Mountain Vets

Series 1 - Episode 1



The work of nine mountain vets, several nurses and stable hands in three very different veterinary practices located within the ancient Kingdom of Mourne, Northern Ireland, as they care for a diverse range of animals in clinics, on farms and smallholdings. The Mourne area is well known for its stunning natural beauty and traditional country life, and the trio of practices respond to over 100 clinic cases and call-outs a day. In this episode, the founder of the oldest vet practice in Downpatrick, Maurice King, receives a call about an extraordinarily rare birth on a farm he knows well.
