Hiya, I'm Ferne. Today I'm at an animal rescue centre to meet

0:00:020:00:05

some new friends and together,

0:00:050:00:07

we'll find out how the vet here cares for some of the animals.

0:00:070:00:10

And I'm Rory.

0:00:100:00:12

I'm at a wildlife park in the Highlands of Scotland to see

0:00:120:00:15

a very unusually named animal.

ALL: Hello!

0:00:440:00:46

-I'm Zoe.

-I'm Ned.

-And I'm Florie.

0:00:460:00:50

Today we are at an animal rescue centre which is near our school.

0:00:510:00:56

This is the place where animals are looked after

0:00:560:01:00

and are hopefully given new homes.

0:01:000:01:03

There's ponies, donkeys, rabbits, cats, and even farm animals.

0:01:030:01:10

And we're here to see their goose Clementine.

0:01:100:01:13

She's very cute.

0:01:130:01:15

-Hi, Florie. Hi, Zoe. Hi, Ned. KIDS:

-Hello, Ferne!

0:01:280:01:31

-Hi, Neil!

-Hi, Ferne!

0:01:310:01:33

Neil is one of the carers here at the rescue centre.

0:01:330:01:36

This place is fantastic. There are so many animals, aren't there?

0:01:360:01:40

-KIDS:

-Yes.

-But we're going to see one special animal. Who's that?

0:01:400:01:43

-Yeah, we're going to see Clementine the goose.

-Should we go see her?

0:01:430:01:46

-KIDS:

-Yeah.

-Come on.

0:01:460:01:49

CHICKENS CLUCK

0:01:490:01:51

GOOSE HONKS

0:01:520:01:56

Hello, Clementine. Hello.

0:01:560:01:59

She is beautiful. What type of goose is she?

0:01:590:02:02

-Emden goose.

-She's an Emden goose?

0:02:020:02:05

Wow, and I love her blue eyes. Ned, do you know how old Clementine is?

0:02:050:02:10

-Five years old.

-That's quite young, isn't it?

0:02:100:02:13

How long do geese live for, Neil?

0:02:130:02:15

-They can live up to about 18 years.

-Wow.

0:02:150:02:17

Can you guys see anything special about Clementine's feet?

0:02:170:02:21

-Clementine has webbed feet.

-Yeah, that's right.

0:02:210:02:24

And why do you think webbed feet are good?

0:02:240:02:27

-KIDS:

-Because they're helpful for swimming.

0:02:270:02:29

Does Clementine like swimming, Neil?

0:02:290:02:31

She loves swimming, especially in her big pond over there.

0:02:310:02:34

I can see that she's limping, her right foot here is swollen.

0:02:340:02:38

Yeah, she suffers from arthritis, we like to try and keep an eye on it

0:02:380:02:42

so we're hopefully going to get her to see the vet later on

0:02:420:02:45

-and see if we can get it sorted out.

-Oh, I hope so.

0:02:450:02:47

So shall we go meet Ian the vet? And, Neil, you can bring Clementine?

0:02:470:02:51

-Absolutely.

-Come on, guys. Let's go.

0:02:510:02:53

This is vet Ian.

0:03:050:03:07

He is originally from the country Australia,

0:03:070:03:10

where he used to care for kangaroos.

0:03:100:03:13

And he once helped a camel with a sore tummy.

0:03:150:03:17

-Hiya, Ian. Hi, Natasha.

-Hey, Ferne. Hey, guys.

-Hello.

0:03:260:03:29

Ian is one of the vets who works at the centre.

0:03:290:03:32

Natasha is a veterinary nurse who is helping out.

0:03:320:03:35

Where do we start with Clementine?

0:03:350:03:37

We'll give her a check over and have a look at her sore foot.

0:03:370:03:40

-Great.

-So we start at her head, and just check her beak and her eyes,

0:03:400:03:44

make sure they're nice and bright.

0:03:440:03:47

Do you think she looks bright and alert?

0:03:470:03:49

-Or does she look sleepy and tired?

-KIDS:

-Bright and alert.

