As a veterinary student approaches the end of training, and then starts that first job in practice, there is a sense not only of achievement and fulfilment but also of terror and self-doubt. Few of us will ever again be as knowledgeable about all aspects of the care, diseases and treatment of horses, cows, sheep, pigs, cats and dogs as we were at the time of graduation. Unfortunately, there is a seventh species to contend with: the clients.

Alisa has over 25 years of experience as a Veterinary Technician and Pet Care Coach. Her inexpensive and easy to follow pet care tips, at-home treatments and nutritional guidance will help pets of all ages. Most pet owners never realize: All animals get fleas-even the cleanest, indoor only ones. The majority of pet owners are shortening the lives of their beloved companions by over vaccinating them. There are seven signs of a good veterinarian. A good vet will save you money. There are three questions to always ask your vet that will save you money and help you make any treatment decisions for your pet, even the ultimate one. Alisa's regular visits to the pets of the biggest stars in Hollywood have been instrumental to keeping their pets healthy. While not every pet owner can afford the same level of pampering, every owner can benefit from the same inexpensive, preventive care. "I am on a mission to enrich the lives of all pets by educating their human companions. I have four cats and two dogs. Everyday I deal with celebrity clients, temperamental vets, and LA freeways. I have been bitten, scratched and barked at, sometimes even by the animals."

A lot of material has been written about pet care and the human-animal bond. We have been taking care of our pets better and better every year. The author, Dr. Hector Carbonell, wanted to write something that celebrates the unique bond he has with his clients, as they mutually take care of the star of the office visit: the pet. This book is about things that you and your veterinarian might discuss if time was not a factor. He wishes that optimum care can be delivered, and a friendly relationship cultivated in the exam room and beyond, without economics imposing its limits. It tackles concerns such as how to find a hospital that meets your expectations, how to save money on prescriptions, DYI skills, and other common ideas. A chapter called "It is Darkest Before Dawn" also delves deep into questions you might have but were afraid to ask; such as cranky employees, animal abuse, internet pharmacies, high prices, hospital staff drug problems, compassion fatigue, and others.

Honest and heart-warming account of the highs and lows of life as a vet, by lovable TV star Rory Cowlam. Rory Cowlam, otherwise known as Rory the Vet, has had a passion for animals for as long as he can remember. As a young boy, growing up in the countryside, he fell in love with the creatures that could be found both at home and in the neighbouring farms and fields. There was never any doubt in his mind as to what he wanted to do when he grew up. Now Rory's dreams of becoming a vet are a reality. He works in a busy London practice where his honest and emotional relationships with the animals and their owners have made him the relatable and approachable face of veterinary work. But, as Rory describes here with a mixture of his trademark openness and humour, what he couldn't have known as a small boy with his heart set on becoming the next James Herriot, was what becoming a vet really entails. In an era when doctors and nurses are talking more openly about the realities of saving human lives, Rory shows what a vital service vets offer in caring for the animals that often form the very heart of the household. He describes the demanding experience of veterinary school, and offers a very human take on what it's like to treat animals, and the little talked about mental health implications that this pressured life or death industry holds. This is a frank and heart-warming account of chasing a childhood dream and learning to love the reality.

Experience firsthand the inspiring and heartwarming bonds between wounded veterans and their service and companion animals. "Vets and Pets tells fifteen emotional and entertaining stories of the incredible bonds between wounded warriors, veterans, and other service members and their service and companion animals. Whether these special relationships are with dogs, cats, horses, pigs, or even birds of prey, readers will discover how these remarkable animals help veterans return to civilian life and live independently while simultaneously bringing joy and confidence into their lives. Tyler struggled to adjust to civilian life after losing both of his legs in Afghanistan, until he met his intelligent and willfully disobedient red European Doberman pinscher, Apollo. Vietnam veteran Patrick regained a sense of well-being and hope through the study of birds of prey. Max the horse has helped numerous veterans learn to trust, improve their communication, and increase their self-confidence and self-esteem. Mandi discovered that the intelligence and unconditional love of pigs were exactly what she needed to heal from an abusive past and a disappointing army-training injury. These are just a few of the uplifting stories that are featured in this striking collection. In addition to exploring the unique, lifelong bonds that can develop between veterans and their animal companions, Vets and Pets spotlights extraordinary nonprofits that unite wounded warriors with service and companion animals, including Pets for Patriots, Hooves Marching for Mercy, Horses Helping Heroes, and Avian Veteran Alliance, among others. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to Pets for Patriots.

Good communication skills provide better clinical outcomes and help avoid minor as well as major mistakes. Approximately 60-80% of negligence claims against vets are related to poor communication, with new graduates especially vulnerable. Communication skills are a growing part of the curriculum in veterinary schools, recognising how fundamental clear communication is to good practice. A Guide to Oral Communication in Veterinary Medicine covers why communication skills are important, the structure of typical communications and suggested approaches, veterinary specific communication pathways, and sample scripts between vet and client. Scenarios covered include everyday communication, dealing with challenging situations, different species, different settings, and communication within the veterinary team. The aim is to instill confidence and competence, build professionalism, and avoid problems. Most current teaching is based on a toolbox approach developed from the human medicine model. However, there is no set standard for teaching methodology, which is why this is primarily a book for students, but also includes a section for educators to provide guidance in this nascent subject.

In the memoir Vet Noir, a seasoned veterinarian humorously recounts stories of animals she treated and the people who loved them. Robin Truelove Stronk owned her own veterinary practice in Vermont with her husband for twenty-four years where she often dealt with clients who expected too much, listened too little, arrived too late, and sometimes just fainted. With an entertaining style, Dr. Stronk shares not only her own professional challenges, but also the unique expectations of the animals' owners. From a New England dairy farmer who expected her to strip to the waist to assist his cow with a difficult birth, to the distraught owner who held her guinea pig up to the telephone so the veterinarian could hear the noise her pet was making, Dr. Stronk's anecdotes illuminate the delightful, sometimes tortuous, and very often amusing relationships between a pet, its owner, and the veterinarian. Vet Noir provides a light-hearted glimpse into the world of veterinary medicine where animals are unconditionally loved and the people are kind beyond measure, dedicated, and splendidly appreciative mostly when they are not being quirky, infuriating, and more often than not, unknowingly comical.

Our relationship with animals is complex and contradictory; we hunt, kill and eat them, yet we also love, respect and protect them. This ambivalent relationship is further complicated by the fact that we attribute human emotions and intelligence to animals. We even go as far as likening them to children and treating them as family members. Drawing on a diverse range of case studies, Animals in Person attempts to unravel our close and fascinating link with the animal kingdom. This book highlights the theme of cross-species intimacy in contexts such as livestock care, pet keeping, and the use of animals in tourism. The studies draw on data from different parts of the world, including New Guinea, Nepal, India, Japan, Greece, Britain, The Netherlands and Australia. Animals in Person documents the existence of relations between humans and animals that, in many respects, recall relations among humans themselves.
