Dr. Jeff | Back to The Roots 01:00

A brand new season of Dr. Jeff premieres Saturday, March 26th on Animal Planet.

On a growing mission to make vet care affordable for everyone, the Planned Pethood International staff tackles unusual new cases - and a few extraordinary new projects - to help more pets and owners than ever before. From baffling ailments to bizarre mishaps, every beloved pet gets the care it needs, at a fraction of the cost quoted elsewhere. Dr. Jeff and his team take on complicated procedures and work tirelessly to treat the pets and wild animals who need their help most. Stories of hope and the power of the human and animal bond are stronger than ever.

In the season premiere, Dr. Jeff, his wife Dr. Petra and vet tech Hector roll up their sleeves and head to Leadville, an old Colorado mining town, with an inspiring goal: to transform an abandoned restaurant into a new clinic, where they’ll provide desperately needed vet care to an underserved mountain community. Dr. Jeff trades his scalpel for a sledgehammer, and restaurant demolition is underway! Back in Denver, Dr. Baier treats a sneezing parrot; Dr. Jeff fights to save a Yorkie’s leg from amputation, and Dr. Jeff’s daughter Melody discovers a worrisome mass on her rescued dog Fraya.

This season, the team’s caseload spans the animal kingdom, from a raccoon injured in an illegal trap to a tiny gecko with a big surprise. Dr. Jeff treats a puppy who needs reconstructive surgery to survive, while Dr. Baier removes a fishhook from a wild goose. And when clinic receptionist Jerri’s newly adopted puppy becomes seriously ill, Dr. Petra steps in to save the pup’s life. Then Dr. Jeff hits the road, traveling to a wolf sanctuary to spay and neuter a pack of wolf hybrids. Every day brings incredible stories and life-or-death stakes: heroic Labrador Bob suffers a serious wound protecting his owner, and Dr. Don treats a Yorkie so overweight she can barely walk. And between complex cases, Dr. Jeff digs a swimming pool for his beloved dog Fred.

Animal Planet audiences can also join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #DrJeff and following Animal Planet’s Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok. All past seasons of DR. JEFF: ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET are available in their entirety on discovery+.
