Veterinary
"In my professional opinion, this dog has fleas."
"That's not a dog, it's a dragon."
"Oh. Well then, in my professional opinion, this dragon has fleas."


As ferocious as your tamed pet may be, at some point you may find yourself in a situation where a beloved pet is hurt, poisoned or both. With an investment in the Veterinary skill, you can heal most any ailment your pet may face.
The Tools
Bandages are a useful tool for healing any sort of beast.
Using Veterinary Skill
To use the Veterinary skill to attempt to heal an animal:
  • Double-click on a bandage.
  • Target the animal you wish to heal.
If successful, you heal the beast an amount of Hit Points dependent on your Veterinary and Animal Lore skills.

To cure a poisoned animal, you must have substantial skill in both Veterinary (above 60) and Animal Lore (above 60).

Tamed animals are more tractable, and a veterinarian will be able to work more quickly on them than on a wild beast. The minimum time to heal any animal is two seconds. (While the speed calculations are the same as those for the Healing skill, the tamed-animal bonus and the minimum speed mean that Dexterity does not actually affect the speed at which tamed animals are healed.)
Veterinary Skill and Reputation
Be wary when choosing to heal various beasts. Certain beasts are considered "evil" and healing them may result in your being flagged a criminal. Pets can be flagged criminal, just like their owners. If you heal a pet that is flagged criminal, and the pet does not belong to you, you may receive a criminal flag of your own.
