VET SCHOOL

ABC1, 8pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

Eight wannabe vets train­ing at Perth’s Mur­doch Univer­sity are fi­nally get­ting to the pointy end of their stud­ies. Their fi­nal year of study puts them into a crash course at the vet teach­ing hos­pi­tal, where all that the­ory must be put into prac­tice. They are quickly learn­ing it’s not just their an­i­mal pa­tients that need treat­ing – it’s also their own­ers. Tonight, fifth- year stu­dent Susie’s first case brings her face- to- face with the cold, hard re­al­ity of cash: just be­cause you can do tests and op­er­ate on an an­i­mal, doesn’t mean you will be able to. Back in fourth- year surgery school, Jade is ag­o­nis­ing over her first in­ci­sion.
