Join novice vet, Paul Mitchell, in a further six months of hilarious escapades he experiences while working at Prospect House Veterinary Hospital.
He’s confronted by a ravenous pig while sunbathing naked in a cornfield. He locks jaws with a caiman with scale rot and battles with Doug, a vicious miniature donkey that’s always sinking his teeth into him.
It ends with a Christmas pet blessing which erupts into pandemonium as frightened pets and owners scatter through the pews.
Throughout his adventures, Paul is loyally supported by the team at the hospital – in particular Beryl, the elderly one-eyed receptionist, and, Lucy the junior nurse – together with whom he shares this merry-go-round of mayhem.
It’s a gripping, fast page-turner that’s guaranteed to keep animal lovers entranced.
‘You’ll laugh a lot and thoroughly enjoy reading about the rather hapless Paul Mitchell’s escapades.
Perfect for animal lovers the world over.’
Natasha Harding, Book Columnist, The Sun

‘A romp of a book! Take a loveable goofy vet with a heart of gold, plonk him in some crazy animal situations and laugh out loud as he reacts as only he can. I read the book in a day and annoyed everyone in the house by alternating between giggling and shaking my head. A must-read, highly recommended.’
Simon Dawson, author of Pigs in Clover
‘An entertaining fast-paced bedtime read that any animal lover will enjoy.
It provides a humorous insight into the world of a vet.’
Sue Parslow, Editor, Your Cat magazine
‘Living as I do, on a tropical island with a permanently hungry dog and ten raucous chickens tends to produce a few animal-related laughs, but nowhere near as many as this fun book does. Follow the adventures of a young vet as he gets to grips with amusing animals of all shapes and sizes. A great way to spend an entertaining afternoon in a hammock under the palms.’
