It’s a great start of the day for the Grand Opening of Caring Paw Vet Clinic. Before she opens, Beatrice plants the napnip and madnip that she collected.Then she gives Buttercup her breakfast. It’s going to be a pretty exciting day for Buttercup, too, meeting and greeting all kinds of pets.After Buttercup finishes her breakfast, it’s time to go potty. I get a notice that says that Buttercup has learned to pee outside. Yes! Good Buttercup!Beatrice opens the clinic. Mark-up is 75%. While she is waiting for patients, she works on making an industrial strength relaxation serum. She makes one and I tried to put it in the vending machine, but it somehow disappeared. Oh no! (I later found it. If you click on the medicine making machine it says Open, and there it was.)Seiji Sasaki had come into the clinic and looked in the vending machine, but unfortunately, it was empty, so he left. Beatrice needs to fill that vending machine to get some sales.Not long to wait, Bernice gets her first patient! Brent Hecking comes in with his dog, Rosie.
Rosie walks so, so slowly like a dog-crawl towards the exam table. Whatever she has is hurting her paws, and they look so red!When Rosie is on the exam table, Bernice has to calm her down. With really nervous pets, I guess this would be great to give them the relaxation serum.There are 3 symptoms to Rosie’s disease and so Bernice takes her temperature, checks her fur and looks into her mouth and discovers that Rosie has Blazing Tootsies. Poor Rosie!Bernice knows that the Parasite killer spray will work for Rosie and make her feel all better. And it does and Bernice cures her first patient!Bernice also achieves level 2 in the vet skill.Oh and just in time because there is another sim in the waiting room getting to know Buttercup.Supriya and Justin Delgato have come in with their dog, Blue. Blue doesn’t seem to be sick, but you never know.
Oh good, just the annual check-up.Blue is a bit nervous, but Bernice knows how to calm her down and pets her telling her it will be ok. Buttercup is taking a little dog nap in the exam room while Blue is being examined.There are 5 symptoms to this exam. Blue passed her exam and was healthy and just needed a preventative shot. Bernice told her what a good dog she was and gave her a treat. Blue was so happy and so was her owner, Justin.
Yeah! Bernice reaches level 3 of the vet skill and gets a cute “raise your paws” wall decal.Bernice is pretty tired at this point, but she’s only seen 2 patients, she can’t close now. And she doesn’t and in walks Catarina Lynx….but where is her pet?
Doc follows Bernice to the exam table. Doc has a red nose and is blue. What type of a cat is blue? Is this a Russian Blue cat? No, those cats have more hair, whereas, Doc hardly has any hair at all.Doc is an elder cat and pretty nervous, but Bernice is gentle and calms Doc enough to start the exam.There are 3 symptoms to the disease and Bernice performs all the exams quickly before she has to calm Doc down again. Doc has Winterfest Fever and Bernice has a fixitol treat to cure Doc. Doc isn’t sure, but heck, it’s a treat! And Bernice cures her 3rd patient.With the clinic still open, Bernice tries to have a bite to eat and a bit of a rest. But there is no rest in the vet clinic today.Catarina is back with another cat. This time it’s Josie.Bernice decides to greet Josie this time.
Ok, so you may be wondering why Bernice’s hair has changed into a different style. Well, part-way through the exam, Bernice decided that she wanted to go to bed. I didn’t “x” out that interaction fast enough and she had already changed into her pajamas. I changed her back into her vet clinic uniform, but for some reason, her hair style stayed the same.
When Bernice went to examine Josie, I also “disallow new patients” at the check-in pet podium. Poor Josie has a glowing nose, but no blue fur. There are 3 symptoms to the disease and by the end of the exam, Bernice has found that Josie has Common Lava Nose.With a little spray of some organic disinfectant spray, Josie is as good as new. And Catarina looks really happy that her precious Josie has been cured. Yeah! Bernice cures her 4th patient of the day.Unfortunately, Bernice is so tired and just can’t stand up anymore and promptly does a header and falls on the floor. The clinic is closed for the day.
Of course Buttercup is wide awake wondering when she will get some dinner. Oh don’t worry, Bernice feeds her when she wakes up. Sleep tight Bernice, more pets to treat tomorrow.What a busy and tiring day for Bernice. She had 4 patients and was open 13 hours. Maybe a bit too long. Bernice received 1 star. Patients thought that her bedside manner was excellent, but that the ambiance and quality of service needed improvement. Bernice made $500 simoleons and earned 780 perk points.
* * * * *
I am not sure why Bernice only got 1 star. Every sim left with a 3 star over their head, but I think there might be some other factors for those stars. So, that was kind of disappointing. Maybe she lost stars for falling asleep on the job? Ummm…that could be it!
A photo blooper of Doc. Ummm…does this look familiar? Bernice: Oh gosh! Do you think there is a new pet disease in Brindleton Bay? Purrfect Bonz was experiencing the same thing! Oh no! An epidemic!
