Call the vet : my life as a young vet in the 1970s

Fogle, Bruce2021
Books, Manuscripts
In 1970, newly qualified vet Bruce Fogle arrived in London from Canada assuming that because he spoke English he would understand the English. He also thought that because he'd graduated from the world's best veterinary school he would understand how to be a decent vet. He quickly learned that both assumptions were quite wrong. Working at the prestigious Woodrow & Singleton, a surgery in the heart of Knightsbridge, Bruce's services were called upon by the most distinguished pet owners in Britain - from Duchesses and Sultans to Paul McCartney and Elizabeth Taylor. He also cared for the exotic inhabitants of the 'Zoo Department' at Harrods. Treating cats and dogs as well as alligators, monkeys and even a puma, with the support of the far more knowledgeable nurses around him, Bruce's veterinary education began in earnest leading to many unforgettable adventures.
