I think I'm going to leave

this animal care to Ferne and Rory.

0:00:000:00:00

Hello, I'm Rory and today

I'm in Kinross in Scotland to meet

0:00:030:00:07

Autumn and her gorgeous dogs,

who are visiting the vet

0:00:070:00:10

for a very special reason.

0:00:100:00:12

And I'm Ferne.

0:00:120:00:13

I'll be finding out how the vets

here at a wildlife park in Kent

0:00:130:00:17

help to keep the animals

fit and healthy.

0:00:170:00:20

# Ferne and Rory,

telling you the story

0:00:250:00:28

0:00:280:00:30

# We will take them,

show you how to make them

0:00:410:00:44

Hi, I'm Autumn. These are my dogs.

0:00:460:00:50

I have four dogs.

0:00:500:00:52

Three are black and one is yellow.

0:00:520:00:57

They are all girls.

0:00:570:00:58

River, Suri, Brooke and Grace.

0:00:580:01:02

Look how beautiful they are.

0:01:020:01:06

We run around and play together.

0:01:060:01:10

My dogs love playing in the water.

0:01:100:01:12

I love my dogs so much.

0:01:120:01:15

DOORBELL RINGS

0:01:220:01:24

Hi, Rory.

Hello, Autumn. Hi, Ashley.

Hi, Rory.

0:01:240:01:28

Would you like to come and see

our dogs?

Of course I do. Let's go.

0:01:280:01:32

Come on.

0:01:320:01:33

Good girl, come. River. Come.

0:01:330:01:36

Hello. Who do we have here, then?

0:01:360:01:39

That's Brooke, that's Grace, there

and this is River and that's Suri.

0:01:390:01:44

And are any of these guys family?

Suri and River are sisters.

0:01:440:01:49

They're sisters?

And who's the mum.

Brooke.

Wow.

0:01:490:01:52

They are gorgeous and they're very

cuddly as well, aren't they?

0:01:520:01:56

You must know what sort of dogs

these guys are.

Labradors.

0:01:560:02:00

Absolutely, they are.

0:02:000:02:01

Labradors are very popular and very

friendly dogs, as you can see.

0:02:010:02:06

Do want to come and see them do some

tricks?

Of course, come on.

0:02:060:02:10

Come on, dogs, let's go.

Down.

Clever dog.

0:02:100:02:14

Well done.

Spin.

0:02:140:02:17

Speak. Speak, Grace.

0:02:170:02:19

DOG BARKS

0:02:190:02:21

Well, that was very impressive

0:02:210:02:23

but your dogs are special

for another reason, aren't they?

0:02:230:02:27

They are life-savers.

Are they?

What do they do to save lives?

0:02:270:02:30

They give blood.

That is amazing.

0:02:300:02:34

Blood donor dogs.

0:02:340:02:35

So just like humans,

dogs can give blood.

0:02:350:02:38

They go to a special place and give

a small amount of their blood

0:02:380:02:42

and it's stored safely

until it's needed by a poorly dog.

0:02:420:02:46

We're taking Suri and Brooke to give

blood today.

0:02:460:02:49

Would you like to come?

I'd love to come. Let's go, then.

0:02:490:02:53

This is Fiona.

She's been a vet for nine years.

0:02:590:03:02

She once had to remove

a coin from a cat's tummy

0:03:040:03:07

and, although she's a vet,

she's allergic to horses.

0:03:070:03:11

Hi. Hi, Rory. Hi, Autumn.

Hello.

Hello. Hiya.

0:03:220:03:26

Right, shall we take Brooke through

first?

Brooke's first. Let's go.

0:03:260:03:30

Great, come on through.

See you soon.

See you soon.

0:03:300:03:34

Right, just come on in. Come on,

Brooke.

0:03:340:03:36

Well done.

Good girl.

Hello.

Right, what's first, Fiona?

0:03:360:03:40

First thing I'm going to do is pop

her on the scales over here.

OK.

0:03:400:03:44

Good girl.

So sit down, Brooke. 27.

27?

0:03:440:03:46

What weight are you

looking for there?

