Both humans and animals alike rarely like a trip to the vets, which is why these veterinary surgeries have decided to have a little fun with their signs. Although we’re still not convinced, there’s no doubt about the fact that they’re funny.
Let’s be honest; if we didn’t have to sit in the dentist’s chair or take a visit to the doctor’s surgery, we definitely wouldn’t go. While these services are invaluable when we have a toothache or a weird rash on our skin, they’re not exactly the most enjoyable experiences in the world. We can only assume that the same can be said for animals and a trip to the vets – because we can’t imagine they love seeing a thermometer getting closer and closer to them on a regular basis. In fact, if you have pets of your own, you’ll know first-hand that animals don’t let getting up close and personal with their veterinarian.
It’s also hard for owners to take their animals to the vets, as these visits are normally filled with worry and a whole range of emotions that most people just can’t deal with. So, we’ve gotta give these vets a high five for trying to make the whole experience a little less awful. With signs like this outside of the door, how can you not crack a smile?
That’s a good point
Humans try to avoid going to the dentist or the doctor’s surgery at all costs, but most of us know that we eventually have to suck it up and make the trip to avoid us getting even sicker.
The same can be said for animals and the vets – which is why this animal hospital is here to remind you to book that appointment.
After all, they have a good point. While we don’t think veterinary surgeries were around during the Jurassic period, we don’t know whether they could have survived if there was a vet on hand to help them out. Vets can totally cure meteorite wounds, right?
The cone of shame
There’s nothing worse than taking your pet to the vet and realizing that they have to wear a cone around their head. Often called the “Cone of Shame,” this plastic cone isn’t quite the quirky necklace most owners hope for.
Instead, it’s an irritating addition that turns your pets loopy, make them even more aggravated than they already are, and knocks all of your fragile ornaments on the floor.
Sure, having a fun is pet and all, but having a pet that has to wear the cone of shame is something that most pet owners don’t even want to imagine. In fact, we have shivers down our spine just thinking about it…
Laughing about it
Although most veterinary surgeries spend their days making animals feel better, we can imagine that this job can also get pretty emotional sometimes.
After all, it must be tough to surround yourself with beloved pets that are going through a hard time, and it must be even harder when you realize that there’s nothing you can do to help them out.
Because of this, we bet these ladies and gentlemen need to cheer themselves up on a regular basis – and what better way to do that? These signs normally reside outside every animal hospital and gives them the chance to have a bit of fun with their day. So, show us your kitties!
True story, bro
There’s nothing we love more than an animal pun, and it seems as though this animal hospital decided to use a good ol’ pun to their advantage when trying to get customers through the door.
It’s not every day that you find a place that’s open 7 days a week, which means that they already have a pretty good chance of raking in the customers.
Of course, the fact that they decided to create a pun that focuses on both animals and curse words is even more of a reason for people to go here. It’s a true story, bro. It’s time to call for availability.
Totally freaked out
Heading to the vets can be a traumatic experience for both owner and pet, which is why most animal hospitals try to make the trip as calming as possible.
One of the best ways to get people smiling and to get the worries off their mind is to give them a good ol’ laugh – and it’s fair to say that we had a little chuckle to ourselves with this one.
After all, you can’t go wrong with a cat pun! Of course, there are some people who get a little freaked meowt when it comes to cat puns, and they’re really not kitten when they say that. Nobody is purrfect.
A top tip
If you have a cat, there’s a high chance that you have come to know a lot about them over the years.
You may know where they love to sleep during the day, you may know where they wander off to when they leave the house, and you may even know what they love to eat more than anything.
However, that doesn’t mean that cat owners know everything they can about these majestic – yet slightly frightening – animals. Because of this, the Frontier Veterinary Hospital decided to provide its passers-by with a top tip that could potentially save themselves a whole lot of mess. It might also save them buying a whole new carpet.
The vet will see you now
Let’s be honest; vets don’t have the most glamorous lives in the world.
While it’s fair to say that they are pretty well paid for their exploits, they spend most of their days getting up close and personal with the insides of animals.
We can’t imagine that this kind of pillow talk works its magic, so it seems as though this veterinary hospital wanted to give their customers the impression that the vets here had a bit more appeal to them in terms of their sauciness and their seductiveness. Of course, if one of them is called Mr. Grey, it would work perfectly because everyone knows that this man loves having fifty shades of things. Perhaps spaying may be a bit too far, though…
While most veterinary surgeries probably think that they are creating these hilarious signs for the humans of the world, that doesn’t mean that animals don’t see these puns and these jokes with their own eyes.
We’re pretty sure that dogs can’t read, but if they did, we can imagine that this little fluff ball wouldn’t be too impressed by what he’s reading.
