    Hello Vet assistant! Ask me stuff!

    Advertisements
    I just found this part of the forum, and I can't believe I haven't looked at it before. I'm a vet tech and I know quite alot about animals. Easy remedies to annoying things like fleas to behavioral issues. I don't promise to know the answer to every question, but I will try my best, or tell you where you should go to get the right answer

    Please ask me anything, I love helping people and their pets

    OKAY!

    What should I do about my dog's ear infections? Besides cleaning them out which I try to do once to twice a week. She still seems to get them.

    Ahh, good to know about the other vet techs. I'm still in school, but I've been a vet assistant working towards my degree for about 3 years.

    As for the ear infection I always suggest taking the ear dogs to the vet... ear infections are a pain in the butt to treat without meds. Do you know if it could be yeast in the ear?

    i think boxermom is the only degree'd & licensed tech out of all of us. i have a bs in animal science & was a vet assistant at a research lab. i don't do it anymore, but i'm still pretty knowledgable.

    Oh, ok good. I felt silly after I said that seeing as how I'm not licensed. I think I'm pretty knowledgeable too. After answering 100 calls a day with questions about ear infections and lumps in weird places I feel like a pet help hotline.

    I would like to know about Natural Remedies for flea control, dogs & cats. Also, what do you think about oral vs. topical flea meds?

    Do you have any natural flea control meds? You probably remember what happened with Lucky, and the advantix burning him, so I am looking for something new now, and less harsh. I give him the brewer's yeast with garlic, but I am not 100% satisfied with its effectiveness.
