Next Episode of Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet is
In the frozen Yukon Territory in Northern Canada, you've got to be hearty and tough. You've got to expect solitude across frigid, remote landscapes with freezing temperatures, but even in the desolate wilderness you need a vet to help your ailing wiener dog. Enter Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet, that follows the experienced Dr. Michelle Oakley, veterinarian, as she makes house calls across thousands of square miles in the Yukon. Helping many species of animals, including an angry muskox, a caribou with a tumor, a defensive mama lynx, and a grey owl with an amputated wing. Accompanied by her teenage daughters and armed with humor as sharp as a scalpel, Dr. Oakley deftly juggles being a full-time veterinarian, wife and mom while taking us into the isolated regions of the Yukon.
Dr. Oakley's daughter is graduating high school and leaving home, making the vet emotional, but the animals still need her. A golden eagle is found stuck in road tar. A musk ox is overheated. A dairy goat has a bruised udder after a fight with another goat. And finally, Dr. Oakley must castrate a 300-pound yak and treat a lame horse who simply needs to go on a diet.
This week, Dr. Oakley's house calls consist of a string of scary visits that ultimately send two people to the hospital.
A baby boom has hit the Yukon Territory, and for Dr. Michelle Oakley that means helping a weak cow deliver an oversized calf, delivering puppies and treating a pregnant goat.

Dr. Oakley treats a sled dog with a face full of porcupine quills and a baby moose with life-threatening indigestion.
Dr. Oakley works around the clock to round up a pack of rogue horses, solve a miniature horse's medical mystery and give eight sled dog puppies their first exam.
In the Yukon, Dr. Oakley helps a young caribou with fast-growing, giant warts on his face and a mountain goat with a life-threateningly mangled foot.
In Alaska's backcountry, Dr. Oakley has to castrate a Himalayan yak, sedate a sick lynx and, unexpectedly, help a hairless cat with a dangerous injury.
