When successful veterinarian Dr. George Coleman learns that his ex-girlfriend Dorothy Crane has inherited the hospital where he works and is now his boss, he is less than thrilled. George, who would rather spend time with his animal patients than with their human owners, is a stark contrast to the cheerful and optimistic Dorothy, who immediately inserts herself into the hospital business. As the sparks fly between George and Dorothy, the rest of the staff members struggle to maintain composure and do their jobs, including Dr. Doug Jackson, Dr. Yamamoto, Juanita, Nurse Angela and last but not least, "Dr. Rizzo," the resident capuchin monkey at Crane Animal Hospital and George's closest companion.

Meet Dr. George Coleman, a top-dog New York veterinarian. With an unorthodox style of operating, George's success comes from his undeniable gift with animals of all kinds. That is, all but the human kind.
Dorothy Crane once held the key to George's heart, but today she also holds the key to the family business as she takes over Crane Animal Hospital. Not only is she George's new boss, but her romantic history with him (and her lack of experience with animals) is seriously cramping his style.
Dorothy is whip-smart and ambitious, and she's going to make George pay for the past. Needless to say, he's determined not to make any changes in his (animal) kingdom - which includes poker games with a resident chimpanzee.
