Product Description

Product Description

Armed with the belief that simply loving animals would be enough to see her through high school, college, and eventually into veterinary medicine, Phoenix is in for some rude surprises as she navigates her way toward a career working with animals in "The Early Years," the first installment of her VET TECH TALES series.

From the dying finch found miraculously "resurrected" in a pet store to the diabetic poodle that gives its elderly owner a purpose in life to an embarrassing incident with a coyote, these engaging true tales reinforce how the animals we meet teach us the greatest lessons about what it means to be human.

A charming coming-of-age story for anyone who's ever had a dream or a pet.

17 Tales - 25,000 words - about 100 pages

As an animal 'nut' I am always on the lookout for books about animals, vet stories, in fact, anything to read that has paws and whiskers attached. The book is a really good read, having comical parts and sad parts, but a good read if you like these kind of books.
I am trying to get a library of animal themed book, especially if they are written by someone who works with animals, as they are usually very funny.
This book is worth twice the price paid, but don't tell anyone I said that!!
If you also like animal books, give it a go, you won't be disappointed.Vet Tech Tales: The Early Years (Confessions of an Animal Junkie)

I had expected a more detailed tale of the life of a Vet rather than the personal content of this book but it was a worthwhile read.

Story was ok but didn't have much substance so was a little disappointing. It was a fairly easy read though
