    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

    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 3 weeks for an appointment,
    then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't
    reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 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

    Maybe it shows how quickly vets want to get the job done and move onto the next. That's what you get with private payment per job.

    The Veterinary treatment was the same as going private (BUPA) so really there is no comparison, sorry!!
