    Are there any awkward expressions?

    Hello, guys!

    (1) Its purpose is to implement preventive medicine and technical treatments that allow the health and welfare of animals.

    (2) Zoos provide settings that look like their habitats.

    Are there any awkward expressions or grammatical mistakes in the above sentences?
    Thanks for your help in advance.
    Have a great weekend!

    "Allowing an animal's health" is odd.

    I know this sentence is out of context, but you need to make sure the referent of "their" is obvious.

    They are mostly good.
