An­i­mal in­stincts pay off

com­ing into the clinic to say hi and they’re from Brazil it does spin your head a bit,’’ Brown says with a laugh.

Be­ing Aus­tralia’s most fa­mous vet has other ben­e­fits. Brown is now a reg­u­lar on The 7PM Project and is tipped to make ap­pear­ances on Ten’s new Break­fast.

But it is ob­vi­ous Brown treats the show­biz life with the right amount of dis­dain.

‘‘ I do a job I love and it is rare when I’m not in the vet clinic four or five days a week,’’ he says.

‘‘ At the same time, I love new chal­lenges and The 7PM Project has brought that. It doesn’t leave much time for any­thing else.

‘‘ It is a re­ally stim­u­lat­ing mix that uses ev­ery part of my brain ev­ery day.’’

Yes, but surely mak­ing it big in the US holds some al­lure?

You can’t help but think Brown has the looks and the charm to repli­cate Jamie Durie or Cur­tis Stone’s US suc­cess.

‘‘ The USA is cer­tainly some­thing I’ve had dis­cus­sions about,’’ he says.

‘‘ There has been some in­ter­est in the show in the States but it is an in­cred­i­bly hard mar­ket to crack.

‘‘ For the show to be aired over there would be great and it is some­thing I’ve done a lot of work to­wards.

‘‘ I like the idea of work­ing in the States, but I’m so busy here that find­ing the time is the hard­est chal­lenge of all.’’ Bondi Vet, Chan­nel 10, tonight, 8pm
