And other misadventures of a country veterinarian. By Melinda G McCall, DVM. Catchy title, huh?
Recommending this book, primarily for the ladies on CT, and definitely thought @farmerjan would enjoy it. And I know at least one gentleman on CT whose wife is a vet. Dr. McCall is a mobile vet in central Virginia and a single mother with a sense of humor and grit. I know how hard it is for a lot of women in Ag to be taken seriously, and certainly a large animal vet, but she wins over even the crotchetiest old men. Plus, I learned about Query fever, which can be transmitted to humans by a single spore (initial diagnosis was brucellosis - yikes!). Anyway, just a good read that all of us can relate to.
I'll check it out.
