests, post mortems, more diagnostic stuff rather than the actual surgeries and treatments.
Animal science is probably similar but more to do with nutrition and physiology.
Right now i am studying Animal Biology which is based on the bilogy at all levels, from microscopic, cellular level biology, right up to physiology and behaviour.
Choosing A Good University To Study Veterinary Science?
I'M A Sophomore In High School And I Regularly Maintain A Gpa Above A 3.8. I'Ve Always Been In Gifted/Honors Classes And Am Very Determined. I'M Really Great At Math And Science Of Course, So I Know I Will Do Well In This Field, And I Have Also Wanted To Become A Vet Since I Was In Kindergarten. (I'M Hoping To Become An Exotic Animal Vet, But That'S Not What This Is About.)
I Was Wondering What Some Good Schools Were To Consider For Pursuing A Career As A Veterinarian?
I Don'T Mind What State (Or Country) It Is In, As Long As It'S A Really Good School! This Is Based Generally On Opinion, But I'M Looking To See If Any Schools Are Mentioned Repeatedly To See Which Choices Are Most Likely The Best For Me.
Thanks, Parisa :)
I'm in the Southeast, and I know Mississippi State University has a good vet school. I know people who have gone there and I've visited. I think University of Alabama Birmingham has a good one too. The one I hear repeatedly is Purdue University in Indiana. University of California Davis has a program in animal behavior (one of the only ones in the country), so I assume they have a good vet school. They also have a book on veterinary care by their vet school. University of Indiana at Bloomington has some animal behavior programs so they probably have some vet things too (sorry, I want to be an animal behaviorist so I keep thinking of that, lol). Oh, and I almost forgot Texas A&M. I know Colorado State University has a good animal science program.
