Are you ready for it? Today is the official release date for The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs! From now on you can make your own cats and dogs in The Sims 4! FINALLY!
There have been many discussions on The Sims 5’s release date over the last years. So far, no release date has been confirmed by Electronic Arts or Maxis. Is it impossible to say when The Sims 5 is coming? Perhaps not! Sims fansite DownloadSims5.com made a clever calculation, which can be found in their article: What is the release date for The Sims 5?
The article shows that each Sims generation (The Sims, The Sims 2, The Sims 3 and The Sims 4) lasts for about 58 months. The Sims 4, the fourth generation, was released in September 2014. Adding 58 months to this could mean that The Sims 5 will be released in July 2019. However, as the fansite stated, it is not very likely that Sims games will be released in the middle of the summer. Therefore, it is more likely that the game will come between July and September 2019.
Once again, we have to wait for an official confirmation!

Less than 15 days till this new expansion pack comes out!
It’s time for yet another new blog about The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs, which will be released on the 10th of November! This time you’ll read more about running your very own vet clinic in the upcoming expansion pack. The blog includes new pictures too! Keep on reading below…
Open Your Very Own Vet Clinic
Hello Simmers! Roll up your sleeves and get ready to work, because The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs* has arguably our best business venue yet. In this latest expansion, your Sims can open a Vet clinic and begin working as the local town Vet. In doing so, they can design the clinic however they wish in Build mode to match their personal style and hire a staff.
Naturally, give employees raises, fire and discipline them, or even force them to wear ridiculous outfits. Or, normal ones, but where’s the fun in that? Those with Outdoor Retreat can have their Veterinarians wear the bear suit!
Much of the action revolves around your Sim improving their Vet Skills, which is key because your Sims themselves are the vets. If you want, train the entire family as your staff to maximize the number of clients you can serve and save on wages! The first stop is the exam table. Here, your Sim will need to carefully balance the patient’s stress levels while performing tests to diagnose the issue. There are a variety of new ailments in the game, like Fleas, Gilded Guts Disorder, and Advanced Swamp Mouth. Once you isolate the cause, you can perform the treatment and collect payment.
Or, you can take a shot in the dark and see where that leads you. But, beware! Using the wrong treatment will cost your Sims valuable time, Simoleons, and heavily stress out your patient!
Some treatments are too complicated for the exam table and require surgery. Luckily, we have a robust surgery station to perform these complicated treatments. Your Sim can also spay, un-spay, neuter, and un-neuter pets as well. Sadly, pets emerge wearing the cone of shame, but don’t worry, it only lasts for a short time.
When not serving patients in need, your Sims can also craft new Medicines (or direct employees to do it) to sell in the vending machine, use on their own pets, or administer at the exam table to de-stress pets. There’s never a dull moment at the vet clinic!
Long term, pay to train your best employees, or unlock powerful new perks to improve your business further. There’s so much to discover at the vet, and so many ways to customize the experience to enjoy it on your terms.
The Sims 4 Cats and Dogs has so many new things to do, but we made sure players who love earning Simoleons and telling stories have a great new way to do just that as a veterinarian. This is a first for The Sims and we cannot wait to see what you think about it. Perfect that bedside manner and prepare some proper puppy care this November!
*Requires The Sims 4 game (sold separately) and all game updates to play.
Are you as excited about The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs as we are? We hope so! The 10th of November is the official release date for this fourth expansion pack! You’ll find the countdown on our upcoming releases page, as well as on the right side of this site!
