Season 9 Episode 9

In the frozen Yukon Territory in Northern Canada, you've got to be hearty and tough. You've got to expect solitude across frigid, remote landscapes with freezing temperatures, but even in the desolate wilderness you need a vet to help your ailing wiener dog. Enter Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet, that follows the experienced Dr. Michelle Oakley, veterinarian, as she makes house calls across thousands of square miles in the Yukon. Helping many species of animals, including an angry muskox, a caribou with a tumor, a defensive mama lynx, and a grey owl with an amputated wing. Accompanied by her teenage daughters and armed with humor as sharp as a scalpel, Dr. Oakley deftly juggles being a full-time veterinarian, wife and mom while taking us into the isolated regions of the Yukon.
