Inhaltsangabe: Working at the sharp end, Scottish vet Hugh Cran describes his daily and nightly challenges working in Kenya as he encounters rabid dogs, a horse pageant that goes horribly wrong, missing tortoises, entire herds of sick cattle and corrupt policemen: he even witnesses how a witchdoctor successfully identifies a thief. Busy from early morning to midnight, Hugh never turns down a call to help an animal in distress, even if this means driving across floods or deserts, surviving vehicle break-downs or insanitary operating conditions on arrival. In this book, Hugh falls in love, marries and starts a family, climbs Kenyan mountains, survives a life-threatening health crisis, a surgery fire and a serious legal accusation. Throughout it all, he remains a dedicated and hardworking local vet, serving his African community, no matter what. He has promises to keep...
Inhaltsangabe: Hugh Cran has left his native Scotland to work as a vet in Kenya where he tends to the animals of the local ranchers and the domestic pets of the local community. His daily life is a ceaseless colourful wheel of dawn-to-dusk activity which offers Hugh an insight into the local tribes and the international ex-pat community in equal measure as he copes with rabied dogs to entire herds of sick cattle, and with a surgery fire, near-death on a fishing trip and, despite working 18 hour days, he even finds time to fall in love and start a family. Hugh s witty observations and professional approach, in which he always gives his clients his best, makes this a lively and engaging read about what it is to be a vet at the sharp end and to survive in Kenya."
