Trust the Vet !

A distraught man runs into the vet's office carrying his dog in his arms shouting for help.
Seeing this the vet immediately rushes him back to an examination room and has him put his dog down on the examination table.
The vet examines the still, limp body and after a few moments tells the man that his sadly his beloved pet has passed away.
The man is understandably extremely emotional and is not willing to accept this and demands a second opinion.
The vet goes into the back room and comes out with a cat and puts the cat down beside the dog.
The cat sniffs the dog and walks from head to tail poking and sniffing the dog.
Finally the cat looks at the vet, shakes it's head slowly and meows.
The vet looks at the man and says,
"I'm sorry, but the cat thinks that your dog is dead too."
The man is extremely upset and is still not prepared to accept that his beloved pet is gone.
Shaking his head the vet next brings in a black labrador from the other room.
The labrador labrador sniffs the body, walks from head to tail, and finally looks at the vet, shakes it's head sadly and barks once.
The vet looks at the man and says,
"Look, I'm sorry, but the labrador thinks your dog is gone as well."
The man is finally resigned to the situation and thanks the vet for his help.
Once he has composed himself he asks the vet how much he owes for the visit.
The vet says,
"The total bill will be £1550"
Shocked, the man says
"£1550!!!"
"Just for telling me that my dog was dead?"
"That's completely outrageous!"
Exclaimed the man.
"Well"
The vet replies,
"I would only have charged you £50 for the initial diagnosis but you weren't happy with that and asked for further extensive testing to confirm the initial prognosis and I'm afraid that doesn't come cheap...."
Somewhat confused by this the man responded,
"Extensive Testing! Extensive Testing!"
"What extensive testing?"
The vet says,
"The additional £1500 was for the cat scan and the lab tests."
