Publisher's Summary

From his childhood love of animals, through his training and first steps in the profession and the pressures and challenges faced by vets, dealing with unexpected exotic pets - and handling excitable humans too - Julian Norton has seen all sides of the veterinary world and writes about it all with humour and affection.

Just as happy calving a cow, treating a dehydrated chameleon or tending to the overgrown teeth of a rabbit, his passion for his work shines through in every chapter, as does his love for Yorkshire. With a foreword by James Herriott's son Jim Wight, Julian's story brings to life the world of the working vet and the highs and lows he and his colleagues face on a daily basis.

Riveting

I really enjoyed this audio book, funny, entertaining and enthralling. Loved the stories especially the kitten one. Knowing the colour of the object swelled straight away was hilarious.
