Masaki Nishine (Yoshizawa) is a high school student studying for college entrance examinations. One day, while walking through the campus of a nearby H University's School of Veterinarian Science with his best friend Nikaido (Kaname), he comes across a little puppy with a face of a female demon, the type one sees in a Noh mask. At the same time, a mysterious professor wearing a funny-looking outfit appears and makes a strange prophecy, "You will become a vet in the future!" Not only that, he forces the puppy (which turned out to be an expensive Siberian husky) on Masaki. Nikaido names the puppy Chobi without even asking his buddy for approval. The pup becomes a member of the Nishine Family, along with Miké, a bossy female cat kept by Masaki's grandmother Taka (played by Kyoko Kishida), and a violent cock named Hiyo-chan. Soon after, Chobi falls sick and Masaki takes the dog to a vet where they meet the mysterious professor Urushihara (Emori) again. As if spellbound, the two men take the entrance exam for H University's School of Veterinarian Science. Both pass the test and begin attending the school. What awaited them, however, were a group of patients—all animals, of course—and a faculty of ultra-individualistic professors including Urushihara.
