Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Pet MDs is a great learning opportunity for young veterinarian wannabes, but parents should beware of the graphic footage and emotional discussions between veterinarians and owners, which make the series inappropriate for young kids or those sensitive to the sight of blood. Watching the students give exams and listening to their decision-making process is a twist that sets the show apart. The students are very honest in their feelings about talking to owners about their pet's health, participating in surgery for the first time, and even talking to the resident veterinarian about their diagnosis. Pet M.D. is a good choice for older kids interested in pursuing veterinary medicine; by watching, they'll get a real taste of its challenges and rewards.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
