Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this British show's adult characters often carry shotguns for protection from wild animals, and hunters occasionally shoot and kill wildlife for sport. A veterinarian uses a tranquilizer gun to sedate injured animals from afar, and their injuries (bone breaks, puncture wounds, etc.) are shown up close. A young boy also uses the weapons -- in one case, he opens fire on hyenas that are trying to kill a monkey; in another, he draws a tranquilizer gun on school bullies. The parents' attempts to create harmony in a newly blended family is an ongoing theme of the series. Violence and tense encounters with wild animals make this one iffy for young tweens.

Sexual Content

In one scene, a woman tells a man that hunting wild animals implies that he's compensating for a small penis.


The series centers on an animal hospital, so scenes of injured, bloody animals are common. Guns are also prevalent: Adults carry shotguns for protection in the wild, and the veterinarian uses a tranquilizer gun to sedate animals. In one scene, a boy draws a tranquilizer gun on bullies at school; in another, he shoots at hyenas killing a monkey.


"Hell," "ass," and "s--t" (unbleeped) are used intermittently.

Social Behavior

A newly blended family struggles for cohesion. Both parents are devoted to creating a positive atmosphere for their kids, but the difficulties wear on them at times, and the dad especially shows frustration. In one scene, a boy takes a tranquilizer gun to school to wield at bullies who are tormenting him, and he suffers nearly no repercussions. A teenage girl makes an obscene hand gesture at her stepmom.
