I bought this game at Target, in desperation: I needed a Mac game to entertain my 7 year old while on vacation, with no time to do any research or to wait for an order. I looked at it skeptically; my daughter begged. I hoped the award seal on the box was a good sign.

I quite like it. We played it together for many hours, following the guidance to help a variety of animals: dogs, cats, a turtle, a fish, an iguana, a rabbit, and even a tarantula. It's a good learning experience, and it engaged my daughter in thoughtful problem solving rather than leaving her frustrated and grumpy. Even though I'm fairly experienced with animal care, I found it interesting to play as well. There's a fair amount of reading to do, using real veterinary words, so it's a little over her head on her own. I had to read some of the case notes to her, but I enjoyed it and I expect with just a little more time, she'll be more familiar with the vocabulary and confident enough to read it herself. She needs more reading practice, and she's highly interested in following along.

The game does a good job of being matter-of-fact and professional, asking you to select the three most pertinent, professional questions to ask, handling injections, rectal temperatures, and stool samples with a minimum of fuss. It will present the cases with info on the normal pulse and temperature for that species, then ask the doctor if a particular reading is high, low, or normal. The cases seem well chosen to help educate about the care of the various species and to help compare and contrast appropriate care for different animals. We had a rabbit with a hairball, and we learned that rabbits cannot vomit, that hairballs are life-threatening, and that rabbits are poor surgical candidates.

My daughter loves animals so this was a perfect game for her. It is very realistic except for the grooming which I am sure would be difficult to simulate. She enjoys trying to analyze what is wrong with the pet and treating it.

A Kid's Review on July 5, 2008
I love this game, it's fun and educational! Well, actually the name of this game used to be "Petz Vet" but I guessed it just changed! Anyway, you can do so much cool stuff and all the stories are fun!

A Kid's Review on February 18, 2009
I really like Pet Pals Animal Doctor, because it has lots of different kinds of real veterinarian tools, and it has MANY sick/injured animals to treat (dogs, cats, iguana, bullfrog, clown fish, turtle, rabbits, etc.). All this makes it a not only fun program but an educational 1 too. Another cool feature is a zoology quiz with 149 questions. Also there is an encyclopedia like thing that has lots of information about all the different kinds of animal you treat. GREAT GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This software is fun but does have difficult vocabulary for my 7 year old. The concept is engaging and the play educational. I am sure this game will please an older child (3rd or 4th grade level) adequately.

Hi again, animal lovers of all ages!!! (wait, did I spell that right?!?)
If you have read my reveiw of new leash on life, than you should be able to comprehend...comperhend... Whatever.
I downloaded on a VERY OLD windows XP, and it works very well. as my title implies, the sequel is much more graphic than this (Don't worry the sequel is not that bad). well, I don't really have much to say.... akward. r awkward, GRRR.....

ANYWHO...you don't get to do as much in the way of operations,(the cases are a little less dire emergency) but you get to do way more animals.

srry not much to say to you people, so PEACE OUT!

I bought this for my granddaughter, an avid animal lover, for Christmas. When we tried to install on my computer, I found that it requires a legacy version of QuickTime so had to uninstall my current version to make it work. Only then did I realize this game is dated 2006. Should have been a tip-off that the software might be out of date. Next time, I'll check publication date before buying!
