Description

This first book by the much-loved stars of TV's VILLAGE VETS is the unforgettable, hilarious, heartwarming and hair-raising adventures of two country vets, the animals they treat and the characters they meet.

Best mates since they met on their first day at uni, Anthony Bennett and James Carroll both dreamed of working with animals from the time they were knee high. Little did these down-to-earth country vets know their dreams would find them unlikely TV stars, their larrikinism and genuine affection for the people they meet and the animals they treat winning the hearts of Australians everywhere. VILLAGE VETS takes us back to their early years, from their hilarious escapades at university, to their intrepid adventures in the UK and the Australian bush, to setting up their own practice in an idyllic coastal town in New South Wales. But if you thought country towns were sleepy, think again. Anthony and James have done it all - operated on guinea pigs and euthanased fish; treated a horse that had lost its foot and fixed a prolapsed cow with a piece of polypipe. And then there was the day that involved four calvings, one severed artery, one fox-bait poisoning, one skewered kelpie, one snakebite and 480 kilometres of driving ...
An Australian version of James Herriot's ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL, VILLAGE VETS will by turns charm you, make you laugh out loud and bring a tear to your eye. Join Anthony and James as they take you on an unforgettable journey into the heartache and joy of life as country vets, who are so often up to their armpits in ... something!

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.
