We re-visit Dr. Pol on the farm as he goes to take blood samples from a flock of sheep in order to test for OPP: Ovine Progressive Pneumonia, a progressive disease that is incurable and highly contagious. But it's not as easy as it sounds, Dr. Pol and Charles have to wrestle the sheep before they can get the samples.
