Description
In his uplifting and entertaining follow-up to All My Patients Have Tales (a "winning veterinary memoir deserving of space next to the immortal James Herriot and his heirs," according to Booklist), rural Colorado vet Jeff Wells has his work cut out for him from the very first page, when an unvaccinated two-year-old bloodhound-Weimaraner mix named Toby bites his owner and takes off across the highway and into a subdivision.

"Each of the richly detailed vignettes is intense and engaging while accented with vivid characters and a tough realism, leaving you marveling at the author's commitment and resilient, can-do spirit."—Seattle Kennel Club

"Dealing with the unexpected—llamas who don't want their nails trimmed, teenagers looking to get high on feline distemper vaccine, a herd of Scottish Highland cattle trying to protect a calf from the vet—makes for some high-tension reading. There are also moving stories of difficult births and life-saving efforts in nighttime winter snows. Wells weaves in the struggles of his own life and marriage with his wife's successful fight against recurrent cancer, and their adoption of an orphan from Korea. Good-natured, inviting animal tales."—Kirkus Reviews
