Funny stories from the veterinary practice.

A submission from our #TheStruggleisReal page

“I told an owner he should consider a joint supplement for his dog's stiff hips. He got real quiet like he didn't understand what I was saying, so I chimed in with ‘glucosamine’ and “chondroitin.’ He started to stammer and admitted to thinking I was suggesting medical marijuana.

‘Joint’ supplement.

It took me about 5 minutes to get my laughter under control to explain my recommendation further!”
