CALL THE VET

BRUCE FOGLE    Book Number: 89852    Product format: Hardback

Sub-titled 'My Life As A Young Vet In 1970s London' Bruce Fogle was the husband of respected actress Julia Foster and the father of author and broadcaster Ben. In-between, he became the world's bestselling practicing vet with millions of books published in over 40 languages, and he still works as a vet. Arriving in London in the 70s as a fresh-faced Canadian, Bruce assumed that because he knew the language he would understand English. As a graduate of the world's best veterinary school, he also thought his profession would come naturally to him. He quickly learned not to make assumptions. Bruce began his career at the prestigious Woodrow & Singleton surgery in the heart of Knightsbridge. Frequented by Britain's most distinguished pet owners from duchesses and sultans to Paul McCartney and Elizabeth Taylor, it also cared for the exotic inhabitants of Harrods' 'Zoo Department'. Over the next few years and arc of patients would cross Bruce's table, from cats and dogs to alligators, pumas and even a capuchin monkey. An electrocuted young lurcher, an overweight bulldog named Cassius whose bruiser of an owner passes out on seeing the syringe, effing and blinding taxi drivers speeding wounded animals through London, X-rays and reflex vomiting, plenty of detail and period nostalgia. 312pp.
