In the premiere episode, which aired Sunday Feb. 24th  9/8c, Dr. K and her skilled staff discover what’s ailing exotic animals like an adorable Fennec Fox and a colorful Macaw.

As you know, I’m Stewie, the Art Expert Cat. As a tough orange cat, I would normally try to fight the glorious creatures who wind up in her E.R. but after getting to know the intelligent Dr. K and seeing all of the art involved in her veterinary practice, like deft scalpel work, x-rays and luscious colors, I decided to write about this exciting show instead. Read on to see what I mean. Photos are all from the Feb. 24th episode.
