6 Week Documentary Aired on ABC1 in July 2013

This compelling new series followed the lives of eight young hopefuls who share the lifelong dream of becoming a vet. For the 5th year students coming to the end of a gruelling course, the time has come for them to be unleashed onto the busy wards of Murdoch University’s state-of-the-art teaching hospital. The students face an intense crash course in every medical and emotional hurdle a vet may face in a whole career. For the 4th years it’s the “Year from Hell” with over 70 hours of intense lectures, practicals and coursework every week. From major surgery on a dog to the proverbial hand up a cow’s back side, this unflinching series captures all the triumph and tragedy these young vets experience in the run up to their final year.
