Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon
Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon

Book Review by Marty Tousley, Bereavement Counselor

Presented as a single, very busy day in the life of a dedicated, sensitive, highly skilled and very funny veterinarian, this delightful book takes us inside the examining, treatment, operating and recovery rooms of Boston's Angell Animal Medical Center. Nick Trout is every animal lover's dream: an experienced and highly skilled staff surgeon who understands and accepts pet parents as graciously as the animals he treats, and who honors and celebrates the human-animal bond. With wit, wisdom, empathy and compassion, he shares stories spanning his 25 years as an animal surgeon. His work requires the skills of a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a coach, a nutritionist, a therapist, an esthetician and a grief counselor, to name but a few. I wish I could have read this book at an earlier point in my own career — I may well have chosen a different career path for myself. As Publisher's Weekly observes, "This is a perfect gift for anyone considering becoming a veterinarian."
