    This is an inside look at a vet's practice.  Mr. Schott writes of the changes in medicine and techniques over the years.  He explains that many of the animal diseases are similar to human diseases.  as the years go by, he gets more and more into high tech.  I learned that they did procedures on animals that I just recently had done to me (MRI).  It's amazing.

    ECW Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

    There are tales of the animals he met, mostly dogs and cats.  He found some dog owners wouldn't listen to him when he suggested getting a smaller dog next time.  But what caught my attention was when he discussed treating a full grown ostrich.  An animal like that could kill you.  What if it didn't like what the vet was doing?

    He tells you about being bitten, about a dog that liked to eat rocks, and many more animal tales.  Being a vet isn't always a boring job...
