Following the launch of a national search to find Australia’s next TV vet to host Bondi Vet, the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) is reaching out to its 9,000 members and encouraging them to participate.
AVA President Dr Robert Johnson said the TV show is a great opportunity not only for the public to nominate a vet who has made a difference, but to highlight the value the veterinary profession makes to a range of communities and industries across all areas of animal health.
“Veterinary care is a very diverse area of medicine and involves everything from treating obese cats to pet sheep. Vets are responsible for managing phobias in dogs, emerging reptile diseases, global threats to the horse industry, and the future of biosecurity and animal welfare in Australia,” Dr Johnson said.
Daryl Talbot, the CEO of TV production company WTFN—which created Bondi Vet—is delighted to have the support of the AVA in its national search for a new TV vet.
“Ultimately, Bondi Vet is a show about educating people to look after their animals and also focuses on the relationship that they enjoy with them. We respect the core values of the AVA greatly and we are delighted to have their support,” Talbot said.
