A Vet for the day!
Our story is all about a Vet who works at a zoo to help make animals feel better.
Pretend you are a Vet and use your teddies and toys to be the different zoo animals.
Can you look after the animals and make them better again?
Do they need the same help or do they need different things?
Use the Zoo Vet story to help with your own ideas.
You can use the Patient details sheet to draw and write about what is wrong with the animals.
