Although autobiographical and nonfiction, EMERGENCY VET has all the compelling "page-turner" quality of a medical mystery. It is fascinating and exceedingly well written. Every devoted pet owner will cherish this book for its pathos and its valuable lessons.

Excellent reading

Thoroughly enjoyed this captivating book. Plan to give it as a gift to my vet.

Very exciting & I learned a lot of useful info. It=great:-)

I loved this book. I thought it was well written and had a lot of useful information. I thought that each event was independent in its own way. I never read the same thing over again and if it was the same symptoms they would be taken care of better from past experiences. In all, this is my favorite book. I am very happy that I read this book it has given me great knowledge about animals that I will almost always remember. Some parts were funny and cute, but others were serious and possibly fatal. I love Lillian Roberts, she writes from her point of view as a vet and her dealings with all the different people and animals. Their personalities, attitudes, expectations, and fears.

Excellent, exciting and enlightening!

Dr. Roberts states in her excellent book, "I'm no James Herriot." But this book is every bit as good as any of his. It produces a wide range of emotions and effects: laughter, tears, suspense and goosebumps. I love the way Dr. Roberts alternates between clinic stories and personal history. This book gives the reader a view into what a vet has to deal with, from both the animal and the human sides. It will help readers become more aware of the firm realities of what it's like to be a veterinarian. I plan to buy more copies of the book and give them to my dogs' vets. Congratulations to Dr. Roberts on an excellent job!
