Blood tests confirm Scott's suspicion that Bam Bam is diabetic. The terrier is in a critical condition and needs immediate treatment if he is to survive. Bam Bam is placed on a drip for several days to try to bring him back from the brink.
In the sixth episode, Edwin the cat has severe breathing problems. Scott's initial diagnosis is feline asthma but he wants to take some X-rays and do tests to confirm the condition.

Scott is called out to treat Honey, a two-year-old Shar Pei that's been abandoned.
