Cures And Alternatives To Heal Your Pet For Less!


by supernaturalneonpink

--------

Hello, fellow Neopian! Here is all you need to know about cures, alternative cures and locations of where you can buy these items! Is your pet sick and you're tired of waiting on the Healing Springs to heal your pet? Maybe you need to cure your pet before midnight and the Healing Springs power isn't restored before midnight hits and you need to reach your battledome item and neopoint limit? Listed here are alternative, cheaper cures to heal your pet of anything! In some illnesses, the alternative cure is cheaper than the cure the hospital listed. Listed are the pharmacy cures, the Lost Desert cures and Remarkable Restoratives cures. Warning: These alternative cures may not work the first time.

Alternative cures (These three items have a chance of healing your pet of any illness). Each cure listed has the most current lowest averages on the SSW.

  • Cooling Ointment - 5,746 NP
  • Dangling Potion Bottle - 5,023 NP
  • Warm Amber Ointment - 5,720 NP

Here are some alternative cures that are very specific. Be sure to read before you buy the item.

Magic Ghost Marshmallows - 3,802 NP

Feeding a Ghost pet 'Magic Ghost Marshmallows' will restore its hit points to their maximum and they will heal your pet from any disease.

For Pteris:

If you feed your Pteri any 'worm' item, your pet will be bloated and healed from any disease.

For Kaus:

If you feed your Kau any 'milk' item, your pet will be bloated and healed from any disease.

But not always are the alternative cures cheaper than the cure for some illnesses. All cures are listed with the average lowest on the SSW. The first 5 illnesses listed are the ones that buying an alternative cure could save you neopoints. The ones listed after that tell you what is the cure is and the average lowest price as well as other alternative cures from Lost Desert Medicine and Remarkable Restoratives. While with the first 5, trying an alternative cure could save you a few thousand or even 90,000, some of the cures are just a small amount more expensive than the alternative cures so if you wanted to save a few hundred neopoints, you can try an alternative cure. For example, say your pet has Doldrums, the cure for that is Mushroom Ointment, which averages out to 6,800 NP. While you can buy the cure for that price, you could try the dangling potion bottle that sells for around 4,400 NP. But I must reiterate that the alternative cures are not 100% guaranteed to work. The only cures that are guaranteed to work is the cures from the pharmacy. Please also note that the Lost Desert Medicine and Remarkable Restoratives may be more expensive than the cure itself.
