This book follows Julian’s veterinary stories and amusing anecdotes through his work as a mixed practice vet in North Yorkshire. Julian has spent over twenty years working in Thirsk, literally following in the footsteps of James Herriot - the world-renowned vet and author. Julian could not believe that this famous and historic practice, of which he was part, would be sold to become part of a huge chain of small animal vets. Incredulous at the prospect, Julian felt he had no option but to leave the practice he loved to start a new chapter in his veterinary career. This was a major change and not one he ever expected to have to make. This was hard enough, but made more challenging by the scrutiny that the popularity of Channel 5's 'The Yorkshire Vet' had brought to him, the practice and the area around Thirsk. This book follows Julian’s passion for treating the animals under his care, be they cows, sheep, pigs, horses, alpacas or dogs and cats, along with the interesting and amusing characters who own and care for them. His voice, well known from his television work, rings out from the page - as does the humour, dedication and love for the animals.
