NEW BOOK: The Other Family Doctor: A Veterinarian Explores What Animals Can Teach Us About Love, Life, and Mortality by Karen Fine, DVM.

Karen Fine always knew she wanted to be a vet… in The Other Family Doctor, Dr. Fine shares all the touching, joyful, heartbreaking, and life-affirming tales that have made up her career. There’s the feral cat who becomes a creature out of a fable when he puts his trust in a young vet to heal his injured paw; the potbellied pig who grows too big to fit in the car but remains a cherished part of her family; and the dog who saves his owner’s life in a most unexpected way. The animals in Dr. Fine’s life become her teachers, and when her own beloved dog receives a devastating diagnosis \, their lessons guide her through the challenges ahead. Dr. Fine’s story provides rare insight into the world of today’s veterinarians and shows how caring for the animals in our lives can help us to better care for one another and ourselves.—provided by publisher (Anchor Books).
