As a veterinary student approaches the end of training, and then starts that first job in practice, there is a sense not only of achievement and fulfilment but also of terror and self-doubt. Few of us will ever again be as knowledgeable about all aspects of the care, diseases and treatment of horses, cows, sheep, pigs, cats and dogs as we were at the time of graduation. Unfortunately, there is a seventh species to contend with: the clients.

Vet Noir

In the memoir Vet Noir, a seasoned veterinarian humorously recounts stories of animals she treated and the people who loved them.

In the memoir Vet Noir, a seasoned veterinarian humorously recounts stories of animals she treated and the people who loved them. Robin Truelove Stronk owned her own veterinary practice in Vermont with her husband for twenty-four years where she often dealt with clients who expected too much, listened too little, arrived too late, and sometimes just fainted. With an entertaining style, Dr. Stronk shares not only her own professional challenges, but also the unique expectations of the animals' owners. From a New England dairy farmer who expected her to strip to the waist to assist his cow with a difficult birth, to the distraught owner who held her guinea pig up to the telephone so the veterinarian could hear the noise her pet was making, Dr. Stronk's anecdotes illuminate the delightful, sometimes tortuous, and very often amusing relationships between a pet, its owner, and the veterinarian. Vet Noir provides a light-hearted glimpse into the world of veterinary medicine where animals are unconditionally loved and the people are kind beyond measure, dedicated, and splendidly appreciative mostly when they are not being quirky, infuriating, and more often than not, unknowingly comical.

In Alisa Merlin's Secrets to Lower Vet Bills, Alisa shows the average pet owner how to save money at the vet and improve the health and happiness of their pets. Alisa has over 25 years of experience as a Veterinary Technician and Pet Care Coach. Her inexpensive and easy to follow pet care tips, at-home treatments and nutritional guidance will help pets of all ages. Most pet owners never realize: All animals get fleas-even the cleanest, indoor only ones. The majority of pet owners are shortening the lives of their beloved companions by over vaccinating them. There are seven signs of a good veterinarian. A good vet will save you money. There are three questions to always ask your vet that will save you money and help you make any treatment decisions for your pet, even the ultimate one. Alisa's regular visits to the pets of the biggest stars in Hollywood have been instrumental to keeping their pets healthy. While not every pet owner can afford the same level of pampering, every owner can benefit from the same inexpensive, preventive care. "I am on a mission to enrich the lives of all pets by educating their human companions. I have four cats and two dogs. Everyday I deal with celebrity clients, temperamental vets, and LA freeways. I have been bitten, scratched and barked at, sometimes even by the animals."

A lot of material has been written about pet care and the human-animal bond. We have been taking care of our pets better and better every year. The author, Dr. Hector Carbonell, wanted to write something that celebrates the unique bond he has with his clients, as they mutually take care of the star of the office visit: the pet. This book is about things that you and your veterinarian might discuss if time was not a factor. He wishes that optimum care can be delivered, and a friendly relationship cultivated in the exam room and beyond, without economics imposing its limits. It tackles concerns such as how to find a hospital that meets your expectations, how to save money on prescriptions, DYI skills, and other common ideas. A chapter called "It is Darkest Before Dawn" also delves deep into questions you might have but were afraid to ask; such as cranky employees, animal abuse, internet pharmacies, high prices, hospital staff drug problems, compassion fatigue, and others. You owe it to your pet to protect his health and welfare. All proceeds from this book will benefit humane societies, animal shelters, and other charitable causes.

Stress. It's the single, universal cause of both wellness and illness. While this theory is widely supported in the human medical community, it's still controversial among veterinarians. Dr. Paul McCutcheon examines the all-important health-stress connection while drawing upon the latest scientific thinking and combining it with a comprehensive, preventive, and holistic philosophy of pet care. So if you're among the millions of caring, responsible pet owners who visits the vet more often than your own doctor but still wonders what more you can do for your dog or cat, The New Holistic Way for Dogs & Cats is the next best thing to a consultation with Dr. McCutcheon. If only he saw human patients in his practice, too! From the Trade Paperback edition.

View: 589

Offering a candid behind-the-scenes look at small-animal veterinary practices, Blue Juice explores the emotional and ethical conflicts involved in providing a "good death" for companion animals. Patricia Morris presents a nuanced ethnographic account of how veterinarians manage patient care and client relations when their responsibility shifts from saving an animal's life to negotiating a decision to end it. Using her own experiences and observations in veterinary settings as well as the voices of seasoned and novice vets, Morris reveals how veterinarians think about euthanasia and why this "dirty work" often precipitates "burnout," moral quandaries, and even tense or emotional interactions with clients. Closely observing these interactions, Morris illuminates the ways in which euthanasia reflects deep and unresolved tension in human-animal relationships. Blue Juice seeks to understand how practitioners, charged with the difficult task of balancing the interests of animals and their humans, deal with the responsibility of ending their patients' lives.
