TBS (Sun., Nov. 17, 9 p.m. ET)
Every day brings life-and-death decisions to University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine, where the patients include Anna Rose, a cat with seizures; Choqui, a passed-out pup who downed a pint of vodka; and Charlie Girl, a Labrador retriever who swallowed a battery from a TV remote. Their worried owners get expert advice and sympathy from the clinic’s dedicated doctors, who can handle anything from a sickly llama to a nervous dog (he gets behavior modification and Valium). Narrator Lauren Hutton comes across as a mite cool and distant in this better-than-lktion special, but otherwise it’s irresistible. Our cat Lester liked it a lot too.
