Tonight Fitzpatrick helps six-year-old shih-tzu Lucky who is suffering from severe arthritis and can barely walk.
Noel has undertaken remarkable operations to fix broken bones before and he continues this streak when two-year-old Labrador, Bongo, who has osteoarthritis in all four legs needs an operation to fuse the ankles on his hind legs.
Also in this episode, we meet Mason, a four-month-old German Shepherd, who has a genetic disease called osteochondritis dissecans where the cartilage in some joints doesn’t develop and often doesn’t turn into bone. It will require all Noel’s surgical skills to perform the repair.
