    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 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!
