What to expect
Honest and heart-warming account of the highs and lows of life as a vet, by lovable rising TV star.
Rory speaks frequently on animal welfare, mental health and is known for his open, heartfelt approach to his work.
Rory has had a passion for animals for as long as he can remember. He grew up in the countryside surrounded by animals and it was always his ambition to be a vet. He now works in a busy London practice where his very honest and often emotional relationships with the animals he treats and their owners has made him the relatable and approachable face of veterinary work.
In an era when doctors and nurses are talking more openly about the realities of saving human lives, Rory shows what a vital service vets offer in caring for the animals that often form the very heart of the household. He describes the demanding experience of veterinary school, and offers a very human take on what it’s like to treat animals, and the little talked about mental health implications that this pressured life or death industry holds.
