Coming Soon: Adventures in Veterinary Medicine

Adventures_in_Veterinary Medicine_Ingrid_King

I’m excited to announce my new book, Adventures in Veterinary Medicine:What Working in Veterinary Hospitals Taught Me About Life, Love, and Myself. The book offers a unique look at what really goes on in a veterinary hospital through the eyes of a former veterinary hospital manager, aka, yours truly. The book provides insight into what makes veterinary medicine such a rewarding profession through a series of stories about some of the pets I connected with during my twelve years working in the field.

Early Praise for Adventures in Veterinary Medicine

From Dr. Marty Becker, “America’s Veterinarian” and resident veterinarian for “Good Morning America:

“As a ‘veteran veterinarian’ with more than 30 years in practice, I found myself nodding in recognition throughout Ingrid King’s heartwarming book. Take a look behind the scenes at my beloved profession, and the people and pets who make veterinary medicine a rewarding adventure. You won’t regret it, I promise.”

From Amy Shojai, award winning author of 26 pet care and behavior books:

“Ingrid King offers a unique glimpse beyond the waiting-room door into the inner workings of a veterinary hospital. This collection of essays–each spotlighting a special animal friend from her past–shares smiles and poignant lessons learned from her years working in the profession. From the emergency vet care “dance” to respectfully performed “poop-duty,” this  purr-fectly charming book will make you appreciate your pets’ clinic caretakers even more. Highly recommended!”

From Lorie Huston, DVM, veterinarian and award winning writer/blogger:

“I loved Adventures in Veterinary Medicine. Ingrid King’s stories are both poignant and entertaining. Her narrative very accurately reveals what life is like for those of us in the veterinary profession. A quick, easy read, I highly recommend this book.”

Adventures in Veterinary Medicine will be coming to a Kindle near you soon. If you don’t have a Kindle, don’t worry. You can download a free reading app to read this and other Kindle books on your PC, Mac, iPad, Android tablet and smartphone.

Conscious Cat Sunday will return next week.

    Everyone is so happy – am I the only one dreaming of a paper book I can put under my pillow or take to the bathroom with me? The format may work for you younger people but trying to read a flickering LCD screen with bifocals is no pleasure. At All. Neither on my computer nor anywhere else where I cannot dog-ear pages and use yellow sticky-notes to mark passages I especially want to remember. So, that’s my thoughts but it looks like I’m in the minority here. Congratulations, Ingrid. From the bottom of my non-technical heart.

      Monica, I never thought I’d enjoy reading on a e-reader, but I love my Kindle. I’ll never stop wanting to read “real” books, but it’s opened up a whole new world of books to me.

    This is just great news. Congratulations! As a side note I am going to buy this for sure just because it is going to come out in an accessible format right from the get go. You get high fives from me just for that alone. Look forward to reading it when it comes out

    Looking forward to reading your new book! As someone now close to retirement who wishes she had followed her dream of working with animals instead of allowing her parents to direct her to be an administrative assistant, I always enjoy reading about the lives of people who have worked with animals.
