Mr. Fair Dinkum, Dr. Black’s cat. Sick or just sleeping?

Although our owners are very observant and in tune with their pets, our patients can’t talk to us and tell us where it hurts or exactly what they think is wrong, so diagnostic tools become very important in coming to the right diagnosis. We do this by figuring out two things: what is wrong and what isn’t wrong. What isn’t wrong is referred to in the profession as a rule-out and can prove just as important as an abnormal finding.
