Taking care of animals is absolutely rewarding, but it's not easy. It requires time and dedication, and more importantly, knowing how to handle an unfamiliar one without being scared. For those who pursue their love for animals and choose to be veterinarians, the responsibility is far greater. After all, how else does one take care of an animal without being able to communicate, all while trying to gain their trust?

The challenge is twice as hard for Dr Michelle Oakley. She doesn't exactly fall under that category of domesticating the animals; she's in charge of all the wild residents of the massive Yukon. Be it bears, bison or wolverines, there's nothing Dr Oakley hasn't treated over the years. Now, with Season 9 of 'Dr Oakley, Yukon Vet' premiering soon, she's all set to do what she does best —help animals.
