Vet on Call Summary

Vet on Call: My First Year as an Out-of-Hours Vet by Marc Abraham

When his father sat him down and told him to 'make something' of himself, young vet Marc Abraham decided to do it the hard way - by setting up an emergency 'out of hours' clinic. If getting used to the long night shifts wasn't bad enough, emergency cases are rarely straightforward. Whether it was dog who swallowed golf balls, or a gerbil in urgent need of a caesarean, every case had the potential for heartbreak. But animals and their owners could also be hilarious, such as the breeder who unwittingly gave his German Shepherd four testicles. . . Over the course of twelve tough months, the clinic began to flourish. Would Marc finally make something of himself after all? Marc Abraham writes guilelessly about his early mistakes, and the terror and joy involved in saving an animal's life. His memoir is a heart-warming, compelling and thoroughly entertaining look at the life of a vet on call.

Vet on Call Reviews

"Affectionate, funny ... so sweet-natured that it makes you want to hug him" * Daily Mail *
"A mixture of hilarity and heartbreak told with great charm and insight" * The Bookseller *
"I read it cover to cover in one day. Like any good writer, he achieves the right mix of humour and pathos to keep us interested, and his pacing is second to none - hence why I couldn't stop reading, even at the end of the chapter!" * dogsinthenews.co.uk *
"The people's vet" -- Clare Balding
"A fantastic vet" -- Joanna Page (Stacey from Gavin and Stacey)
