Cure It or Shoot It
by Doug Fenwick
Here is a real-life cameo of the life of an initially-naive country veterinarian from 1955 to 1980. It gives factual descriptions of the medical and surgical challenges experienced in a job with irregular hours and which was frequently hard, frequently dirty, often difficult and often dangerous. Read about a bygone era when there was limited knowledge, limited help and no specialist back-ups.
