– Radio Times
Channel 4 returns to veterinary hospital Fitzpatrick Referrals, for another extraordinary series of the highly acclaimed Supervet, following renowned surgeon and ‘Bionic Vet’, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick and his team of over 150 surgeons, nurses, ward attendants, hydro-therapists and physiotherapists as they help some of the nation’s hardest-to-cure pets with innovative treatment and operations.
At his state-of-the-art practice in Surrey, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick is introducing new surgical techniques from bionic legs to endo-skeletons which allow dogs with broken backs to walk again and cats who’ve been run over to thrive once more. At the heart of everything he does is the desire to maintain what he calls ‘the bond of love between humans and animals’.
In this new series we’ll experience yet more highs and lows as his team do everything they can to save our pets, along the way devising and inventing more astonishing procedures and surgeries.
Fixed rig cameras in the practice’s waiting room and behind the scenes capture the raw emotion, and the drama of Noel and his staff as they treat the animals in their care. Added to this are the amazing scenes in the operating theatre, and powerful interviews that candidly reveal the sentiment, pathos and humour of these stories.
The Supervet continues to tell the stories that explore how much our animals mean to us.
