Never Turn Your Back on an Angus Cow: My Life as a Country Vet

By Jan Pol, David Fisher, Dr Jan Pol
The star of "The Incredible Dr. Pol "shares his amusing, and often poignant, tales from his four decades as a vet in rural Michigan.
Dr. Jan Pol is not your typical veterinarian. Born and raised the in Netherlands on a dairy farm, he is the star of Nat Geo Wild s hit show "The Incredible Dr. Pol" and has been treating animals in rural Michigan since the 1970s. Dr. Pol s more than 20,000 patients have ranged from white mice to 2600-pound horses and everything in between.
From the time he was twelve years old and helped deliver a litter of piglets on his family s farm to the incredible moments captured on his hit TV show, Dr. Pol has amassed a wealth of stories of what it s like caring for this menagerie of animals. He shares his own story of growing up surrounded by animals, training to be a vet in the Netherlands, and moving to Michigan to open his first practice in a pre fab house. He has established himself as an empathetic yet no-nonsense vet who isn t afraid to make the difficult decisions in order to do what s best for his patients and their hard-working owners. A sick pet can bring heartache, but a sick cow or horse could threaten the very livelihood of a farmer whose modest profits are dependent on healthy livestock.
Reminiscent of the classic books of James Herriot, "Never Turn Your Back on an Angus Cow"is a charming, fascinating, and funny memoir that will delight animal lovers everywhere."
