Vet star: Dr Peter Ricci has been announced as one of the new Bondi Vets

A vet from The Animal Hospital at Murdoch University has been revealed as one of newest stars of the hit television program, Bondi Vet.

After a nationwide search, Dr Peter Ricci, who works as an Emergency and Critical Care vet at The Animal Hospital at Murdoch University and at the Perth Zoo, won the public vote.

He will be joined by Dr Alex Hynes, Dr Danni Dusek and Dr Lewis Hunt as the new Bondi Vets.

Professor Peter Irwin, Principal of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Murdoch University said Dr Ricci is wonderful veterinarian whose passion for animal care is there for all to see.

“Pete is one of the many outstanding veterinarians we have at The Animal Hospital at Murdoch University, and is an inspiring educator of our veterinary students,” Professor Irwin said.

“We are thrilled for Pete on this well-deserved opportunity and look forward to watching him share his veterinary expertise and infectious personality with the nation and even the world.”

Dr Ricci described The Animal Hospital at Murdoch University is a state-of-the-art facility and teaching institution.

“Teaching is in my blood and I really enjoy teaching Murdoch veterinary students and helping them take their steps towards becoming a vet,” he said.

“I feel privileged to be able to teach the next generation of vets as they enter the veterinary profession.”

Dr Ricci recently travelled with Murdoch University final year veterinary students to provide veterinary care to dogs and cats in remote Indigenous communities in Western Australia.

“I love providing veterinary care to all communities around Australia and with programs such as this, they’re really important to get out there and give back to the community,” added Dr Ricci.

Program producers said a number of media organisations were vying for the new-look Bondi Vet, which would continue to be distributed to more than 180 countries around the world.
