The Supervet returns to Channel 4 for the eight series following Professor Noel Fitzpatrick and his team at Fitzpatrick Referrals
In tonight’s episode Professor Noel Fitzpatrick pulls out all the stops to give a rescue West Highland puppy a new lease of life. Rodney was born without back feet and with only a thin layer of skin around the stumps he is at constant risk of infection. Foster mum Kelly hopes two bionic feet will give Rodney the chance at a normal life on four paws, but it is risky surgery; if it does not all go to plan, Rodney’s future is uncertain.
Nell, a young Husky Collie is brought to the practice with a badly damaged pelvis after being hit by a car. Nell is in chronic pain and needs a total hip replacement. The operation goes well but days after the difficult surgery they suffer a huge setback and with limited options, Noel has to come up with a different plan quickly.
Lesley brings in her lazy Dachshund Rollo, who has deformed front legs. He needs double surgery along with extensive physiotherapy; but trying to motivate Rollo to do exercise proves a challenge!
