Friday, 8pm, ABC1 Almost any series that zeroes in on pets is a winner. Bondi Vet has a huge following and was a hot favourite with my dog, Ernie the Dingo, even before we moved in around the corner (coincidentally). Vet School is a six-part series that follows a group of students in their last years at Murdoch University; tonight they’re putting all that theory into practice as they hit the uni’s busy wards, which deal with about 100 sick and injured animals a day. It can be heartbreaking work; Susie must decide what to do about Bailey, who has been hit by a car; Isaac, 12, is devastated he may lose his best mate. Susie contemplates the worst. It’s a terrible decision to have to make but, as a vet said as he put my 18-year-old kelpie, Aussie, to sleep: ‘‘ I hope when my time comes I’m surrounded by as much love as this dog.’’ Vet science can be a rewarding and lucrative career; about 700 Australian graduates last year think so anyway.
