The initial investment is lower than other businesses such as restaurants, so we can always opt for the veterinary clinic if we do not have enough money and we want a faster economic return.

Just find a good piece of land and build your clinic. In the base clinic it includes the waiting room with several seats and a television; a bathroom so that visitors can visit it while they are waiting, and obviously our clinic room where we will have a counter and also different machinery to care and cure the animals.

You don’t need to change the default options, but you can vary the price range, uniforms, and treatment quality by clicking on the appropriate edit icons.

You can always configure the counter so that they do not accept more visitors for a short period of time.

Helping all patients

We will receive patients, but we will begin to interact with them when they are registered. When this has happened we can greet the patient and he will tell us what is wrong with his pet.

As soon as you click on the check mark in the pop-up window when they are speaking to you, the examination process should be activated.

Once you have him treated in the room, you can choose a treatment from a wide variety of examination procedures such as taking a temperature, examining the ears or the fur. As you go through these tests, the symptoms will appear in a list of the different treatment options.

But while you do the above, the pets are going to get stressed, and therefore you should take a look at the stress level bar of the animal that is in the upper left. So try to regulate the bar so that it does not reach the maximum or you will give up the patient. When you have administered the correct treatment, you will have cured the pet. Do not forget to bill the pet owner and with that you will have finished the interaction with the patient so that you can attend the next one.

We advise you to buy a surgery station because it will help you diagnose and treat conditions that cannot be reported in the traditional way. Of course, you have to wait for the diagnostic ability to increase.

Hiring staff

But at the end of the day we will have to hire staff especially when our clinic is more popular. Our staff will also gain skill as more and more pets are treated.

When hiring staff we must expand our clinic by providing additional bathrooms and also a break room. It is also convenient that you buy a robot vacuum cleaner since at certain times our employees will not be able to clean the consultation and that will cause many patients to leave.

If we do it right, we can take advantage of aspiration points so that we can acquire benefits and hire additional vets, while reducing training costs.

Taking a clinic to 5 stars

But the idea is that we try to have a five-star clinic and you must be attentive to the different growth statistics that are shown to us after each day so that we can identify which areas we should promote.

You must take into account the following if you want to reach the maximum level of your clinic:

  • Have a nice, clean and neat clinic with a multitude of rooms, seats and elements so that patients do not get bored
