Next Episode of The Supervet: Noel Fitzpatrick is
Noel Fitzpatrick runs one of the most advanced veterinary practices in Britain and is known as the Bionic Vet. Some of the hardest-to-cure pets from across the country receive cutting-edge treatments and surgery here, from a team of over a hundred surgeons, nurses, ward attendants and physiotherapists. This series follows Noel and his team as they use their pioneering techniques to attempt to cure pets that might otherwise be beyond saving.
A French bulldog is brought in after collapsing and struggling to move, and after a full medical assessment, Noel realises an exploded disc in the dog's neck is pressuring its spine to such an extent it is slowly causing paralysis. The vet also treats an excitable Staffordshire bull terrier suffering from a problem where the bones in its elbows do not fit properly and a cat that has been shot with an airgun.
Noel treats 15-stone English mastiff Bear, who has a ruptured ligament in his knee - but as the dog goes into theatre, a major team effort is needed to get this massive patient through surgery. Siamese cat Bluebell is rushed in after being hit by a car and golden retriever Henry is suffering from a chronically damaged spinal disc
The pioneering vet treats a 10-year-old beagle unable to stand on its back legs, and when a scan reveals the canine has two diseased discs between three of its neck vertebrae, he operates to fuse the bones. He also fits a bionic knee in an 11-year-old labrador with bone cancer in its leg, and treats a bulldog puppy that has been run over by a car.
A two-year-old dachshund is rushed to Fitzpatricks by a distraught friend of the owner after being run over by a driver and sustaining life-threatening injuries. A couple arrive with their nine-year-old schnauzer, which is booked in for complex spinal surgery after an earlier operation on its knee, and the owners of a shih tzu bring in their pet, which has been injured in an accident at home.
