Disease (player-owned farm)

Disease is a status effect that has a chance of happening to player-owned farm animals on the Manor Farm and the Anachronia Dinosaur Farm. There are six different diseases with different symptoms. Players will have to correctly identify the animal's disease and cure it to gain Farming experience.

The amount of experience gained depends on the animal's growth stage: for a child, adolescent, and adult, 5% of the animal's "Gather Produce" experience will be rewarded, while only 1% for an elder will be given. To do this players must examine different parts of the animal (such as the mouth, eyes, legs, and stomach) to gain information about symptoms. From this, the player can identify the correct disease and cure the animal (no specific item needed). The POF disease icon.png icon is displayed over each animal when an animal is diseased if the upgrade has been bought from the Farmers' Market and then toggled on Granny Potterington.

Animals cannot die from a disease; their stats are lowered instead. Using the incorrect treatment would result in lowering the animals' stats further, whereas curing an animal increases its stats. Having enough food in the pen decreases the chance for animals to become diseased.

Animals cannot die at all at the player-owned farm with the exception of chinchompas with the unstable or nuclear trait, which have a chance to explode upon collecting their produce during a growth stage.

Curing 100 animals completes the Animal Whisperer achievement. Animals with high stats will not become diseased. Use animals with low stats in pens without food in order to complete this achievement.

There are symptoms common among many of the diseases (e.g. Smelly breath is present in flu, curse, and foot-in-mouth). Common symptoms are underlined in the table below.
