They can surgically remove an arrow in a cat’s abdomen, repair a bird’s broken wing, even save a tiny foal that is in a coma. How? With high-tech x-rays, endoscopes, and electrocardiographs — but most important, with a love of science and animals. Twenty-four hours a day, with a team of anesthesiologists, cardiologists, ophthalmologists, nurses, internists, residents, and a healthy dose of adrenaline, emergency room veterinarians try to heal these little — and large — creatures we consider part of our families.

Filled with full-color behind-the-scenes photographs, this book captures the drama, excitement, and courage of being an ER vet.
