Dr. Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet is ready for a new season and new episodes of the reality series about a veteran veterinarian will begin airing later this week.
Animal Planet revealed more about the return of the series and the season premiere in a press release.
Denver’s most passionate veterinarian, Dr. Jeff Young, returns for a new season of Animal Planet’s DR. JEFF: ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET, with new cases to solve and new clients to treat. After 30 years in his field, Dr. Jeff still hasn’t seen it all – with the clinic’s continuous flow of mysterious pet ailments, severe injuries and accidents, every day brings a fresh and exciting challenge. Dr. Jeff and his team carry on doing all they can to help every animal in need. The all-new season of DR. JEFF: ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET premieres Saturday, Sept. 26 at 9 PM ET/PT.
In the premiere episode, Dr. Jeff performs a procedure he’s never attempted – a complicated lung surgery on a beloved dog named Leyla. Dr. Amy treats Sookie, a husky who lost a fight with a porcupine, and paid the price with a snout-full of quills. Audiences also meet Callie and Steve, two abandoned turtles, as Dr. Baier works to turn their health around. And Dr. Jeff saves Ozzy, an 18-year-old dog whose family moved away, but left their senior pet behind.
Other stories this season include Dr. Jeff and the team providing free care to a group of loveable Fainting Goats destined to become therapy animals; becoming a dog’s last hope after he jumps from a moving car on the highway; and coming to the aid of pet owners in a remote jungle village in Panama with a free spay and neuter clinic. Later this season, Dr. Jeff looks back on his 30-year ride as a vet, and the challenging decision to set up a low-cost, high-volume veterinary practice, where no two days are the same, and a sudden emergency can push the team to its limits.
