Summary
"Physicians used to make house calls. Today, a few veterinarians still do. Duncan MacVean, DVM, is one such vet. His patients range from cats and dogs to pigs and lizards -- each of them a unique personality. Every animal and every home is different, but every owner is the same in their affection for their companions. The hilarious and the heartbreaking come together in this collection of true tales, all gathered from his lifelong career. Without warning, MacVean finds himself in odd situations: stepping into a basement full of free-flying bats or struck speechless by a pig who loves opera so much that she falls into a trance. On another house call, a woman with terminal cancer earnestly wants to know where pets go when they pass away -- will her beloved cat and dog join her in the afterlife? Navigating the finer elements of human and animal interaction isn't easy. In My Patients Like Treats, MacVean's dedication to the animals of this earth and compassion for their human caretakers drives him onward, from house to house, patient to patient."--
