The Supervet is a Channel 4 TV Series, now in its third series, about Irish-born Vet Noel Fitzpatrick, a pioneer in neuro-orthopaedics, constructing custom-made bionic limbs for pets.
It follows on from an earlier series called the Bionioc Vet. He has received worldwide recognition and won many awards for his work, including the RSPCA Animal Hero Award in the nnovative Business category.
Originally from a cattle and sheep farm background in Ballyfin, Co Laois, he now operates a multi-million pound state-of-the-art small animal referral practice called Fitzpatrick Referrals located in a complex of converted farm buildings in Eashing, Surrey., which is widely recognised as providing the most advanced and innovative diagnostic and rehabilitation facilities for small animal Neurology, Orthopaedics, Oncology and Soft tissue medicine in the UK.
He is also opening a cancer hospital for pets (Europe's first) near Guildford, which includes a chemotherapy suite, four operating theatres, and a state-of-the-art CT machine. 172 people will work at the hospital, and overall there will be space for more than 144 patients. (See The Telegraph link below.)
Separately, and at the same time, he is founding a new charity called The Humanimal Trust http://www.humanimaltrust.org.uk/, and is organising the "ONE LIVE Music Festival" as a fundraiser for the charity (see below).
