The Supervet At Christmas

The Supervet At Christmas



As the festive season approaches, Noel Fitzpatrick welcomes not the Three Wise Men but three poorly dogs into his practice. Worryingly there’s no guarantee that, even after surgery, crossbreed rescue puppy Tatiana will ever walk normally again. Labrador Luna also has serious mobility issues. An examination reveals problems with both her shoulder and elbow, an unusual and painful combination that requires dramatic intervention.

Lastly, Noel sees Peppa, a dalmatian described as a “dodgy dog” by her owners. Her condition (spinal cord damage complicated by a failed implant) is “a ticking time bomb”, according to Noel. For, I think, the first time he calls the family mid-op to ask permission to continue.


As the festive season approaches at Fitzpatrick Referrals, Professor Noel and his team treat three special patients. A one-year-old crossbreed puppy rescued by a charity from Romania is in need of complex surgery, with no guarantee of success. An eight-year-old Dalmatian needs work on its spinal cord, and a Labrador from Switzerland is having trouble walking. Noel's investigations reveal problems with both shoulder and elbow, an unusual combination that requires dramatic intervention.
