It now includes Tony's sons Dr. Ross and Dr. Ryan and technician assistant Cole, plus the extended clinic family and numerous pets, including Tony's beloved golden retriever and sidekick, Lord Barrington.

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.
Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine opens its doors, allowing viewers exclusive access to follow first-year students mastering the basics, and fourth-year students handling difficult cases from hamsters to horses.

Then it's on to tasks like restraining animals, repairing fractures, inserting pacemakers, and removing abscesses, before the chaos of emergency room procedures are introduced.

The owner of Pegasus Veterinary Clinic, located in his Kilauea home, Dr. Sims and assistants Dia and Ella keep busy treating a wide variety of domestic and wild animals. He makes "house" calls, too -- on beaches and mountainsides, in the water and jungle -- traversing wild, rural and oceanic Kauai topography. "Aloha Vet" profiles a man whose phone is rarely silent. With a heart of gold, Dr. Sims works long hours helping animals that walk, crawl, fly and swim.
Making house calls in the far reaches of Northern Canada is a daunting task in the least, considering the houses may be separated by hundreds of miles. That challenge doesn't stop Dr. Michelle Oakley from performing her many duties as a veterinarian in one of the most rugged environments on Earth.

She also makes house calls, sometimes driving for long stretches through desolate wilderness to check on a patient. This series documents how Dr. Oakley juggles being a full-time vet, wife and mom, and does so with a sense of humor and devotion.
