Emergency VetBook - 1998
CRITICAL CARE At the Animal Emergency Clinic in Palm Desert, California, veterinarian Lillian Roberts never knows what the night will bring. A chimpanzee with pneumonia, a comatose cat, a dog mangled in a hit-and-run. Whatever the crisis, she gives her patients her all--easing pain, performing major surgery, improvising treatments, and rolling with the punches through long, hard hours. Now, in dozens of thrilling true stories, we relive with Dr. Roberts the most intense and memorable of her battles to save lives, mourning her losses, rejoicing in her many victories. For everyone who loves animals, Emergency Vet is a rare and wonderful book, true medicine at its spine-tingling best.
