Dr. Rick Fenny is no stranger when it comes to road tripping in the outback of Western Australia. One of Australia’s most respected vets, who has cared for thousands of animals including the legendary Red Dog, Rick clocks up more than 5000 kilometres every couple of weeks tending to sick animals and checking in with his team of vet doctors and nurses across WA. His travels over the last 40 years have also made Rick something of an expert when it comes to exploring outback WA and, ahead of a new TV special that chronicles a month on the road as Desert Vet, he's shared some of his favourite experiences.
Nearby, the little known racetrack at Landor in the Gascoyne is best known for its annual horse racing event. I’m the race vet and it’s good to catch up and have a yarn with old friends; it’s a quintessential Australian experience.
