Spring fever has hit for Dr. Pol and his staff at the veterinary clinic. A packed room of clients and animals wait patiently as Dr. Pol and Dr. Brenda make their way through their day of triple-booked appointments. Dr. Pol enjoys a busy work schedule and begins his day with an owner who has brought her miniature horse to the clinic. Despite everything the owner has done, the horse continues to lose weight and she decides to make the hour trip out to see Dr. Pol. What’s happening to this poor pony that’s causing him to lose weight? Dr. Pol is on the case.
Later that afternoon, another client brings his animal to see Dr. Pol—a heifer who looks sick and cannot stand. Based on her symptoms, he concludes she has shipping fever. As he continues the examination, Dr. Pol discovers she is also calving, and early. Dr. Pol and Charles quickly jump into action to help the heifer deliver her calf, and the owner watches anxiously to see whether the calf will be alive.
Dr. Brenda treks out in bad weather to see a cow that hasn’t been eating or digesting her food properly. She quickly finds her fourth stomach chamber has shifted out of place. Dr. Brenda calls in back up and with the help of several neighbors flips the cow on her back and tacks the stomach back into place. With the cow instantly relieved, she heads back out on the road to tackle more of what has come with this year’s spring fever.