After all, we can’t imagine that this mutt wants his what-sits taken from him, but what makes this even worse is the fact that this mutt doesn’t even know what’s coming. He’s just peering out of the window and watching the world go by without realizing that he’s staring directly at his fate. Poor dude.
Call the purramedic
Although veterinary clinics don’t really have to advertise their services, there’s no doubt about the fact that a joke goes a long way.
Most pet owners will know that you can’t take any risks when it comes to your animals, and even the slightest bit of sickness could spell something much worse.
So, they head to the veterinary clinic anyway with their pet in their arms and heaviness in their heart. Despite the sadness and the worry that goes with these kinds of trips, signs like this one probably make them feel a teensy bit better. That’s because these are pretty serious rules to live by, especially if your pet isn’t feline well.
The ultimate betrayal
Dogs are pretty awesome, right? They love their owners unconditionally. They want their owners to be as happy as possible.
They even want to be by their owners’ side at all times – even in the bathroom! However, it’s safe to say that cats are a little different.
Even if you spoil them so they’re the most pampered cat in the state, you can bet your bottom dollar that your cat will saunter off for a week and not return because they just don’t really care. In fact, this veterinary hospital has got it straight on. No matter how many times you could metaphorically text your cat, they would completely ghost you.
The magic dog
It’s fair to say that we wish we lived in a world where animals could talk to us. It would be so cool, right?
Just imagine a world where you don’t have to watch your dog completely ignore your commands, and a world where you can actually have a two-way conversation with your cat.
This would be a magical world, and we can only hope that this type of world is just a few years away. For the time being, we’re just gonna have to deal with this magical animal pun instead. Of course, the idea of a magical dog does fill us with joy, so it will definitely tide us over until the labracadabrador can play a game of chess with us.
Keep an eye on them
If you’ve ever taken a child to the vets with you, you’ll know that they go pretty wild. After all, it’s not every day you get to surround yourself with all kinds of animals, like dogs, cats, rabbits, and birds.
Because of this, it’s important to keep an eye on your pets when you head to the vets.
This veterinary hospital wanted to remind parents to do this because unattended children will become the burden of their lives otherwise. Have you ever seen a child completely zapped on coffee while also in the presence of a puppy? If you answered “no” to that question, you kinda want to keep it that way.
Top of the pups
In our dreams, we imagine an alternate universe where life is played out exactly how it is on our planet.
The only difference is that humans are replaced by animals that can walk and talk – and it’s pretty awesome.
It seems as though the Highland Road Animal Hospital also has the same kind of dream because they’ve even given us a sneak peek of what you can expect from this alternate universe. This one features a superstar singer by the name of Kitty Purry, who kissed a pug and totally liked it. This song caused a stir when it first came out, but now it’s top of the pups.
Suited and booted
It’s not every day you come across an alligator, but it seems as though there are some veterinary experts around the world that deal with all kinds of weird and wonderful animals on a regular basis.
While we don’t think that the people at this hospital did actually come across an alligator in a suit, there’s no doubt about the fact that it’s a pretty funny joke.
Why wouldn’t you want to take a trip to an animal hospital that makes these kinds of jokes? If you don’t find this funny, then we might have to get the investigator out of the water to see whether your funny bone is broken.
Now watch me spay spay
If you raised your hands in the air and raised them like you just don’t care, then have a high five. Alternatively, if you looked at this sign and actually completed the right dance, then you get the biggest hug you could ever imagine.
That’s because we have a feeling that you would have made the people who work in this animal health clinic pretty happy.
Of course, if you don’t get this reference, then you don’t need to worry about it. All you need to know is that this is actually one of the best jokes we’ve heard over the course of our animal-loving life. Although it’s not quite as funny for the animals…
A gentle reminder
Although there are many veterinary clinics and hospitals around the world that don’t offer these signs in front of their buildings, there are others who use these signs to serve as a gentle reminder.
While most people put their pets at the top of their priority list, many people forget to book appointments for the vets, and some of them even forget to get their pets spayed and neutered.
This sign is there to remind you to call the hospital, but it’s also there to remind you that you have some weird friends and family in your life. So, if you want to get them booked in too, they wouldn’t be against it.
Having a lazy day
Everyone loves a lazy day, right? There’s nothing better than settling down on the couch with a bag of popcorn in one hand and a remote control in the other.
Those who do this on a regular basis often get called a couch potato, but it’s safe to say that this name is a little different when kangaroos are involved.
After all, the Highland Road Animal Rescue know that you often need to work with what you’ve got in front of you when it comes to a joke, and the kangaroo’s pouch is right in front of them. A pouch potato is one of the cutest names we’ve ever heard, but it also makes us weirdly hungry.
