They can surgically remove an arrow in a cat's abdomen, repair a bird's broken wing, even save a tiny foal that is in a coma. How? With high-tech x-rays, endoscopes, and electrocardiographs--but most important, with a love of science and animals. Twenty-four hours a day, with a team of anesthesiologists, cardiologists, ophthalmologists, nurses, internists, residents, and a healthy dose of adrenaline, emergency room veterinarians try to heal these little--and large--creatures we consider part of our families.

Filled with full-color behind-the-scenes photographs, this book captures the drama, excitement, and courage of being an ER vet.

A really good nonfiction book for younger readers about being a vet, specifically an ER vet. Readers will learn what these vets do. There are many real animal photos in this book but nothing too graphic for a young reader. The book is also very entertaining and is a good book for a kid considering being a vet to read.

It's mostly happy endings, but not exclusively. This is a great book for those with a medical curiousity. Great for aspiring vets and vet assistants.
