Love is the Best Medicine : What Two Dogs Taught One Vet About Hope, Humility and Everyday Miracles
British vet, Nick Trout, a modern day James Herriot working in Boston, USA, returns with a completely captivating true story. After exposing the fascinating life of a vet in his previous book, Trout now delves into rich emotional territory with the story of two dogs who have had a big impact in his career. Helen was found abandoned in a restaurant parking lot one rainy night, and despite her mangy condition, a couple falls in love with her. But just as she is rescued from the streets, a tumor is discovered and she's given a devastating prognosis. Chloe is suffering from chronic leg fractures which devastate her owner. Enter Dr Trout, who presides over what should be routine surgeries, until the unthinkable happens. LOVE IS THE BEST MEDICINE immerses readers in the true life drama of saving dearly loved pets, and underscores the incredible responsibility Nick carries as their healer. Fresh, charming, and intensely affecting, it's a one of a kind story.
