The new series starts with a tiny Jackahuahua – a Jack Russell/Chihuahua cross – who was attacked by another dog while out walking in his local park.

The pint-sized pup needs emergency spinal surgery but this is a tough case even for the magic hands of Noel.

Also in Fitzpatrick Referrals is a gentle giant with a cyst on his elbow, which needs a tricky op to get the beautiful Bernese mountain dog back to his old self.
