The life of a veterinarian is challenging: keeping up with advances in medical care, making difficult decisions about people’s beloved companions, and, in the case of Dr. Doug Mader, navigating the social unrest in Los Angeles in the early 1990s. The Vet at Noah’s Ark: Stories of Survival from an Inner- City Animal Hospital follows Dr. Mader and his staff over the course of a year at his inner-city Los Angeles area veterinary hospital, where Dr. Mader treats not only dogs and cats, but also emus, skunks, snakes, foxes, monkeys, and a host of other exotic animals.
The heartfelt, sometimes hilarious, always suspenseful tales of the human-animal bond will strike a chord with animal lovers and pet owners everywhere.
