1.0 out of 5 stars Overly Negative, 26 Dec 2010
This review is from: Pet Hates: The Shocking Truth About Pets and Vets (Paperback)
While I understand Mr. Artmeier entitled this "Pet Hates", nothing could have prepared me for the onslaught of vitriolic negativity that would ensue over the next 157 pages. It reads more like an anger management diary, at the end of which it is claimed that the author is a "lover of humans and animals". His disdain towards animals is made apparent throughout, most notably by his cavalier resorting to euthanasia at almost every opportunity. Those in the veterinary profession have the unique ability to use euthanasia as the ultimate treatment option for pain, it should not be thought of in any other way. I also find it laughable that Mr. Artmeier thinks he is a lover of humans, as he refers to both colleagues and clients with offensive language, here are a few choice expletives he tags hard working veterinary nurses with: "She's a bitter cow anyway [...] the bitter bitch of a nurse". The only reason I gave this book one star is that the author does itemise each chapter (e.g.: Foreign Bodies, Heart Failure, Antibiotics etc.), and to be fair to him, there is some measure of accuracy to his descriptions of various cases. Whatever you do, do not purchase this book, it's negativity is astounding and unrelenting. I only hope Mr. Artmeier found happiness outside of the veterinary profession...