0:03:460:03:48

We're looking for a dog that is

over 25kg,

0:03:480:03:51

so it's absolutely fine for Brooke

to go ahead today.

0:03:510:03:54

Right, what's next?

Right, we just go across over here.

0:03:540:03:58

Brooke gets some hair shaved off

so Fiona can take a small

0:03:580:04:01

amount of Brooke's blood.

0:04:010:04:03

This is tested to make sure Brooke

is healthy and can give blood today.

0:04:030:04:08

Right, that's the blood all sorted,

so what is happening next?

0:04:080:04:12

I'm going to look at Brooke

from the top of her nose to the tip

0:04:120:04:16

of her tail. Right, let's have a

look at these eyes.

0:04:160:04:19

What are you looking for

in the eyes?

0:04:190:04:21

Looking to see if she's got any

eye infections,

0:04:210:04:24

any problems with her teeth.

0:04:240:04:26

Checking the glands in her neck,

checking her ears.

0:04:260:04:29

Looking for gunk or

anything in those ears?

0:04:290:04:31

Looking to see

if she's got any stuff in there.

0:04:310:04:34

I'm just going to have a listen to

her heart now.

0:04:340:04:37

Good girl.

Super.

Brilliant.

0:04:370:04:39

It's important we have

her heart rate now so that

0:04:390:04:42

when she's given blood, we can check

her heart again after.

0:04:420:04:46

Can we listen to that?

0:04:460:04:49

HEART BEATS

0:04:460:04:49

What does it sound like?

Boom, boom.

Boom, boom, yeah.

0:04:490:04:52

I'm just running my hands over to

feel for any lumps or bumps,

0:04:520:04:56

anything we don't already know

about.

0:04:560:04:58

I'm just going to have a

feel of her tummy.

OK.

0:04:580:05:01

The last thing we need to do is

check her temperature.

0:05:010:05:04

I'm happy with everything on her

clinical exam.

0:05:040:05:07

She can go next door to take her

blood.

Awesome.

0:05:070:05:10

You're going to give some blood. You

did so well. Come on, darling.

0:05:100:05:15

If a dog gets sick

or has been injured,

0:05:180:05:20

sometimes it might need to visit

the vets to be given some blood.

0:05:200:05:25

The blood from amazing blood

donor dogs like Suri

0:05:250:05:28

and Brooke can be given to the sick

dog to help make them better.

0:05:280:05:32

Blood donor dogs help over 1,000

dogs every year.

0:05:320:05:36

DOG BARKS

0:05:360:05:38

Brooke has passed all of her tests,

so while vet Fiona checks over Suri,

0:05:410:05:45

Lee and her team are going to

collect Brooke's blood.

0:05:450:05:49

So you always lie

the dog on their side, yes?

0:05:490:05:52

Always on their side, yeah,

0:05:520:05:53

because what we're going to do

is we're going to take

0:05:530:05:57

the donation from the donation site

which was clipped earlier.

0:05:570:06:01

That's the big patch that was

shaved a minute ago, right?

0:06:010:06:04

Do you think she's liking all these

strokes? Yeah?

0:06:040:06:07

Brooke feels a little scratch

when the needle goes in

0:06:070:06:11

but she's not in any pain.

0:06:110:06:13

She looks very relaxed.

0:06:130:06:15

Brooke is doing so well.

0:06:150:06:17

How many times has she done

this before, Autumn?

A lot.

0:06:170:06:20

More than ten.

More than ten?

0:06:200:06:22

Well, you can tell.

Look how relaxed she is.

0:06:220:06:25

As soon as the needle goes in,

blood starts coming out.

0:06:250:06:28

It goes through a tube and it's

collected in a plastic bag.

0:06:280:06:33

So we can see the blood is coming

out now

0:06:350:06:37

and is that scales you've got down

there?

Yeah.

0:06:370:06:40

We measure on the scales how much

we take and we also time how

0:06:400:06:44

long it takes as well.

OK.

0:06:440:06:46

So we like it to be maybe seven

minutes to take the donation.

0:06:460:06:49

Okey doke.

0:06:490:06:51

Are you very proud of Brooke for

giving blood?

