Neopian Diseases and Cures

You wouldn't think it, but Neopia can be a pretty sickly place sometimes! With diseases ranging from Grumbles to Bloaty Belly roaming the streets, chances are that at some point your Neopets will fall ill. Whether you rely on the standard pharmacy, more alternative medicines, or the Healing Springs, there's something for every pet.

Diagnosing Your Pet

So, you think your pet is sick? Well there's an easy way to check! You can tell whether not pets are sick by their emotions or by visiting the Quick Ref page. If your pet is sick, you will see a message about what illness they have. This message will also include a handy link to the Neopian Hospital where you can view a list of all diseases, as well as fun descriptions about them.

Where to Buy Medicine

Once you know what disease your pet has, the next step is purchasing the proper medication. Check the table in the next section (known cures) to see what type of medication to purchase. All of these items are sold in either the Neopian Pharmacy, Lost Desert Medicine, or Remarkable Restoratives in Shenkuu. You can also visit the Shop Wizard and purchase the items from fellow Neopians.

Once you've purchased an item, simply select 'cure' from the dropdown menu in your inventory to give it to the appropriate pet.

Healing Strategies

If the medicine your pet needs is too expensive, don't worry. You have several options that don't involve buying the cures listed below. If you are stingy like me, your best bet is to visit the Healing Springs every 30 minutes, free of charge, until your pet is healed.

If you're in a hurry, though, there's an option that doesn't involve the wait of the Healing Spring. You can actually give your pet a different disease that's cheaper to cure - check out our items that give diseases article for a list of items you can use. We recommend feeding your pet Poisonous Jelly. It's extremely cheap and will give your pet NeoMonia, which can be healed with Medicinal Soap.


Don't we look delicious?

Known Cures

The following table lists all of the illnesses that your Neopet can catch, as well as any items that are known to cure them. We have divided these items up into two different categories - guaranteed to cure and potential to cure. Items in the guaranteed category are from the Neopian Pharmacy and have a 100% success rate at healing your pet. They will heal your pet on the first attempt. The items in the potential category are purchased from Lost Desert Medicine or Remarkable Restoratives. Some are also awarded from various site events. These items, as the category name suggests, have the potential to cure your pet. They are not guaranteed to work on the first attempt - it may take many tries before they are successful.

Cure-Alls

The following table contains "potential" cure-alls. These items are multi-function, meaning that one of their functions is a complete cure-all, but that they also have other known functions (for example: making your pet not hungry). It is random which effect you will receive, so while these items have the chance of fully curing your pet it is not a guaranteed effect on the first (or fifth) usage.

The "Doctor Who?" Boon

Certain factions give the opportunity of activating the Doctor Who? boon if you side with them and they emerge victorious from the Battleground of the Obelisk. When selected this boon will automatically heal your pet of any disease it contracts.

Hit Point Restorers

Some items, although labeled as medical cures, will not actually cure your pet of an illness. Rather, these items work like healing potions. This means that they have the ability to restore some (or all) of your pet's hit points. It may take several tries before they work, however. They are not guaranteed to work on the first attempt.

It isn't known which ailments the following items are intended to cure. If you happen to know what any of these items cure, please let us know!

Glitched Items
