The hilarious true adventures of two young vets dealing with all creatures (and humans!) great and small in country Australia.

'This is a wonderful memoir ... the only fault I can find is that it was over so very quickly! There are some hilarious moments in a vet's life that you would normally never hear about, let alone believe, but this book has been written with such frankness and honesty you just laugh harder when you come across some of their more "normal" moments.' - Country Update.

The life of a country vet is far from glamorous. There's no such thing as a nine-to-five working day. You're out in all weathers, at all times of the day and night. More often than not you're covered in smelly muck, working against the clock to save animals in critical situations - whether that's helping a cow in distress birthing unexpected triplets, saving a crook dog that's eaten a bucket load of sheep fat, a horse needing a risky operation far from the surgery clinic, or a cat that you resuscitate against all the odds.

Best mates Anthony Bennett and James Carroll wouldn't have it any other way.

Calving Straps and Zombie Cats is the adventures of two young vets dealing with all creatures (and humans!) great and small in country Australia. With memorable characters, some heartstopping moments, and a healthy dose of humour, these stories of life behind the scenes in a busy mixed country practice will touch your heart as well as tickle your funny-bone. You'll be hooked till the very last page.

About Anthony Bennett

Best mates and business partners, Anthony Bennett and James Carroll run three vet practices on the NSW South Coast. Stars of the observational documentary VILLAGE VETS AUSTRALIA on Foxtel's Lifestyle Channel, their days are spent managing dairy cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, alpaca and horses, as well as the myriad small animals that visit the clinic every day. They share an amazing camaraderie, born from their student days and enhanced by the experiences they have shared, the animals they have treated - those they have saved and lost - the business they have built, and the community they are an integral and proud part of. Their first book VILLAGE VETS was published in 2015.
