'Lively sense of humour, and a pleasant, easy-going writing style. Animal lovers will be well-pleased with her pacy anecdotes' -- Irish Examiner The Irish Examiner 'Gillian is not afraid to tell of her failures, nor is she ashamed to admit to shedding a few tears from time to time. There is nothing boastful or egotistical. It is very well written in an easy-flow style, and it would make a lovely ... present for an animal lover, especially one who does not object to gory details.' -- Irish Farmer's Journal 'This book is just hilarious. Suffice to quote the story of Gillian being called out to tend a guard dog called Rambo, who 'could best be described as a cross between a Rhodesian Ridgeback and a Rottweiler, with a bit of German Shepherd thrown in for good measure'. When she nervously approaches the giant beast in his kennel, the diagnosis was obvious. 'Rambo was stoned'. It emerged that the vigilent guard dog had chased off a drug dealer -- then consumed the prohibited substances abandoned in the persuit. This is Gillian Hick's first book, but will no doubt be the first of many in the James Herriot mould.' -- Countryman 'An enjoyable light-hearted look behind the scenes at the world of veterinary medicine. Buy it for a would-be veterinary student or anyone who comes from a farming background - it's sure to please.' -- The Irish World It's an engaging account of the situations she encounters where the humans are often more problematic than the animals, particularly the guys who want to know where the real vet is.' -- The Irish Independent Irish Independent
