Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet (9pm, Nat Geo Wild) - It’s the premiere of a new reality series about veterinarian Michelle Oakley, who tends to the animals of the Yukon territory of Canada. In the opener, Dr. Oakley performs a check on a team of sled dogs, gives a fertility exam to a dairy cow, aids a dog with a face full of quills and treats an owl with a broken wing. It airs right after Nat Geo Wild’s popular series about a very “old-school” (i.e. “sometimes hard to watch”) rural Michigan vet, “ The Incredible Dr. Pol.”
