Learn while you play. Our team of experts use education, technology, and content-area expertise to create interactive virtual simulators.
You got hired right out of veterinary medicine school. Your new employer recognized your talent and love for animals right away. They chose you to help them launch their brand-new vet clinic! Show them everything you’ve learned while helping raise the clinic’s reputation. Save animal’s lives by treating numerous complex scenarios. Identify unknown injuries and wow new customers with your stellar animal care. In your downtime, feel free to play fetch with the clinic’s mischievous mascot, Bruce. No need to be nervous! If you forget how to do anything, the boss will be more than happy to go over all veterinary fundamentals with you.
VetVR is a complex, first-person, virtual reality veterinary simulator. Set in the environment of a brand-new veterinary clinic, VetVR offers users comprehensive training in veterinary fundamentals through a fun and engaging platform great for users of all ages.
Users will learn while they play by navigating through numerous in-depth medical scenarios and making split-second decisions that will affect whether their animal patient lives or dies. We offer many training levels to prepare users for these high-intensity situations and reward success with fun Easter eggs and the ability to unlock new and exotic animal cases. Users will build confidence and use everything they have learned in VetVR to save the lives of animals with urgent and unknown injuries.
When mistakes are made, our players can rest easy knowing they will be able to restart the scenario and learn from failure without any real-life consequences. On top of the hands-on learning, we also offer the ability to take quizzes and prepare for tests in VetVR including activities that test the recognition, use, and/or assembly of vital veterinary equipment and drugs.

Embrace and leverage state-of-the-art virtual reality (VR) technology for comprehensive training
To enable open access to content-specific training in virtual reality, with a specialty in veterinary fields
We value research and validated studies on the educational implications of virtual reality training. We also develop comprehensive virtual reality trainings
Industry practices require the use of actual animals for operating room training. This can endanger the animal, so students must get to a certain level of expertise before they can access the process. This limits hands-on training time for students
The mannequin-based training used to accommodate live animal restrictions are expensive, costing as much as as $60 to 100k per mannequin
Access to high-quality intensive veterinary training is limited in many non-affluent populations due to costs and limited resources
Yearly training is necessary to maintain veterinary and veterinary technician licenses, even after someone has become a veterinarian. The renewal training is currently limited to taking place at physical facilities
User choices will affect animal patients in real-time, just like in real life. Learning from mistakes without any real harm is unique and allows users to have fun. Users can restart or play any scenario as many times as they want. This increases access to hands-on training hours and helps build confidence
Aural and haptic responses from animals on the exam or surgery tables recreate both clinic and operating room procedures with unparalleled accuracy. We provide users with more realistic and high-intensity simulations of urgent veterinary cases that veterinary mannequins cannot provide
VetVR allows for high-quality and intensive education that is lower- cost and more accessible to all.
As the star employee in a new veterinary clinic, VetVR creates a fun game in which users can increase their clinic's reputation and unlock rewards by completing a variety of scenarios. Younger users can stick to the easier levels and enjoy their time as a veterinarian helping heal minor animal wounds. We offer everything from the chance to play fetch with and give treats to clinic's dog resident, to Easter eggs that unlock fun music, games, and even new animal scenarios! Players might even learn how to take better care of their own animal residents.
