Product Description

Review

"Veterinarian Wells returns with another collection of warm, humorous tales of the animals he treats and the people who own and care for them. Dealing with the unexpected—llamas who don’t want their nails trimmed, teenagers looking to get high on feline distemper vaccine, a herd of Scottish Highland cattle trying to protect a calf from the vet—makes for some high-tension reading. There are also moving stories of difficult births and life-saving efforts in nighttime winter snows. Wells weaves in the struggles of his own life and marriage with his wife's successful fight against recurrent cancer, and their adoption of an orphan from Korea. Good-natured, inviting animal tales." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This is a wonderfully written book...It is filled with what has become [Wells's]trademark humor and gentle touch. Dr. Wells’ book is filled with stories that are touching, poignant, and funny, all reflecting his experiences as a dedicated veterinarian. Anyone who has ever been owned by a family pet will love this book." --Tucson Citizen

"The veterinarian's second book of gently told tales from his practice are heartwarming and heartbreaking."-- The Sacramento Bee

"After reading this warm and compassionate eclectic mix of stories, you’re left loving this rural Colorado veterinarian’s sense of humor, patience and earthiness.Each of the richly detailed vignettes is intense and engaging while accented with vivid characters and a tough realism, leaving you marveling at the author’s commitment and resilient, can-do spirit." -- Seattle Kennel Club

I love reading the thoughts of vets who truly love what they do. Who really, honestly work for the improvement of the animals they work with, not for the paycheck at the end of the week. Jeff Wells is no exception, although the book is a little on the small side, I would love to see a more in depth work from him, maybe a big hardcover is in the future? Buy this book, let the publisher know we appreciate our vets!

All My Patients Kick and Bite: Favorite Stories from a Vet's Practice Jan. 5 2013
By Dee H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have now read both his books, the other one is All My Patients have tales. They are great fun books. I laughed and cried, he is a great Vet, man and writer. True tales of a Vet and his practice over the years. I wish they were longer. Great read, I highly recommend it.

a good read Jan. 20 2013
By Ima Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a small, well written book in the style of James Herriott but it does not rise to that level. I found it interesting and entertaining. My benchmark for a book is whether or not I would keep it for a reread at a future time. I probably will not reread this book, although I liked it the first time through.

Fun book Oct. 8 2013
By xenofan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A fun book in the style of James Herriot. I really enjoyed it, although still prefer James Herriot more. The stores in this story were short, bite-sized snippets of a vets life. They are funny, heart warming, or just plain strange. It did not take me long to read.

By Robin Sheridan - Published on Amazon.com

Of course, it goes without saying that NO ONE could write stories in the same vein as James Herriot! The man just had a "natural gift" for writing & getting his characters charms with intimate, personal descriptions that were simply delicious.

In all fairness, Jeff Wells did an okay job & should be given the opportunity to be read at leisure. I'm sure you won't regret reading this book, especially if you are an animal lover. But frankly, I found it a tad bit boring, as it was very slow moving the story along. I once worked for a veterinarian, so I may have a bit of edge of knowing what was pretty much guaranteed to happen "next". Still, you might give it a try; it's clean reading for all ages.
for the love of animals... July 21 2014

Another warm hearted book by Dr. Wells. Loved each one of these stories. Wonderfully written, so much so that I couldn't put it down. Just didn't want these two books to come to an end. For anyone with animals, my opinion, this is a great source of information in making sure your four legged best friends get the best care possible care. I hope Dr Wells continues to write!
