The Sims 2 Pets is a console game in The Sims series released for Nintendo DS. It was released in US and Canada in October 31, 2006, October 27, 2006 in Europe and October 26, 2006 in Australia.
In this game the player's Sim is a vet who can have either a dog or a cat. The Sim looks after pet patients. When that pet is better the owner will collect them, and if the vet does a good job they get money and increased reputation. The Sim can also take their own pet to the park and interact with other Sims. Unlike The Sims 2, the control pad cannot be used to move a Sim, this has been retained in Castaway and Apartment Pets.
- The game was released in Europe prior to its North America release. Other examples of this happening are The Sims 3 for the Wii and 3DS.
- Due to this, this is the first handheld game released in Europe before the U.S. and Canada.
- The 3DS game, The Sims 3 Pets corrected this where it will be released in the European Union after the United States.
