    Dr. Pol is one of the rare shows that my wife and I look forward to each week. It leaves a hiatus when the show is over for the season. I hope that the show will be renewed next season and if it is, we would like to know if the date and time will be announced early so we don’t miss an episode.

    his is the most fascinating animal show I’ve ever watched on TV. Dr. Pol is certainly going to be the promoter for many young kids to aspire to Veterinary medicine. What a great program for the whole family.
