It’s no secret that Pokémon GO has completely taken over our lives, but have you ever considered how having a few Pokémon around your vet clinic might actually be helpful? These veterinary hospitals went to Facebook to show off their surprisingly handy Poké-friends.

1.) Promote neutering

2. Get their vitals checked

3. Amuse the clinic cat

4. Assist in the lab

5. Become the newest patient

6. Keep kenneled pets company

7. Promote the practice

Have Pokémon invaded your clinic?

We’d love to see what Pokémon are doing at YOUR veterinary hospital! Post your pics in the comments.
