In fact, she’s had two full meals, her blood pressure is fine, she’s going to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and if she continues this improvement, Dr. Cohen is going to send her home Tuesday.”
The woman said,
“Thank God! That’s wonderful! Oh! That’s fantastic! That’s wonderful news!”

“I’m sorry, I don’t feel a pulse, I’m afraid your dog is dead”.
The lady can’t accept this and says,
“No, no, he can’t be dead — do something else.”
The vet goes into the other room, and comes back with a little cat.
The cat jumps up on the table and starts sniffing the dog from head to toe.
It sniffs and sniffs up and down the dog, then all of a sudden just stops and jumps off the table and leaves.
“Well, that confirms it,” the vet says, “your dog is dead.”
The lady is very upset but finally settles down.
“Okay, I guess you’re right. How much do I owe you?”
The vet says, “That will be $340.”
