    Warm, engaging, and informative look at the life of a vetLike most teens, Philipp Schott did not know what he wanted to be when he grew up, but when it came time to enter college his father stressed the importance of choosing a field that would offer employment when he graduated Veterinary medicine seems like a surprising choice, since Schott s entire experience with pets consisted of one pet gerbil, but he liked zoology, and he liked cats and dogs, so what the heck The result has been a caree Warm, engaging, and informative look at the life of a vetLike most teens, Philipp Schott did not know what he wanted to be when he grew up, but when it came time to enter college his father stressed the importance of choosing a field that would offer employment when he graduated Veterinary medicine seems like a surprising choice, since Schott s entire experience with pets consisted of one pet gerbil, but he liked zoology, and he liked cats and dogs, so what the heck The result has been a career of almost 30 years treating small animals, a career that has enriched the lives of many animals and their humans and clearly brought fulfillment to Schott as well The Accidental Veterinarian is a collection of short pieces written over the past two years that tells Schott s story from his decision to become a veterinarian to the present day The essays cover his training, the practical experience of being a veterinarian, interesting bits of veterinary science, and stories of some of thepeculiar cases he has encountered But those topics sound dull, and The Accidental Veterinarian is anything but Schott realized early on that a love of people is as essential to success as a veterinarian as a love of animals, and this is a warm book as full of humanity as it is of cats and dogs and gerbils As Schott says, he has had hardened looking men confess that they criedwhen their dog died than when their father died, and lonely elderly women say that they have laughedwith their kitten than they have about anything else for a very long time The main focus is on the people and animals, and I laughed a lot and teared upthan once But I also learned some interesting veterinary lore, like the possibility that the frequency of a cat s purr may encourage tissue healing, which could explain why it is beneficial for cats to purr when they are injured As a cat person I have become accustomed to being labeled a crazy cat lady , but some of the rather bizarre lengths dog people will go to , like neuticles Look it up surpass anything I have seen in the cat world One small caveat I had considered recommending this book to a young middle schooler who wants to be a veterinarian, but there are a few incidents that would prevent me from giving it an unqualified G rating Parents might want to preview the book for younger readers.Since this is a collection of short pieces, each only a page or two long, The Accidental Veterinarian is perfectly designed for those times when you just have a few minutes to kill and would like something to entertain you That is how I intended to read the book, but when I began to read I found it so engaging that I sat down and polished it off in one afternoon No matter how you approach it, though, if you like animals or just appreciate a warmly told tale of an accidental life choice, this book should be a good choice for you Schott describes the animals he has treated as endlessly fascinating, endlessly charming, endlessly appealing so is his book.Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for an advance review copy of this book

    I like reading books about animals and that s why this one caught my eye Dr Schott is a veterinarian in Winnipeg, MB He has advanced training in diagnostic ultrasound and for the last fifteen years has had the largest ultrasound referral practice in Manitoba His other special interests in practice are cardiology, oncology and internal medicine He has also been the chair of the provincial Peer Review Committee professional discipline for a number of years Dr Schott was named Manitoba Vet I like reading books about animals and that s why this one caught my eye Dr Schott is a veterinarian in Winnipeg, MB He has advanced training in diagnostic ultrasound and for the last fifteen years has had the largest ultrasound referral practice in Manitoba His other special interests in practice are cardiology, oncology and internal medicine He has also been the chair of the provincial Peer Review Committee professional discipline for a number of years Dr Schott was named Manitoba Veterinarian of the Year in 2009 and was presented the Award of Merit by the Manitoba Veterinary Medical Association in 2015.After reading all his qualifications, you would think that the writing in this book would be stilted and super professional Actually it was quite the opposite I enjoyed his writing style as it was amusing and casual As a head s up, there are a couple swear words rhymes with it When he did get technical like discussing urine or diarrhea, for example , he gave a head s up and tried to make it as interesting and fun as possible.The chapters are The making of a veterinarian The art of veterinary medicine The science of veterinary medicine Peculiar tales from veterinary practiceThe book tells of his family moving to Canada from Germany when he was quite young He didn t really have pets growing up but that didn t stop his interest in them The book is full of stories of his experiences, some sad, most funny, of being a vet and treating cats and dogs and even a duck and a hare He also describes the serious side of being a vet why people think vet bills are too high, the high rate of suicides among vets, euthanasia of pets, why vets don t call you back right away, etc It was entertaining to read the stories about the animals he s helped but it was also interesting to get the scoop on what it s like to be a vet.Dr Schott lists one of his interests as brewing beer I think he would be a fun guy to sit and have a few beer with.Blog review post
