How to play

One "Rescuer" at a time competes to finish caring for all 4 animals in the quickest time. A different task is required for each animal. We bandaged a leg, listened to a heart, checked ears, and gave a shot.

The race begins by standing next to the basket with the animals. Once "Help" is yelled by the time keeper, the rescuer takes one animal and races to the exam table to perform the necessary medical treatment.

After that animal has been treated, the rescuer runs to the empty basket, places the cured animal there and returns to the 1st basket to retrieve the next patient. Treatment continues until all animals have been helped and gently placed in the basket to recover. The veterinarian with the quickest treatment time for all four animals wins!
