Vets 24/7, Series 3 Episode 2 of 4

BBC cameras capture a week in the life of one of the largest veterinary practices in south Wales. For over 120 years, St James Vets have been treating all creatures great and small from their branches in Swansea and Neath.

This time, Tommy the tortoise is poorly and it's an emotional rollercoaster for his owners, desperate to save him. New vet Rebecca gets some hands-on experience, pregnancy testing at a dairy farm on Gower, and Tigerpuss is in the dentist chair, but will it be smiles all round for this lucky stray?
