Stop and think about this one. LOL

Next Time

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is X-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an X-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.

The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

Next time take me to a vet!

Sadly, I think this is true, we had the best vets for our pets that we often said, if I get "really sick" take me to our vet. Sigh !

Good thinking - perhaps more people should try just that!

Boy that is the truth. I suppose there is a cure for this but I don't know what it is.
