Ask the Animals: A Vet's-Eye View of Pets
and the People They Love

by Bruce R. Coston

Ask the Animals - cover Reminiscent of James Herriot’s wonderful books, Coston’s memoir "Ask the Animals: A Vet's-Eye View of Pets and the People They Love" offers zany, sad, and touching stories about a medical practice where the patients cannot speak, yet communicate deeply.

Bruce R. Coston’s first book is a warm, funny, and amazingly fulfilling celebration of the wonderful world of animals as seen through the eyes of a small-town veterinarian.

The patients are an eclectic and surprising cast of characters who display incredible bravery and nobility at times, and unbelievable goofiness at others. There’s Sandy, the dog who resurrected herself from death. There’s Daphne, the transvestite cat who taught Bruce to be a cat person. And the owners are no less engaging, ranging from the angelic to the squeamish, teaching Bruce what it really means to be an animal doctor.

Readers will gain insight into the pathos and passion, the mundane and extraordinary, the thigh-slapping humor and the crushing sadness of a vet’s life as he seeks to mend and restore people’s treasured companions. Written with great warmth, this book imparts a deeper understanding of the pets who daily enrich our lives.
