The Pols are experiencing some unusual emergencies and the only explanation they can think of is the full moon. Dr. Pol and Charles head to a cattle farm to perform pregnancy checks. For the first time ever, all the cows they examine are pregnant! Back at the clinic, an X-ray of a dog hit by a motorcycle shows bruising, but no broken bones. Luckily, the dog is able to leave that day. Then Dr. Pol heads to treat a pig with a rectal prolapse - a dose of antibiotics will help alleviate discomfort.
