Veterinarian your sense of smell becomes more enhanced right so you can walk in the door you can walk anywhere around you like need to check those cages yep cuz you know somebody has gone somewhere we become The Connoisseur of manure that’s who we are

You a got to put on the ledge man yes ofur I don’t know if that’s a good title to have went to school a long time for that right she’s very cuur something’s running a foul with two temperamental turkeys this morning hey hey what’s

Going on how are you I’m good hey who we got here that’s Ralph Ralph and this is Penny Ralph and Penny hey Ralph how are you so they have had really loose stools recently hey what’s going on cool ah you a n huh Ralph and Penny

They’re my babies I love them so how do you like raising turkeys I love it they’re so cool too they’re like dogs this would be your biting dog yeah he’s the guard dog he’s the guard dog she is so sweet she’s gorgeous gorgeous just because they’re a turkey it doesn’t

Mean that they’re any less important than a dog or a cat they all have personalities and emotions and they’re just a great great pet just think about that is a face looking at you I don’t know about that what do they usually eat they’ve been eating the all game Feed pellets

They’ve been eating pretty good they have he’s nice and mused up that looks good hey so how many told total turkeys do you have uh 10 10 counting these two all right we got some fresh poop in behind you dck some fresh poop mhm it’s a nice s oh sorry no

You’re fine get some in the clean I’ll be right back di definitely can be quite serious in a turkey Aven species they got to stay hydrated if they don’t get hydrated the organs start to shut down and it can be a really really bad thing the raing penny their color looks good

Their chest sounds fine but they has some pretty yellow discolored diarhea so I’m pretty concerned right now we are running feal and examining to see exactly if we have any parasites or if there’s something else going on all right we got some answers okay we got

Whipworms and we also have coxidia oh no yeah coxidia can go through the whole flock so that is what is going on I’m glad you brought him in yeah I’m glad I brought them in too whw worm is a type of worm that hooks up in the intestine

And it just sucks blood until the animal becomes anemic gets dehydrated and die coxidia on the other hand is a type of protoo but it also is very Insidious and equally can kill these F so we got to get this fixed and fixed fast all right dog you want Mr Ralph or Penny

Ralph all right we’ll go ahead and give these guys their first dose of this city of medicine yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum he acts like it tastes it yeah he didn’t Peck you I need to give these guys on some antiprotozoal medicines as well as some

Deworming I’m also going to send enough home for the whole flock cuz there is a good chance that if Raph and Penny have Cox cidia and whipworms the whole flock has Cox CID and wh worm that tastes good huh you want to take my you can’t take the whole

Sering can you let mying go thank you so you think they’ll be okay I think they should be fine okay good now that we found out the C she can take care of the flock at home I’m feel pretty good about their prognosis well thank you so much

No problem so we got in control we’re going to get you labels on this and you’ll be good to okay thank you all right Dr Hodes he’s just so awesome that and I’m so thankful brought him in today because it could be really bad if I didn’t treat

Them you ready to go home huh you see all them serges up there nah got to get two today I got one up there you got some work to do Chi what’s going on baby today I brought in chuji my female pug because she’s pregnant I just like to have Dr Hodges give her a look over when she’s getting close to her due date and make sure that there’s nothing in there that I don’t

Know hey hey how are you what’s up girl how you been good all right I kind had to come in so I know I ain’t seen in a little while but that’s all good she’s just snorer than she usually SN extra weight I guess okay well let’s go check her out

Give me one second let’s go shoot the X-ray cha the Pug is in for a pregnancy exam today she’s right at the end of her due date yeah bab everything we do a x-ray just to see what position these pups are in I can also see exactly how big these

Pups are it also helps me count the number of pups how’s it looking dog wooo we got some big puppies follow the heads one head two heads three heads foreheads these are some larger puppies for a mom the size I’m a little worried to be honest all right I’ll bring Mom in

I see four pug puppies which are pretty big compared to chuji size so it really concerns me if these puppets can’t fit through the pelvic Canal then I got to do a C-section with Mom on anesthesia you have the puppies on anesthesia with the C-section this definitely involves

