Best mates since they met on their first day at uni, Anthony Bennett and James Carroll both dreamed of working with animals from the time they were knee high. Little did these down -to-earth country vets know their dreams would find them unlikely TV stars, their larrikinism and genuine affection for the people they met and the animals they treat winning the hearts of Australians everywhere.

Village Vets takes us back to the early years, from their hilarious escapades at university, to their intrepid adventures in the UK and the Australian bush, to setting up their own practice in an idyllic coastal town in the New South Wales. But if you thought country towns were sleepy, think again. Anthony and James have done it all ' operated on guinea pigs and euthanased fish; treated horses that has lost its foot and fixed a prolapsed cow with a pieces of polypipe. And then there was the day that involved four calving's, one severed artery, one fox-bait poisoning, one skewered kelpie, one snakebite and 480 kilometres of driving...

An Australian version of James Herriott's All Creatures Great and Small, Village Vets will by turns charm you, make you laugh out loud and bring a tear to your eye. Join Anthony and James as they take you on an unforgettable journey into the heartache and joy of life as country vets, who are so often up to their armpits in...something!
