“Pet Doctor in the House (Yomiuri TV),” premieres on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m.
As a veterinarian, Kentaro Shiba — or Shibaken (as he is known by everyone in town) — saves pets’ lives. But he is also known as a busybody because he worries equally about the pet’s owners.
When he sees someone in trouble, he can’t leave them alone. He’ll do whatever he can to help them out.
To some people, Shibaken is a little bit of a pain. But it’s because he cares as much about the owners of the pets as he does about the pets.
