Coated With Fur: A Vet’s Life Is Published!

After a year of writing and editing, I am pleased to announce that the book is published and available for your enjoyment!  Coated With Fur:  A Vet’s Life celebrates the deep bond between humans and animals.  Set in a veterinary practice, the book chronicles my triumphs and trials as a young woman owning her first animal hospital.  Experience each day as I did, from the joy of saving a dog’s leg to the agony of euthanizing a long-term patient.  Marvel at what it took to untangle a snake stuck in a doorway, scaring the society ladies in the waiting room.   
Through it all, embrace the unconditional love that exists when we open ourselves to the wonders of the human-animal bond!
