Wild Vets

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Wed­nes­day, 7pm, Seven Seven must have a great deal of faith in this pro­gram from New Zealand about vet­eri­nar­i­ans who treat that coun­try’s zoo an­i­mals, be­cause from tonight it’s run­ning nightly at 7pm. In zoos and wildlife parks across New Zealand, vets of­fer ul­tra­sounds to rhi­nos, re­pair the eyes of blinded ex­otic crea­tures, take chimps for brain scans and op­er­ate on pen­guins. Tonight, den­tistry on a very cranky lion named Max, who has been drib­bling since in­fected teeth were re­moved three months be­fore. Are those lemurs in love, or is it war? Also, vet Lisa steps up to the task of tak­ing blood from a gi­raffe. All very sweet but with only a tenth of the charisma of Ten’s

Bondi Vet. Really, Seven? Five nights a week in prime time? Who would have guessed this was the off-rat­ings sea­son?
