This season, audiences continue to follow the daily lives of the passionate, lovable vets at their Cy-Fair animal hospital in Houston as they encounter fascinating animal cases each and every day. And the adventures grow this season as the doctors open a second animal clinic in the Houston area.
In previous seasons, the doctors have examined a feisty rescued tiger found roaming a neighborhood in Houston, removed a massive tumor from Red the Golden Retriever’s head and performed emergency C-Sections on multiple pregnant dogs. The dedicated vets jumped into action when Hurricane Harvey devastated their community by saving puppies found in the middle of floodwater, treating a family goat named Jetta on the brink of death, and operating on Jasper the cat about to lose his leg – all while dealing with family and staff that suffered from the storm and lost their homes.
With a thriving clinic, their personal lives are booming too. Dr. Blue and his wife Jessica prepare for the arrival of their third child, Dr. Ross and wife Tauvia introduce their new baby girl, while Dr. Lavinge and his wife Anne settle into their new home and prepare for “Empty Nest Syndrome” just a few years away.
