'Vet' gift ideas for 5 year old

My daughter is all about vets at the moment. I was thinking of getting her the 'Our Generation' vet surgery but it is enormous (and expensive) and we have limited space. Has anyone come across vet or animal themed gifts that would appeal to this age and take up less space?

My DD had a playmobil vet set that she loved

Plan toys does a lovely vet pack. www.babipur.co.uk/plan-toys-vet-set.html

But pricey but seems to fit your brief.

I bought this playmobil vet clinic on amazon, it's on offer at the moment too. It's for Christmas so no idea if it's any good!

Melissa and Doug do a dress up set.

Play mobile vet set
Plain cotton T-shirt and pj type trousers for 'scrubs'

First aid bandages to play with.

You could make a 'cone of shame' from an empty soda bottle and collar for a soft toy dog

You can also get cardboard pet carriers on eBay.

Real stethoscopes are actually fairly cheap, dd loved hers, dcat not so much. She could find heartbeats.

Friends GD has one and performs operations on soft toys. It's good for visits.

Get an actual stethoscope - they can be really cheap on Amazon. They're not perfect but you can certainly hear real heartbeats, lung sounds and tummy gurgles. DD has a pink one, we've used it to check the DC for wheeze when they had a lingering cough last March as more convenient than digging DH's work kit out...

Velcro bandages for teddies works well too.

This is brilliant!

I bought this set for my 3 year old niece and she loves it

One of those enormous you dogs on a lead?

Plus real pet bowls for her to feed them!

Toy dogs

I picked this up for my 6yo. It looks quite good. It’s double this price on amazon

I was going to say playmobil too, there are a few different vet type sets you can go for of various prices

Vet sets at Argos

I would get her a dog/cat/rabbit cuddy toys, and a doctors bag/set, or real stethoscope, self sticking bandages (there are ones with paws on them etc) , medicine, syringe, torch to look in eyes etc. Maybe a bed/basket/blanket for them to sleep in when ill.
