Hello /an/,
I'm in my first year of college and i'm studying to become a vet. For a school project I need to interview veterinarians. I had already speak with 6 vet, and 3 more in the next month.
But I also would like to interview vet from other part of the world.
Is there any veterinarian here that would give me an hour or so and answer some questions ?
I will also like to know how do you become a vet in your country ( i'm french ).

Is it true that if someone's taking a visit because they think somethings up, you HAVE to prescribe/inject, do something even if you see nothing wrong? Someone once told me this. If yes, why?

I tried locking her up but she mews. I might have to get rid of her. This behavior is not acceptable.

When you say "sticks her ass in their face" you mean like... standing on their lap turned away from them? Because all cats do that. Who fucking cares?

Hey /an/
I bought a purebred Shiba Inu, show quality. Currently 13 weeks old.
She's on a breeding contract, and so far besides teething, she's great. She loves learning, already know a lot of tricks, but is having a little trouble leash training. ( I need some advice for that please )

I want to be a reputable breeder, and recently found out that for some reason it seems you 'need' to put your dog in the show ring for it to be show quality.

Her parents are champs, and she's been bred for show quality, but I don't understand why she'd need to enter in shows?

It seems like a big old people circle jerk to me.

Do I have to take her to a show? I live in a rather small city that doesn't do shows (I'd have to drive quite far for them). So if they ARE necessary, would there be another option to take her to a private judge as a different option.
I know there are people who show dogs for you for a fee, but I still think they're redundant.

OR TLDR: Convince me why I should show my purebred dog in the ring, she's meant to produce amazing pups in her future, and be an amazing companion.

( on iPod, not sure how big pic will be )

that's literally what show quality is

why do you need your dog to be show quality? answer: you don't, fuck off.

I'm not going to become a byb

I'm going to follow the ethics and responsibilities that are being a reputable breeder.

I'm not breeding for the money, but for improving the breed.

I'm not going to raise puppies in a half assed diy dirty whelpinv box. But a clean and large whelping box with a dedicated room for when they are learning to walk.

I've learned all of the ethics, but it's never been clear to me if shows are necessary to show how amazing your dog is.

>>1999826
Also I should have worded that last part better and explained.

She's not going to become a breed mule. The original reason I wanted her on a breeding contract was because I hate spay/neutering pets. It'd be horrible if you lost your privates, right? And it also can damage how long they'll live, I just feel bad thinking about missing a few more possible years with a beloved animal.
I eventually started thinking that it'd be nice if she could experience having a family herself, since it...

If it is an aussie magpie like the one in the pic, it's probably attacking/warning you to keep you away from its kids/nest/territory.

If they are half as intelligent as "normal" magpies, they'll probably get nicer if you feed them.

It is an Aussie magpie I thought birds were smart enough to recognize people?What type of food should I give it?If it continues to despite trying to show I'm no threat I'll just walk the long way around that street.
I think its just the same one that normally swoops me never seen too many together in the street I walk.I have seen a smaller one one some wires near a tree though.

>>1999382
Not sure what to feed them. I've heard that white bread is a no-no. Some people claim that whole grain bread is good, however, and that's what I use when I feed birds.

Try starting out by simply dropping crumbs on the ground when you pass by, and see if their behaviour begins to change.

If you're broke then for ducks sake keep your cat indoors. You cannot afford the inevitable vet bills that come with an outdoor cat.

>>1999099
My cat actually got the exact same thing about a month ago. His shin fur is still thin, but the black spots went away and reb pimple things have gone away too.

That said, you should take your cat to the local animal shelter anc explain to them that you can't afford the vet bill. They have seen every problem under the sun there and will help you out if they can. That's what I do with my cats.

Looks like bad acne. Can become infected/abscessed. Keep your cat indoors, you dumb shit, or it might turn into worse.

So I've recently begun feeding the corvids that hang out by the pond at my university. There are mainly magpies there, plus a few crows. There are jackdaws in the area, too, but they stay away from thepond for some reason(possibly because of the magpies; I've observed antagonism between magpies and jackdaws in the past).

In any case, I've noticed that it's incredibly hard to feed the crows whenever there are magpies around. They might start going in for the food, but as soon as they notice that a magpie is on its way there, they beta out and retreat....

What makes you say that?

Magpies are incredibly aggressive birds, so I don't think they're particularly afraid of having it on with the crows. But I've never actually seen crows and magpies fight, maybe they have a truce.

>>1997690
Well, I haven't noticed any fighting between the crows and the magpies, with one exception: last year, a magpie couple began building a nest in a tree just outside my apartment building. However, before they were finished, a crow couple, who might have had a nest in a tree nearby appeared, and simply drove them off. There was no violence; the magpies were just chased away. Today, a few sticks still hang in the tree as a monument of their lost ambitions.

Anyway, it's still appears that the crow at my...

Magpies can get really territorial regardless of size. With crows they do seem to have an armistice of sorts going. I have seen magpies chasing around full grown peregrine falcons though. They don't care.

The kitten was at the neighbors. the dog too. So it is his fault. My fault. The wire fence is almost as tall as me, so in theory he shouldn't be able to get through, but there is one particular hole that constantly needs patching up.
Short of tethering him to a dog house, what can I do?

Alright /an/imals. I rescued a little black monster from my work parking lot yesterday after some asshole threw him out of their car window. He's been checked out and he isn't sick or injured.

I've decided to keep the little guy. My German Shepherd has basically adopted him and is protecting him like the fantastic guard dog he is. We had a cat previously and they were best buds and it looks like the same is going to happen again.


Before anyone gets up in arms, I am still keeping the two separated for the most part and I never leave the kitten...

My dog developed a dry rash on her chest on November 1st. It appeared to be dry patches, some were scabby. By November 3rd her chest broke out in small red spots, which quickly spread to her belly and groin. She has had minor rashes before, but never like this. My neighbor lent me some itch spray. When that didn't work, we bought a medicated shampoo. Note that at this time, she was not itchy, but the redness and irritation was concerning.

We washed her with the shampoo Nov. 6th and Nov. 8th. The spots went down, and most of the dry patches have disappeared. On the...
