CARRY ON VET by Shirley Morton

When Shirley Morton decided, at the age of 50, to look for a part-time job, chasing goats around the paddock was not what she had in mind. But a background as a music teacher and a pedigree dog breeder proved just what the local country vet was looking for in his new nurse, and Shirley became part of the surgery team.

As well as feeding the goats, her duties included assisting at operations, administering medication and minding the reception desk - for "clients" from dairy cows to pet Corgis. Life as a vet's nurse (or "vetsbody", as Shirley soon more aptly termed it) ranged from back-breaking to heart-breaking and left little time to admire the rural scenery.

Whether describing the escapades of the animals or the idiosyncrasies of their owners, Shirley Morton's stories combine humour and pathos. Her genuine enjoyment of and warmth, towards animals and people make 'Carry on Vet' a pleasure to read.
