About the show

The Supervet is a TV show which started in 2014 on Channel 4 in the UK and has run for ten series.

The hour long programme follows the passionate orthopaedic neurosurgeon Professor Noel Fitzpatrick as he leads a team of over 200 vets, nurses, and physiotherapists to provide hope, often against all the odds, for animals who are inseparable members of the families that come to see him.
Fitzpatrick Referrals is often the last-chance saloon for Britain’s most sick and injured pets. As one of the biggest and most advanced veterinary hospitals in the world, Fitzpatrick Referrals takes on more than two hundred new cases every month, from limb salvage for dogs to hip replacements for cats. Every story charts the deeply relevant journey of unconditional love between a family and their animal friend and the twists of fate of their darkest and brightest hours.
Taking life-saving treatments and heartfelt compassion to a whole new level, these programmes feature some of the most complex veterinary challenges ever seen, with some techniques and implants not available anywhere else in the world. The Supervet captures the raw emotion, drama and joyfulness of Professor Noel Fitzpatrick and his staff as they find extraordinary and innovative solutions to save life and limb, bringing hope and peace to the families who in many cases had been told their pets were beyond saving.

If you believe you have a special circumstance, please submit your query in the usual way and we will come back to you in due course.

Professor Noel Fitzpatrick receives many requests from organisations wishing for his help and unfortunately he is unable to help them all. Due to his clinical commitments his time is very limited, and any spare time he has is spent working with the charity he has founded, The Humanimal Trust.

Fitzpatrick Referrals does not take cases just because they might be suitable for the show – as with all patients they must go through the referral process. Please visit Fitzpatrick Referrals for more information.
