The Supervet fans rage 'I don't know why I watch!' after heart-wrenching scenes leave them 'sobbing' | The Sun

CHANNEL 4 viewers were left sobbing after last night’s episode of The Supervet where several pet owners were forced to make some difficult decisions.

In Thursday’s episode of The Supervet: Noel Fitzpatrick, the titular specialist vet had to deal with three tricky surgical cases. 


Dogs Bertie, Edith and Sonny all needed life-saving surgery and Noel was their last hope. 

In emotional scenes, Noel, 54, told the individual owners of each of the dogs that it was up to the ethics review board to decide whether they could have the surgery, or whether euthanasia would be a kinder option. 

Golden retriever Bertie and springer-spaniel Edith both needed dangerous spinal surgery while Tibetan terrier Sonny needed surgery to save his right leg. 

The owners were brought to tears as they agonised over this difficult choice and prayed Noel would be able to help their dogs.

Watching the scenes was heart-wrenching for viewers. 

“#supervet is a hard watch man. Jees!” said one viewer.

Another said: “I don’t know why I watch #Supervet It just upsets me.”

Replying to their comment, another viewer said: “Same. Always end up sobbing.”

After weeks of waiting and uncertainty, Noel performed successful surgery on Bertie, then on Edith, and then on Sonny. 

Having to perform specialist surgery is tough, and he admitted that no surgery goes perfectly every time.

“The reality is that all surgeons fail and any surgeon who thinks they don’t is deluding themselves or deluding other people,” he said. 

In response to his comment, which Channel 4 shared in a clip on Twitter, a fan shared a message of support for the vet. 

“Life & biology often tests us Noel. You can only do your best. #Supervet,” they said.

Another added: “I trust you my friend. You always do your best for your furry patients. It’s the most important thing in the world.”
