Professor Noel Fitzpatrick is faced with two difficult cases that push his skills to the limit. One-year-old cat Peanut was born with deformed front legs and struggles to walk. His owner Denise is desperate for him to be able to run free and hopes Noel will be able to fit him with two new bionic feet. Noel is the only vet in the world to offer animals prosthetic limbs with a PerFiTS implant designed so that the bone and skin can grow into the metal, which becomes part of the skeleton. If he succeeds with Peanut, it's believed this will be the first ever animal in the world with such double front limb prostheses. But the treatment has risks, and recovery takes patience. Rachelle and John were devastated when their massive 76kg Irish Wolfhound, Ard Ri, was diagnosed with bone cancer in his leg.
