Helping animals in a war zone

Now, you might not think being a vet is a particularly dangerous job - but for Captain Miles Malone, helping animals means working in a war zone,

He's treated around 8,000 animals during his time in Afghanistan.

Normally he spends his time looking after the dogs used by the army to sniff out roadside bombs.

But now he's going to help local farmers in really remote villages, who are worried about their animals.
