‘The Adventures of Dr. Buckeye Bottoms’ is a reality series that first premiered on February 18, 2017, on National Geography. The show follows Dr. Bartholomew Buckeye Bottoms, a renowned vet, who offers his services to animals in need.
The main feature that sets this show apart from the others is that Dr. Bottoms does not wait for his patients to come to him.

The Adventures of Dr. Buckeye Bottoms Plot: What is it about?
Dr. Buckeye Bottoms rides his mobile clinic – his truck – and delivers life-saving treatments to animals of all sizes. He generally travels around Hawaii and visits islands like Maui, Lanai, Moloka’i, O’ahu, the Big Island, and Kauai. The show starts off with Dr. Buckeye patching up a horse in Kauai and then traveling to Maui to fix a baby goat with broken legs.
He later receives a call and is informed that his attention is needed in treating really sick pig who has been puking continuously. He visits a local dairy farm and provides medical attention to the cows there. He later helps a billy goat and by the end of Season 1, he treats a pair of cute little guinea pigs.
In Season 2, he performs pedicure to a pig and gives dental treatment to a retired rodeo horse. A dog named Puka needs immediate attention and Dr. Buckeye Bottoms gives him just that. Though, if there is a bright side of being a mobile vet, there’s a dark side too. Dr. Buckeye Bottoms and his dog, Kevin, face difficulty when their truck breaks down in the middle of nowhere in Maui.
Soon he gets out of this trouble and looks to help a miniature service horse. He later performs a difficult surgery on a dog that has been badly injured in a fight. After providing medical treatment and a professional assessment to a dog and farmers in Kauai, respectively, he travels to Maui to perform a sheep castration.
Over the entire season, the audience witnesses Dr. Buckeye Bottoms visiting different places in a single day and treating different animals like goats, dogs, horses, and sheep, who are suffering from different injuries and diseases.
