In this second collection by the intrepid vet, Jeff Wells has his work cut out for him when he learns that llamas do not take kindly to having their toenails trimmed, dog owners in the medical field can be a real pain, Scottish Highland cattle stick together, and fixing an overly amorous burro often needs to be prioritized.

interesting to what a vet can encounter in a days work. Actually enjoyed more than James Herriot.

Wish there were another 100 pages!

I really enjoyed reading the personal account of this very likeable vet's personal experiences in his veterinarian practice. Sounds like a rough but also rewarding life.

I also enjoyed reading about some animals that I am not familiar with such as llamas and alpacas and Scottish Highland cattle.

Very engaging and interesting read and highly recommend it to animal lovers.

Very pedestrian. The illustrations by June Camerer aren't that appealing either. Read James Herriot instead.

This is a delightful book. It's a peek into the life of a veterinarian's many challenges, and leaves you with such a good feeling that you hate to see it come to an end.

Have you every wondered what at Veterinarian's life is like? Veterinarian Wells returns with another collection of warm, humorous tales of the animals he treats and the people who own and care for them. He introduces us to a cross section of critters who come through his office , or who he has to visit. He doesn't just deal with cats and dogs, but also sheep, goats, llamas, caattle, horses, donkeys and mules, most of which require outpatient visits. The stories are as much about the human owners as about the animal patients; for pet owners, Wells provides insight into a vet's view of the world. I loved gaining insight and an even greater appreciation for my dog's vet and everything he deals with on a daily basis. I loved it so much I didn't want it to end.A fantastic read that pet owners will love.
