Petz Vet is a game designed mainly for the youngest animal lovers. It gives you a chance not only to care for your favorite pets, like in Catz and Dogz, but also to become a veterinarian. Taking on that challenge means hands full of work with care-needing animals.
The game offers almost 40 different repeatable scenarios, in which you get to stabilize the dog's broken limb, give the rabbit a medicine for stomachache, or save a frog that got too hot in the sun. There also occur special cases, which need you to put all other matters aside and tend to that particular one. Regardless of the seriousness of a matter, you can use special medical equipment, such as bandages, syringes, and x-ray generator.
Medical challenges are not the only ones present in the game – you can also bathe and brush pets. Apart from the aforementioned animals, there are also snakes, turtles, horses, fish, and birds. Patients are brought to the player’s office by their owners, featuring a wide variety of characters.
All this offers much fun, full of various mini-games. Less experienced players can make use of interactive tutorial, explaining all major gameplay elements step by step. Moreover, apart from being fun, the game also bears an educative aspect. While playing you can learn key facts about particular animals.
