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.
A passionate advocate for spaying and neutering pets, Dr. Jeff has performed more than 165,000 of these population-controlling procedures that improve long-term animal health. He's committed to providing low-cost animal care to all, which means he puts the welfare of the pets well before profit. What's lost in income is made up for in the sheer volume of animals he treats and the selfless satisfaction in knowing that he has improved lives and the quality of veterinary care.
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.
