Breakfast Chat 7: "Your Dog Ate What? Again?" (Weird Veterinary Stories #2)
Manage episode 374338528 series 3291653
This is a weird one. Not at all what you'd be expecting. The names of locations, individuals, and 4-legged lifeforms have been changed to protect the innocent.
If you enjoy funny vet stories, you might enjoy the books of James Herriot, a veterinarian plying his trade in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales of northern England. The stories take place before World War 2, in the days when farmers still used horse-drawn implements on their farms, and every veterinarian had to be knowledgeable about every species of animal. Hilarious, heartwarming, and poignant. Warning: will make you want to become a veterinarian. (That's what happened to Clare...)