More risk so you got some pretty big babies Oh wow how many it was like four okay last time she delivered six I don’t want to do cerian unless unless we have to correct right okay but we might she had them last time she she’s had two letters she delivered three are you

Willing to like wait and see I think so I said let’s see if Mother Nature take care let’s see if you can have these babies normally and we’ll just take a pict of the babies when they come out yay puppy Chui will be a mom real soon those puppies look really really healthy

They’re big so Mom is on notice to keep a watch eye on it she just kind of a smaller dog we have to come in and do an emergency c section we’ll get it taken care of pupp dog hopefully next time I see you you going to be a mama thank you

So much see thank you thank you all right I pu it up these puppies are a little bigger than the last ones I’m probably going to be a little more nervous than I usually in when she’s having them but she’s not had problems in the past so we’re hoping no problems

This time but I don’t know every pregnancy is different every dog is different okay I’m not going to hold you right now sweetheart you’re too Heavy your M hey hey how you doing sh all right doing good how are you today good how you all right good what you got well we had uh two middle schools students found this puppy behind Baron middle yeah the puppy’s been obviously abused oh man okay let’s get on the table let’s

Take a look here okay I’m the sheriff of Peach County I’ve been in this business a long time and it’s just shocking sometimes how cruel people can be to little animals like this puppy that hadn’t done anything to anybody oh man oh Lord Lu she been and

Burn and and shot a few times too yeah what if I don’t look good just a baby boy it’s horrible you know you get these it just kind of upset you there make you want to say some words that you don’t need I don’t need to say oh yeah

Right now some cruel people tell us a loving dog look at it t look at look at her I’m definitely thankful that the sheriff department brought this dog in so that we can get his dog some relief and get his dog some treatment because if they had not brought her in she would

Not survive need to get started here okay I’m going to start with x-rays and I want to start with some blood work and we’re going to start with a St sample we know we got to address these Burns that we have here but my main concern now is

That I that’s crazy it’s no telling these people do this darnest thing and I wish you knew who it was well cuz I think you got somewhere to put them yes sir but let’s get started cuz this baby it doesn’t look very well so let’s Che

X-rays yes let’s see in my 20 plus years of being a veterinarian have I had animals that have been abused yes have I had animals that that have been shot yes but the multitude and just the quantity just so magnified I’ve never seen this

Before hey I know I know I know I take you home with me what blows my mind is this dog acts like it’s nothing going on you know it’s still has a good demeanor it’s wagging his tail it’s licking and it’s hard for me to fom how this animal

Can be in such good spirits after being traumatized like it has there we go good girl oh shoot this dog has been shot six times with a pellet gun oh my gosh oh it just missed her tracha didn’t it y you think there’s one behind her eyeball

Yeah it looks like it’s sitting right there y we want be to get it out probably behind that socket oh so when you remove this eye you don’t think you can get it I don’t know depending on how far it is in there okay just what this dog has is

Probably the most malicious actor that I’ve seen this dog has been shot with a p gun which had to be at close range one of them actually went through the eye and it’s large behind the eye and we’re going to have to remove that eye I don’t

Know who did this but whoever did it I don’t even know if I have words for it it’s it’s horrible at this point that’s all I can say si people in the world right on in there sh I probably can say this is probably the most malicious

Act this this dog been shot like six times you can see those pellets everywhere one of them went through his eye and that’s why the eye looks like that so we’re going to have to remove that one eye and then these wounds here we’ll have to address those but my main

Concern now is one is making sure we got M on board for pain that we’re comfortable next thing is we want to get a cathine we want to get on fluids and I want to make sure this baby is eating and we can get the nutritional support

Up before we give anesthesia and do surgery whoever did that is sick individual hopefully yall can get some resolve but like I said our job here to take care of this baby and that’s what we’re going to do if possible if you’re able to remove any of those we could use

Them for evidence okay definitely I know there’s one on the ear I’m sure we can remove we’ll check a couple of these other but we can we’ll do that once we do surgery yes sir okay we appreciate all right thanks sir we’re good we can okay yes sir and looking at those

