Description

From the front lines of modern medicine, Tell Me Where It Hurts is a fascinating insider portrait of a veterinarian, his furry patients, and the blend of old-fashioned instincts and cutting-edge technology that defines pet care in the twenty-first century.

For anyone who’s ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at your veterinarian’s office, Tell Me Where It Hurts offers a vicarious journey through twenty-four intimate, eye-opening, heartrending hours at the premier Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. You’ll learn about the amazing progress of modern animal medicine, where organ transplants, joint replacements, and state-of-the-art cancer treatments have become more and more common. With these technological advances come controversies and complexities that Dr. Trout thoughtfully explores, such as how long (and at what cost) treatments should be given, how the Internet has changed pet care, and the rise in cosmetic surgery.

You’ll also be inspired by the heartwarming stories of struggle and survival filling these pages. With a wry and winning tone, Dr. Trout offers up hilarious and delightful anecdotes about cuddly (or not-so-cuddly) pets and their variously zany, desperate, and demanding owners. In total, Tell Me Where It Hurts offers a fascinating portrait of the comedy and drama, complexities and rewards involved with loving and healing animals.

Part ER, part Dog Whisperer, and part House, this heartfelt and candid book shows that while the technology has changed since James Herriot’s day, the humanity and compassion remains unchanged. If you’ve ever had a pet or special place in your heart for furry friends, Dr. Trout’s irresistible book is for you.

    Nicely written book. Thoughtful. I have one quibble with author. Doesn't he see any lowly mutts in his practice? Surely more than one mention of a cross-breed or plain Heinz 57 could have been used. We need to get over glamorizing fancy dog breeds that no longer serve their original purpose. We don't need to own breeds originally used for lion hunting or enormous canines used for rescue in the high alps or the cold waters of Newfoundland. Encourage the idea that adoption of mutts is the way to find a perfect companion and a healthy dog.

    This is a great book, I read it when it first came out and I fell in love with Trouts writing style and compassion. I'm a vet tech and could instantly relate to the book, as well as understand the references. It was great because of the suspense and drama hidden within it's pages! Try it and see if it suits you.
