These 20 pawed buddies had to pay a visit to the vet, for the most tragicomic reasons ever! 

Enjoy the story we found on BuzzFeed!

1. “My dog sprained her tail wagging it too hard.”


2. “I had to take my rabbit to the out-of-hours vet because she wasn’t eating. Just as the vet called us into the room she started munching on the hay in her carrier.


It cost me £120 to tell the vet my rabbit was eating.”

3. “One night my six-month-old goldendoodle ate her own collar.”


4. "One day my mom called me and told me that her cat started screaming and it wouldn't stop. She thought the cat might be having a heart attack...


I rushed there to pick up my screaming mom and her screaming cat. We drove to an 24-hour vet where they put the cat on oxygen, barely avoiding speeding tickets.

It turned out that the cat was actually having a panic attack. The whole thing cots us $1800. Good thing we all loved that animal."

5. "Our dog was sitting and watching TV with us when he suddenly started making a strange crying sound.


We don't know how but he managed to get his own claw stuck in his eyelid. After $550 at the vet, he went back to his tail-wiggling, full-visioned self."

6. “My cat had a cone on after an operation. She stopped eating and using the litter box and she became lethargic.


One night, I took her in my bed to sleep together. When I woke up in the morning I saw that she hadn't moved at all and she was purring weakly. I was convinced that she was dying. I called my vet who turned out to be out of town but he came back just to check on my cat.

Everybody was freaking out. Later on, when the vet took out the plastic cone, my cat came back to life in an almost magical way and proceeded to scratch the vet's face. She ate two packs of wet food and drank a ton of water. The dying act was just a trick to get out of the cone.

7. “Our whippets jumped onto the kitchen table and ate half a kilo of fudge.


After that you could never leave a package/parcel lying around near them – they would rip it open, looking for fudge.”

8. I adopted a guinea pig named Oscar. My other guinea pig, Kenny, hurt his foot while jumping with the joy of having made a new friend.


9. "Zeena, my grandmother's dog ate a whole plastic spatula.

"Zeena, my grandmother's dog ate a whole plastic spatula.
"Zeena, my grandmother's dog ate a whole plastic spatula.

My grandma gave her the spatula so that Zeena could lick it clean, but the dog went over kill and swallowed the whole thing. After the $700 vet appointment, both the spatula and the dog came out just fine."

10. "My cat destroyed and ate a bag."


11. "I had a ferret named Sugar. One night I saw blood in its poop and freaked out. We drove 45 minutes to a 24-hour vet.


After $200, I found out that the redness in its poop wasn't blood but red fruits."

12. "My black lab was being lethargic and her stomach was abnormally firm. We rushed to the vet.


The X-ray revealed that she had three kilos of dry dog kibble in her stomach. I had left the lid of the dog food container open and she ate everything"

13. One night, my dog cried for a long time and I took him to a 24-vet.


It turned out that he was just emotional because my parents left.

14. “I was convinced that my dog had ticks on his chest so I drove him over 90 minutes away to the vet only to find out that the bumps were just his nipples.”

15. "One day at work I got a phone call from my husband saying he was rushing our dog Sissy to the vet...


because he found her in the fridge overdosing on leftover Chinese food. She jumped in the fridge without us noticing and just went for it! The vet had had to pump her stomach because 3–4 takeout boxes’ worth of food for a 7lb dog isn’t very safe. I don’t think she regretted it at all.”

16. "I had to take my cat, Geoffrey to the vet, but not because he was sick, but because his sister, Zadie, wouldn't go without him!"


17. "My cat was sweating a lot and not moving...


When the cat squeezed her belly she made a big fart. She had eaten cheese and couldn't handle the lactose.

18. "My dog Lamar once ate a one-month supply of birth control pills...

"My dog Lamar once ate a one-month supply of birth control pills...
"My dog Lamar once ate a one-month supply of birth control pills...

Thank God he was fine but he was a bit sassy for the next two weeks. I also have my ups and downs but not as bad as a dog who took a bunch of hormones."

19. “Our childhood gigantic Lab ate a flashlight.


He ate the entire thing, and it was flashing on and off while he swallowed as I was frantically trying to get it out of his mouth.”

20. My dog had been limping and crying for a couple of days. Turns out she was faking it so that she wouldn't have to go for a walk.
