Description
"Karen Fine always knew that she wanted to be a vet and wasn't going to let anything stop her: not her allergy to cats, and not the fact that in the '80s veterinary medicine was still a mostly male profession. Inspired by her grandfather, Dr. Fine persevered, and brought her Oupa's principles into her own practice, which emphasizes the need to understand her patients' stories to provide the best possible care. In The Other Family Doctor, Dr. Fine shares touching, joyful, heartbreaking, and life-affirming tales that make up her career as a vet. There's the feral cat who becomes a creature out of a fable when he puts his trust in a young vet to heal his injured paw, the pot-bellied pig who grows too big to fit in the car but remains a cherished part of her family, the surprising colony of perfectly behaved ferrets, the beloved aging pet who gives her people the gift of accompanying them on one final family vacation, and the dog who saves his owner's life in a most unexpected way. Woven into Dr. Fine's story are, of course, also the stories of her own pets: the birds, cats, and dogs who have taught her the most valuable lessons -- how caring for the animals in our lives can teach us to better care for ourselves, especially when life seems precarious."--,Provided by publisher.
