I am just wondering how often is normal for a pet to get sick? I only have one pet (I know - crazy), but I take very good care of him. I feed him healthy foods and I give him exercise in his pool and on his treadmill and I always put him in bed before I log out. He gets sick about once a month which frustrates me because even though I can get his health up with medicine, it takes a while to get his happiness back up. My son (yes, I'm a mom who loves Webkinz) hardly ever feeds his pets healthy food and my other son will go days without even logging into Webkinz, and their pets hardly ever get sick. Am I doing something wrong?
Hmmm not sure why yours is getting sick so often. Mine has never been sick and he is over a year old. Try giving him a treat every once in a while, and maybe visit Dr. Quack once in a while?.. although I never visit Dr. Quack.
I would write to Plumpy about this because, there could be something wrong with your account. But, for now make sure you give him a treat every so often take him to the Arcade or have a Webkinz pal over. Also you can give him unhealthy foods every so often just for a little fun.Good Luck!!
Thanks for your advice. I do give him treats (especially popcorn because that's his favorite food) - I didn't mean to sound like I ONLY gave him healthy stuff. And he plays at the arcade alot. Maybe he is lonely - I haven't been visiting anyone much lately. I just feel bad because every time he gets sick it takes almost a whole day to get his happiness back up.
I only have one Webkinz. I've had the account for 5 1/2 months now, and he's been sick twice in that time - one of those was when I first adopted him.
I almost never visit other Webkinz' houses (maybe once or twice a month when my sis or niece wants to invite me over instead of playing in the Tournament Arena), and never have others over. So it doesn't seem like being lonely will make them sick.
I do log in almost every day (I've missed maybe 10 days total when I was away or just couldn't get connected). The majority of the time I do the daily activities and a job, then log back out. I play games in the Arcade or Tournament Arena about once or twice a week.
I usually keep my Webkinz' meters close to 100 (I let hunger get to the low 80's if I want to feed him a cooked food because those are worth that much sometimes). I don't worry much about what I'm feeding him (I never buy food, so it would be something the Daily Care Award gave for free), and if his health meter goes down from feeding him I either let him jump on his trampoline or swim. Maybe making sure his health always stays close to 100 helps him stay healthy with minimal effort?
My golden retriever got sick for the first time 2 nights ago, and I've had my puppy for 2 months. Logged in and saw that my poor puppy had a red nose and an ice pack on her head. I panicked at first, but then realized that all I need to do is take her to the pet clinic. Bought her some medicine and the doctor suggested that I feed her jello and popsicles for a day or two. She's fine now, and her health is at 99%.
