Summary

For those who call the outback home, healthy animals are the key to surviving and thriving. So the stakes are high for the smart and spirited vets charged with caring for Australia's rural livestock, wildlife and beloved family pets. Meet Jan Allen, who works with camp dogs in remote Indigenous communities in the Top End. In the vast Pilbara, adventurous Rick Fenny cares for the region's beloved nomad kelpie, Red Dog;  in the Victorian High Country, Dave Halls' own life-threatening car accident fired his ambition to help people learn to care well for their animals; in far southwest Queensland, Rachel Wilson and Will Nason vet all the horses at the famous Birdsville Races; and in her mixed practice in north-west NSW, lone vet Mary Jane Stutsell has had seven days off-call in twenty years. Outback Vets is a walk on Australia's wild side, from the glistening coast to the dusty desert. Get to know these gutsy animal lovers as they ride, drive and fly across some of the most remote regions of Australia, rescuing creatures great and small.
