Beginning her career in veterinary medicine at farms on the English-Welsh border, Suzy Fincham-Gray later plied her trade in emergency rooms in urban American animal hospitals, and here she recounts some of the most challenging and rewarding cases of her career. Here Fincham-Gray introduces Zeke, a silver-brown tabby cat who likes to eat just a little too much; Grayling, an Irish wolfhound in need of critical treatment; and her own dog and cat Monty and Emma, who change her life in joyful and unexpected ways. With warmth and wit, Fincham-Gray explores our profound relationships with the animals in our lives, and stresses the importance of caring for patients who can't advocate for themselves.