A real hump day
Most people know hump day as the mid-week slump that you need to get over. Wednesday is the kind of day that makes you feel tired and lethargic, but it’s also the kind of day that gets you even more excited for the weekend.
Of course, hump day means something a little different in the veterinary world, because that’s the kind of day that most owners don’t look forward to.
It’s uncomfortable, it’s a bit strange, and sometimes it can even get pretty messy. To help owners get over hump day and move on with their week, this animal hospital decided to remind their customers to get their animals spayed and neutered. It makes a real difference.
The simple things
Sometimes the best jokes are the simplest ones, and we hope that you’ll join us in giving this animal hospital a round of applause. After all, it’s so simple yet so creative at the same time.
Whippets aren’t the most popular dogs to ever roam this earth, but that’s exactly why they should be given that extra bit of attention.
We always read about or see labradors and poodles around our town, so why not give whippets the chance to shine? Sometimes you just have to whippet. Sometimes you even have to whippet real good. Even when something’s going wrong, you just have to whippet.
Howl bout dat
Most of the time, there’s absolutely no rhyme or reason to popular culture. Sometimes the strangest videos go viral, and sometimes the most random people become famous.
The same can be said for the young lady who was filmed saying “Catch me outside, how bout dat?”
Of course, getting on board the popular culture train can get you some serious attention, and it seems as though that’s exactly what the Rock Island Animal Hospital wanted to do. It’s pretty genius, to be honest. Although we do have to wonder whether a cat and anything that’s howling should be put in the same place outside. That’s just asking for a loud racket.
They’ll love us
Because there are so many pets around the world, there are also so many veterinary clinics and animal hospitals.
This can often make it difficult for certain clinics to rise above the rest, and they often have to think outside of the box and come up with a new and exciting method of promotion.
Well, we think Paws & Claws have definitely nailed it. It’s always a good idea to pull on the heartstrings of the owners when it comes to animals and pets because it’s fair to say that animals can’t pay for their own treatment. Of course, adding a curse word and a dog pun into the mix is only going to help their plight. We’re sold.
Celebrating the holidays
Most people think that veterinarians do their jobs and then go home to do the whole thing again and again as the days go by. However, that’s just not the case.
You might be happy to know that most animal hospitals also celebrate the holidays just like the rest of us – and that’s especially true when it comes to Halloween.
There’s nothing better than seeing a pug dressed up as a pumpkin, and there’s nothing cooler than seeing trick or treaters with a cat on their shoulder. Halloween is the time for animals to show the world what they’re made of, so this place just had to celebrate their happy howl o weenie.
Well, we’ve certainly never seen a vet sign like this one before. If you’ve ever seen a sign like this in the flesh, you’ll know that it’s normally associated with buildings that house a few poles, some bright lights, skimpy clothing, and a lot of 1-dollar bills.
Of course, animal clinics are very different from these adult establishments, but there’s no doubt about the fact that there are a few similarities.
Unless their owners dress their dogs up in quirky outfits, dogs are live, and they are definitely sans-clothing. As if that wasn’t enough, many animals do just jump up into your lap without wanting anything in return but your company. Is that the same thing?
Let freedom reign
There’s something about a sign on the side of the road that grabs our attention, and there’s no doubt about the fact that this one does exactly that.
The Eastside Animal Clinic has got the clincher with this sign, and it’s safe to say that their words have also struck a chord with us.
After all, most pet owners will agree that they want their animals to be free and happy, and this often includes a lot of barking and meowing. Of course, this barking and meowing could be because they want a treat or want some belly scratches, but it could also be because the animals feel as though they are benefitting from freedom. What a world we live in.
A little less nuts
One of the main reasons why pet owners make their way to the vets is to get their dogs neutered.
While it’s enough to make anyone suck in their breath and crinkle their noses, neutering is a common practice that takes place every single day – to the dog’s dismay.
Despite the fact that it’s a rather difficult situation to be in for any dog owner, it seems as though this animal hospital has got the perfect words of advice for their owners. Their advice? If you neuter your dog, they can guarantee you that they’ll be less nuts. While we know this is literal, we also have a feeling it might also be pretty metaphorical.
To the window, to the wall
Hands up if you sang those words? We truly hope you did.
We have a feeling that Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz didn’t have any idea that their famous song would become so popular when they released it, but they’re probably enjoying the payout.
The tune is pretty catchy, and the words are pretty scandalous, and it’s fair to say that they are just opening themselves up to being remixed. So, that’s exactly what the Del Rio Veterinary Diagnostic Hospital decided to do. Although this particular service is not one that any dog wants to go through, at least they can do so with their owner singing beside them.
