Review: ER vets: Life in an Animal Emergency Room by Donna M Jackson

I never realized before how much our relationship towards animals has changed in such a relatively short time.  From just taking care of livestock which served a need to maintain the ability of people to work to today where we consider pets part of the family and will take necessary medical measures to ensure their health and well being.  ER vets and specialists are a relatively new 'thing'.  This book tells of the vets at a premier veterinary hospital in Colorado.  It tells of some of their success stories and some where they did their best.  It has sections defining the specialties involved and measures they take.  And it does it all in a lot of wonderful pictures.  It also has sections on how they help owners with their grief and what should be in your own pet first aid kid.

It is an interesting and informative read but more an overview than anything in depth.  But it is worth it for the pictures alone.
