01 Introduction

You have recently graduated from veterinary school and are an associate in a small animal practice.  Your boss, having a new employee, has decided to take a vacation, leaving you in charge of the clinic while she is away.  Jan, a new client who has recently moved to the area, has made an appointment to see you today.

Initial case presentation:

Nemo is a 4 year old, neutered male domestic long-haired cat. 


Nemo comes to your animal hospital with a two-day history of inappropriate urination outside of his litter box, and pollakiuria (frequent urination).  The owner is very concerned because although she loves Nemo, she simply cannot tolerate a cat that urinates in inappropriate locations and not in the litter box.