In the human world, defecting against a lamp post is considered pretty strange. In fact, you might even get arrested for it.
Despite this, dogs and other animals are encouraged to do such a thing, and we’re incredibly happy to see that the world supports them. The support doesn’t stop there, though.
In order to make sure that their animals are able to make the most out of colorful fire hydrants and beautiful lamp posts, they have reminded them to forget all of their worries and pee happy. It’s a tough order to fill, but we have a feeling that, with those wise words beside them, they’ll be able to do just that.
The ultimate cat wizard
Can you imagine a world where cats and humans live harmoniously in the wizarding world? That’s what dreams are made of, and it’s a dream that we really hope comes true one day.
It would be pretty cool to be able to wander around Diagon Alley with life-size cats that are casting spells in the process…
And it would be even cooler to communicate with them and read the Daily Prophet together. Of course, no cat wizard would be complete without a name. Thankfully, the Frontier Veterinary Hospital has come up with the perfect suggestion. It’s Hairy Pawter, of course!
There’s nothing better than having a lie-in and snoozing your alarm button, is there? We don’t think so. Our bed is a sneaky little thing because it seems to become even more comfortable when we have to get up and when we have to start our day.
The mattress seems to sink us in, the pillows seem to become clouds, and the comforter seems to snuggle us like no comforter has before.
Because of this, many people decide to snooze their alarm and have a few more minutes in bed – and it’s even better when you have a pet to cuddle at the same time. Of course, if you do this, it’s important to remember that it’s not called the snooze button. It’s the paws button.
Those are the rules
If you’ve ever heard of the five-second rule, you’ll know that this rule essentially saves your food from being thrown in the trash.
After all, it’s pretty easy to accidentally drop something you’re eating and see it fall to the floor, and it’s even easier just to pick it up before the five seconds are up so you can make the most of it.
However, if you have a dog, you’ll know that these rules just don’t apply. Dogs seem to be able to smell food from a mile away, and their adorable little noses will be on that food within a couple of seconds. The only option you have is to wear a scooped bib so you can catch any stray morsels…
All about biology
Veterinarians head to school for years to make sure that they are qualified to diagnose and treat your pets, and there’s no doubt about the fact that they know a thing or two about animal biology.
Because of this, we have to take this sign’s word for it. While we didn’t know about this extra little canal within the cat’s ears, it’s safe to say that so many things now make sense.
If you have a cat yourself, you’ll know that these animals just love to ignore everything you say. Although we always thought it was because they were kinda in love with themselves, it seems as though there may now be a biological reason. Maybe.
An itch ain’t one
These are the kinds of signs that you want to see outside the animal hospital because that’s exactly what pet owners want to be hearing – especially if their animal has an itch.
This kind of ailment is pretty common with animals, but most owners want to make sure that it’s cleared up as quickly and as quietly as possible.
So, it’s always a good thing when a veterinary clinic boasts about the fact that they have 99 problems, but an itch ain’t one. After all, most of us have problems. It may be that this vets’ dishwasher stopped working, it may be that they spilled coffee down their shirt, or it may be that their car didn’t start. At least it’s not an itch.
Heading to the store
There’s nothing better than seeing a pun on your way to work, and we have to give the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic some credit for their epic joke.
We didn’t know where dogs went when they lost their tails, so it’s nice to know that the clinic is on hand to give us some important information.
Thankfully, dogs don’t have to lose their tails too often, so they probably don’t need to shell out their hard-earned cash on a new tail. We do have to wonder how these retail stores stay in business, though. If dogs are rarely heading to the store to buy a new tail, how are they paying their bills? It’s a tough world out there.
The only option
Let’s be honest; holiday stress is a real thing. As the holidays get closer and closer, it’s hard to keep a calm head and not overthink about the food that you’ve bought or how you’re going to get 20 people around your dining room table.
Thankfully, this veterinary clinic has some sound advice on how to deal with the holiday stress.
All you need to do is think like a dog and deal with the situation how these adorable animals deal with most things in their lives. Simply eat or play with it, and then empty your bladder before walking away and pretending it didn’t happen. Simple, right?
They haven’t forgotten
If you have a cat, you’ll know that they’re pretty entitled animals. Your house is their house. Your food is their food. Even your couch is their couch.
When you get a cat, you have to be prepared to give up all of your worldly belongings, because they actually belong to your cat.
This veterinary clinic has weighed in on this strange behavior and noted that this has something to do with the fact that cats were once worshipped. It seems as though they haven’t forgotten how they were treated back in ancient times, and expect the same respect now. We hope you’ve got your palm fans at the ready.
