After reading e-mails from some of my pals at  Cornell College of Veterinary School, it has come to my attention that I have been neglecting a vital part of the practice of medicine…animals. With that being said, I’d like to introduce Pet Pals: Animal Doctor, a game developed by Legacy Interactive / Frontline Studios.

The game was originally developed for Nintendo DS but is apparently available for the PC (free to try) as well. In Pet Pals, players diagnose and treat 30 different medical cases that are created by real-life veterinarians. There are 23 different pets to treat from dogs to even the hamster. Medical cases range from broken bones to even hairballs.

A great game for future and current veterinarians as well as current physicians who would like to give veterinary medicine a shot.
