Next Episode of Vets: Gach Creutair Beo is
From Stirling to Wick, this series follows vets tending to small, large and very wild animals.
In this programme, Colin Scott at Blair Drummond Safari Park treats monkeys from Gibraltar, and in Wick, Iain Maclean performs a Caesarian on a cow in the middle of the night.
In this programme, we follow equine vet Graham Hunter at Ardene House near Aberdeen as he carries out an endoscopy on one horse and removes a tooth from another - a task that takes a few hours and a lot of patience. At Highland Wildlife Park, vet Jane Harley rasps a kiang horse's teeth and trims a markhor's feet. She also wants to take some blood samples from a female bison, but it's quite a challenge for the team as the herd roams freely round the reserve, and they need to guard from the protective and fearsome bull. Meanwhile, at Vets Now near Aberdeen, vet David Mackenzie has to deal with a kitten with its head completely stuck in a tin can - a first in all his years of practice!
In this programme, two young vets in Wick, Kiri Harvey and Pete Cameron are kept busy with lambing and calving, and have some difficult decisions to make. A sheep heavy with triplets comes in and it's a race against time to see if the lambs can be born alive. At Ardene House near Aberdeen, visiting vet Fergus Coutts is a pain specialist who uses acupuncture and hydrotherapy to treat a German Shepherd dog. And at Vets Now, a cat with an abscess on his head is admitted as an emergency case for vet David Mackenzie to treat.
In this programme, the Wildlife Rescue Centre near Alloa is exceptionally busy in spring, when many newborns are orphaned or injured, and the dedicated staff often take them home to feed them through the night. Vet Romain Pizzi checks out a day-old rabbit with a broken leg, a fox cub that is not eating and an orphaned red squirrel that is being hand-fed. At Ardene House near Aberdeen, vet Ann Wortley gets out her power tools as she operates on a dog's knee to cure his lameness. And in Wick, vet Kiri Harvey is checking out Jock, a very cute 9-week-old kitten that has a suspected broken leg.
In this programme, Walker the polar bear at Highland Wildlife Park near Kingussie gets a visit from the dentist. A team of specialist vets gathers to join local vet Jane Harley and create a temporary operating theatre in Walker's enclosure so that they can carry out their procedures. It's a race against time to get the work done. At Albavet in Dunfermline, eye specialist vet Vikki Halliday performs delicate surgery on a cat's eye, and at Dick Vet School at Edinburgh University, the exotics department has a varied assortment of animals to treat.
In this programme, orthopedic specialist vet Richard Coe is at the Vets Now hospital in Glasgow operating on a young spaniel who has come in with a broken leg. Richard performs surgery to insert a metal plate which binds the two parts of the bone together. At Blair Drummond Safari Park, we follow vet Colin Scott doing his rounds as he checks on the animals, from chimpanzees to penguins and the macaque monkeys, and he finishes his day at the birds of prey show. Meanwhile, in Vatersay, crofters are preparing their cattle for the sales with help from vet David Buckland, who has come across from Barra for the day.
In this programme we meet vet Pamela Martin, who is a cancer specialist at the Vets Now hospital in Glasgow, where a dog has come in with a tumour on his foot. Pamela calls on Dr Liz Welsh, a soft tissue specialist at the hospital, to carry out the surgery. In Wick, vet Iain Maclean does dental work on a sheepdog, but this patient is very familiar to him - it's his own dog! We meet David Mackenzie in the out-of-hours service and also in practice in Dunfermline, where he is a cardiology specialist. While we are there we meet vet Graham Dodds who, as well as working in general practice, also has an unusual specialism - hens!
In this programme, it's a big day for the crofters in Borve in the Isle of Barra as they have gathered together for a visit from vet David Buckland, who has travelled from Uist to prepare their cattle for the sales in Lochboisdale in a few weeks time. At Dick Vet School in Edinburgh, dermatology vet specialist Tim Nuttall uses cutting-edge laser surgery to remove tumours from a dog's mouth. And during the out-of-hours emergency service near Aberdeen, vet David Mackenzie sees a dog that has come in with a sore foot. His owners fear that he stood on broken glass.
In this programme, Saskia is a seriously ill cat who needs a blood transfusion. Vets David Mackenzie and Scott Kilpatrick need to see if her brother or sister are suitable donors, and it's a race against time as Saskia's condition deteriorates. At the Highland Wildlife Park, vet Jane Harley has to trim the markhors' hooves, but catching them is no easy task. The keepers try a new tactic this time, but will it work? And in Caithness, Kay keeps sheep and pigs as pets, but today it is Holly the pig who needs treatment from vet Kiri Harvey. Unlike the other pets Holly lives in Kay's house, and she is very grumpy when Kiri appears.
In this programme, the students at Dick Vet School do consultations under the watchful eye of vet David Perpinan. Today they have two ducks and a tortoise to examine, but David never knows what's ahead. A bird's nest with three chicks inside has fallen from the roof of the building, and an injured baby deer is brought in. In Caithness, vet Iain Maclean spends the day visiting farms and treats two cows that are in difficulty. And at Vets Now out-of-hours service near Aberdeen, vet David Mackenzie performs a series of blood tests on a poorly cat to try to find out what is wrong.
