Chris Brown is a veterinarian in Australia. He also happens to have movie-star looks and a charming love of all creatures, great and small.

Whether he's chasing squirrels with Faith, an amazing dog who "walks" on only two hind legs, or he's stopping by to check in on a woman who turned her house into a 200-cat sanctuary, or fixing a just-born cockatoo's broken leg, Dr. Chis is calm and upbeat.

And while he's busy working on his cases, his colleague Dr. Lisa Chimes is often back at the animal hospital taking care of more serious cases. In one episode, a foster dog owner was reduced to tears (and so were we) over adorable Olivia, a dog with a heart murmur. Would she survive her heart operation? Yes, of course, she did. And she went on to find a loving home.

Dr. Chris describes himself as a "passionate veterinarian" and we can see that he clearly is. His stories will inspire and educate. It's a delight to watch him in action.
