Publisher's Summary

This first book by the much-loved stars of TV's Village Vets is the unforgettable, hilarious, heartwarming and hair-raising adventures of two country vets, the animals they treat and the characters they meet.

Best mates since they met on their first day at uni, Anthony Bennett and James Carroll both dreamed of working with animals from the time they were young. Committed to and passionate about caring for creatures great and small, they share a mischievous sense of humour and a wonder for life that charms both animals and owners alike.

Warm, funny and fascinating, Village Vets chronicles the lives of these two young Aussie vets before they were famous - their adventures here in Australia and overseas will delight readers of all ages. There are stories of crazy cats, cranky cows, rude cockatoos, unexpected outcomes and miraculous recoveries. They have worked with every animal imaginable - operating on guinea pigs and euthanasing a pet fish, treating a horse that had lost its foot and fixing a prolapsed cow with a piece of polypipe.

As much about the people they meet as about the animals, Village Vets is an unforgettable insight into the heartache and joy of life as a country vet.

Enjoyable light book

I bought this book because I’m a big fan of James Herriot.This book was quite different. The stories were less funny or clever but still enjoyable, especially in the middle and the end when their careers are more developed. The vets lead interesting lives and I enjoyed learning more about their world.

Village vets

I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I loved the setting. I learned a lot about becoming and being a vet in Australia. And it was funny.

Worth a listen

Would you listen to Village Vets again? Why?

I would listen again, good stories along the lines of James Herriot

What about Anthony Bennett and James Carroll ’s performance did you like?

Narration was good as you got to know the voices it helped you follow the stories.
