Boy, if this doesn’t hit the nail on the head, I don’t know what does!
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 three weeks for an appointment, then waits eight weeks to see a specialist, then gets an X-ray, which isn’t reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for six 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!
