Dr. V: OK Mr. Jones, your pug Dudley needs a dental cleaning. Unfortunately, at 28 pounds he’s a pretty severe anesthetic risk. We have a little time to wait, so how about we work on his weight and plan to do the dental in a few months?
Mr. Jones: Oh absolutely! Give me that r/d card, I’m on it!
Dr. V: I’m so happy to hear that you are on board! We’ll see you for Dudley’s weight check in a month.
Dr. V: Did Dudley miss his weight check appointment?

Dr. V: Oh, Dudley’s coming in today! Great! Let’s see how he did on his diet.
(sounds of snorting from across the waiting area by the scale.)
Dr. V: What’s he weighing in at today?
Tech: 32 pounds.
