Highland vets reveal life on the frontline in new documentary
Two Caithness veterinary clinics are giving viewers a glimpse into the highs and lows of work on the frontline in a new documentary.
Highland Vet features the dedicated team of vets, vet nurses and staff at DS McGregor and Partners practices in Wick and Thurso, where teams work round the clock to care for animals across the Far North.
The 12-part documentary, beginning tomorrow on 5 Select, follows in the footsteps of Channel 5’s hit show The Yorkshire Vet, now entering its 10th series.
Episode one of the new documentary features Caithness-born vet Shondie Maclean and her fight to save two-month-old Tamaskan puppy Leyla after a dog attack.
Joined by vet nurse Lee-Ann Mackay, they battle through the night to save the young pup after suffering a broken jaw and discovering wire in her stomach.
She reflects on the “most dramatic night of her career”.
