Synopsis

'Heartwarming and hilarious' Telegraph



'With as many horrifying stories as heart-warming ones, this is a fascinating look at the year in the life of a vet at a London animal charity hospital. There are some proper belly laughs as well as some insights that will truly stick with you.' - Alexandra Heminsley, Grazia



An unusual 'dalmation', a TV star with cancer, an out of control budgie. Charlotte Rea has seen them all, and more.



Animal Matters is Charlotte's diary of real-life cases written during a one year of her work as a veterinary surgeon in a 24-hour inner-city London animal charity. The diary reveals the reality of working as a vet, how it can be both emotional and amusing, one minute you can be consoling an owner on the loss of their much-loved pet, the next trying to catch an escaped budgie. Charlotte mixes deeply sad moments with amusing and unimaginable ones along with more detailed accounts and reflections back on her training and the experiences she has come up against over the decade since she graduated.



Throughout the book you will get to know both the animals and the people and how close the bond between us can be. Charlotte also discusses contemporary issues in veterinary medicine such as animal euthanasia, RSPCA welfare cases, mental health issues within the veterinary profession, ethical concerns around pedigree dog breeding and the laws on dangerous dogs.



Animal Matters is a moving and heartwarming book about the unconditional love between animals and humans.
