Dee and Ken go to Yakutat, a village that hasn't had a visit from a vet in two years. Also: A dog requires a three-hour surgery to save its life; Dee gives checkups to a tegu lizard and several snakes; and a man who lost a beloved dog to cancer arrives for his new puppy's first checkup.
Dee's mom comes along for a flight to a remote clinic in Manley Hot Springs. Back in Fairbanks, a Rottweiler could have bone cancer, and a rabbit has a bad abscess, but it's smiles all around when some Saint Bernard puppies arrive.
Dee visits a ranch to tend to a pack horse that has a reputation for kicking. Meanwhile, Terry and Nicole hold a remote clinic in Arctic Village; and back in Fairbanks, a dog has a mass that could be cancerous.
Dee's dog needs eye surgery, so she takes it to a specialist in Anchorage, where she meets up with her stepdaughter to examine a barrel-racing horse. Meanwhile, Terry and Nicole have trouble at a remote clinic.