Injuries this puppy was abused multiple times our role is to go out and find the individual that did this to get Justice for what they have put on to this poor little puppy that didn’t deserve this and hopefully Dr Ferguson can get her fixed up to where she’s adoptable okay

So we’re going to pull this Blood Run the CBC get a Catherine we need to put some medicated ointment on these burns bage them up and make sure this baby get some food today so we can be in good shape I want to do surgery in the

Morning cool beans I’ll get her set up all right what about hey what Charlotte for her name she needs a name Charlotte it’s a sweet name have you ever met a mean Charlotte was it Charlotte a pig in some story too Charlotte was his father’s

Name oh that’s the same one I’m old them getting them all confused Jordan Charlotte it is Charlotte it is thank you all right you like the way my de smell is it it smell good cuz you sure keep going for it despite the condition that this dog is in with those burns the

Eye looking like it is being emaciated lethargic it’s still in good spirits when that happens it’s almost like the dog is telling me help me I have the will I have the spirit to survive so it makes you want to do everything you can

To try to get this baby over to hump and hopefully we can find a home for it a she looks so sad all right where J she’s holding the Dog hey baby Dutchy yeah duches F lethargic 3 days not need as much as usual okay hey hey how are you hello is she okay no not really she not even moving I am here because my 5 month old fet is really sick hey dit well we

Really laid out yeah good boy it’s very concerning especially for my 4-year-old she has been absolutely beside herself for the last 2 days over her baby not feeling good and she been having diarrhea yes ma’am we got a pretty sick fairy here huh be right back okay yes good checks

Absolutely I’m always concerned when I got a really young Fair who just really not moving a whole lot not real active has some diarrhea my goodness she dehydrated mhm really bad di may not seem like a big thing but if you think about an animal this small losing this

Much water visious poop it can get dehydrated and die really quick there you go good job know you’re doing good good job what I want to do is analyze D’s blood and the X-ray see if we got some problems with our serum chemistry if we anemic or if anything else is

Going on come on dear I think I found your answer uh-oh have you seen like the breathing a little harder she’s been breathing fast fast and yeah that’s cuz looking at the CBC we definitely got an infection and then looking at this definitely tell me that poor baby got some

Pneumonia and we got pretty bad case okay I’m going hydrate her and then get her some antibiotics and see how we do but that’s what’s going on okay so fixable we’re going to do everything we can to fix it okay D you going to make me cry I know

We’re going to do everything we can you always worried when you have a sick fa but looking at the chest on the X-ray I’m I’m really worried about this I’m not sure if this F is going to survive I might need to keep this baby okay give us some

Love so what’s the average survival rate with this bad I’ll be honest I would probably almost be like 50/50 it’s probably better we put her in a humidifier get it hydrated and we’re going to start some antibiotic see if we can make her feel better I’m absolutely hoping she can

Pull through yeah because that would be devastating to my kids and my family if she didn’t make it I promise you I’ll do everything I can she means a lot to us so absolutely hoping for the Best how’s a happy girl all right hey how you doing I’m good how are you I am fantastic how are you hi it’s nice to meet you VJ nice to meet you nice to meet chuji the Pug is back with exciting news all right let

See hey oh look at that they’re so cute look at that face look at that face look at that face yawning Chi had her puppies and Dr hajes wanted to see them when they were 7even to 10 days old just to give them a check make sure everything was okay and

They’re adorable you going ywn again a lot of these dogs if you scratch them on the neck they will hard to do anyway there we go the delivery itself came out find the puppies are good and she’s good there’s really not a whole lot that’s more cuter than four baby pugs one thing

You do yeah I’ll put my thing in mhm when you examine we old pups first you want to make sure there’s a good good sucer reflex meaning they able to suckle with Mom and get all the milk up you always want check for Audi or any you

Know what I mean yeah umbilical C right umbilical cord so you just want to make sure the umbilical cord is good and that one is fine you also want to look at the eyes you want to listen to the heart and you just want to kind of make sure this

