7. Small Animal Clinic
“As a vet student, I’m certain you had contact with both large and small animals in the 5 days before becoming sick. Can you tell me more about that exposure?" Dr. Lange probed.
"Well, I remember one day we had several cats come in from the animal shelter because they all had diarrhea. I remember one cat in particular who stayed in the clinic most of the day. The owner was demanding antibiotics…"
Ms. Bair adopted a cat from the shelter 2 days before it developed diarrhea. The cat went home with antibiotics for a respiratory problem, and now Ms. Bair wants a more powerful antibiotic that can handle the diarrhea as well.
