‘Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER’ is an American television series that airs on Nat Geo Wild. It first premiered on October 4, 2014. The show is a reality documentary that has been directed by Guy Nickerson and is presented by Art Edmonds and Josh Goodman. Spectrum Productions is the company backing the project, while Alycia Christodoulou, Jacob Akira Okada, and Matthew James Williams are producers of the show.
Unscripted Reality TV is a wide spectrum of media that range from casual entertainment to informative shows that follow a single-camera documentary format. Much of it falls in the former end, rife with stereotypes and oversimplifying their subject matters to appeal to a wider section of the audience – many of the faux-documentaries on survivalist strategies in the wild modeled after ‘Man vs. Wild‘, fall in this category.
On the more informative side, there are shows on vocations, a circle which is dominated by casualized accounts of things like car-flipping or reconstruction projects. But when it comes to shows like ‘The Supervet’ or ‘Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER’, the shows actually become able to maintain the perfect balance between a constant stream of useful and otherwise overlooked information on pets – our fluffy friends that are so integral to our daily lives – and a good measure of entertainment.
On that note, ‘Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER’ follows the veterinarians and staff who work at the Broward Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital, which is located in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The show garnered a solid fan following, considering how much people in the USA love their pets and led to another series titled ‘Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER: Gloves Off!’, which consists of the enhanced episodes of the original season.
Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER Cast: Who’s in it?
The plot of ‘Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER’ follows the day-to-day activities of the veterinary surgeons and staff of the Broward Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital in Florida, as they treat the admitted pets and exotic animals. Because of this, the staff of the hospital is front and center in the show. The most important surgeons in the office are Dr. Susan Kelleher, and Dr. Lauren Thielen, who take up the most screen presence. As the narrators, we have heard the voice of ‘Hollywood Scandals’ and ‘Living Big Sky’ star Josh Goodman for the last couple of seasons (Art Edmonds was the host for the debut season). There are other doctors who appear on the show as well, and they all rely on veterinary technicians to help them do their jobs.
In the upcoming season, it is highly likely that all the doctors will return, along with the supporting staff. There may even be new doctors who join the facility and enter the limelight as part of the show.
