What could be more exciting and rewarding than keeping both a family and a zoo together! This is what fills the days and nights of the attractive young Zoo Doctor Susanne Mertens, who courageously devotes herself heart and soul to her turbulent work and family.

In „Zoo Doctor,“ the furry, feathered and scaly residents of the Leipzig Zoo all turn on the charm and give winningly natural performances. In fact, they even compete with the engaging human stars for our attention and our hearts. An ideal program for the whole family, „Zoo Doctor“ always provides the right dose of wit, warmth and drama to keep viewers eagerly awaiting Susanne's next office hours!

Additional Information

Susanne Mertens, daughter of the director of the Leipzig Zoo, loves animals and studied veterinary medicine. And what has it brought her? A weekly „pet checkup“ hour at her son Jonas‘s school. Understandably, she‘s delighted when the zoo‘s resident vet asks her if she‘d like to help him out. But is it a wish come true for Susanne – or the key to a Pandora‘s box of family problems? Susanne decides to give it a try, and so begins her career in the wild: tracking down what‘s ailing her patients... battling the profit-obsessed administrator... lovingly attending to the animals and humans in her care.
