Book Description

The highly amusing, uplifting and entertaining follow-up to All My Patients Have Tales

In All My Patients Kick and Bite, a second collection by our intrepid vet, Jeff Wells has his work cut out for him when he learns that llamas do not take kindly to having their toenails trimmed, dog owners in the medical field can be a real pain, Scottish Highland cattle stick together and just might run a vet out of their enclosure, and fixing an overly amorous burro often needs to be prioritized. We also find out what inspired a young Jeff to become a vet, and how his own pets enrich his life.

Told with Wells’s trademark humor and gentle touch, these and many other heartwarming, heartbreaking, funny and strange stories will give readers a whole new appreciation for those who care for our pets.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable Oct. 1 2013
By Fablexus TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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!

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.

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.
