The Hospital next to the Defenders HQ on the map of the Neopian Plaza

The Neopian Hospital is where you can take your sick pets to find out what medicine will cure them. 

Strangely enough for a hospital, it has no doctors, nurses, or patients, and does not heal anyone. The hospital will diagnose your pet's illness. That is, it will let you know what sickness your pet has, and which medicine will cure it.

The medicine is usually very expensive, so many people prefer to use the other healing options, like the Healing Springs.

Causes of disease

A disease can be caused many different things, the most basic of which is by Random Event. The others are more controllable by the user, as they are caused by certain food, games, or items. Infecting a Neopet with a disease is usually a newbie mistake. Some users purposefully make their Neopet sick if they've previously contracted something so that the cure that is then needed will be cheaper. (Like giving a pet neomonia instead of ugga ugga)


Ferocious Negg

May give your pet a random disease. It is available from the Negg Faerie. Probably one of the most commonly used disease causing items because it can also increase a pet's strength.

Poisonous Jelly

Obtained from the Giant Jelly, this may give your pet Neomonia.

Poisonous Lollypop

May give your pet floppy tongue. Given out by Jhudora for completing a level one quest.

Poisonous Mushroom

May give your pet Neopox. This is a retired item from the Apothecary, and it is highly collectable. It costs about 80,000 NP.

Rotten Omelette

May cause Ugga-Ugga. If you get this at the Giant Omelette, don't feed it to your pet.

Species specific

Some Neopets species can become sick by eating certain foods that otherwise do not make a pet sick at all.

  • Kyrii can get Itchy Scratchies from apples.
  • Quiggles get Neezles from eating ice cream, and other "cream" foods, because they are cold blooded and their blood changes temperature according to their surroundings.
  • Tonu can get Neezles from eating a Negg.
  • Skeiths can get Neezles from cheese items.


There are certain games (such as the Wheel of Excitement and the Wheel of Misfortune) that give a user's Neopet a disease, usually as a risk of playing the game for the rewards. The afflicted disease is usually changed every month or so.

Battledome Equipment

A Neopet gets a disease not by equipping Battledome Equipment, but by having an opponent attack them in the Battledome. Disease-causing weapons are popular in some circles as a sick Neopet, although able to finish the fight, cannot fight afterwards until they are cured. Most disease causing Battledome Equipment include poison in their name, but a few do not. These weapons are sometimes used to irritate others by wasting their time and Neopoints.

Buzz Poison Blaster

May cause Blurry Vision. It is multiple use, but is a species weapon and very over-priced for its icons. It is unlikely to be seen in the Battledome.

Coral Cutlass

May cause Fuzzy Fungus or Itchy Scratchies. This weapon is unavailable to the Neopian public and was used by the Cannon Master in the War for New Marauqa. The Cannon Master's use of this item caused cure prices for Fuzzy Fungus and Itchy Scratchies to skyrocket.

Darkness Scarab

May cause Itchy Scratchies. Does block all light but is in the price range of superior items like the Sword of Skardsden. Will be in a gallery before it's in a weapon set.

Mistletoe Potion

May cause Hoochie Coochies. A once per battle weapon that does 7-8 icons of damage. Weaker than Illusens Potion, but in the price range of Honey Potion. Too expensive to be seen in the Battledome.

Mysterious Hemlock Dart and Super Hemlock Dart

May cause Bloaty Belly. The only difference between the two is icon variety. A single use six icon weapon that costs about 600 NP. Rarely, you may see this used by a mean-spirited battler.

Poison Dart and Super Poison Dart

May cause Cricky Neck. Icons are exactly the same for the Super Poison Dart. A single use four icon weapon that costs about 300 NP. Doesn't do as much damage as Mysterious Hemlock Dart, but shows up more occasionally because the cure for Cricky Neck is much more expensive than Bloaty Belly.

Poison Muffin

May cause a random illness. A single use fifteen icon weapon. Since it is considered too expensive for the number of attack icons, especially for a one use item, it is unlikely to be seen in the 2-Player Battledome.

Poison Snowball

May cause Hoochie Coochies. A weak single use weapon that can be bought for 1 NP. A classic among Battledome irritants.

Poison Tipped Dagger

May cause Neowarts. The only cheap multiple use poisoning weapon, and can be bought for about 2000 NP. Many battlers keep one in their Safety Deposit Box for battles where they want to get back at friends or irritate strangers.

Poison Snowflake

May cause Hoochie Coochies. Sells for about 200 NP, over a hundred times more expensive than the Poison Snowball for less icons. Don't expect it ever to be used in the battledome.

Portable Cloud

May cause watery eyes. A very solid Battledome weapon that is given by Jhudora at level 47, and is therefore virtually non-existent.

Vile Swamp Water

May cause watery eyes. A multiple use six icon weapon that would be great for beginners, if it didn't cost over a million NP. If bought, it will be for a gallery, not battle.


Itchy Scratchies On 6th March 2001, there was an outbreak of Itchy Scratchies at the Money Tree. Any pets which visited it had a high chance of being infected. The epidemic was brought under control later the same day, and the Water Faerie from the Healing Springs offered to cure those she could. Scourgies On April Fool's Day 2011, the Scourgies pandemic was released. The highly contagious disease was discovered at 1:03:56 am NST, the Pharmacy releasing information about how many Neopets started to have fungus growing all over them, as well as itchiness, dizziness, and muscle aches. Cures could be distributed to Neopets from users at the hospital; you could cure someone else's pets, but not your own, leading to lots of boards created solely for the purpose of helping pets. You could choose to douse a pet in soup, slorgs, ice, splints, or blue goo.
