About the Author
Annie Bowes was diagnosed with autism as an adult, which didn't limit her ability to become an emergency and critical care veterinarian. Dr. Bowes' unique background was greatly influenced by her ASD father, who encouraged her to focus on the gifts that autism can bring—not how she differed from the world.
Dr. Bowes is an authority on the human-animal bond and has completed her certification program at Purdue University. She is a consultant for the Pet Loss Support Group and other human-animal bond programs designed to understand the connection of pets to their owners. The emergency veterinary field brings the most emotional and trying experiences, giving Dr. Bowes unparalleled exposure to the richness of the pet connection and the capacities of the human spirit. Her book reflects her time witnessing the miracle and privilege of pet relationship.
