Joe Inglis, star of BBC 1's award-winning series Vets in Practice has written his diary for a year.
It spans his first job after finishing training with a small Devonshire practice where farmyard crises loom large, to an urban one where domestic pets in trouble are more the norm - although he had to give the kiss of life to a snake on camera! Even the newly qualified, raw young vet, can see that there are good vets and bad, sound practice and short-cuts.
Joe Inglis' diary is very amusing and full of incident - but also outspoken about some aspects of 'caring' for animals, the countryside and about people who keep animals.
