Is It Any Good?

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

This informative series demonstrates how students train at Cornell University's renown veterinary school, where, unlike human hospitals, they must learn to treat all sorts of species, many of whom have different anatomy and needs. There are some upbeat moments, but some folks will have a hard time watching bloody surgical procedures and animals occasionally being put down. But these scenes are offered within an educational and professional context, and definitely highlight the realities of the profession. Animal lovers and future vets will be drawn to it, and may learn a bit about animal care from watching.

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.
