Veterinary “maverick” Dr. Jeff Young and his team of vets and techs returned with an all-new season of DR. JEFF: ROCKY MOUNTAIN VET on Animal Planet (on 26 March 2022). And fans being fans, on seeing him share his workspace with his wife has been curious about her. She is called Dr Petra Young and the rest of the writing is just about her age, net worth, life with her husband, Rocky Mountain Vet escapades, and more.
Dr Petra Young On Rocky Mountain Vet
In the season premiere, Dr. Jeff is shown rolling up his sleeve and heading to Leadville, an old Colorado mining town, to transform an abandoned restaurant into a new clinic. Accompanying him his team of people including his wife, Dr. Petra Young. Here they aim to provide desperately needed vet care to an underserved mountain community, to make vet care affordable for everyone around there.
So, this way, the show continues as Jeff and Petra trade their scalpel for a sledgehammer, and restaurant demolition is underway.
Also this season, viewers get to see Dr. Jeff treat a puppy who needs reconstructive surgery to survive and Dr. Baier remove a fishhook from a wild goose. When clinic receptionist Jerri’s newly adopted puppy becomes seriously ill, Dr. Petra steps in to save the pup’s life. Petra also treats Khalessi, a young golden retriever pup, with a cleft palette that causes her to have a difficult time taking in the food she needs to grow.
And between Dr. Jeff and his team taking on complicated procedures, he digs a swimming pool for his beloved dog Fred. Amid all this. Dr. Jeff and Petra’s daughter Melody also discovers a worrisome mass on her rescued dog Fraya.
Rocky Mountain Vet, however, was not always a walk in the park for Jeff and his wife. They lost money in the first season, and Jeff especially did not enjoy being handled by the film crew. So, at the time, they never anticipated the show to get popular.
And now, despite the new fandom, Dr. Jeff is not negligent of the fact that this venture is not a one-man show. He believes the support of his staff has been incredible.
In the meantime, Dr. Jeff’s viewers have also shown him as much faithfulness; especially during Season 2 when he revealed his cancer diagnosis, B-cell Lymphoma.
Dr. Jedd was diagnosed with cancer after doctors discovered an 8 cm mass in his lung. It was at this time, that he cut his signature shoulder-length graying hair because of the chemo. Hector Martinez, his co-worker/friend since high school, had said it choked him up watching all of it on TV.
Fast forward to now, it is not clear if Jeff has been cancer-free. What we know is he has not let it affect his work. But then the cancer scare did affect people around him.
