Animal Practice is an American television sitcom created by Alessandro Tanaka and Brian Gatewood which revolves around Dr. George Coleman, a top New York veterinarian with an impressive list of famous animal patients who despises the owners of the pets.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 12 August to 24 October, 2012. Although nine episodes were produced, only six aired before the show was cancelled, with the remaining three episodes airing online.

Synopsis

Animal Practice is a comedy centering on Dr. George Coleman (Justin Kirk), a top veterinarian with an impressive list of famous animal patients at the Crane Animal Hospital - a bustling New York City veterinary practice where it often seems as if the patients are running the place.

Despite his unorthodox style, George has an undeniable gift with animals of all kinds - except the human kind.

Much to his chagrin, George recently learned that his ex-girlfriend, Dorothy Crane (Joanna Garcia), has inherited the family business and is now George's boss. Whip-smart and ambitious, Dorothy shakes up the hospital as she brings order to the chaos and butts heads with George's animal-friendly administration.

Tyler Labine plays Dr. Doug Jackson, a vet who's great with animals, but hapless in matters of the heart; Bobby Lee stars as Dr. Yamamoto; Kym Whitley stars as Juanita; and newcomer Betsy Sodaro stars as Nurse Angela.

Dr. Rizzo, the resident capuchin monkey at Crane Animal Hospital and George's closest companion is played by Crystal the Monkey.

Executive producers are Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II, Old School) and Ravi Nandan (Best Friends Forever) of American Work Inc., along with Emmy Award winners Joe & Anthony Russo (Community, Arrested Development), as well as Marco Pennette (Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty).

Animal Practice was written by Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka (The Sitter), who also serve as executive producers. Animal Practice is a production of Universal Television and American Work Inc.
