Veterinary video game released
The AVMA recently launched AVMA Animal Hospital, an online time-management game in which players work as veterinarians to diagnose conditions and treat animals as they arrive. As players navigate the game, they learn about ailments, diagnostics, and treatments.
AVMA Animal Hospital, aimed at middle-school children and educators, is available to everyone and is free to play.
The Association worked with developers at Game Gurus to create the video game, which was funded through a grant provided by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.
The game was released in May and is available through the AVMA website, www.avma.org; the Apple App Store; and the Android Market.
