He makes house calls to care for the sick or wounded animals, which is a dying business. He specializes in cows, pigs, horses, sheep, and goats (just to name a few). He was shown the ropes by his father when he was just a little boy on how to take care of and fix hurt or sick animals. His father was a big influence on why he went to college and why his career was geared towards veterinarian work. His big heart and love for animals makes him a very popular person in Michigan. Honesty is the key in this business, animals are his life. When owners are having animal problems, Dr. Jan Pol is the go to guy. Dr. Pol wants the animals to get well so that the owners can continue making money from the animals and crops. Animals are everything to a farmer. If you don't have enough animals to get the job done, then the farmers would have a hard time putting food on their own table. farmers work on time lines, and when an animal is down, it halts the production process, which in turn hurts business. This documentary give the viewers at home an up close, in depth, and personal look inside the good and the bad, the hard work involved, and the pay off at the end, which is a fully healthy, recovering animal.
