Written in collaboration with the Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine by a Boston Globe reporter and author who was granted rare access to their emergency ward, Animal ER takes us into the day-to-day drama of life on the front lines of veterinary medicine. In this premier animal facility, experts in the fields of surgery, internal medicine, cardiology, ophthalmology, and oncology provide care for patients of all shapes, sizes, and breeds. Here, operations using state-of-the-art technology go hand in hand with personal counseling for owners and pets in crisis. From a pygmy hedgehog with mites to an elephant with an eye problem to the Dalmatian who must undergo disc surgery for his back...from the close calls to the split-second decisions that can save a life, Animal ER is a moving testament to the healing powers of love and medicine-and to the timeless bond between people and their pets.… (mais)

If you buy this book secondhand really cheap and only use it for cleaning up animal messes then maybe its worth while, otherwise, scratch your bum, its less of a waste of time. ( )

Daily events in a busy animal ER. Each chapter has a kind of theme, the first being an introduction to the hospital itself. Following that, the subjects include dogs with GDV or "bloat", car crash victims, animals that have gone into septic shock, dogs that swallow foreign objects, and a variety of serious illnesses. One chapter covers a number of cases where doctors and owners had to agonize over animals that seemed beyond help. Another two chapters cover what goes on in the wildlife section of the hospital. There's even a discussion about bringing back to life animals that have actually died on the table (issues and morals abound), about the difficulties of trying to treat aggressive animals, and the many cases where an owner brought an animal in almost too late, or conversely was panicking over a horrendous-looking case that turned out to be a mild problem. The actual background stories are few and brief, lacking a depth I usually appreciate- but at the same time I got an overwhelming sense of how busy a veterinarian ICU must be.The writing is rather dry, and the stories, while very intense, are too short. Some of them are nothing less than miraculous, others very sad. If you don't like to read about animals suffering, this book is definitely not for you. There are just as many unhappy endings as ones where the pet gets to go home again.

Sort of boring despite compelling subject matter. Read like a series of magazine articles: some characters were introduced and described, but the story didn't remain focused on them and went on with others who are are reduced to walk-on one-liner sort of participation.

My thoughts on veterinary medicine often confuses me. This book helped me sort it out to an extent. Sometimes you just have to let go. Sometimes you have to fight for it. ( )
