A new C4 series following staff at two of the UK's busiest charity pet hospitals, beginning this week in Kirkdale in Liverpool

A sweet new daytime series based in two of the country’s largest charity pet hospitals.

The PDSA in Kirkdale, Liverpool, and its sister practice eight miles away in Huyton treat all creatures great and small.

Ginger tomcat Elvis has had a fight with a feisty fox and been brought in by his owner, Bill, with a nasty wound on his back.

Poor Elvis needs an operation but happily he’s soon fighting fit once again, allowing the narrator, Cold Feet star John Thomson, to declare, ‘Elvis has left the building!’

Other patients admitted today include a much-loved spaniel called Amber, who needs a lump looked at, a staffie called Shadow, who’s having fits, and a stray chicken who’s in need of a new home.
