Summary
"Through a kaleidoscope of contrasting portraits, author Lee Gutkind chronicles the daily life, motivations, and eccentricities of today's veterinary doctors, their patients, and their patients' human owners. In the spirit of Herriot, Gutkind brings readers into the next generation of the veterinary art, introducing an equally impassioned lot of doctors whose ability to communicate with their patients in a language of touch eliminates the need for words."--BOOK JACKET. "Animal lovers of all kinds will love this book; Gutkind takes us behind the scenes to observe the care given to, and the communication shared with, dogs and cats, horses and elephants, dolphins and reindeer, to name a few. Along the way he explores the ethical dilemmas, creative thinking, and complex challenges involved in a veterinarian's daily work. The intrigue of medical research and diagnosis is woven throughout - from a multimillion-dollar veterinary complex where doctors attempt to discover why a prize racehorse mysteriously quits near the end of every race to a medical facility where researchers study sleep apnea in humans by examining the facial construction of bulldogs. These stories reveal a community of doctors whose unique dedication and compassion may serve as a model for the entire medical profession."--BOOK JACKET
