[NEEDS INPUT] [CD] Can't cure pet sickness at home

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.59.73.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get To Work, Get Famous, Get Together, Cats and Dogs, Seasons, City Living, Parenthood, Outdoor Retreat, Vampires and Realm of Magic
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Examine a cat at your home lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? The exams have been completed, but one symptom is still unknown.
What do you expect to see? If I examine my cat, it should be possible to figure out what the sickness is.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

As you can see in the picture, my cat was sick and I examined it at home. But the sickness was not figured out despite my sim completed all exams. I even tried all treatments which were available but none of them worked. Had to take the cat to the vet.

@TheCoolGuy247 Question to this:

- Did your Sim have any Vet Skill at all ?
- Does your Sim own a clinic himself ?

My sim did not have any vet skill till this examine.

My household did own the vet clinic once, but they lost it due to moving.

@TheCoolGuy247 Could you test if it works if you learn some vet skill first ? Through a book possibly.

The "problem" with using the exam table at home (or even at an owned clinic) is that your pet may have an illness your sim is not sufficiently skilled to cure.

 

If you go to an NPC clinic with your pet, the whole pet sickness system goes into play and you can have your pet cured. 

 

If you own a clinic the "sick" pets that come in for "treatment" usually match the skill + rating of your clinic.

 

If no "cure" presents itself, you can usually use the "cone of shame" treatment.

The crazy thing is that my other sim, who has level 2 or 3 of the vet skill, was able to examine and cure the pet at home.

@TheCoolGuy247 So you need vet skill then. Doesn't sounds like a bug to me, tbh.
