A statement of the obvious, perhaps, but this is a furry, feathered version of Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, with Steve Leonard in the Michael Mosley role.

In other words he’s not just the cheery, knowledgeable presenter, but also a human guinea pig when necessary – look away if you’re squeamish about a magnified view of fleas running around on Steve’s hand as he investigates which treatment is best for killing the little critters.

Other reports look into whether wet or dry pet food is best, how to clean your dog or cat’s teeth and what to do if your pet is in a road accident.

With more than 60 million animals sharing our lives as pets, this show shouldn’t be short of viewers.
