Taking life-saving care to a whole new level, Fitzpatrick Referrals is the last-chance saloon for Britain's most sick and injured pets.

With two hundred new cases every month, from rabbits with broken legs to dogs with cancer, Fitzpatrick Referrals is one of the biggest and best veterinary hospitals in the world. Every animal emergency has a deeply human subtext. 

Charismatic and witty surgeon Noel Fitzpatrick leads a team of 100 nurses, physiotherapists and hydro-therapists. With multiple operating theatres, a rehabilitation pool and a radiology department, the level of care would satisfy human patients. 

Supervet follows Noel and his team over several months. From French bulldogs being taught to walk again to a dog being given wolverine-style metal rods in its leg, this series is full of the most unusual veterinary cases and plenty of joyful owners who'd been told to give up hope.

BBC Earth is on Starhub Channel 407.
