When compared to the paladin’s spell list, the ranger’s available spells can seem a bit uninspiring. Though rangers have plenty of useful spells, they have nothing with the punch of bless weapon or holy sword. To close that power gap, we've offered three new ranger spells over the course of three months. Add them to your ranger’s repertoire and watch the sparks fly! This month our third spell, heal animal companion, enables you to care for your ranger's best friend.

Heal Animal Companion
Conjuration (Healing)
Level: Drd 5, Rgr 3
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Target: Caster's animal companion touched
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)

Heal animal companion enables the caster to wipe away disease and injury in one of his or her own animal companions (gained via class feature or the animal friendship spell). It completely cures all diseases, blindness, or deafness of the animal companion, cures all points of damage suffered due to wounds or injury, and repairs temporary ability damage. It cures mental disorders caused by spells or injury to the brain.

Heal animal companion does not remove negative levels, restore drained levels, or restore drained ability scores.