Pupp is in good overall health oh man he so cute hey all healthy you got some amazing pups well thank you all is well that ends well we had a little scare with Chi worried about those four big pups coming out and if mom was going to

Be able to have them but we got four beautiful puppies so they worked out real well thank y’all problem you have a good day all right Dr H just checked him out as of right now everything looks good he gave us the all clear now is the

Fun part where you get to watch the puppies grow and raise them have those good times and good memories take lots of pictures here we go she doesn’t know which way to go now she’s like I don’t know what I’m supposed to do Mom look at the big girl I know I hate

The spot Charlotte the puppy is enjoying some TLC before surgery I HTE this spot I’m rubbing that ear o that’s the best thing Miss Charlotte it’s okay girl we’re going to get you fixed up here baby this surgery kind of has two phases one is we’re going in to remove the eye

But two we’re part of the investigation you know I need to remove if I can some pellets there so the sheriff will have some evidence to use in this case because it is an ongoing case and they’re trying to find out who did this

Abuse I know we do have one that we can retrieve for evidence they really just need one you tell it went in right here you see it there there you go now most time they get shot by different objects we don’t remove them nope a lot of times you can

Cause more damage trying to remove them especially if they aren’t in an area that’s causing any issues and this they’re not it just cause damage going in but other than that they’re okay I got you all right got the P from behind the ear so let’s get ready and let’s go

Ahead and get this eye removed CH all right see what we got here I’m going around in circum of the eye and trying to to cut the muscles the muscles that make the eye turn to get behind them so I can get to the vessel in the

Nerve in the back it’s going to be a little more difficult than this one because the eye is actually ruptured I would think so we need to remove this eye cuz basic is a eye that has a hole in it and it’s not viable and it’s causing a lot of discomfort and it’s

Causing a lot of pain so removing it would definitely lead to a better quality life all right I got the whole eyeball out here oh there you go don’t look more like I do it told doing it’s closing the eyelid itself see I’m using this black suture so that look like eyelashes

That’s your version of falsies yep they legit look like eyelashes good yep just finished surgery on Charlotte we were able to remove the eye everything went well we also able to retrieve U one of the pellets that we have so they’ll use that for evidence and hopefully they can find the culprit

But everything went well my fingers crossed that this baby be doing better and we can find that forever ever home so hopefully everything works out for the best here yes it’s okay I know it Paul which one of these you think is shiny oh definitely his head kind of lopsided Patrick I know

Bless his heart today I brought Patrick dumble duck in because we noticed Patrick limping I’m feeling very thankful that we found someone that can treat a duck it’s not something every vent does hello hi how you all doing good hello Patrick what just a present yeah so what’s been going on with

Patrick here he’s been lame yes okay how long um about a week okay tell me about the environment where do we live Patrick lives on the farm all and they free free roam fre all right it’s definitely bumo foot no question about it and see it’s in both of you this one

Has it as well bu foot start is from the environment itself so the terrain or where they walk there may be sticks there may be rocks there something that breaks the Integrity of the skin area here and allows that bacteria to invade and then they get a bacterial infection

M sometime these thing can become so severe that they actually affect the localized bone and you’ll start losing bone to the point that they have to have toe imputations and things like that yeah so the first thing I want to do is I want to take some X-rays and I want to

See if there’s any bone involvement that changes the game a little bit as far as what we do in the treatment is going on okay all that okay with you you good with that okay bom foot can definitely be something serious it can be lifethreatening the duck can’t survive

With one leg but we need to take care of it I can definitely tell that this Baby’s in a lot of pain definitely need to help out here and get some relief rten let’s see what we got um we got a little separation right there that

We don’t have over here yes sir so I think it it is involving that bone I don’t like that that’s not good bring in just go that with them joh come on through okay we took an x-ray of both feet it does tell me that we have some

Involvement in the bone area there so normally we would amputate that area out of there to stop the progression can’t do it the reason is if you see the location if I go there I’m really taking the whole foot off yeah we have x-rays taking a Patrick and unfortunately we do

Have some bone involvement normally in this situation if it was in the area with the toes we can kind of remove one of those toes but it’s higher up which means if we did an aerg as far as our amputation we would have to remove the

