The Bionic Vet Full Episode Guide

  • Dr. Noel Fitzpatrick must attempt a rare, do-or-die operation that has only been carried out twice. Ianto, a 9-year-old Corgi, has an infected cancerous growth eating away at his foot, and the only way to save him is to amputate. Enter the O.R. and witness the groundbreaking procedure as vets replace his foot with a custom-made prosthetic. Then meet the next patient, a stray Jack Russell terrier whose need of treatment for a dislocated elbow is overshadowed by his need of a permanent home.

  • It will take every tool at the vet's disposal to rebuild and rehab a returning patient and save a cat maimed by a car. To fix cross border collie Sasha's blown disk, Bionic vet Noel Fitzpatrick must engineer a specially designed bolt to insert into her spine. The procedure involves pins, cement and a high-powered drill. Lottie the cat's shattered pelvis requires an equally complex, and very expensive surgery. Insurance will only cover so much, but for Lottie, no surgery could mean certain death.
