"When the telephone rang at 11 pm that night, the last thing I imagined I would hear was, 'For Christ's sake get here quick mister, he's grown another bleedin' leg!'"
This heart-warming account of veterinary life traces Ivor Smith's early days as a student at university through setting up his own practice in the Cotswolds, recounting a memorable 40 years in the profession. Following in the Herriot tradition of veterinary humour, Ivor's memories of life as a vet in a very mixed practice include hilarious incidents, colourful local characters, and engaging patients - from calving cows in the middle of cold spring nights and handling ferocious gerbils, to setting up home in a mouse-infested farmhouse, and even finding a new-born baby on his doorstep.
