Does anyone else watch the Supervet??

I'm on a pretty sleepless night at the mo, so watching him again. What a simply amazing vet, he is truly phenomenal.
He is truly blessed for saving so many animals from emdless pain and suffering, love him to bits x

I remember seeing that one V, he's amazing. Wasnt that the one where the owner had been to his own vet who had just patched it up and sent him to Noel? The lengths he goes to to save animals is incredible.

Noel is I believe a vet that you have to be 'referred to' by another vet .. The name of his practice is 'Fitzpatrick Referrals'

A brilliant vet. No, he's more than brilliant! Love watching.

I've often idly wondered whether the levels of equipment in his operating theatre and the hygiene standards he observes surpass those found in some hospitals for humans.

"Noel is I believe a vet that you have to be 'referred to' by another vet .. The name of his practice is 'Fitzpatrick Referrals'"

Hope you can see the quote marks Trev!

I didn't realise that it was a referral clinic. Whatever, he is a great and caring man.

There is no denying that Noel is a brilliant but watching him on the sofa in Crufts 2018 I was very disappointed he never answered one question Claire Balding asked he was on a one man quest with his “one medicine”
Fitzpatrick Referrals is a multi million pound investment with technology and vets that are outstanding in their field.......I hope he holds onto what he initially believed in and that TV fame his one man shows haven’t turned his head........

Whilst I cannot deny that there is a huge opportunity to make money in veterinary care, I have to say that in all the programmes I have watched concerning Noel Fitzpatrick I have never felt that money was his overriding concern. His care for the animals is beyond the pale. If you have any evidence to support your concerns iwould love to see it. Unitil then I will continue to believe that this man's main concern is the welfare of the animals in his care. If he is making money for this so what? The welfare of the animals is the main concern.

The topic of treament cost is never discussed in any of his TV programmes and with good reason: because it would distract from the primary purpose of the programme which is to highlight the ground-breaking treatments which Prof. Noel Fitzpatrick has uniquely pioneered and makes available to all.

I have no doubt that Prof. Noel's clinic charges top dollar (and so it should), but it is clear that pet owners are willing to pay these fees, for pets which are part of most peoples family. And it is probable that pet insurance picks up at least part of the tab.

So far as I am aware Prof. Noel does not indulge in grand mansions, ocean-going yachts or other boys toys and from what I have read he mostly lives, sleeps and eats at his clinic. It should surely be evident to the most casual observer that Prof. Noel invests his clinic's income in state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, without which he would not enjoy the success which he does. It is also evident he invests heavily in top calibre associate veterinarians and technicians and is continually expanding his facilities to now include so many different forms of animal treatment, including cancer.

I.m.o you would have to be very mean-spirited to criticise either him or the work his clinic carries out.
