More heart-warming tales of life as a vet from TV vet Luke Gamble, this time travelling farther afield from his West Country base to exotic locations around the world.
No longer a newbie vet, Luke Gamble takes over Pilgrims veterinary practice in Dorset and establishes an international veterinary charity, Worldwide Veterinary Service, which takes him across the world in defence of injured and maltreated animals.
Alongside his forays into foreign parts, there are the usual assortment of small and large animals (and their owners!) to keep Luke busy at home.

There's something rather endearing about Gamble's zest for life and his deep love of animals, which imbue his stories with authenticity and humour and make one feel lazy and unfulfilled, even when the characters and their four-legged friends raise a smile - Daily Mail
Luke Gamble graduated from Bristol University in 1999 as a vet before specialising in large animal medicine and surgery at Cambridge. Primarily based in his New Forest practice, his extra-curricular work with the Worldwide Veterinary Service charity (which he founded in 2003) takes him further afield. He also runs an emergency service for animals in Dorset and a pet travel company.
Alongside his veterinary endeavours, Luke is a black belt in karate, has run the Marathon Des Sables (for charity and to impress his wife) and in 2010 was awarded the James Herriot Award by the British Small Animal Veterinary Association for outstanding contributions to the welfare of companion animals.
Luke is married to a vet and lives in New Forest with his three children, Angel the ridgeback and a bossy rescue cat called Charlie.
