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
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.
