For Dr. Pol, Animals Always Come First

Learning to keep up with Dr. Pol has always been a challenge for the crew, and one that has taken a few seasons to learn to do properly. He walks fast, drives fast, and he’s always on the move. And with his veterinary business as his absolute first priority, he doesn’t like to stop for anybody- not even during filming.

Luckily, the crew has adapted to Dr. Pol’s nonstop nature, and have become a well-oiled machine able to keep pace and catch him at his best.

Check out this behind-the-scenes look at keeping up with the Doc:

Saturday at 9P on Dr. Pol, Spring Fever, spring is blooming as the animals begin to run wild. First on the doctor’s list is mini-horse, Mateo, whose hormones have kicked in, making him go wild for the mares. The solution is to castrate Mateo to lessen the testosterone, but this turns out to be no ordinary castration. Then, Jezebel the cow is in distress and unable to birth her calf. Dr. Pol and Charles discover that she has milk fever and if not treated quickly enough, could slip into a coma, causing her and her calf to die.

    I so love the Pol family and their endeavors and success in the veterinary world, and especially love to see their son Charles, who is so sensitive and kind and strong, yet, not so educated in doing what his father, a vet, does…A wonderful series. Enjoy it so much.
