The Incredible Dr. Pol season 2 episodes list:
We revisit a busy day as it begins with a clinic packed with animals and owners. First up, a dog that really does eat homework. With some anesthesia and a few quick moves, Dr. Pol safely removes the spiral metal from his gums. Later, Dr. Pol is busy with patients when the tornado sirens start blaring. The whole clinic, including pets and owners must head to the basement for their safety and ride out the storm.
We check back in to see how Dr. Pol and Dr. Brenda are juggling an explosion of patients. First, Dr. Brenda removes an abscess from a puppy. Then, Dr. Pol determines a horse's teeth are not aligned, making it difficult for her to chew. He quickly nips the horse's teeth, allowing her to comfortably chew her food again. Next, Dr. Pol discovers a sick cow not only has a fever, but is pregnant! Find out if Dr. Pol will be able to deliver the calf before it's too late.
It's spring, the busiest time of year at the clinic. In order to keep things on track, Dr. Pol and his team have decided it is time to search for another veterinarian. Dr. Pol, his son Charles and a student from Iowa State who is shadowing Dr. Pol for the day head out to check on a downed cow at a nearby farm. After injecting the cow with calcium and phosphorus, the three go to a local breeder and trainer of racehorses to ensure that his animals are in good health for breeding.
Dr. Pol and his hard-working team have another packed schedule of farm calls and clinic appointments. A horse in rapidly worsening health and a hairless calf with a poor chance of survival take their toll on the team. However, their expertise and dedication is the result of a healthy newborn calf and a beagle that survives a serious neck injury. Another busy, emotional week only secures the fact that Pol Veterinary Service is in serious need of more help.
In an enhanced episode we see it's another emotional day for Dr. Pol and his team that starts even before the clinic opens—in the early morning hours, Dr. Pol mistook a bat for a rotten banana peel and got bitten. He takes the bat to animal control to get it tested for rabies, and a positive result could endanger the health of his whole family.
With Mother's Day on its way, it is only fitting that Dr. Brenda successfully deliver twin calves on a farm call. Across town a horse breeder receives the good news that several of his mares are pregnant and can soon expect foals. Back at the clinic, Dr. Brenda struggles with a young dog that can't seem to keep anything in his stomach, while Dr. Pol treats a baby goat with an abscess on its chin.
The Pols are experiencing some unusual emergencies and the only explanation they can think of is the full moon. Dr. Pol and Charles head to a cattle farm to perform pregnancy checks. For the first time ever, all the cows they examine are pregnant! Back at the clinic, an X-ray of a dog hit by a motorcycle shows bruising, but no broken bones. Luckily, the dog is able to leave that day. Then Dr. Pol heads to treat a pig with a rectal prolapse - a dose of antibiotics will help alleviate discomfort.
Dr. Pol and Dr. Brenda face another unpredictable week of diagnostics, treatments and surgeries. He visits a local breeder and frequent client to check on her limping horse, DooBee. Though DooBee isn't really a compliant patient, the doctor's tactics help him treat his old friend in no time flat. Across town, Dr. Brenda gets help from an Amish boy while treating his newborn foal. Charles and Dr. Pol deal with one of their most dangerous patients yet -- an angry cow separated from her calf.
Temperatures are blazing in Michigan and there are more farm calls than ever. The heat also brings more pregnancy checks and births, leading Dr. Pol and Charles to start their day by heading out to a stable to check the status of some horses. Meanwhile, Dr. Brenda heads to a ranch to vaccinate minihorses, but instead gets some screaming and kicking. By the time she's finished, Dr. Brenda is bruised and bleeding, but she never gives up when it comes to the health of their patients.
The flu takes the clinic by storm, but Dr. Pol and his staff must fight through it. Dr. Brenda struggles to find out what is causing a dog to be so abnormally lethargic. She learns from his owner that it's possible he was exposed to marijuana. Dr. Brenda is relieved that the dog will be back to normal in a day. Then an entire herd of cows are too thin despite being well fed. Dr. Pol thinks it's a lack of minerals, and is surprised to find the entire herd has come down with pneumonia.
With more than 19,000 clients, Dr. Pol is stretched to the limit. To keep up with calls, he adds Dr. Sandra to the staff. A farm girl at heart with lots of large animal experience, Dr. Sandra treats a downed horse with lesions that make it nearly impossible to stand and nurse her colt. Elsewhere, Dr. Brenda is called to treat a bloated cow in critical condition. Without treatment the cow will die, but with one simple procedure, she miraculously has him off the ground and eating in minutes.
It's time for the Isabella County Fair, which culminates in the 4-H competition. Dr. Pol and his staff are busy tending to animals that need last minute checkups to make them eligible to compete. Dr. Pol, Charles and Dr. Sandra bounce back and forth between the fair and farm calls, while Dr. Brenda holds down the fort at the clinic to deliver a set of bulldog puppies. When Dr. Pol and Charles get in to a bidding war over a sheep at the fair, it's anybody's guess as to who will come out on top.
We revisit Dr. Pol and his son Charles as they must solve a mystery -- 10 Angus steers have suddenly gone lame and are struggling to stand. A steer's kick can be lethal, and to treat the sick cattle Dr. Pol will have to stand directly in harm's way. Back at the clinic, we see a recent widow who is prepared to pay whatever it costs to save her late husband's dog after the pet swallowed a rock. The sweltering heat isn't the only thing causing Dr. Pol to sweat; he's preparing for a family reunion.
It's one of Michigan's hottest summers on record, and the sweltering heat is taking a toll on both Dr. Pol and the local farm animals. Dr. Pol and Charles hope to save a newborn calf with pneumonia, but the thick blanket of humidity covering the area makes their mission even more difficult. Meanwhile, Dr. Brenda and newcomer Dr. Sandra struggle to help a stubborn pig give birth on a brutally hot day.
Before Dr. Pol is able to enjoy the Fourth of July, he must take care of animals in need. Dr. Brenda prescribes anti-anxiety medications to a puppy so she can get through the fireworks. Then, they receive a visit from a very sick dog, Gabby. Dr. Pol isn't sure what's causing her distress and it's uncertain if she'll wake up in the morning. Then, Dr. Brenda and Dr. Sandra help a cow in labor. The calves are positioned upside-down. Will they be able to save them?
As the temperature rises in Michigan, Dr. Pol heads to a farm to help a cow that needs calcium immediately-but if he doesn't administer it right, she'll die. Then, he helps a crippled horse that has been infected by the West Nile virus. Will he treat it, or is it too late? At the clinic, a beagle has been in labor for the past 18 hours. Dr. Pol knows that the babies are too big to come out own their own. His experience shines through as he performs an emergency cesarean section, saving her life.
