Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

It all begins at 2:47 a.m. Then over one twenty-four-hour period, Dr. Trout fights for the life of a ten-year-old German shepherd, battles disease in the operating room, unravels tricky diagnoses, reassures frantic pet parents, and reflects on the humor, heartache, and inspiration in his life as an animal surgeon. And he wants to take you along for the ride.

You’ll learn about the amazing progress of modern animal medicine, in which organ transplants, joint replacements, and state-of-the-art cancer treatments have become more and more common. With these technological advances come controversies and complexities that Dr. Trout thoughtfully explores, such as at what cost and how long treatments should be given, how the Internet has changed pet care, and the rise in cosmetic surgery.

Here are heartwarming stories of struggle and survival, as well as hilarious and delightful anecdotes about cuddly and not-so-cuddly pets and their variously zany, desperate, and demanding owners. Tell Me Where It Hurts offers a fascinating portrait of the comedy and drama, complexities and rewards involved with loving and healing animals.

From the front lines of modern medicine, Tell Me Where It Hurts is a fascinating inside look at a veterinarian, his furry patients, and the blend of old-fashioned instincts and cutting-edge technology that defines pet care in the twenty-first century. For anyone who’s ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at your veterinarian’s office, Tell Me Where It Hurts offers a vicarious journey through twenty-four intimate, eye-opening, heartrending hours at the premier Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fabulous…The best veterinary book that’s been written since All Creatures Great and Small.Oregonian (Portland, Oregon)
“Combining a compassionate bedside manner with cutting-edge technology, Trout takes readers on a twenty-four-hour roller-coaster ride…Humorous, winning, and wise, Tell Me Where It Hurts is an inside look at a fascinating profession.” Barnes&Noble.com
“Shows how the daily life of a veterinarian requires the ability to be a social worker, a psychologist, a grief counselor, mentor, carpenter, plumber, cosmetologist, athletic coach, magician, grim reaper, and, occasionally, guardian angel.” Publishers Weekly
“Simon Vance adeptly captures the mixture of pulse-pounding drama, heartfelt emotion, and sarcastic humor in Trout’s lively writing…Trout’s dedication and love of animals come through.” AudioFile
“With refreshing frankness, Trout offers lucid observations on animal-human relationships…Trout thoughtfully considers the myriad of treatment options available for twenty-first-century pets, the impact of technology on the veterinary profession, and larger ethical and quality-of-life issues. Recommended for all libraries.” Library Journal
“Far from the rustic environs of James Herriot’s Yorkshire Dales comes an equally heartwarming, yet high-tech, memoir of a veterinarian…[Trout] writes with equal facility of the clinical side of animal surgery and the emotional side of the human bond with animals…An addictively readable chronicle of what it means to be a veterinarian today.” Booklist
“A seasoned veterinarian shares some memorable cases…[Includes] a lively discussion of euthanasia, a high point in the book.” Kirkus Reviews
“With Vance’s smooth delivery, Trout’s informative asides about the state of his often romanticized and largely misunderstood profession flow nicely into the action. The dramatic tension reaches a climax worthy of ER or Grey’s Anatomy, and Vance’s portrayal of one family soap opera, featuring a lonely widower hoping for a miracle to save the life of his beloved German shepherd…proves especially electrifying.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