0:03:490:03:53

She does look bright, doesn't she? She looks quite happy and bright -

0:03:530:03:57

she's been eating her breakfast really well.

0:03:570:04:00

It's good to check her general condition,

0:04:000:04:02

so make sure she's not too skinny.

0:04:020:04:04

How can you tell cos they're covered in feathers?

0:04:040:04:07

You can feel, it's called the keel bone,

0:04:070:04:09

and it's just in there, in their chest region down here.

0:04:090:04:13

And the keel bone, it should be nice and round.

0:04:130:04:16

It shouldn't be sticking up and pointy,

0:04:160:04:18

and so you can feel for that.

0:04:180:04:20

So if you want to have a feel, you can

0:04:200:04:22

just gently rub your hands in here, and then you can just reach here.

0:04:220:04:26

Can you feel there's a little ridge?

0:04:260:04:28

What does it feel like, Ned?

0:04:280:04:30

Is it nice and round or is it really pointing out? What do you think?

0:04:300:04:34

-It feels a bit pointy.

-A little bit pointy?

0:04:340:04:37

Yeah. It's not too bad.

0:04:370:04:39

But do you know what? You're probably right, and that probably

0:04:390:04:42

says to us, maybe she's not as fat and happy as she could be.

0:04:420:04:46

And can you guys think of a reason why

0:04:460:04:48

she might not be feeling that happy at the moment?

0:04:480:04:51

-She has a sore foot.

-That's exactly right.

-Bingo.

0:04:510:04:54

I think you might be right.

0:04:540:04:56

She damaged an ankle of hers earlier in the year.

0:04:560:04:59

She's been left with this swelling, and she now has

0:04:590:05:02

anti-inflammatories once a day, which helps,

0:05:020:05:05

but just recently, she's become quite sore on that ankle again.

0:05:050:05:09

So an anti-inflammatory is kind of like medicine that you

0:05:090:05:12

-put in her food and it helps with the swelling, doesn't it?

-Exactly.

0:05:120:05:15

-With swelling and soreness. Yeah.

-OK.

0:05:150:05:17

So we need to look a little bit further at this foot,

0:05:170:05:19

and see if we can do anything for her.

0:05:190:05:22

When a wound or injury swells up, turns red and hurts,

0:05:240:05:28

it's often a sign of inflammation.

0:05:280:05:31

Inflammation is the body's way of sending the right healing cells

0:05:310:05:36

to an injured part of the body.

0:05:360:05:39

Arthritis is one possible cause of inflammation.

0:05:390:05:43

It occurs when joints like your knees and ankles

0:05:430:05:46

become sore and stiff.

0:05:460:05:47

Inflammation is the body's way of telling us something is wrong.

0:05:470:05:52

-OK, I'll come round and have a look at this foot.

-Great.

0:05:530:05:57

-Switch around.

-What are you checking for?

0:05:570:05:59

So I'm just checking for heat.

0:05:590:06:01

It's important always to compare one foot to the other.

0:06:010:06:05

-I'm checking it for heat.

-What does it mean if it's hot?

0:06:050:06:08

If it's hot, it could meet it's inflamed,

0:06:080:06:10

which could be infection or it could be secondary to arthritis.

0:06:100:06:14

It can give you clues as to what could be wrong.

0:06:140:06:17

Are you trying to see if she's got an infection

0:06:170:06:20

-or arthritis that's making it swell?

-Any clues, yeah.

0:06:200:06:23

It's no hotter than the other foot,

0:06:230:06:25

-but you can see she doesn't like playing around with this foot.

-Yeah.

0:06:250:06:30

These toes...certainly the central one is very stiff.

0:06:300:06:34

And then I'll gently just check her...her tendons.

0:06:340:06:38

She doesn't seem to mind that, does she?

0:06:380:06:40

How do you think she's doing, you guys? Is she being brave?

0:06:400:06:44

-KIDS:

-Yeah.

-Yeah? She's being very good.

0:06:440:06:47

It doesn't look like it's sore for her when you touch it.

0:06:470:06:50

No, it's not super sore, but again, I'm not going to squeeze too

0:06:500:06:54

hard because we know that it is sore

0:06:540:06:57

as she is limping on the leg more than previously.

