Bondi Vet is an Australian factual television series. It follows the lives of veterinary surgeon Chris Brown at the Bondi Junction Veterinary Hospital (near Bondi Beach), and emergency veterinarian Lisa Chimes at the Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH), in the Sydney suburb of North Ryde.
Also featured on Bondi Vet are Andrew Marchevsky, a specialist surgeon at SASH, and Tim Faulkner of the Australian Reptile Park at Somersby on the New South Wales central coast.
The series first broadcast on 5 February 2009, with the first two full seasons averaging a rating of 0.93 million viewers in the five capital cities. Bondi Vet is now in its seventh season. The series airs on Network Ten on Saturday night from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Bondi Vet can also be seen on Network Ten on Wednesday morning from 11.00am to 12.00pm. Since 28 September 2013 the show is seen on Saturday mornings in the United States on the CBS network, under the title of "Dr. Chris: Pet Vet."
In March 2017, Brown announced he was stepping down as host due to an extensive schedule. The series production company, WTFN Entertainment, are currently searching for a new host. The company reported it had received over 800 nominations in just a week of the announcement and revealed they will choose the Top 10 people and the public will get to decide on who will be the next Bondi Vet.
