Junior Vets

Series 1 - Episode 1



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.


Children learn the skills needed to help injured animals and sick pets and compete to be named Head Vet, beginning by testing a horse for a life-threatening illness and carrying out delicate surgery on a racoon.
