FORGET the white sands of Bondi Beach, Morley’s streets could play host to the next Bondi Vet television series.

When heartthrob vet Chris Brown retired after eight seasons, production company WTFN started a nationwide search for experienced vets who could work on the show or anchor their own series.

Morley Vetcentre vet Marty Wray (28) has thrown his stethoscope into the ring and hopes to bring stories of Morley’s pets to the small screen.

Murdoch University graduate Dr Wray said a chance to bring the show to Perth would be “amazing”.

“The opportunity to go to Perth Zoo, wildlife sanctuaries, would be really cool and show off our clients in Morley and share their stories,” he said.

“I thought ‘Vet in the West’ could be a good name maybe.”

The UK and New Zealand-raised vet said he has met some very interesting people and pets during his three years at the Morley centre.

“You just never know day-to-day what’s going to happen or walk through the door,” he said.

“Yesterday we had three emergencies come in so you have to think on your toes.”

Dr Wray said he mainly cared for cats and dogs, as well as rabbits and guinea pigs and a couple of native creatures like snakes.

According to WTFN, the nation’s favourite would receive a program development deal, the first step to starring in a show.

On the Bondi Vet website, Dr Wray is currently ranked most popular.
