People will do anything for their pets

The health and welfare of people’s pets is a billion dollar industry. There is almost no limit to the treatment available to our furry friends – MRIs and even stem cell transplants are now standard. This documentary takes the viewer inside veterinary surgeries across the US and Canada to witness cutting edge technology being used to treat pets, even including prostheses.
We also visit Toronto Veterinary Emergency Hospital. With a staff of almost one hundred, and state of the art medical equipment on site, this is a real hospital offering the same treatment you’d expect at a human hospital. Not surprisingly, medical bills can quickly go from the hundreds into the thousands.
