"The Vet Life," formerly known as "Texas Vets," is a reality docu-series on Animal Planet.

Equal parts laughter and drama, this series follows three veterinarians — Dr. Diarra Blue, Dr. Aubrey Ross and Dr. Michael Lavigne — as they navigate the balancing act of running their newly-opened animal hospital while managing the everyday stress of raising their families alongside their wives. The series captures the doctors' home life with their spouses, children, parents, in-laws, pets and large group of friends.

The three doctors developed a strong friendship while attending Tuskegee University's College of Veterinary Medicine and reconvened in Las Vegas where they began their careers and honed their surgery skills. After years of paying their dues, they decided to fulfill their dreams of owning their own practice and set their sights on Dr. Ross' hometown of Houston. In 2015, Cy-Fair Animal Hospital opened its doors to service the community and their pets.

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, Dr. Diarra Blue, Dr. Aubrey Ross and Dr. Michael Lavigne thrive to educate the public about the importance of preventative medicine in order to extend the longevity of the human animal bond.



Season 2

In the sophomore season, the doctors' competitive comraderie is in full force as they build and expand the scope of Cy Fair Animal Hospital. After treating an escaped tiger last year, Dr. Ross one ups Dr. Blue again, this time with baby kangaroos. Not to be outdone by his partner, Dr. Blue claims bragging rights when a baby goat and pig are brought into his exam room. Meanwhile, Dr. Lavigne stays above the fray and saves the life of a family mastiff and performs a complicated surgery on a pit mix. On the personal front, it's finally time for Dr. Ross and his wife Tauvia to move out of his mom's house and buy a home of their own. Dr. Blue gets inspired by a client to start riding motorcycles again but his passion is put on hold when his brother suffers a serious health issue. Dr. Lavigne and his wife Anne are navigating changes as well as she explores a new career while raising two teenage kids.
