Please Hire a Proofreader!!

Sent to VBB by a fan.

Other than "what a prime example of where the profession is going", there are no words for this.  What a shame and an embarrassment to this profession.

You have 5 minutes to come up with as many comments as possible.   Okay more than 5 minutes.  Rip it apart.  This doctor should be ashamed of sending this out to the public. 

**Names and phone numbers are blocked out to protect the innocent, although we at VBB think this doctor's name should be printed as well.  If you're gonna put this out there, prepare to defend it to your colleagues!

  1. I saw nothing naked, how is this a "pormotion"?

  2. What colors of polish do they offer? Can I get a good OPI color? Or just the cheap Kmart stuff?

  3. I want to know how they vaccinate 4 cats at once. Hey, is the free food for me or the dog? Aw, hell, hot dogs'll go either way. Hey, you know why their pries are so low? They didn't waste good money on a proofreader, and they spent their time in school learning the best high volume surgery techniques instead of paying attention to details like spelling.
    This may be proof we are dipping lower and lower into the applicant pool....
    OK, that was three minutes. I came up with more than Doc Sarcasm- what do I get?

    1. What's a popco voucher? I want popcorn, especially if it's cheesy popcorn. This practice is spaying pet cats cheaper than I'm neutering barn cats. I wish this was the only advertisement of this nature I've ever seen, but it's not.

  4. The more I read this, the more pissed off I get. I mean, really? Can't you at least have a little PRIDE in what you do? I am not even gonna try to go for 4 minutes in order to beat Eden because as it stands, my head is exploding and my disbelief is palpable!

  5. So if I'm adopted the exam is free, or if I bring an adopted friend with me? And I also want the food thing clarified.

  6. Could you please at least let us know the name we can do the rest of the work ourselves.... if I saw this come in my mailbox I'd be phoning to see if the vets who work there actually have a license or is this some back office operation!! What a horror show

  7. We have a clear leader in our profession's race to the bottom.

  8. Ded they ever hear of spel chckr?

    Also wondering if they know how to spell veterinarian? That's a bit more difficult than promotion.

  9. LOOK, I'M TRYING TO BRANCH INTO TREATING OTHER SPECIES, OKAY? SO I HIRED AN ALEXIC PATIENT AS A SPELL-CHECKER, OKAY? THEY NEEDED A JOB!

  10. They misspelled Bordetella but at least they didn't call it Bordello.

  11. Not to mention the lack of consistency in capitalization, color and font size. If I got that in the mail, I would NEVER go there. I'm thinking that "popco" is supposed to be Petco?

  12. The catch-all 10$ deworming is a problem too. No need for a fecal, we'll just assume that the medication we choose is appropriate for whatever your pet might have, regardless of what kind of parasite it actually is. They wouldn't call it Panacur if it didn't fix *everything*, right? RIGHT???

  13. So, at 76-90lb, the spay is cheaper than the neuter? Kill me.

  14. Wow! How did the nurses allow whoever this is to let this out in public! Surely they would have seen it?!

  15. I might guess that either English is NOT this veterinarian's first language or whoever wrote/printed the cards lives within a 50 mile radius of our hospital. Based on having lived in this area for the past 33 years and currently having 2 children attending public school (it's much cheaper than a babysitter), I doubt that more than half of the people receiving those cards would have even known there were mistakes.

  16. Pardon my possible racism, but it wouldn't surprise me if the free food was being served from a dim sum cart
