Six ordinary school kids have been chosen from a thousand applicants to find out if they've got what it takes to be a vet. They all want to help injured animals and poorly pets. But will they impress their mentor - top vet Paul Manktelow? And who'll stand out in the competition to be named Head Vet?

The Junior Vets are getting into their stride and finding out what real vet work is all about. Saira attempts to overcome her fear of big dogs to help Jessie, a stray hound who needs life-changing surgery to find a new home. Plus, the Junior Vets investigate Kira the mare's heart murmur and operate on Gandalf the falcon's lumpy foot.
