Next Episode of Dr. Dee: Alaska Vet is
From traveling across glaciers and mountains to enduring sub-zero temperatures and endless days without daylight, there is no more challenging place to be a veterinarian than Alaska. Despite myriad challenges and risks, Dr. Dee Thornell made it her life's mission to care for the wild and domestic animals of America's largest state - no matter what. Animal Planet's new series, Dr. Dee: Alaska Vet chronicles her single-minded dedication to treat the animals of the Land of the Midnight Sun even if she needs to learn to fly a plane to reach them. The eight-episode series premieres on Saturday, November 7th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Animal Planet. A quirky former Midwesterner, Dr. Dee left the lower 48 more than 25 years ago and never looked back. After starting her veterinary business out of a pick-up truck, she now owns and operates Animal House, the most sophisticated veterinary hospital in Fairbanks, Alaska. Animal House isn't your typical animal hospital. On any given day, you'll find Dr. Dee and her staff treating a variety of animals that rarely appear on most vets' patient list - bald eagles, owls, chinchillas, beavers, iguanas, ox, moose and bears - that often requires her to leave the high-tech luxuries of her Fairbanks' clinic and rely on the bare necessities in these remote villages.

Dr. Dee flies to a remote village in Ruby, Alaska, to do a marathon spay and neuter clinic at a laundromat. At one of the largest cattle ranches in the state, Dr. Dee fights to deliver a calf struggling to be born.
