Series 10




A new run of Channel 4’s highly popular series The Supervet kicks off this week with a dramatic emergency when two-year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Lulu is rushed into Fitzpatrick Referrals late at night after being hit by a car travelling at 40mph.  The huge impact has shattered her pelvis into over 25 pieces.  Her devastated family, including twelve-year old Jack must decide whether to proceed with surgery.  Professor Noel Fitzpatrick warns the family that the extent of the damage means he won’t be able to fully reconstruct Lulu’s exploded joint.
