In this episode, Charlie carries his much-loved Rottweiler cross Lulu into the practice after she loses the use of all four legs. Her spinal cord is being squashed due to deformity of bone and discs in her neck and her rapid deterioration has become a crisis. Professor Noel Fitzpatrick wants to use a fusion implant designed from her own CT scans that will fit her spine perfectly, but navigating the nerves so close to the spinal cord makes it high-risk surgery. Noel advises Charlie that things may not go according to plan. Andy and Maggs bring in their Doberman cross, Maori, with a badly bulging disc in her neck. She has been increasingly struggling to walk and is in considerable pain. The family has been advised to put Maori to sleep and have brought her to see Noel in the hope of an alternative solution.
