A terrible bushfire has struck and Mum's vet clinic is in chaos. Every day more and more injured baby animals arrive. Chelsea and I have never been busier! There's an adorable baby koala to feed by hand, a fat little wombat to bandage, and a funny blue-tongued lizard that Max is determined to make his pet.
