A memoir of 50 years of practicing large animal veterinary medicine in the vast Big Bend country of Texas. Living in Marfa, Texas the Doc traveled far and wide to treat his patients - pregnancy testing cows, delivering calves, or extracting a deer horn or mesquite limb from deep in a cow's throat. Often working days with little or no sleep, the Doc was literally up to his armpits in work. His patients included horses, hogs, sheep and goats, and an occasional family pet - dogs, cats, skunks and turtles. He once declawed a pet mountain lion for one of his clients. The Doc has been stepped on, kicked, stomped, gored, scratched and bitten by his patients. Doc writes like a natural born story teller. Here is the life of a man you loved his work and who practiced it with compassion and dedication. He loves rugged West Texas. His clients were his friends. He particularly enjoyed the camaraderie of ranchers and cowboys and appreciated a well run cow work.
