Nat Geo WILD’s No. 1 series The Incredible Dr. Pol returns for its third season starting Saturday, Jan. 5, at 9pm ET/PT. Once again, Dr. Jan Pol will be coming to the rescue of various animals — from cows and chickens to horses, dogs and other animals — with his hands-on, old-school approach to veterinary medicine.
Upcoming Season 3 episodes of The Incredible Dr. Pol include:
“The Cow Jumped Over the Moon” – Jan. 5 at 9pm ET/PT. Dr. Pol and Diane are experiencing some unusual animal emergencies and animals acting wild. The only reasonable explanation they can think of is the full moon. Dr. Pol and Charles head to a beef cattle farm to perform pregnancy checks, and for the first time ever, all the cows that Dr. Pol examines turn out to be pregnant. Back at the clinic, a dog hit by a motorcycle is carried in by its owner, and later, Dr. Pol and Charles head to another farm to treat a pig.
“Gallop Pol” – Jan. 12 at 9pm ET/PT. Dr. Pol visits a local breeder and frequent client to check on her limping horse. Across town, Dr. Brenda gets assistance from an Amish boy while treating his newborn foal. Charles and Dr. Pol deal with one of their most dangerous patients to date — a cow that’s not too happy about being separated from her calf.
“Llama-Rama Ding-Dong” – Jan. 19 at 9pm ET/PT. Temperatures are blazing in Michigan, and there are more farm calls than ever for Dr. Pol and his staff. The heat also brings more pregnancy checks and births, leading Dr. Pol and Charles to start their day by heading to a stable to check the status of some horses. Dr. Pol and Charles then rush over to a farm to help a cow that is struggling to deliver her calf. Dr. Brenda heads to a ranch to vaccinate minihorses, but instead gets some screaming and kicking her way.
“Flu the Coop” – Jan. 26 at 9pm ET/PT. The flu takes the clinic by storm, and Dr. Pol and his staff must fight through it to help the animals that depend on them. Dr. Pol heads to a dairy famr to check on a cow with digestive problems, and it turns out the animal swallowed some metal objects while grazing. Dr. Pol’s solution? Have the cow swallow a magnet into its stomach to keep the metal in place. Meanwhile, back at the clinic, Dr. Brenda struggles to find out what Doug the dog ate that is making him so abnormally lethargic. She finds out from Doug’s owner that it’s possible Doug could have been exposed to marijuana.
