 The fourth season of "Dr. K's Exotic Animal ER" premiers this at 10 p.m. this Saturday, April 22, on Nat Geo Wild.   For those who don’t know, Dr. K is Susan Kelleher, DVM, a 1991 alumna of Alfred University (and subject of a feature story in the next Alfred Magazine.)


Make sure you tune in for two reasons: First, ratings this weekend will determine if the show continues for another season, and second because Dr. K will be wearing her Alfred University swag this season!  “I'm wearing my Alfred University sweat shirt this season! It's always very cold in the exam rooms and I always wear a sweatshirt,” she said. “My Nat Geo Wild one got two holes torn in it by macaws so I decided to sport my AU one!”


“Alfred University will always be very dear to my heart,” she said. “I completely credit AU Chemistry department for making me the veterinarian I am, not my vet school. I learned how to THINK and problem solve at AU.”
