1) Video card drivers are out of date. Please visit this link http://www.valusoftsupport.com/KBArticle.asp?kbid=451 to determine your video card driver's date. Drivers that are over 6 months old are considered old.

2) Your video card does not support the minimum system requirements listed on the box. Many built in/integrated video card do not support Hardware T&L/Pixel Shaders. Please consult with your computer manufacturer to find out if you system supports Hardware T&L/Pixel Shaders.

You need a newer graphics card that can handle the requirements of this game. NVIDIA is what I go with. Depending on what you get, will depend on the price, but it is a good investment if you plan on doing a lot of gaming and such. Let me know if you have any further questions and I would be glad to help.

PIxel shader unavailable would point to your video adapter being too old for this game. You would need to buy a newer videocard if your pc has a free slot.

    Heres a quote from another person with the same problem

    "We initially had trouble getting this game to work as it required a
    video card with a "pixel shader", which was not supported by our
    onboard video adapter on a brand new PC. After installing an
    inexpensive Nvidia 8400GS video card, the game works perfectly. Any
    basic gaming video card should work for this game. It was a bit
    surprising that a game for 8 year olds required a more advanced video
    card, but now that we are past that hurdle, my daughter has really
    enjoyed the game. She has said that Pet Vet 2 is better than Pet Vet 1
    on Nintendo DS or Pet Vet 1 for PC. I find this game fairly
    entertaining to play with my daughter and aside from the having fun, it
    does have some good aspects around planning and budgeting to grow your
    vet practice."

    I will need to know your computer brand, and model to find out what kind of a card your pc supports.

Consult your video card manual. If it supports pixelshaders - update the drivers. If there is no mention of it - yes, you need a new card. Or you could try some emulation software, but I do not recommend doing that.

Your video card is not adequate for this game. There are many different types of cards on the market and most new games require high end cards for all the shading and lighting effects. ATI and NVIDIA have exellent products and recommend upgrading video card.

Graphics card


Unfortunately, it sounds like you will need a new graphics card to run that game. Pixel shaders are built into the graphic card hardware and there is no way to download or install them. According to the games system requirements you need a 100% compatible Directx 9.0C card. If you post the make and model of your computer(or motherboard) I could recommend a card for you.
