Veternarians are there to make sure our pets are safe and healthy – but that doesn’t mean our furry friends have to enjoy those visits.

They’re a lot like humans in that they’d often just rather stay home and wait it out when they’re sick.

But since we love them (sometimes more than ourselves), we have to take care of their health needs in a timely manner. And it’s really too bad we can’t explain to them that it’s necessary.

These 50 owners were on their way to the vet when the animals got wind of what was happening. And their reactions are priceless (and sometimes a little bit pathetic).
