Vet Bill Too High
A lady went to see her Vet.
She brought her dog along.
She said,"Can you please check him out?
I fear there's something wrong."
He seems to be quite sick, "She said,
He will not eat or drink.
Please check him over carefully,
And tell me what you think.
The Vet got out his tethescope
And listened to it's heart.
He said, "I have some real bad news.
I'm not sure where to start.
Let me break it to you gently,
Your little dog is dead."
The lady said, "I don't agree,
He's just asleep instead."
The Vet said, "Madam I am quite sure,
Your dog is stone cold dead."
"Well can't you check him out some more?"
Was all the lady said.
The Vet said, "Fine if you insist,
I'll bring my Black Lab here,
And if you watch him carefully,
The truth will be quite clear."
The Black Lab came into the room.
He sniffed and walked away.
The Vet said, "Are you satisfied?"
He heard the lady say.
"How can you be so very sure?
You can not tell like that."
The Vet said, "OK, one more test."
He brought a pussy cat.
The cat just sniffed and walked away.
The Vet said, "Now you know,
I'm sorry it's not better news,
But now I have to go."
He then made out a bill for her,
Two hundred twenty five.
The said, "Why is it so high,
When my dog's not alive?"
The Vet said, "Normally my bill,
Would not be quite so high,
But the lab report and cat scan,
Explain the reason why."
