March 11, 2016
Denver’s most passionate and persevering veterinarian is back – flip flops, long hair, tattoos and all – to tackle high-stress situations when Animal Planet’s DR. JEFF: ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET returns for 12 all-new episodes beginning Saturday, April 16, at 9 PM ET/PT. The cases are more intense than ever when Dr. Jeff Young and his team go to great lengths to save the lives of both beloved pets and rescued wild animals. This season, they treat more mysterious illnesses, perform surgeries on creatures including little foxes and big cats and rehabilitate rescued animals before they find forever homes. There is no animal this team won’t try to save, even if it means leaving the modern-day conveniences of the clinic and traveling high into the Rocky Mountains to get to them. The challenges of running one of the busiest clinics in the country are heightened when Dr. Jeff must deal with health issues of his own.
Dr. Jeff’s sharp surgical skills and philosophy of always putting animals first make him one of the most respected veterinarians in the country, and this powerful series captures some of the riveting real-life cases that come through his doors. Cameras reveal the often tense and chaotic atmosphere at Dr. Jeff’s vet clinic Planned Pethood Plus but fortunately, Dr. Jeff’s presence provides calm to his anxious patients. With 25-plus years of veterinary experience and thousands of surgeries under his belt, Dr. Jeff guides a dedicated team of more than 30 veterinary staffers as they respond to the frenetic energy with precision, compassion and skill.
Captivated by Dr. Jeff’s intense dedication to his patients, 1.2M P2+ total viewers tuned in to the season one finale in August – a series high. The finale was also rated a series best among Women 25–54 (239,000).
