Fighting an impossibly short mining season and with their savings on the line, they work against difficulties to dig the precious ore out of the ground.

"Have vet, will travel" isn't printed on his business cards, but it succinctly describes Dr. Bartholomew Buckeye Bottoms' dedication to serving hundreds of clients across Hawaii who depend on his mobile veterinarian practice. Since 2007, Dr. Bottoms has delivered life-saving treatment to sick animals large and small on the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai, Oahu, the Big Island, and Kauai.

Buckeye, by the way, is the son of actor Timothy Bottoms.
In the varied forms of veterinary medicine, Dr. Susan Kelleher's practice may be one of the more unusual. Known as Dr. K, she runs South Florida's Broward Avian and Exotics Animal Hospital, and this series follows the staff as it cares for rabbits, ferrets, foxes, fish, birds, reptiles, marsupials, and even primates. As do some other vets, Kelleher thinks domesticating wild animals like monkeys is a bad idea, but that feeling doesn't interfere with her taking care of them: "If it will fit through the door, I'll treat it," she says.
