Tell Me Where It Hurts Tell Me Where It Hurts A Day Of Humor, Healing, And Hope In My Life As An Animal Surgeon

I m from England and I m a veterinary surgeon working at the Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, one of the biggest animal hospitals in the world If I had to sum up the best part of my career in one word it would be unpredictable because what s great about coming to work everyday is the certainty of surprise It might be a Chihuahua or a Great Dane, a Maine Coon Cat or an iguana It might b I m from England and I m a veterinary surgeon working at the Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, one of the biggest animal hospitals in the world If I had to sum up the best part of my career in one word it would be unpredictable because what s great about coming to work everyday is the certainty of surprise It might be a Chihuahua or a Great Dane, a Maine Coon Cat or an iguana It might be the heartache of saying goodbye to a best friend it might be the elation of a surgical cure and a relationship to a true companion restored It is all of this andWhat s not to love In my first book, Tell Me Where It Hurts I tried to capture the rush and the passion of modern veterinary medicine In Love is the Best Medicine, I have focusedon the pets and their owners, trying to expose thevulnerable,emotional aspects of what it means to heal sick animals In my latest book, Ever By My Side, I turn the lens inward and consider the animals I think of as my own pets, taking an opportunity to relive some of the defining moments of my life in which an animal took their cue, stepped up and gave me a chance to appreciate a different perspective This is my attempt to show them off and share their subtle, startling, and inspirational lessons, which have played a small but vital part in helping to shape the person you see with the stethascope around his neck

    One day in the life of a veterinary business There were some interesting stories, but nothing out of the ordinary What elevated the book for me was that it was a buddy read with my friend Sheila who has worked in both the practical and business side of veterinary medicine One of my cats, Talullah, suffered an agonising death when the vet couldn t find a vein to pop the going to sleep forever medicine in I wasn t there but it was so traumatic my son still can t speak of it So I learned exa One day in the life of a veterinary business There were some interesting stories, but nothing out of the ordinary What elevated the book for me was that it was a buddy read with my friend Sheila who has worked in both the practical and business side of veterinary medicine One of my cats, Talullah, suffered an agonising death when the vet couldn t find a vein to pop the going to slee...

    3.5 stars, but I just can t give it 4 stars It is an interesting look at a modern vet his hospital where he specializes in surgery on dogs cats There are plenty of references to Herriot I think he wanted to write in that vein, but the tone was too uneven he is too callous to carry that off He didn t get the people the way Herriot did, although he does describe them superficially quite well Marg tried reading this, but put it down about a quarter of the way through, ab 3.5 stars, but I just can t give it 4 stars It is an interesting look at a modern vet his hospital where he specializes in surgery on dogs cats There are plenty of references to Herriot I think he wanted to write in that vein, but the tone was too uneven he is too callous to carry that off He didn t get the people the way Herriot did, although he does describe them superficially quite well Marg tried reading this, but put it down about a quarter of the way through, about the worst part of the book view spoiler He cheerfully tells a resident that it was OK to run hundreds of dollars in unnecessary tests because the dog s o...

    Having spent hours in veterinary hospitals with various pets over the years, I am always curious about the lives on the other side of the table the veterinarians Their diagnoses are made often solely on observation, because their patients obviously can t communicate verbally about their distress hence the ironic title And so Tell Me Where It Hurts revolves loosely on several different cases Trout, an orthopedic surgical specialist, sees in the course of a day Unlike many works of nonficti Having spent hours in veterinary hospitals with various pets over the ...

    I disagree with a lot of previous reviews of this book In 280 some odd pages, Nick Trout has managed to accomplish the seemingly impossible and find words to describe the indescribable relationship between owner and pet Seldom has an author been able to take something so abstract and create something tangible.This book is less of a day in the life of a veterinarian than a collection of anecdotes and memories Nick Trout chose to write it in this manner in order to cleverly convey the normal he I disagree with a lot of previous reviews of this book In 280 some odd pages, Nick Trout has managed to accomplish the seemingly impossible and find words to describe the indescribable relationship between owner and pet Seldom has an author been able to take something so abstract and create something tangible.This book is less of a day in the life of a veterinarian than a collection of anecdotes and memories Nick Trout chose to write it in this manner in order to cleverly convey the normal hectic pace of every day at the hospital All of these events may not have occurred on the same day in reality, but they are meant to tie together Dr Trout s most prominent memories to resemble his every day life.All in all, this book was a good read Not many veterinarians can write so ...

    I know the average reader will go to this book for cutesy animal stories and they are there For me, the read was therapeutic in a sense It s nice to hear that these sort of scenarios go down in other hospitals There s emergencies in the middle of the night, surgeries to remove the most disgusting things from intestines, owners who can t stop trying to find a cure and people who think that veterinary medicine is a waste of the consumer s money.Veterinary medicine has challenges by the boatload I know the average reader will go to this book for cutesy animal stories and they ...

    Some nice animal stories, and not a bad read, but the writing is awkward and the book has no focus It tries to cover too much territory for a short book and becomes a random collection of largely unsatisfying anecdotes.The author is a veterinary surgeon who performs expensive procedures on pets, and he does demonstrate the controversy behind this, albeit without an in depth discussion For instance, he tells the story of an old man who is willing to spend money he can hardly spare on a complex, Some nice animal stories, and not a bad read, but the writing is awkward and the book has no focus It tries to cover too much territory for a short book and becomes a random collection of largely unsatisfying anecdotes.The author is a veterinary surgeon who performs expensive procedures on pets, and he does demonstrate the controversy behind this, albe...

    I was interested to see how realistic this book would be, since I work in the veterinary field, and was happy to find that the veterinarian author pretty much nails the things that would happen in the life of an emergency hospital veterinarian The author does lump all of his unique and interesting cases into a one day story, when the odds of seeing all these unique cases on any one day would be limited, but I am sure this was just done to keep the story interesting and to kee...
