Dr. Oakley Yukon Vet highlights the challenges that come from being a veterinarian practicing in remote areas, including being prepared to work with any species of animal in need, and having to drive hundreds of miles in order to meet clients. It also reveals some of the common reasons animals require emergency attention, including getting hit by cars, getting blown out of nests, and falling victim to a predatory or defensive attack.

It's interesting, but sensitive viewers might struggle with some the bloody (and clearly painful) injuries shown here, as well as the procedures and surgeries necessary for the animals' well-being. But animal lovers will enjoy the range of wild and domesticated species featured here, and folks thinking about veterinary career can also learn a few things, too.
