Panel 1: We find ourselves at Dr Schell's veterinary clinic. As other pet owners wait patiently for their pets to be tended to, we find Elly at the counter going all goggle-eyed because Schell's assistant or partner or what have you asks her if she's the constipation, the castration or the sore leg.
Summary: The reason for her shock is that this is much the same sort of thing she has to deal with when making a doctor's appointment for herself. It probably appals her that just she is seen as a symptom, the same thing applies to Farley.
