About the Show
Over the past academic year, Animal Planet shadowed six Penn Vet students with diverse backgrounds and goals as they completed the demanding fourth and final year of their degree program, treating animal patients of all sizes, and learning from pioneers of veterinary medicine.
The result, Life at Vet U, is an exciting, behind-the-scenes docu-series about Penn Vet. The six-part series premiered on Saturday, October 1, 2016, and aired Saturdays at 10pm ET/PT on Animal Planet, with the final episode airing on Saturday, November 4.
“Vet students driven by a mission to heal and protect animals take everything they’ve learned and put it to the test in this series,” said Rich Ross, Group President of Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and Science Channel.
“Life at Vet U gives our viewers a front row seat to this journey.” Life at Vet U was shot on location at Penn Vet's Ryan Hospital for companion animals in Philadelphia, and New Bolton Center hospital for large animals in Kennett Square, PA.
