Season 11 / Episode 1 and airs on 28 February 2018 20:00
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 four-part series follows Noel and his team as they use their pioneering techniques to attempt to cure pets that might otherwise be beyond saving.
A new run of episodes starts with a dramatic emergency when a Staffordshire bull terrier called Lulu is hit by a car and her pelvis is smashed in more than 25 pieces. Professor Noel Fitzpatrick's only option is to pin the larger pieces back together in an operation that will require all his expertise. A giant schnauzer called Florence has lost her tail wag with a sore knee. And a pointy-eared Jack Russell called Muffin has a mysterious problem with her back legs.
A border collie called Buzz is referred to Fitzpatrick's with a suspicious lump on his ankle. Noel can see Buzz is in a lot of pain. His recovery does not go to plan and proves extremely challenging. A short-haired cat arrives with a sore hip from jumping off the sofa. Is a hip replacement the best option? And a Golden Labrador is rushed into Fitzpatrick's sister clinic, the Fitzpatrick Referrals Oncology and Soft Tissue centre in Guildford, with a lump growing on her side.
A two-year old mastiff is diagnosed with a bone tumour in her leg. Noel suggests she may be a suitable candidate for his pioneering endoprosthesis surgery. But six weeks later she's back, suffering pain in her foot. Noel has to loosen her toes. A tiny pug has lost control of her hind legs and faces the prospect of euthanasia. But neurologist Colin Driver hopes that spinal surgery may give hope. And a Rhodesian Ridgeback comes to surgery suffering from lameness. Surgery may be required, but Noel and the owners are concerned about putting the dog through this option. Together they must decide on the right thing to do.
A two-year old Bengal cat is rushed along to Fitzpatrick Referrals after being hit by a car. Milo has a broken back and a dislocated spine. Noel agrees to do what he can, but on the proviso that he may have to put Milo to sleep. A German Shepherd requires a total elbow replacement, with a difficult surgery using a custom printed implant system. A rottweiler puppy called Mauser has a genetic condition which has destroyed the cartilage on his main ankle bone. Noel comes up with a solution involving a mesh seeded with stem cells.
