Confessions of a veterinary nurse

Even as a small child, Tracey dreamed of a career working with animals. That dream became a reality in 1986 when she secured a training position at a local veterinary practice. Fresh-faced and eager to learn, Tracey was thrown headfirst into life in a busy mixed animal practice. From pigs to pugs and from calves to kittens, from day one Tracey realised that this was going to be no ordinary job. Assisting in life-saving and tricky operations, nursing sick animals back to health, and shedding more than a tear or two, this is a humorous and sometimes bittersweet account of the life and times of a veterinary nurse, for whom no two days are ever the same.
