Asthma attack in the outback – from the cozy terrarium of a California chain snake to the icy outdoor use at the Arctic Circle: Anyone who works as a vet in Alaska not only has to dress warmly, but also be prepared for exotic eventualities! No problem for Dr. Terry Wighs, who flies to the remote village of Galena on the Yukon River. 150 kilometers northwest of Fairbanks, he performs eight operations and 25 vaccinations. Also: Husky mixed breed Lucy was injured in a fight with a conspecific and pot-bellied pig Lilly Lou has to go under the knife. Later, Dr. Dee visits an animal theater show in Fairbanks. With the proceeds, the vet wants to found a home for stray dogs.
