Land shark

The medical world is unpredictable. Patients (and doctors) sometimes get angry for no good reason.

Veterinarians deal with crazy humans, but also run the risk of being attacked by pets. Most 4-legged things bite.

But when you hear about staff at a vet's office being bitten, you DON'T expect another homo sapiens to be involved.

Until now.

Yes, folks, a lady in Florida brought her Shih-Tzus to the vet for grooming. And when they weren't ready as fast as she wanted them to be, she went canine on the staff, biting them repeatedly.

I'm not making this up. Here's the story.

It doesn't say if she's up-to-date on her shots, but I suspect she'll be quarantined for a while.

Thank you, Jackie, for sending this in.

And she will get off with next to nothing for punishment.

And they say that after a while owners begin to look like their pets - I had no idea they began to act like them too - YIKES

Maybe this is why I like my patients dead?

This world is becoming one freakin' scary place, isn't it?

Yikes! As a vet I thought I had enough to worry about with my patients wanting to bite me. Now I'm going to have to worry about their owners too...

Nobody is happy anymore, and why is that ? Is it because of Bush or is it because of Obama--I think it has to be one or the other for everyone seems to be saying it is one or the others fault.

The wrapping is coming off, it wasn't too tight to begin with.

What a nutcase!

This has been making the rounds on our veterinary forum. The general consensus is that the biter needs to be tested for Rabies. (Involves decapitation!)

And just wait till you see what she left on the floor of the vet's office.

I live in Florida (In the "nursing home" section of florida) and for some reason...this does not shock me...

Britt said...

Oh, I just read the article, the location is within the "nursing home" section of Florida, I knew it!

So, whack her on the nose with a newspaper and put her in a cage with a sign "Beware of Bitch."

Psycho! See if she can be taught to fetch slippers and beg for her supper. And rabies shots for the unfortunate victim!

KateA said...

I was going to mention testing for rabies too...
She can't really bite people with her head removed.
Read the article that Becky posted.

So, did they clip her claws while they had her restrained?

Henceforth she should be required to wear a muzzle at all times when in public. Oh yeah, and have her canines pulled.
