They can surgically remove an arrow in a cat's abdomen, repair a bird's broken wing, even save a tiny foal that is in a coma. How? With high-tech x-rays, endoscopes, and electrocardiographs-but most important, with a love of science and animals. Twenty-four hours a day, with a team of anesthesiologists, cardiologists, ophthalmologists, nurses, internists, residents, and a healthy dose of adrenaline, emergency room veterinarians try to heal these little-and large-creatures we consider part of our families. Filled with full-color behind-the-scenes photographs, this book captures the drama, excitement, and courage of being an ER vet.
Witness the excitement and drama of life in an animal emergency room as the ER vets work to heal the creatures we consider part of our families.
