‘Animal Heroes’ follows progress from the parade grounds of the UK to the frontlines of Afghanistan, entering the world of the young soldiers who train and serve with the dogs that are credited with saving hundreds of British lives.

The music score provides a sensitive heroic and emotional backdrop to the incredible stories of the British service men and women who are risking life and limb for their country and we meet the four-legged friends who are working at their side.

With access to the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, the series shows at close quarters the vital work the animals do, and how they are trained and looked after by the unit’s team of veterinary surgeons, handlers and nurses dedicated to the welfare of the 1500 animals serving in the military.
