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 ).
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.
>>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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
hello /g/entooman here, i come for advice, i daopted this dog from the street, she had a lot of fleas all around its body mostly on her ears, we took all of them out, but these "things" are still there. what can i do about them? they dont hurt her. btw, her name is "shima" for Hiroshima. thanks for the help
>>1999562 im in mexico and i dont have a lot of money to take her to the vet yet, but a goverment "veterinarian" came yesterday, and he said that those were filled with infected liquid, but i know he is not right. do you have any idea about what are these things called and if she is afected about them?
>>1999381 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.
/an/ my outdoor cat recently started getting this scab on her chin. What is it and how do i treat it? I dont have any money for a vet,im jobless and literally have $10 to my name right now...latelly i think shes been wandering out further so i think shes coming into more contact with other cats.
>>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.
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.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1997678 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.
How do you teach your dog that certain things are forbidden properly?

>>1996905 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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
