The Vet Life TV Series Animal Planet

Three Tuskegee University grads are going to be living life on the small screen this summer.  Animal Planet will premiere “The Vet Life” TV series Saturday, June 4, 2016, at 9 p.m. EST/8 p.m. CST. The show follows veterinarians Drs. Diarra Blue, Aubrey Ross and Michael Lavigne, balancing their newly-opened animal hospital with family life.

According to an Animal Planet press release, the doctors have been friends since attending Tuskegee University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. They began their careers in Las Vegas, before they decided to open their Texas-based practice CY-Fair Animal Hospital in 2015. The series captures the doctors’ lives as they juggle running a newbusiness while managing their family life filled with spouses, parents, in-laws, children, pets and friends, as well as their intense moments saving the lives of animals at their clinic, the Animal Planet website states.

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, they thrive to educate the public about the importance of preventative medicine in order to extend the longevity of the human and animal bond.

A campus viewing of the new series is scheduled for Thursday, June 2 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. CST at Tuskegee University. The event will be held in Patterson Hall and the three doctors will do a Skype Q&A with students and audience members.
