Next Episode of Heartland Docs, DVM is
In picturesque rural Nebraska, husband and wife veterinary team Drs. Ben and Erin Schroeder live and work at the center of America's food chain, where the livelihoods of Midwestern farmers connect to families nationwide. Along with their two sons, Charlie and Chase, the Schroeder family is always on the go as their veterinary practice cares for the region's many animals in need. From winter blizzards to spring tornadoes and blistering summer heat waves, Drs. Ben and Erin overcome the obstacles with skill and heart.
Early spring in Nebraska brings new life and unpredictable veterinary challenges.
Dr. Ben Schroeder and son Charlie are surprised when a young family brings in an orphaned raccoon they found in their shed, while Dr. Erin Schroeder helps a woman subdue a trapped cat with a serious dental issue. Ben and his younger son Chase also encounter a newborn calf with a hernia the size of a melon and perform surgery, while Erin tries to uncover why a terrier is suddenly experiencing violent seizures. The Schroeders also get a visit from a family of llamas, one of which is expecting, and the whole clan ventures into a massive thunderstorm to aid a downed dairy cow.
Ahead of the hometown rodeo, the Schroeders make sure the star animals are healthy and ready for the big show. However, that doesn't mean their other patients take a backseat. When he's not avoiding a charging bull, Ben bonds with his two sons while caring for an underdeveloped calf and a snake that won't eat, while Erin tends to a cat with a shocking leg injury.
While Drs. Ben and Erin Schroeder struggle to unravel the complicated issues ailing their patients, we see them live the credo – first, do no harm. Erin sees a beloved basset hound with issues that are more than meets the eye, while Ben has his patience tested by a young stallion. Ben performs an emergency cesarean section on a heifer and the whole family goes to great lengths to aid a newborn fawn, learning an important lesson in the process.
