Professor Noel Fitzpatrick encounters complex cases every day, and does his best to be the hero his animals require. In this episode Andy and Petra bring their 13-month-old cocker spaniel puppy for scheduled surgery for hip dysplasia, requiring two separate hip replacements.

Mum Sarah rushes in two-year-old cat Jazz after being hit by a car; some of Sarah’s four children have special needs, and Jazz is like a companion to them.

Laura arrives with eight-year old dachshund Olive, who has a slipped disc in her spine; the clock is ticking as she goes to surgery, but doctor Fitzpatrick knows the importance of getting Olive in early.
