It's a day of firsts at the clinic — Dr. Pol performs his first-ever guinea pig castration and Dr. Brenda saves the life of a 1-day-old calf with a dislocated hip. Then, it's off to the rescue of 11 tiny piglets that are starving to death. An infection is preventing their mother from nursing properly.
