About the Author

Veterinary Reflections is the result of Eve Gurston's own idea when one day in her third year of veterinary practice she decided she wanted to share her experiences with people around her.

She knew that she was not alone in her thinking and that many a working vet shared her thoughts and experiences.

Eve laid out an opportunity for all practising vets to share their experiences and accompanying emotions and bring them all together to complement her own in compiling this book.

She put together the tales she gathered from across the UK to best reflect working veterinary life simply as it is. This book is not just about animals, it is the story of people and journeys through their careers.

This book contains a variety of emotions from happiness to feeling sad, sense of achievement to frustration, from anger and fear through to humour and fun with many stories having a moral or a learned lesson following at the end of the story. A must read.

Contributors include Leonard Black, Mhairi Cameron, Nicola Gladden, George Grieve, Andrew Knight, Helen Woodvine and anonymous contributors.
