The nation’s favourite vet returns for another season of compelling and complex canine and feline challenges.
In this episode, Merida, a six-month-old collie, appears to have a developmental deformity where the bones in her elbows don’t fit together. But after CT scans, Noel sees that the situation is even more complex.
Meanwhile, Burmese mountain dog Brodie (pictured) has a painful bulging disc. Noel hopes removing the disc bulge and replacing it with a bespoke titanium spacer screw will help. And boss cat Elmo has a complex fracture to his left back leg after being hit by a car. Although the bone has exploded into fragments it should be possible to salvage the limb with complex surgery involving metal implants.
The Supervet – Noel Fitzpatrick – Thursday at 8.00pm on Channel 4.
