    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Cats, dogs, people - funny and heartbreaking stories from a pet veterinarian. With insight and humor, Dr. Philipp Schott shares tales from the unlikely path he took into his career of veterinary science and anecdotes from his successful small-animal clinic. Dr. Schott brings to his writing the benefit of many years of expertise. Wisdom he imparts on readers includes the best way to give your cat a pill, how to prevent your very handy dog from opening a fridge, and how to handle your fish when it has half-swallowed another. Through these and other experiences, Dr. Schott also learned that veterinary medicine is as much, if not more, about the people as it is the animals. And he will have you laughing and crying as you embark on this journey of discovery with him."-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2019 March #1

*Starred Review* For all animal lovers, veterinary tales are always amusing, amazing, entertaining, and, once in a while, sad. Few books (outside of James Herriot's All Creatures Great and Small, 1972, known to vets as All Creatures Grunt and Smell) approach the combination of fine writing, radical honesty, and endless optimism found in Winnipeg practitioner Schott's. His stories fall into four categories: the making of a vet, the art of veterinary medicine, the science of veterinary medicine, and peculiar tales (but aren't they all?). Each one offers brief moments, snapshots of a truth gained in more than two decades of practice. He believes, for instance, that colleagues, continuing education, and the internet save vets from malpractice. It's best not to talk to your vet when she's using a stethoscope. Beware of dogs like Oscar Westenheimer, a chihuahua cross who resembled a baked potato with four toothpicks for legs and an angry walnut for a head. There are a few best ways to pill a cat. Recognize the warning signs of kennel cough (and what it really means). Laugh until you cry—and believe, as he says, that what really matters is that the heart of the pet (and its owner) is pure.