Whole foot and of course we know that the duck just not going to be able to survive with that kind of one option is try to treat it symptomatically so what we’re going to do is I want to soak two or three times today let’s soften it up

A little bit they normally have a little core in there so we can get in there and kind of get that core out of there okay okay the core is no more than just that dead necrotic tissue that’s in the center and if we don’t remove that out

There’s a pretty good chance that this infection will come back or it’s not even gone because you have removed all of it what we’ll do is keep the baby here for a little while we do a little surge on those foot get them clean up a little bit and then get some medication

For you all right all right we Tak care of thank you very ma’am we’re going to have to take Patrick to surgery so at this point we want to give it a shot and see if it helps and we’ll kind of follow along this and see if we can get it

Healed up what we’re going to do is Soak our duck feet oh he’s feeling good though he’s happy in there all we’re just staring in him All right Patrick time to go to sleep man he chilling mhm just a matter of time buddy just a matter of time oh oh down go Fraser ready roll after soaking Patrick dumbleton to give me a good opportunity just so that we can really remove as

Much dead tissue as we can to give him the best opportunity for survival all right we just want to clean up a little bit of necrotic tissue here the leg don’t look too Good looking better now got that little core out of there that tissue that looks a lot healthier so just getting that out of there will help this process to heal some you got it DOC all right we going to move to the next foot here all right that looks good too what

You got man oh a little bummer foot meet your prove it the Dr the green vest I mean green cover off some of us have to work for a living you know I think you just been riding around in a truck with cover off that’s

It I’ll take on you later all right bro the good thing about these thing they got good blood supply don’t they they do so they bringing healing properties there all right so we’re going to cize this guy put a little bit of Carter on there all right so we use our electric

Cartery to actually electronically constrict these vessels with stop them from bleeding and we can bandage up and this baby will be able to heal hi hello hello how are you I’m good and yourself I am doing good oh yes ma’am all right so we got my man Patrick

We did some surgery we set a little dark necrotic area in the middle we got all that necrotic tissue taken out M it’s going to be a process of redressing for a period of time okay so we got some uh couple things going home with you the antibiotics something for pain I think

That’s it we going to bring your baby in all right thank you all right yes ma’am prognosis for Patrick at this point is guarded so we basically want to keep Patrick comfortable as well as on treat with antibiotics and hope that it clears this thing up but it’s really going to

Be time we’ll tell but we have a chance and that’s what we’re going to give Patrick here is Mr Patrick Hey sir oh look at him talking to you yes we’ve been very happy with everyone at Critter fixers they’ve never told us that they can’t do it they’ve given us all our

Options and I feel like they’ve been very fourth right all right Patrick you ready roll Patrick you going to be good for Mama no no no I’m the boss I tell them bumblefoot is a long-term recovery and we will be here for Patrick we are going to keep him healthy however we can

So he can have a long and healthy life at our farm with all of his friends come on let’s go home I know you’re hungry you are hungry all right Duchess Dr Hodges checks on Duchess the feret after a severe pneumonia diagnosis hey bu how active is it this

Morning we’re a lot brighter this morning look bit um our stool is much better like it’s not as mucousy okay Duchess defer has had a lengthy stay here at hotel Hodes I wasn’t so sure if Duchess was going to make it but finally duess seem to turn the corners we

Definitely a lot brighter we even sound a little bit better I ran one last complete blood count and Dutchess numbers are back to normal so I’m feeling really really good and ready to reunite dutches with her owner so it’s been a while hey b hey Mama man I tell you seeing your face

Definitely we brighten up this is our initial white blood count we were 62,000 I mean off the chart so it shows me how much the infection but we come down within the normal range cool dut is definitely was a tough case I mean her white blood CS were off the chart but

After probably about 4 or 5 days in the hospital she finally started eating and staying hydrated you know I’m cautiously optimistic we’ll go home with some antibiotics but hopefully she goes home and do as well I can tell she loves you oh yeah we going to kind of see how we

