IZ: Dad, are you sick? IZ: I will stay by your side. IZ: But I can’t get in there. Noel has diarrhea after eating snacks. So we decided to take him to the vet Mr. Butler: Noel, let’s go to the vet. Let’s go. Let’s go to the vet. Let’s go. 3.9kg. You can bring him down now. Vet: Does he have an appetite as usual? Mr. Butler: Yes, he eats fine. Vet: Let’s take his temperature first. Let’s do easy tests first and then run some others Please bring Noel’s butt to my side, sir. Mr. Butler: He had bad diarrhea at first, but now it is not as bad. Vet: And he doesn’t have urinary blood, does he?
Mr. Butler: No, he doesn’t. Vet: If he has frequent diarrhea, then he goes into the cat litter box a lot, and some cats also pee while they are in the box. If he has a urinary problem because of the diarrhea, then it is ok. But, in most cases, the fundamental reason for the cat’s urinary problem is stress. And diarrhea can stress out the cat, in turn, causing a urinary problem. For now, I will treat diarrhea first. And if he is still peeing only a little by little, then we will also need to treat his urinary problem as well. If the snack really caused diarrhea, then medicine and a shot will probably make him better. It is recommended that you don’t give him hard food or snacks for a while. Then, I will give him a shot. Vet: The shot doesn’t really hurt. Mr. Butler: He is a bit of a crybaby, though.
Vet: Oh, is he? Then we will use a blanket to hold him. Vet: Nothing to get scared of. You are fine.
Please hold Noel’s face, sir. It is a bit cold, so cats get scared sometimes, but it doesn’t really hurt. Vet: Uhh… who made you cry?… (A Korean way to comfort someone) Oh Noel… Don’t get scared. Good boy. Oh, it was cold. It was cold. Mr. Butler: Oh… you are hiding in it. You got in there yourself. I will close the carrier for you. Do you think it is much safer to be in the carrier? Good-bye
