Joke - Two Different Doctors

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 her family doctor, after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 3 months to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week, and is still waiting 6 months later to have her surgery scheduled.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.

The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

So if I need a hip replacement, I am going to a vet!

But I'd only go to a vet if you're comfortable with one of the options for treatment being euthanasia!
