The heart-wrenching and adventure-filled stories of a South African wild animal vet and his colleagues

From the Inside Flap:

When do you watch a wild animal suffer and let nature take its course, and when do you intervene? In his more than twenty-five years as an African vet, Roy Aronson has tended to a two-ton rhino that lost its horn after colliding with a concrete wall, facilitated the miraculous recovery of a squirrel monkey, performed eye surgery on a lion out in the bush, and treated a hedgehog that had been mauled by a dog. He has also worked with some of Africa’s most dedicated conservationists and wildlife veterinarians. He has witnessed their passion and bravery and been with them when hard decisions had to be made.
Tales of an African Vet brings together Dr. Aronson’s adventures in a rare behind-the-scenes look at those who treat wild animals in their natural habitats. Whether you are drawn to outdoor adventure stories, African wildlife, or the veterinarian’s trade, you will find this a riveting read, filled with rich insights into both the animal and human cultures of Africa.

From the Back Cover:

"I have tracked lions and cheetahs, anesthetized rhinos, collared elephants, and nearly lost a foot to a hungry crocodile. I’ve shot a bull running amok, come face-to-face with an angry hybrid wolf, been spat at by a cobra, and attacked by a puff adder. I have seen the devastating effects of poaching, and I’ve had to make some tough decisions about the fate of an animal’s life time and time again. . . .
In the following pages, I will introduce you to many “characters” who populate my story. You will meet the Huchzermeyers, both father and son, who are vets; Peter Rogers, a dedicated wildlife vet and one of the great ones; and Professor Dave Meltzer, a world-renowned expert on cheetah breeding. You will also meet Jabu the elephant, Munwane the rhino, Savannah the cheetah, and Mehlwane the lioness—some of the many animals I have had the amazing privilege of helping."
