He’ll witness first-hand the diverse array of troubles our beloved animals face and by following the work of the nurses, vets and consultants he’ll experience the front line of pioneering pet care this astonishing hospital has to offer.
John will also be attempting to understand the increasing problem of pet behaviour. What can be done and who best to call when a pets behaviour has lurched from naughty to downright dreadful? Who do you call when the family pet is making the family home unhappy?

We’ll be with them every step of the way. Expect tears, stress, joy and sheer relief (and that’s just from John!).
