When your pet needs surgery, you drop him off to the doctor, you are reassured that he is in good hands, and the door closes behind you. What really happens during the procedure? Now, Dr. Mark Newkirk of Newkirk Family Veterinarians shows us the instruments, tools and procedures he uses to make sure our pets are safe and come out with flying colors.

Robin Stoloff  talks with Dr. Newkirk at his Egg Harbor Township office for the monthly feature Awesome Animals that airs on Living Well With Robin Stoloff on Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG.
