Woman Brings Her Sick Pet Duck To The Vet For A Checkup

If there’s one fact of life every pet owner has to live with; it’s that going to the vet isn’t cheap. Vet visits can really put the hurt on your bank account, but as responsible pet owners, we understand that the cost is a small price to pay to ensure our beloved companion’s well being. But, that doesn’t mean our heart rate isn’t going up a bit when the vet hits us with the final bill! I mean, really? Would it hurt them to send out some value-coupons every once in a blue moon? The woman in this joke learned some troubling news when she brought her pet duck in for a checkup.

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s chest.

After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, “I’m sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away.”

The distressed woman wailed, “Are you sure?”

“Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead,” replied the vet..

“How can you be so sure?” she protested. “I mean you haven’t done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something.”

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, “I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck.”

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..

The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. “$550.00!” she cried, “$550.00 just to tell me my duck is dead!”

The vet shrugged, “I’m sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $5.00, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it’s now $550.00
