As a vet, you are likely to encounter a number of clients who want to breed their dogs. There are a variety of possible motivations behind breeding: financial gain, wanting a puppy similar to their own adult dog, the desire to provide an educational experience for their children, and many others.
In December 2017, a young dog was treated by its veterinarian for fever and respiratory signs that developed four days after sniffing a dead prairie dog. When the dog failed to respond to antibiotics and began coughing up blood, it was taken to the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital for additional diagnostics and treatment.

In your veterinary career, you will probably see many pets in need of dental care. Some clients will follow your recommendations, while others may forego complete dental care in favor of anesthesia-free dentistry.
Your job is to educate clients on the differences between these two options, in the hopes that they will make the best decisions for their pets.
