ANIMAL PLANET’S DR. JEFF YOUNG TAKES ON EMERGENCY CASES DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IN ‘DR. JEFF: ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET’
June 11, 2020
Dr. Jeff Young, Denver's most diligent and spirited veterinarian, is back during the COVID-19 pandemic in DR. JEFF: ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET: PANDEMIC EMERGENCY, a special episode premiering Saturday, June 13 at 10 PM ET/PT. While most of the country is shutting down during the pandemic, Dr. Jeff is taking on new challenges by staying open seven days a week for veterinary emergencies. He and his dedicated staff often represent one last hope and possibly the difference between life and death for their patients.
In DR. JEFF: ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET: PANDEMIC EMERGENCY the clinic staff is under unprecedented pressure as they continue to serve the community and treat the continuous flow of emergency cases during the COVID-19 pandemic. Safety measures are added to protect both staff and pet owners, with Dr. Jeff going above and beyond for the animal clients in his community. Dr. Jeff and his clinic continue to bring affordable low-cost care to thousands of pet owners who think of their animals as family, a mission that has carried on for thirty years.
Audiences will meet Penny-Rose, a puppy admitted for eating pieces of a DVD – but after examining her, Dr. Jeff discovers she’s suffering from something more life-threatening, and Kai, a beloved dog who undergoes a tough surgery after being hit by a car. When there’s a pause in the emergencies, viewers see the clinic’s fun and socially distanced way of providing free pet food to those who need it most.
In addition to watching the special on Animal Planet, viewers can check out past episodes of DR. JEFF: ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET on the Animal Planet GO App. Audiences can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #DrJeff and follow Animal Planet on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
