Imagine going from neurologist to dermatologist, orthopaedic surgeon to obstetrician, assassin to saviour – all in one day. Welcome to the extraordinary world of veterinary medicine… Imagine going from neurologist to dermatologist, orthopaedic surgeon to obstetrician, assassin to saviour – all in one day. Welcome to the extraordinary world of veterinary medicine… In Never Work with Animals, vet Gareth Steel shares the moments of humour, horror and heroism across his 20-year career caring for creatures great and small, from bulls to stick insects. Thought-provoking, heartwarming and often laugh-out-loud funny, this unforgettable memoir reveals what life is really like for our vets. ‘Packed with self-deprecating and darkly comic anecdotes… but there’s plenty of warmth, too.’ – The Sunday Times ‘In this fascinating and humorous memoir, Gareth reveals the unfiltered truth of life as a vet and the desperate lengths we go to for the love of animals.’ – Sunday Express ‘Gareth Steels shows the challenging reality of his day-to-day life in this informative and entertaining account of his career.’ – Daily Mirror ‘This gritty yet tender-hearted book is essential reading for anyone thinking of training as [a vet]. It will leave you with renewed respect for Britain’s vets and the difficult, emotionally draining work they carry out.’ – Daily Mail The unfiltered truth about life as a vet Gareth Steel was born and grew up in rural Southwest Scotland. As a result of a broken arm during a rugby game and the extra study time it imposed, he did better in his exams than he could possibly have expected. He was accepted into the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Glasgow in 1998 and graduated in 2003. With occasional breaks for trips to the mountains and working abroad, he has worked in veterinary medicine ever since. The unfiltered truth about life as a vet · As The Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick (over 300,000 copies sold) has demonstrated there is a huge appetite for true life vet stories that depict the real, more extreme aspects of veterinary care and surgery· Gareth writes with much compassion but also sharp humour so it will also appeal to readers of Adam Kay’s This Is Going to Hurt. Other comparisons include Julian Norton (50k tcm) and Marc Abraham (20k tcm)· The memoirs of vets are very much back in vogue due to the enormous success of Channel 5’s All Creatures Great and Small· Gareth is highly promotable and speaks candidly and passionately about his veterinary career in contrast to his time in the Army Competition: Being the Supervet;How Animals Saved My Life;Listening to the Animals;Call the Vet;All Creatures Great and Small;The Yorkshire Vet;This is Going to Hurt;Heroic Animals.
