Our pets are cute, playful, funny, loyal, loving, affectionate, and cheeky. Sometimes very cheeky! They certainly like to keep us on our toes. Even when it comes to going to the vets...
Strange trips to the vet
The story of Sullivan and his tactics for getting extra affection from dad went viral in 2017. It caught the attention of Twitter and Facebook users alike for the hilarity of his genius (you can call it that really!).
Inspired by the story, Yummypets has collected some of the funniest stories from people around the world who acted responsibly by taking their pet the vets in their time of need… or at least so their parents thought!
#1 This dog had been helping himself to more than he was allowed…
When we paid $700 for an x ray that just showed Jessie did not have bloat but in fact ate a whole bag of food. https://t.co/SKVnfDN1UL— ash (@ashlynhello) November 3, 2017
#2 He knows he's king
My dog did similar. He stopped walking, I rushed him to the vets. £36. Nothing wrong, he just didnt like the feel of something on his paw.— Chroma Stationery (@chromastatnry) November 4, 2017
#3 Let's all go to the pool!
This is my life, except my dog faked a paw injury when I left to a pool party. And became better $200 later right after we left the vet— katana (@XOKATANA) November 4, 2017
#4 Not the most helpful vet out there
Once took my cat to the vets because he was constipated and in pain. The vet took him in overnight. Paid ~$200. Was told cat was constipated— Andrew (@Bearsito) November 6, 2017
#5 Toilet time!
Out on walks, my three dogs fake peeing&pooping to see if I'll give them a treat!— MidnightsNature☮️☯ (@Animal_Daft) November 5, 2017
#6 Even horses are in on the secret...
Our neighbors had a horse that faked a pathetic limp when it saw my mom. Everyone knew it was fake except my softie of a mom.— Eryn (@Leighbra) November 3, 2017
#7 Cookies please!
My dog was fake limping for 3 months for extra cookies and attention. After 4 vet visits and squirrel chase we figured out she was faking— (@AutumnAuLait) November 4, 2017
#8 That is one excitable little dog
I AM SOBBING OMG I LOVE DOGS— veggie granny (@noelle_johansen) November 3, 2017
one time our pup got his nose stuck in the kennel door trying to get out and see us. $165 at the vet https://t.co/vGKYRKF6bX
#9 A few too many people identified with this one…
We once had our dog's paw xrayed because she limped a little. Turns out she's not sick, she's just lazy. Set us back 150€.— Mike Drop (@DasFaultier) November 4, 2017
