Veterinary Humor

This is funny but also too true in many cases.

Dear client,

Welcome to our practice. The following are some suggestions of how to make things most pleasant for our staff.

*As you have already figured out your scheduled appointment time is just a suggestion. Feel free to ignore it and do as you please.

*If you are not going to show up, please do not call. We like the suspense of trying to figure out what you are going to do. Sometimes we run bets on it. So as you can see, calling and informing us of your intentions would just take the fun out of our day.

* Verbal abuse is always appreciated. If possible, wait till the waiting room is full. Please be creative in your profanity, we all like to expand our vocabulary.

* Do not put your dog on a leash or your cat in a carrier. Just let them loose as soon as you walk in. The staff enjoys a little pandemonium.

*Bring as many small children as possible. Three or more is preferred. If you don't have that many borrow from your neighbors (look for the most poorly behaved). Make sure they all have juice and crayons because we love to clean. Also, we encourage them to jump on the furniture, play rough with the hospital cat, and go through the drawers.

*Do not bring any prior records as we request. Calling other clinics gives us time to catch up with old friends.

*We're just kidding when we suggest that you bring stool or urine. That's gross. We'll just get it off our waiting room floor after your dog relieves him/herself everywhere

*Please feel free to stay on your cell phone. Handless headsets are preferred because it really makes it challenging to figure out if you are talking to us or the person on the phone. Make sure to call back later and ask us questions about all the things we were trying to explain.

* When giving information about your pet be as vague as possible. The doctor is psychic and can communicate with your pet, so its really just a formality anyway.

* Be sure to insist we follow your breeder's recommendations. Especially about anesthesia and vaccines. Our schooling and training really doesn't teach us much, so we appreciate the guidance.

*Give medications as you see fit. We just put instruction labels on them because the label printer is cool. We understand that when the condition doesn't resolve it is our fault not yours.

*Don't tell us all the other vets had to muzzle your dog till after he/she tries to bite. Keeps our reflexes sharp. Besides, its more of a challenge to muzzle a dog once he/she is all worked up.

*If your cat is hissing and upset, please put your hands and face as close to his/her mouth as possible. He/she would never bite you. If a bite did occur from your own stupidity, it is our fault anyway.

*Ignore the 'employees only' signs. Just wander around as you please. Stick your hands in all the cages. If your child is wandering around, we prefer him/her to be barefoot.

* If your pet is sick please wait a minimum of three days before having him/her seen. Also, be sure to exhaust all treatments available over the counter or at the pet store before bringing him/her in to be examined. Oh, and ten minutes before close on a Saturday is the perfect time to call and tell us you're coming in.

* Always complain about the bill. We know our prices are too high. In general, we tend to be greedy and don't care about your animal.

*Feel free to agree verbally and in writing to all fees, especially to the expensive ones. Then, after the diagnostics/treatments are performed, and only then, inform us that you have no actual money, but that you can pay us $10 a week until it is paid off.

*Please be sure to let us know of all illnesses you THINK your pet may have because you looked it up online. Then be sure to dictate to us how your pet should be cared for.

We look forward to caring for your pet. If you have any suggestions about what we can do to make life easier for you and more difficult for us, please do not hesitate to let us know.

**In early summer we will generously vet all your injuries (physical & mental ones) when you bring us a young (preferably imprinted) wild bird you saved from its parents

LOL. I saw so much of all of that my two years teching. Sometimes we were able to laugh it all off, but we did get annoyed at times....

I am the one who sticks their hand in front of the angry cat's face. The difference is, she really WON'T bite me, but she'll sure as heck maul the vet or tech trying to handle her. Thankfully our normal vets know us and let me handle her 100%- I even hold her until she falls asleep if she needs to go under. The alternative is her murdering the staff. It's always hard explaining to a new vet that, no, I know how these things normally go, but trust me it is safer this way!

I do not try it with my other three cats though. They'd happily chomp me in times of stress!
