The Su­per­vet

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Shot last year at a vet clinic in Eash­ing, Sur­rey, Christ­mas in the Clinic de­picts some of the most dif­fi­cult cases to have walked, or been car­ried, through the door. Noel Fitz­patrick is an Ir­ish neuro-or­tho­pe­dic ve­teri­nary sur­geon who’s a “last re­sort” for many pets whose cir­cum­stances are life-threat­en­ing. In this spe­cial, he catches up with pa­tients who have ben­e­fited from his pi­o­neer­ing tech­niques and in­ven­tions. There’s Jasper, the puppy with de­formed legs, cat Pixie, who was hit by a car, and Scooby the labrador x that lost a leg to bone can­cer. It’s a tear-jerker, so be pre­pared, es­pe­cially when Fievel, a 16-mon­thold labrador that needed a dou­ble hip re­place­ments, turns out to have other prob­lems.
