Series 2, Episode 2

“Ahem, Mr Hero Vet…”

“Yes, Nurse Cool Aloof”

“El Disho Vetto has been spinning on his chair again – for goodness sake, you’re our senior man, when are you going to get us some proper work!”

“Aha, Nurse Cool Aloof, I have a “cunning plan”…”

Uh Mr Hero Vet, did you really have to shave off so much of Ty's fur when Mummy Sue was worried that he was going bald? Could't you just have given him a comb-over?

Uh Mr Hero Vet, did you really have to shave off so much of Ty’s fur when Mummy Sue was worried that he was going bald? Couldn’t you just have given him a comb-over?

“hmmph”

“No really, Mummy Sue has transferred Ty’s care from the other town vet to us – El Disho Vetto is actually spinning with joy”

“I see, so that sobbing I can hear in the distance….?”

“Yes, that the sound of Ty’s old vet handing in the keys to his Ferrari….”

“But Mr Hero Vet, Ty’s only 8 years old, he might not have anything wrong”

“Ha ha, you’re so funny, Nurse Cool Aloof, Ty belongs to Mummy Sue! Look at his records so far – he’s accident-prone AND a food thief; not that I wish him ill of course, but you know Mummy Sue…”

“Don’t you think she’s just a paranoid mummy – look Ty’s booked in for  just “not being right”, huh it’s her that’s not right in my opinion”

“Wash you mouth out with soap Nurse Cool Aloof, Mummy Sue says she suspects thyroid trouble, it’ll be a quick blood test, there will be nothing big wrong, we’ll treat with a tonic and a conditioning shampoo and I’ll be a hero…”

“Sounds like a plan, Mr Hero Vet, let’s prove to Mummy Sue once an for all that she just worries too much”……

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

“Snap my surgical gloves, Ty HAS got low thyroid levels – but why? Oh it’s bound to be a simple thing, treat with thyroxine and I’m still a hero”….

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

“Snap my surgical gloves, it’s NOT simple, Ty’s blood results are a worrying mystery, better do a scan”….

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

"Oh dear Mr Hero Vet, it's not looking too good"...."Don't worry Nurse Cool Aloof, that just Ty being a proper greyhound!"

“Oh dear Mr Hero Vet, it’s not looking too good”….”Don’t worry Nurse Cool Aloof, that just Ty being a proper greyhound!”

“Nurse Cool Aloof, can I snap your surgical gloves, my wrist is getting sore”

“Absolutely not, Mr Hero Vet, what’s wrong now?”

“Ty’s scan and blood results mean that he’s either got an extremely rare condition or a vanishingly rare condition…”

“No, seriously, you mean, no, it can’t be, Mummy Sue wasn’t…..oh no….right to investigate Ty’s micro-symptoms?”

“I’m afraid she was, Nurse Cool Aloof, now we have to call in the reinforcements – let’s send Ty for a CT scan – let’s send him to that posh private facility with the charming irish radiographer – Mummy Sue will appreciate that…”

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

“Nurse Cool Aloof, we have good news”…

“Yes?”

“It doesn’t look as if Ty has an extremely rare kidney tumour, though he may have a vanishingly rare blood condition”

“How will you know?”

“There’s one more test result to come in, Nurse Cool Aloof then we’re in the clear….”

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

“There’s a call for you Mr Hero Vet, it’s your accountant, Mr Scrooged…..”

“Aah, Mr Scrooged here, this month’s takings appear to be from just one client, can this be correct? Did you not LISTEN to my lecture on the subtle art of money laundering last month?”

“MR SCROOGED, how could you suggest such a thing, those takings are from Mummy Sue – a gazillion blood tests, scans and another gazillion blood tests adds up you know…”

“My apologies, Mr Hero Vet, you should have SAID it was Mummy Sue – I wouldn’t have troubled you with this call if I’d known….”

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

So, will Ty’s results leave him in the clear? Will Mr Hero Vet’s staff get a Christmas bonus? Find out more in the exciting seasonal special….