0:06:570:07:00

It's hard to tell why her foot is swollen. What's next?

0:07:000:07:03

I'm going to take her to the surgery this afternoon

0:07:030:07:07

and we'll do an X-ray to have a look

0:07:070:07:09

and see what's going on inside that foot.

0:07:090:07:12

An X-ray is a photograph that lets vets see the bones inside an animal.

0:07:120:07:17

Vet Ian has to take Clementine back to his surgery,

0:07:170:07:20

where he has the special camera that can take the X-ray

0:07:200:07:24

and later on, we'll get to see the photographs.

0:07:240:07:27

While Clementine gets a much-needed X-ray,

0:07:270:07:30

let's see who else Ian checked on today.

0:07:300:07:33

CLEMENTINE YIPS

0:07:330:07:34

-Yip yip yip!

-Yip yip.

0:07:340:07:36

Vet Ian had a busy day seeing lots of animals

0:07:420:07:45

that were at the rescue centre.

0:07:450:07:47

There were loads of rabbits to check on.

0:07:470:07:50

One called Flash hurt his back very badly, but he is now up

0:07:510:07:55

and moving around again.

0:07:550:07:58

He's clean, he's bright, it's amazing.

0:07:580:08:01

Pumpkin the guinea pig had also hurt his back, and he had his teeth

0:08:010:08:05

knocked out, but they are all grown back now and he is doing well.

0:08:050:08:10

And this sparrowhawk was found with a broken wing.

0:08:100:08:14

It will need an operation to help fix it.

0:08:140:08:17

What an amazing job the team at the rescue centre and vet Ian do.

0:08:180:08:23

CLEMENTINE HONKS

0:08:250:08:27

We've got Clementine's X-ray here.

0:08:290:08:32

This is where Ian saw more swelling on the foot.

0:08:320:08:35

This is because she's got arthritis.

0:08:350:08:37

But Ian will give her medicine to help with the pain

0:08:370:08:40

and make her comfortable.

0:08:400:08:42

-Isn't that good? KIDS:

-Yeah!

0:08:420:08:44

Yeah, well done, Clementine.

0:08:440:08:46

I've had such a wonderful time meeting you and gorgeous Clementine.

0:08:460:08:50

Would it be all right if I came back soon to see how you're getting on?

0:08:500:08:54

-KIDS:

-Yeah!

-Thank you very much.

0:08:540:08:56

Let's see what Rory's been up to.

0:08:560:08:58

CAR HORN HONKS

0:09:020:09:04

RORY: At this wildlife park in the Highlands of Scotland,

0:09:060:09:10

lots of different animals are cared for by a team of vets and keepers.

0:09:100:09:14

Today, vet Jane and keeper Morag are introducing me

0:09:160:09:19

to an animal with some very impressive horns.

0:09:190:09:23

-Hi, Jane, Hi, Morag. BOTH:

-Hi, Rory.

0:09:280:09:30

-Who lives here?

-We have markhor in here. Three boys.

-Brilliant.

0:09:300:09:34

Turkmenian markhor are a type of large goat found in central Asia.

0:09:340:09:38

They've got relatively short legs, broad hooves,

0:09:380:09:41

and an impressive mane.

0:09:410:09:43

The coolest thing about them are the big curly horns on their head -

0:09:430:09:47

both males and females have them.

0:09:470:09:49

Is there a particular animal you want to look at today?

0:09:490:09:52

Today we'll look at Yoakum - the largest, oldest male we have here.

0:09:520:09:56

He gets overgrown feet, so he's due a hoof trim.

0:09:560:09:59

They're big animals, how do you get close enough to work on them?

0:09:590:10:02

We have to use a tranquillizer, to put him in a deep sleep

0:10:020:10:06

so we can go in and handle him and he won't get stressed.

0:10:060:10:08

-Shall we get to work?

-Yes.

-Yeah.

-Cool.

0:10:080:10:10

Yoakum has been given a red dart with a tranquillizer in it

0:10:140:10:18

to make him sleepy.

