Majesco Entertainment is out with the game "Zoo Hospital." The title tells the story here -- the game lets animal lovers get a sense of what's it like to care for a host of animals, ranging from reptiles to mammals to birds.

The setting for all this animal care is Aunt Lucy's Zoo, a struggling facility that is on the verge of being demolished. Players use the Wii remote to feed, treat and otherwise coddle the various animals.

Mini-games let players learn how to do things like eliminate parasites and perform dental work on the animals. The title is rated "E" for everyone by the ESRB.
