The dangers of texting your vet (sort of NSFW)

So I was texting with my vet yesterday about dexamethazone dosages for Echo for the pulse therapy we want to try for his headshaking. As I was texting, I noticed that my iPhone auto-corrects "dex" to "sex". Suddenly, my innocent medical questions took on a whole new meaning. This was the text conversation I *almost* had with my vet:

So, how much sex do I need to give him every day? How often should I give it? Twice daily or is it OK to just give it at night?
And then...
Can I order sex online or do I need to come to the office to get it? 
And this morning, after we got the dosage protocol from another vet:
I'll give him sex right now since it says to do so in the morning. Thanks!
Fortunately I caught the autocorrect before I sent the texts, but I texted my vet after to tell about the near-miss. At least she's got a great sense of humor!


  1. Awesome! A perfect Damn You Autocorrect :-)

  2. Oh this made me laugh so much.

  3. Too funny! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. Funny! Good think you don't live too close to a beach...

  5. lol. My phone updated and ever since then it corrects everything. I will text in perfect english and it will change everything to non-sense. Such a pain!