0:10:180:10:19

Once he's asleep, Jane and Morag cover his eyes

0:10:190:10:22

with a jumper to keep him calm so they can treat him.

0:10:220:10:26

OK, so Yoakum is lying here. What do you want to do first?

0:10:260:10:30

First we want to check he's asleep enough

0:10:300:10:32

and he's OK and there's not a problem with the anaesthetic.

0:10:320:10:36

We'll put some cotton wool in his ears

0:10:360:10:38

and try and keep the noise down so we don't wake him.

0:10:380:10:42

-Then we'll listen to his heart.

-OK.

0:10:420:10:44

HEART BEATS

0:10:440:10:46

-OK.

-All sounding good?

-Yeah, that also looks good.

0:10:460:10:49

I'm happy he's nice and asleep, and we can go and do his foot trim.

0:10:490:10:53

So these are some pretty big clippers you've got here.

0:10:530:10:57

Those are some tough hooves to get through?

0:10:570:11:00

They can be for the big nails - we have to trim off quite a lot.

0:11:000:11:03

Obviously this isn't painful cos he's asleep

0:11:030:11:06

but when they wake up, there's no pain?

0:11:060:11:08

No, it's like trimming your toenails.

0:11:080:11:11

-He has no feeling in that at all.

-How often do you have to do this?

0:11:110:11:15

We have to do these guys about every three months, but in their

0:11:150:11:18

natural environment, they'd live in a very rocky, hard area.

0:11:180:11:22

They'd naturally wear away by rubbing on the rocks.

0:11:220:11:24

Yes. It can cause problems and infections if they're too long -

0:11:240:11:28

-the hoof splits.

-Right, OK. Looks good.

-OK. The other one.

0:11:280:11:32

And, Jane, do you take the opportunity of the animal

0:11:320:11:35

being in a deep sleep to check anything else while you're here?

0:11:350:11:39

We'll do a health check because it's often the only opportunity we get.

0:11:390:11:43

One left.

0:11:430:11:44

We'll then put some antibiotic spray on his feet,

0:11:460:11:49

which will give him blue feet for the rest of the day.

0:11:490:11:52

The spray is just to stop any bugs getting in?

0:11:520:11:55

Yeah, that's just...

0:11:550:11:56

helps any infection.

0:11:560:11:58

Once the tranquillizer wears off, Yoakum wakes up

0:11:580:12:00

and is back on his freshly trimmed hooves.

0:12:000:12:04

You're both happy with how Yoakum's doing?

0:12:040:12:07

Yep, happy. He's sleepy, but he's woken up nicely.

0:12:070:12:10

Feet look good. He'll snooze this afternoon.

0:12:100:12:13

He's been a very well-behaved boy.

0:12:130:12:15

Thank you for letting me see such a cool procedure.

0:12:150:12:18

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:12:180:12:20

Not long ago, I met Ned, Florie, and Zoe, and they introduced me to

0:12:240:12:28

Clementine the goose, who had a sore foot.

0:12:280:12:31

Now I'm back to see how they're getting on.

0:12:310:12:34

GOAT BLEATS

0:12:340:12:35

-Hi, guys. KIDS:

-Hi, Ferne!

0:12:450:12:47

Are you giving these lovely ducks and chickens

0:12:470:12:50

and geese some more straw?

0:12:500:12:52

-KIDS:

-Yeah.

-Oh, fantastic job.

0:12:520:12:54

-How's Clementine's foot? NED:

-Good.

0:12:540:12:56

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-Is she doing better? KIDS:

-Yeah.

0:12:560:13:00

Her foot is still swollen, but her new medicine must be working

0:13:000:13:04

as she's having a lovely time swimming in that pond.

0:13:040:13:07

It's fantastic that Clementine is doing so much better.

0:13:070:13:11

Thank you for joining us,

0:13:110:13:12

I hope you had fun finding out all about this beautiful goose.

0:13:120:13:17

-FLORIE:

-Well done, Clementine.

0:13:170:13:19

See you next time for more Ferne And Rory's Vet Tales.

0:13:190:13:23

-ALL:

-Bye!
