Being a vet is tough and messy as the six youngsters in this new series discover when they enrol at Edinburgh’s hi-tech vet school. The reality involves putting micro-cameras up a horse’s nostril, neutering a male raccoon and x-raying a dog’s paw. The kids aren’t all mad keen to become vets but they all acquit themselves well under challenging circumstances.
