Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This upbeat, informative series highlights the need to take the care of their beloved pets seriously, and why veterinary assistance is a necessary part of this. It demystifies some of the examination and treatment techniques used by veterinarians by offering gentle explanations of the animals' medical conditions, and showing the treatments used to help them. To make it more relatable, the hosts underscore how some of these conditions are similar to those that humans also deal with. Chances are that young viewers will enjoy the animals being featured, which range from dogs, cats, and guinea pigs to puffins, ponies, and alpacas. But Ferne and Rory's Vet Tales also teaches important lessons about the responsibility that comes with having any kind of animal in the home.
