My wife and I recently found The Bionic Vet on Netflix. The Bionic Vet is a six episode documentary series that follows some of the extraordinary cases of veterinary medicine done by Noel Fitzpatrick in his Surrey, England practice. The show only ran one season but after a quick Google search we found The Supervet, a new show with the exact same premise. The Supervet has been running for 4 series and is still being made. Unlike The bionic Vet, which only featured Noel, the Supervet follows Noel and all of the vets that work at his practice, Fitzpatrick Referrals. The things they do to save animals is both beautiful and graphic. Have you seen either show? What did you think?
We love this show! We also are heavily involved in animal rescue. We are on the board for a local animal rescue society, and we foster constantly - we currently have three kittens in our care but we've had as many as 15 foster animals at any given time. So The Supervet is right up our alley. We've been watching an episode or two per night. the seasons are pretty short so we'll have seen them all soon. The stuff Fitzpatrick Referrals can do are insane and awesome. It's incredible and awesome to watch.
I just love this man - he is the kindest vet I have ever seen and shows SUCH empathy for his human, as well as animal patients.
Last night he lost a little dog after a delicate operation and he was actually crying and said "I have nothing to say". When he had to phone the owner, he was so - I do not know the word for it but he is such a caring person, I wish I had him as a vet. Then again, as he does large, delicate operations I do not wish that on my two whippets!
