Confessions of a veterinary nurse: Paws, claws and puppy dog tails
Out Now !!
Even as a small child, Tracey dreamed of a career working with animals. That dream became a reality in 1986 when she secured a training position at a local veterinary practice. Fresh-faced and eager to learn, Tracey was thrown headfirst into life in a busy mixed animal practice. From pigs to pugs, calves to kittens from day one, Tracey realised that this was going to be no ordinary job. Working with some truly memorable characters, from a roguish practice principal to a head nurse who was a little too keen on a tipple, alongside committed and dedicated fellow veterinary nursing students, Tracey worked her way up from practice bucket washer to head nurse. Assisting in life-saving and tricky operations, nursing sick animals back to health, and shedding more than a tear or two, this is a humorous and sometimes bittersweet account of the life and times of a veterinary nurse, where no two days are ever the same.
For the love of Scout: Promises to a small dog
Adopting a rescue dog can be a journey into the unknown, but adopting a rescue dog born with severe visual impairment was always going to be a challenge. The questions came thick and fast would they, could they, should they? Scout entered the lives of Tracey and Paul and turned them upside down with his own brand of charismatic charm that melted not only their hearts, but the hearts of everyone he met. At first, it was definitely a case of the blind leading the blind, but with his indomitable spirit and a never-ending supply of enthusiasm, Scout was soon leading the way. Discover how Scout s carers learned to build on the unconditional trust and devotion that came from this clumsy, flat-footed, loveable Lurcher. And maybe just maybe this book will answer the real question. Who rescued who?
