This is my latest obsession. It’s a vet show but it’s not just your typical vet. It’s pretty special.
Dr. Pol is a country vet. That means he takes care of grumpy cows, bulls, sheep, goats and just about anything that the farmers keep. He has to keep himself from getting trampled by his patients who are, quite often, much larger than he is.
Dr.Pol also takes care of your usual cats and dogs, birds, lizards and other little creatures but the variety keeps coming. You never know what he’s going to deal with next.
Dr. Pol is also hilarious. He’s incredibly driven, always excited about getting to his next case and can’t seem to want to rest. He works into the night, all hours and all days. Because the farmers depend on him, he’s available 24/7. Talk about devotion. But he seems to absolutely love it.
I also love that he has such an incredible knowledge of just about every breathing creature on the planet. No matter what animal comes through his door, he knows how to take care of it. He seems to diagnose issues within minutes.
Also, he has ‘home remedies’ to keep those insane vet costs down for his clients. I find that incredibly kind. Farmers work so hard for a very slim profit and Dr. Pol knows that well. He tries as much as he can to keep those prices down for them.
He also has a quirky staff to help him including his son, Charles and his wife. They make a fantastic team and they’re so kind to those little animals.
If you do have a chance, check it out. It’s a definite feel-good show and it’s real. Certainly those animals do not act for the camera!
