Blog about running a vet clinic in The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs

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!

New blog about unique personalities in The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs

Here’s a new blog about unique personalities for your cats and dogs in the upcoming expansion pack: The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs! Make sure to take a look at the new pictures as well.

Unique Personalities For Your Pets

Hello pet loving Simmers! Last week we told you all about Create-a-Pet and how you can make that perfect little face and the perfect little ears come to life in that perfect little dog or cat. Well, I’m here to blow your minds: That’s not all! That’s right, once you create the pet you can take them into Live Mode to change your Sims’ lives forever. Or should I say, furrever.

Expansion pack The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs

First and foremost, we wanted the cats and dogs to feel like cats and dogs. We wanted them to act like animals, ignore social norms, and surprise you. One of the phrases we’d toss around is that they needed to be “Sims for your Sims,” and have that quality to them that is clearly dog-like or cat-like.

We told stories to each other of our pets and this guided our efforts. Things like how our cats always hide on the fridge to avoid the dog. Or how my dog always sleeps upside down on the sofa, or how your cat is a side sleeper on the floor.

We didn’t want players micro-managing their dogs and cats. That seemed to remove their soul when we experimented with it, but also removed some of the surprise and delight of dog ownership. Instead, we worked to make sure your dogs and cats communicate to your Sims when they need something. Hungry dogs will carry their bowl to their owner when they want food and snooty cats will complain and refuse to use a dirty litter box.

We created a slew of Traits to help dogs and cats feel truly distinct. I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi in real life and I love that I can create an in-game Peaches that is Vocal, Hairy, and Active. Or, do I want her to feel Independent? Beyond this, cats and dogs also have quirks. Perhaps your cat is fierce when it comes to something, but absolutely terrified of the TV? You’ll never 100% fully understand your cat and dog, which is why it’s worth investing a lifetime of love to discover everything.

Dogs are very active and will need to be taken for walks. In addition to digging up surprises, some less fun than others, they’ll also chase birds, or demand a game of fetch down on the beach. Don’t worry, cats can also explore and find “gifts” to bring your Sims as well. In addition to walks, dogs can be trained a variety of tricks, or upgrade them to the full on obstacle course!

One of the great benefits of cats is how easily they entertain themselves. We created so many different cat condos to fit every sized home and level of cat fervency. Or, settle for the laser pointer and cat feather if you’re on a budget!

Most importantly, cats and dogs will love your Sims, and your Sims will love them. Sims are just happier around a furry companion, which makes all the work worth it when your Sim has a particularly rough day or just needs someone to talk to. After playing the game for months, I can say it’s almost impossible to go back to before having Cats and Dogs, much like it is for me in real life.

This November, your Sims will be able to adopt the most adorable puppy or kitten to bring to their home. From there, it’s up to your Sims to figure out what’s going on in their pets’ heads and how to give them the perfect home. We can’t wait for you to have this expansion!
