These two best mates share a love of animals and are the stars of Village Vets Australia.
Dr Ant and Dr James
Dr Anthony Bennett and Dr James Carroll are best mates and the stars of Village Vets Australia on The LifeStyle Channel. Set in the picturesque Shoalhaven region of NSW, the series follows Anthony and James as they run their three veterinary clinics and tend to the animals and pets of the close knit communities they have become an integral part of.
On a fateful February day in 2000 – their first day of university – Anthony Bennett and James Carroll met and forged a lifelong friendship. After five years of study, they both graduated in 2004 from Sydney University with First Class Honours.
Anthony moved to Berry where he worked at the Berry Vet Clinic before taking a half share in the practice, while James spent time working in Northern NSW before travelling to work in the UK.

Forming an unbeatable partnership, Anthony and James ran the clinics in Berry and Kangaroo Valley before opening a third practice, All Creatures Clinic, in the coastal town of Shoalhaven Heads last year. Their days are currently spent managing dairy cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, alpaca and horses, as well as the myriad of small animals that enter their clinics every day.
