Storyline

The vets visit a modern dairy farm and are left to wonder who benefits from the cold efficiency. Miss Westerman returns with her dog Hamish; Tristan tries to avoid her, given that he misplaced Hamish the last time she put him in the vets' care. She is concerned at the rumors that all dogs will need to be destroyed if war is declared, but Tristan sets her mind to rest. The vets agree to spay a cat for a minimum fee, but find they may have gotten more that they bargained for. Siegfried treats Herbie Hinchcliffe's aging horse Dolly and becomes emotionally involved in the case when he has to put her down. Written by garykmcd
