Nothing can substitute for the owner's personal knowledge of her pet. We know what is unusual behavior. When you think about it, the vet relies much on what you tell him has been happening. They use that information to zero in to confirm what may or may not be the problem. Blood tests and other tests help confirm and guide the diagnosis. We rely on the owner's description also when we are trying to offer suggestions.
