Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

They can surgically remove an arrow in a cats abdomen, repair a birds broken wing, even save a tiny foal that is in a coma. How? With high-tech x-rays, endoscopes, and electrocardiographs—but most important, with a love of science and animals. Twenty-four hours a day, with a team of anesthesiologists, cardiologists, ophthalmologists, nurses, internists, residents, and a healthy dose of adrenaline, emergency room veterinarians try to heal these little—and large—creatures we consider part of our families.

Filled with full-color behind-the-scenes photographs, this book captures the drama, excitement, and courage of being an ER vet.

Synopsis:

With dramatic full-color photos throughout, award-winning author Donna Jackson brings to life the inner workings of an animal emergency room, profiling the important work ER veterinarians do behind closed doors. Animals survive traumas with the help of high-tech X-rays, ventilators, endoscopes, and more importantly, the expert care of veterinarians and veterinary nurses who love animals, science, and a daily dose of adrenaline! It takes loads of courage and compassion to be an ER vet!