Yes, she's a hero.

0:06:510:06:55

She certainly is.

0:06:550:06:58

Once the bag is full, the blood

is taken away and stored safely

0:06:580:07:02

until it's needed by a poorly dog.

0:07:020:07:04

So the needle comes out.

First of all, right.

0:07:060:07:08

We make that nice and safe.

OK.

0:07:080:07:10

That's one of the things

we have to do first.

Sorted.

0:07:100:07:14

Claire is putting pressure on

Brooke's neck to stop

0:07:140:07:17

the flow of blood.

We put a bandage on her. A pink one.

0:07:170:07:20

Another thing that we do is

we do another couple of checks.

0:07:200:07:23

Claire is checking her gums.

0:07:230:07:25

So if you put pressure on and

release it, the blood

0:07:250:07:28

comes back in.

It's a bit

like pressing your own skin.

0:07:280:07:32

It goes lighter,

then the blood comes back.

0:07:320:07:34

The other thing we do is

check her heart rate.

0:07:340:07:37

We don't use a stethoscope here.

0:07:370:07:39

We check with the pulse

that's in the leg.

0:07:390:07:42

You can feel your heartbeat in

different places, can't you?

0:07:420:07:45

Ever felt your heartbeat

in your wrist?

0:07:450:07:48

You can feel it in your neck

as well. Can you feel it?

0:07:480:07:51

It's called your pulse.

Yeah.

0:07:510:07:53

That's the blood

pumping around your body.

0:07:530:07:56

Brooke is absolutely fine after

donating her blood

0:07:560:07:59

and a few minutes later,

she's back on her feet.

0:07:590:08:02

Well done.

Would you like to give

her a treat?

Yes?

0:08:020:08:06

Good girl.

She's so good.

0:08:070:08:09

Come on, Brooke, let's go.

0:08:110:08:12

Brooke and Suri weren't the only

dogs to give blood today.

0:08:220:08:25

Lots of other dogs visited two.

0:08:250:08:28

Another Labrador, Quincy,

donated blood for the first time.

0:08:280:08:32

Lucy also gave blood.

She's a greyhound.

0:08:340:08:37

She used to run races but never won.

0:08:370:08:39

Not everyone managed to give blood,

though.

0:08:430:08:46

Korah came in for a trial run

but wasn't quite able to.

0:08:460:08:50

Maybe next time, Korah.

0:08:500:08:51

Autumn, I have loved meeting you

and your amazing life-saving dogs.

0:08:530:08:58

I wondered if I could come back and

see how they're getting on soon?

0:08:580:09:02

Yes, please, Rory.

Yes?

Oh, you agree as well.

0:09:020:09:05

Thank you very much.

0:09:050:09:07

Now I wonder what

Ferne has been up to today.

0:09:070:09:10

HORN BEEPS

0:09:140:09:16

At this wildlife park, keepers

0:09:160:09:18

and vet, Rachel, look after many

different animals.

0:09:180:09:22

This way.

0:09:220:09:23

And today I'm eating some really

wriggly ones.

0:09:230:09:26

There you go, Ferne.

Thank you.

0:09:260:09:29

Ferrets. I love ferrets.

0:09:290:09:31

They're like the cheekiest animals

ever, aren't they, Rachel?

They are.

0:09:310:09:35

Hi. So who's this?

0:09:350:09:37

That one is Fudge.

She's beautiful.

0:09:370:09:40

I love her little mask.

0:09:400:09:42

And this one is Fred.

0:09:420:09:43

He's huge.

He is. Big boy.

0:09:430:09:47

So squiggly.

They are.

0:09:470:09:48

They're very energetic.

0:09:480:09:50

Male ferrets tend to be bigger

than the females

0:09:500:09:53

and they are really social animals.

0:09:530:09:56

They enjoy company

and love to jump around.

0:09:560:09:58

What are you doing with Fudge

and Fred today?

0:09:580:10:01

They're new to the park so we're

going to put a microchip in

0:10:010:10:05

them so we can identify them if

they get lost.

0:10:050:10:07

Microchips are little chips

that are injected under their skin.

