The Supervet Full Episode Guide

  • Noel Fitzpatrick tries to save a tortoiseshell cat's leg by cutting out a tumour that has developed and replacing its knee with a unique bionic implant. Tibetan terrier Beau needs surgery for hip dysplasia. Staffordshire bull terrier Rosie is admitted as an emergency after her back legs suddenly collapse in the park, and Noel performs essential spinal surgery to the diseased discs in Rosie's spine and advises a course of intense physiotherapy.

  • An overweight boxer needs an operation on his knees, but first Noel and the team must fix his breathing defect - a common problem with flat face breeds. Elsewhere, a pug requires risky emergency spinal surgery to remove a cyst and a rescue dog with hip dysplasia may have to be let go while under anaesthetic.

  • A two-year old Bengal cat is rushed along to Fitzpatrick Referrals after being hit by a car. Milo has a broken back and a dislocated spine. Noel agrees to do what he can, but on the proviso that he may have to put Milo to sleep. A German Shepherd requires a total elbow replacement, with a difficult surgery using a custom printed implant system. A rottweiler puppy called Mauser has a genetic condition which has destroyed the cartilage on his main ankle bone. Noel comes up with a solution involving a mesh seeded with stem cells.

  • Baloo the Great Dane comes to the clinic needing an operation on its spine, but when Noel Fitzpatrick discovers the dog has laryngeal paralysis, the prospect of surgery suddenly becomes much more complicated. There are also two Labradors in for treatment. Lola needs a knee replacement, while Piper has a leg tumour that may require amputation. But there may be bad news.

  • Documentary following the work of pioneering veterinary practice Fitzpatrick Referrals in Surrey, where veterinary surgeon Noel Fitzpatrick and his team help difficult-to-cure pets. Noel treats a Labrador (Drummer) suffering with severe arthritis in its elbow, and suggests using stem cells to help with the inflammation, while one of the team's senior neurologists deals with a Chihuahua (Arlo) born with fluid on the brain. Plus, a man comes all the way from France with his Labrador cross (Sooty), which requires high-end surgery for elbow dysplasia.

  • Noel Fitzpatrick treats a six-year-old shih-tzu (Lucky) which can barely walk due to the severe arthritis in its hip and a family Labrador (Bongo) suffering osteoarthritis in all four legs, which is brought in to fuse the ankles on its hind legs. He also helps a four-month-old German shepherd (Mason) with a genetic disease affecting its joints - but the test results are worse than the professor feared and It will require all his surgical skills to repair.

  • A two-year old mastiff is diagnosed with a bone tumour in her leg. Noel suggests she may be a suitable candidate for his pioneering endoprosthesis surgery. But six weeks later she's back, suffering pain in her foot. Noel has to loosen her toes. A tiny pug has lost control of her hind legs and faces the prospect of euthanasia. But neurologist Colin Driver hopes that spinal surgery may give hope. And a Rhodesian Ridgeback comes to surgery suffering from lameness. Surgery may be required, but Noel and the owners are concerned about putting the dog through this option. Together they must decide on the right thing to do.

  • Basset hound Barney is `top dog' at home, enjoying salmon and venison as some of his favourite treats. But lately Barney's vertebrae have been causing him problems and Noel Fitzpatrick needs to perform high-risk surgery using 3D-printed implants. The professor also treats a giant mastiff called Tank, who is suffering from severe arthritis and needs radical surgery on both elbows, and a family puppy who has fractured his foot jumping off a bed. Now he requires specially developed surgical treatment.

  • A new run of episodes starts with a dramatic emergency when a Staffordshire bull terrier called Lulu is hit by a car and her pelvis is smashed in more than 25 pieces. Professor Noel Fitzpatrick's only option is to pin the larger pieces back together in an operation that will require all his expertise. A giant schnauzer called Florence has lost her tail wag with a sore knee. And a pointy-eared Jack Russell called Muffin has a mysterious problem with her back legs.
