A black and white cow waits for a herd health check from Dr. Pol.

Check your local listings.

With more than 19,000 clients, Dr. Pol is stretched to the limit. To keep up with calls, he adds Dr. Sandra to the staff. A farm girl at heart with lots of large animal experience, Dr. Sandra treats a downed horse with lesions that make it nearly impossible to stand and nurse her colt. Elsewhere, Dr. Brenda is called to treat a bloated cow in critical condition. Without treatment the cow will die, but with one simple procedure, she miraculously has him off the ground and eating in minutes.