0:10:070:10:11

They help us find

lots of information on the animals,

0:10:110:10:15

like where they're from and who

they are in case they get lost.

0:10:150:10:18

You're going to have your own

microchip. Who's first?

0:10:180:10:22

As you've got Fred,

let's start with him.

Perfect.

0:10:220:10:25

Are you ready, Freddie?

0:10:250:10:27

What we'll do ism if you can hold

him like that,

0:10:270:10:30

I just need a little bit of scruff

on the back of his neck.

0:10:300:10:33

That's it.

0:10:330:10:34

Done.

Does it hurt them, Rachel?

0:10:360:10:38

It doesn't hurt them too much

but they can feel a little pinch.

0:10:380:10:42

Sometimes they flinch a little bit.

0:10:420:10:44

Same as if we're having a

vaccination, but it's very quick

0:10:440:10:48

and they're normally back to their

normal selves straightaway.

0:10:480:10:52

We need to scan him to make

sure that the chip is working.

0:10:520:10:55

Perfect. So this scanner just reads

his number?

It does.

0:10:550:10:59

It comes up with a number on the

screen, there, and that is his

0:10:590:11:02

unique number that will stay with

him for the rest of his life and

0:11:020:11:07

hold all the important information

we need to know about him.

0:11:070:11:11

Fantastic. Well done, Fred.

You brave little ferret.

0:11:110:11:15

Fudge's turn next. Are you ready?

0:11:150:11:18

Oh, well done.

Good girl.

All done. Good girl.

0:11:220:11:25

Probably a bit of a fright,

isn't it?

Yes.

0:11:250:11:28

Never had anything like that before?

0:11:280:11:30

No, it was a big thing

for a little ferret.

0:11:300:11:33

Do we need to test

if the chip works?

We do.

0:11:330:11:36

MACHINE BEEPS

0:11:360:11:38

Yep, she's all good to go.

Well done.

0:11:380:11:40

They've been so brave, haven't they?

They've been very brave.

0:11:400:11:44

It's been so interesting finding

out about these cheeky

0:11:440:11:48

ferrets and it's been great seeing

the work that you do to keep them

0:11:480:11:52

happy and healthy.

0:11:520:11:53

Thank you very much.

My pleasure.

0:11:530:11:56

Recently, I met Autumn

and her awesome blood donor dogs.

0:12:020:12:06

I'm back today to see how

they're all getting on

0:12:060:12:09

and to meet another very

special doggy friend.

0:12:090:12:12

Hi, guys, good to see you all.

Hi, Rory.

0:12:180:12:21

Brooke and Suri are looking well

after giving blood.

0:12:210:12:24

And who do we have here?

It's

Patricia and her dog, Jinxy.

0:12:240:12:28

Pleased to meet you, Patricia.

Pleased to meet you.

Hello, Jinxy.

0:12:280:12:32

You're gorgeous.

So why is Jinxy here today?

0:12:320:12:35

Jinxy got blood given to him.

0:12:350:12:37

Oh, wow, so Jinxy's life was saved

by blood donor dogs just like yours?

0:12:370:12:41

That's amazing.

So, Patricia, what happened?

0:12:410:12:44

Jinxy became very sick

and had to have an operation

0:12:440:12:47

and he was given blood.

Wow.

0:12:470:12:50

And it looks like he is doing

very well.

0:12:500:12:52

Is that right?

0:12:520:12:54

He is very well now so,

really, his life has been saved.

0:12:540:12:57

Fantastic, shall we go

and have a play then?

Yes.

Come on!

0:12:570:13:01

Come on, guys, come on!

0:13:010:13:02

Come on. What a good boy. Yeah.

0:13:070:13:10

Autumn, your dogs do an incredible

job, don't they?

Yes.

0:13:180:13:21

I have loved meeting you.

0:13:210:13:23

Brooke, Suri, Grace and River, oh,

and, of course, Jinxy as well.

0:13:230:13:27

Thank you for coming, Rory.

Oh, you are very welcome.

0:13:270:13:30

I hope you enjoyed finding out all

about these very special dogs too.

0:13:300:13:35
