9781435294639: While You're Here Doc: Farmyard Adventures of a Maine Veterinarian

Veterinarian Brad Brown never knew what to expect when he was called.

Whether he was trying to geld a spooked stallion in a blizzard or found himself in the middle of an all-out fracas involving a monkey’s abscessed tooth and a shotgun, he took it in stride, with great affection for both his four-legged patients and his two-legged clients.

Review:

“Stuffed with hilarious recollections of nearly a quarter century of dealing with all kinds of animals and their owners.”
- Yankee Magazine

“Mixes veterinary know-how with Down East storytelling, and each of his stories is a stand-alone gem.”
- Maine In Print

“Full of laconic farmers, hysterical owners, and more feisty animal patients than one can imagine, these stories of backwoods veterinary care are sure to be popular among James Herriot lovers.”
- Booklist

“Brown’s medical skills, physical stamina, courage, and especially his strong senses of perspective and humor made him ideally suited to the rigors of his chosen profession. They also make him the perfect narrator of a volume that succeeds as an All Creatures Great and Small, Maine-style.”
- Bangor Daily News

“Do not leave this book unattended by the bedside of any summer visitor. It will vanish, and they will look innocent. (Check their luggage.)”
- Courier-Gazette
