When I was updating my benefits at work I noticed the pet insurance was 2/3 less than the regular insurance. Shoulda got the pet stuff.

Emposter: Anyone who thinks going to the vet is cheap has never been to a vet.


Anyone who thinks that going to the vet is not cheaper than going to the human doctor has never gone to the human doctor (and had to pay out of pocket).

Pick: $10 for the vet to pull a tooth, or $600 for an oral surgeon. You do the math.

Doctors: You need to have those toes amputated.
Idiot: No. I think I'll try my neighbor's dog's ointment.
Doctors: You still need to have those toes amputated.
Idiot: OMG. It must have been because of this vet's ointment.  It's his fault.
Vet: Whiskey.  Tango.  Foxtrot.

Must have a supple throat to handle those massive pills.


It doesn't go through the throat.

Trick question. Didn't tell us what time Train B left the station.

In TFA it is very unclear how the man got the medicine.

a) Police Sgt. Susan West said Thursday the man went to the vet with a foot ailment, and the vet gave him ointment. The problem got worse and he went to a hospital.

b) Freemyer told The Associated Press on Thursday he was treating a dog for skin cancer, and a woman who owned the dog took some of the medicine home and gave it to a neighbor without his knowledge.


I can't imagine a vet risking his license that way. I'll randomly guess that it was a steroid ointment which might be used for canine skin cancer but would be very contraindicated if the man had an infection. <I am not a vet>

For those who have a problem with a vet, you're doing it wrong. You either have a bad vet, one whose bedside manner doesn't click with you, or you have a poor attitude. For the first two reasons, find another vet. For the third, you might want to reconsider owning animals in the 21st century.

I have been incredibly lucky to have a wonderful GP vet. He helped me take care of my Beaglish Girl from the day after I brought her home at eight weeks until I had to release her from this life two months ago when she was just a few weeks shy of 17 years old. We were partners in making sure she was as good as she could get. She had many health issues over the course of her life, including cancer. From him and others we sometimes saw (specialists), she got far better, and far more caring, medical care than I ever did. Sure it wasn't always financially easy.  I had to go without to afford it, but she was worth more than fancy meals, nice clothes, vacations, movies, etc. I seriously didn't mind a bit since she was worth every single cent.

I felt it was my moral responsibility to do the absolute best for her that I could, and with my vet's help, that I did, for her entire life.

Damn I miss her immensely :'('''

I *heart* you.

Losing a dog like that is the hardest thing in the world.  I'm sorry.  There aren't enough pet owners like you in the world.

Thank you.

Oy!  Where's the picture?  Let's do this again:

Thinks that, sometimes, veterinarians are 'hand'-y for some stuff.

Police: There's no evidence to support these allegations, so we're going to cause you a bunch of legal problems and possibly cause you to lose your job.
Vet: Foxtrot.

Tune in next week for more exciting adventures! Here's a sample:

Pangea: There is no direct connection between the vet and the "victim," according to the news story.

The vet gave some woman ointment. The woman gave the ointment to her neighbor when he complained of something similar to what the lady's dog had.

This guy is going to lose his veterinary license because some farktard self-diagnosed.

I would be outraged if I actually gave more of a shiat about people I don't know.


Oh, and don't forget, they named the vet, but left the dumbass unnamed for 'medical privacy' reasons.

This. I could not follow the article at all.

Did he get the ointment from the vet or the woman who owned the dog? (Love how the dog was named as well, suziequzie, but the "victim" isn't...)

I'm aware some vets out there aren't above practicing old-school medicine, and there's a way to do it right, but there's also ways to do it insanely wrong and risk being outed by someone. Disciplinary boards exist for a reason.
