      Dr. Noel Fitzgerald must attempt a rare, do-or-die operation that has only been carried out twice. Ianto, a 9-year-old Corgi, has an infected cancerous growth eating away at his foot, and the only way to save him is to amputate. Enter the O.R. and witness the groundbreaking procedure as vets replace his foot with a custom-made prosthetic. Then meet the next patient, a stray Jack Russell terrier whose need of treatment for a dislocated elbow is overshadowed by his need of a permanent home.moreless

      Episode 4
      Dr. Noel Fitzgerald has had remarkable success mending animals no other vet can heal. But even with his revolutionary techniques, there are some animals even he cannot cure. Join the Bionic Vet and his staff as they tend to a puppy whose leg is broken in over 20 places after being trampled by a horse. The bones are in tiny pieces, but it’s the microscopic bacteria from the horse’s hooves that are the biggest concern. Also visiting is Lottie, a cat with a fixed pelvis, who’s about to take her first (reluctant) dip into the center’s hydrotherapy pool.moreless

      It will take every tool at the vet’s disposal to rebuild and rehab a returning patient and save a cat maimed by a car. To fix cross border collie Sasha’s blown disk, Bionic vet Noel Fitzgerald must engineer a specially designed bolt to insert into her spine. The procedure involves pins, cement and a high-powered drill. Lottie the cat’s shattered pelvis requires an equally complex, and very expensive surgery.
