Dr. Noel Fitzpatrick must attempt a rare, do-or-die operation that has only been carried out twice. Ianto, a 9-year-old Corgi, has an infected cancerous growth eating away at his foot, and the only way to save him is to amputate. Enter the O.R. and witness the groundbreaking procedure as vets replace his foot with a custom-made prosthetic. Then meet the next patient, a stray Jack Russell terrier whose need of treatment for a dislocated elbow is overshadowed by his need of a permanent home.