Do I got some anog for you you know keep it warm and let’s keep doing some TLC she’s at a go of it hey Mommy all right thank you so much no problem you’re very well she looks way better yes ma’am she looks a lot better

To me we’re very blessed that we were able to be here and get her treated and taken care of you ready to go home she’s hopefully going to be better and she’ll just have a happy life at home with the kids and all the other animals Hi hey Charlotte oh look what I got who gave you a Baby you okay it’s okay my bunny Oreo he’s feisty he likes to play all the time it’s not your average pet like a dog or a cat and I love him hello hey how are you good good what we got Oreo Oreo what’s going on with Oreo today um

He hasn’t been using the restroom no stool about eating um he ate like two days ago okay got you all right we’re going to look him over here you always concerned when rabbits don’t eat because rabbits really need to to continually eat or they’ll get issu with the

Digestive tract so yeah I’m definitely concerned at this point you have more than one rabbit or one just one this the only baby M okay what I want to do I want to start with the X-ray and then we’ll kind of go from there okay all right buddy let’s see what’s inside what

I want to do is I want to take a look and see if there is any stool in the digestive track in the back and from there we’ll decide what came first is the fact that we can’t defecate or the fact that we just not eating very well

And we need to find the cuse of that good job Dre that’s a nice it’s pretty picture good job you it looks great food man a lot of gas look like I see in Jester when he’s eating see even right there you got some little F balls I just want to make sure

There wasn’t like a foreign body in there something blocking him from going to the bathroom but I I don’t I don’t see what that is good job Oreo so you want to try to get some blood yeah nothing hops out at me on the X-ray being a veterinarian

Sometimes is like being a detective I Ruled up any blockages with Oreo good job so now we need to move on to the next step and run blood to try to figure out is there anything going on internally as far as organ function are concerned hey buddy what’s wrong you

Just taking a few days to chill just want to come hang out with me yeah I saw your ear go up then that mean yes one ear yes two ears no one ear I got you cool man you can come by anytime you want to you don’t

Have to act like you’re sick next time just to come and see me all right even though I think there’s a mental connection between Oreo and I I think I still better take a look at this blood work just to be sure see what’s

Going on all right so what we did we did some blood work and we’re checking for the organ function mhm we look at the alt here the high normal is 104 and the high is 612 we’re getting into liver failure the cause can be different thing

It could be something that it got into toxic okay but the plan is we need to hospitalize the baby the weekend cuz I want to give fluids to make sure we stay hydrated and try to hopefully we can flush that liver some in the kidney and get these values hold back the normal

And have us feeling better along with being on antibiotics we still don’t know what’s causing this Livery issue but whether this thing resolves really depends on how much damage has already been done to the liver we know what values we have but they could continue

To go down this could just be the start of whatever is causing this issue but the only thing far as prognosis concerned we’ll know more in the next 24 to 48 hours keep our finger crossed and say a prayer okay all right oh thank you it’s going to be all right okay I’m

Definitely worried but I’m confident that God to get them through it and Dr Ferguson will make sure that he’s okay my buddy I don’t want to think about worst case scenario I love him Charlotte are you ready today the big day we get to release Charlotte to the

Dog that was abused and the dog that was shot she’s going to a foster home until they can find a forever ever home so I’m real happy that we’re doing good today is a a fantastic day all right it’s starting to look a little better yeah

Slowly y it’s going to take time but the burns are healing up eye a that we remov is looking good as well so just got to make it to the Finish Line baby these are the ones that just touch your heart look how sweet she is yes yes sweet she

Isely Charlotte doesn’t want to go either look at I feel like it’s the hug Charlotte everyone loves around here no one really wants to see Charlotte leave but they know it’s in her best entry just go home to the Foster where she can get that one-on-one attention

Humans and she has trust in other people which is a good lesson for us you know a lot of time we like to label things and we like to group things if this person is bad that whole group is bad but it’s not like that you have to judge each

Individual as an individual and that’s exactly what Charlotte did thank you for what you do and what you did and what you’re still doing and if you need us you need anything you know how to get us right I certainly do thank I certainly do all right I’m very relieved Charlotte
