Plot Synopsis

DR. CHRIS PET VET delves into the life of Dr. Chris Brown, one of the world's busiest vets, and the animals to which he devotes his days to caring and treating. For those animals that require specialist services, Dr. Chris calls on his good friend and colleague Dr. Lisa Chimes, who works at a small animal specialist hospital. In each 30-minute episode, Dr. Chris helps three animals, including: a mother duck who has given birth on the balcony of a high-rise building; an aging Golden Retriever who is struggling to walk; an unlucky cat named Lucky; and more animals that need help or undergo elective procedures as part of long-term treatments. This series premiered as part of CBS/Litton Entertainment's three-hour educational/informational programming block on Saturday mornings, branded "The CBS Dream Team, It's Epic!," which is targeted at 13-to-16-year-old viewers. In addition to airing on CBS, this programming block is available on American bases in more than 175 countries on the American Forces Network (AFN), a worldwide radio and television broadcast network that airs programming to service members and their families at American bases as well as those serving on 140 U.S. Navy ships at sea. Plus, the programs will be accompanied by an enhanced audio description of the scenes in all episodes -- inserted during existing pauses in the show's audio track -- to better reach viewers with learning disabilities, autism, or visually impairments, as well as for English language learners.
DR. CHRIS PET VET returned for its third season on Saturday, October 3, 2015 at 9:30am ET/PT as part of CBS' Saturday morning educational & informational programming block (check local listings). The season opener, "Twice the Chris," features these stories: a bull's horns begin growing into its skull; a turtle rescue group tackles an epidemic; Neil gets to play while the doctor's away.
