LISTENING TO THE ANIMALS: Becoming The Supervet

NOEL FITZPATRICK    Book Number: 89118    Product format: Paperback

'That star I wished upon when I decided I wanted to be a vet aged ten, lying on my back in that ice-starched field and staring up at the enormity of the universe, has been the guiding light of my entire life.' Listening to animals gives us blessings in abundance and in this inspiring and heart-warming memoir, the renowned veterinary surgeon Professor Noel Fitzpatrick explores his path to becoming The Supervet. Noel's childhood was spent tending to the cattle and sheep, the hay and silage, the tractors and the land, his beloved sheepdog Pirate providing solace from the bullies that plagued him at school. From growing up on the family farm in Ballyfin, Ireland, where he was first inspired to founding Fitzpatrick Referrals in Surrey, we meet the animals that paved the way from the lambing fields, calving cows, corralling bullocks to bionic cats and dogs and of course his beloved Keira, the scruffy Border Terrier who has been by his side throughout his extraordinary career. There are horses for courses, the dog on the kitchen table, hedgehogs and swans, a robin and on tiger among these amazing stories of orthopaedics, neurosurgery, life, death, exams and other stresses. Hugely detailed on operations such as open heart surgery like Tiger (a cat whose left back leg was gangrenous). 374pp, paperback. 16 pages of colour photos.
