Animal Planet announced that it will feature a docu-series tentatively titled “Penn Vet.” The show will follow a group of fourth-year veterinary students from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine. The featured students will be of diverse backgrounds, according to PennVet, and show them in handling companion animals at Ryan Hospital in Philadelphia and large animals at New Bolton Center Hospital in Kennett Square. The competitive veterinary school treats over 30,000 patients each year from dogs and cats to iguanas and zebras and just about everything in between.

Rich Ross, Group President of Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Science Channel, said of the docu-series, “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. Penn Vet will give our viewers a front row seat to this journey.”
