Overview

Veterinarian Brad Brown never knew what to expect when he was called out to a farm to deal with a sick cow or an injured horse. Invariably the cash-strapped farmer would say, "While you’re here, Doc" and rattle off a list of surprise medical chores that weren’t part of the original call. But whether he was trying to geld a spooked stallion in a blizzard or found himself in the middle of an all-out fracas involving a monkey’s abscessed tooth and a shotgun, Dr. Brown took it in stride, with great affection for his four-legged patients as well as his two-legged clients. James Herriot, Baxter Black, and E. B. White rolled into one and wearing rubber boots, Brad Brown gives us a wonderful set of stories from the life of a country vet.

    What a great fun read

    I purchased the book based on a write up in the Sunday Newspaper, this was on Sunday, by Tuesday I had finished reading the book and gave it to a friend to read. This was was really enjoyable. Written in a fashion that one could visualize what was happening as the Author was doing the Farm visit. You will learn what a tough job it is to be a Vet and how little one is paid for such demanding work. John D. Gwazdosky Augusta, Maine

    RESPECT ANIMALS!..& VETERINARIANS!&!

    My Dad was a DVM in the RURAL BUCKEYE farmland, 95%(approx.) of his practice
    was with large large animals there in Dairy Country. This book really brings back a lot of memories for ANYONE who has worked with animals.

    I was ALWAYS helping Dad, even though Mom said I had to GO TO SCHOOL the next day. (So, I became a teacher!) I really had a lot of tears reading the situations so synonymous to my Dad's scenarios.

    If you LOVE animals, you will read this, and wonder why you had NOT read it earlier!
    SHARE this with friends, too!
    Also, I have heard NOTHING but GREAT things about Doc Brown! GREAT person!
