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.Read more ›
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!

A great game while you're playing it, but definitely has a shorter shelf-life than you might want. For the $$$, not a bad buy, though.Published on June 6, 2011 by Homeschool Reviewer
This is a fun game. It can be challening at times, but is overall pretty easy. The voice-acting is atrocious and annoying, but the graphics are good. Read morePublished on April 10, 2009 by Michete
