VETERINARIANS JUGGLE FAMILY, ANIMALS AND BUSINESS ON ANIMAL PLANET’S “THE VET LIFE” PREMIERING SATURDAY, JUNE 4 AT 9PM ET/PT
Equal parts laughter and drama, THE VET LIFE follows veterinarians, Dr. Diarra Blue, Dr. Aubrey Ross and Dr. Michael Lavigne, as they navigate the balancing act of running their newly-opened animal hospital while managing the everyday stress of raising their families alongside their wives. The series captures the doctors’ home life with their spouses, children, parents, in-laws, pets and large group of friends.
The three doctors developed a strong friendship while attending Tuskegee University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and reconvened in Las Vegas where they began their careers and honed their surgery skills. After years of paying their dues, they decided to fulfill their dreams of owning their own practice and set their sights on Dr. Ross’ hometown of Houston. In 2015, Cy-Fair Animal Hospital opened its doors to service the community and their pets.
The veterinarians are dedicated to providing the best care for their patients – both human and animal. Dr. Blue’s personality keeps them smiling and in good spirits while Dr. Ross keeps the clinic running during an often hectic work day. Dr. Lavigne is a skilled surgeon who provides balance. With a combined experience of over 22 years and a shared love of animals, Dr. Diarra Blue, Dr. Aubrey Ross and Dr. Michael Lavigne thrive to educate the public about the importance of preventative medicine in order to extend the longevity of the human animal bond.
