Overview
Gunshot injuries. Breeding disasters. Controlling trainers, nutty horse owners, warm hearted clients and "laugh-out-loud-funny stories that you just can't make up"- Dr. Courtney deals with it all in this lively series of tales about the life of a mobile vet in the Colorado Rockies. In her stories from thirteen years as a mobile horse vet, whether running IV - fluids on top of a mountain or squaring off against an unethical cutting horse owner who calls her "Little Lady," Diehl makes us laugh, cry and smile. It's a journey that brings the reader onto the farms and into the clinic and shows what it's really like to be a mobile veterinarian."

Equine veterinarian Diehl presents a fascinating account of her life and work that should be required reading for anyone interested in a career in veterinary medicine. The author has been a mobile vet for most of her career, driving around the Colorado Rockies and working out of a large truck that accommodates her medical equipment, her husband, and their two small daughters. In this lively memoir, she describes her love of animals, medicine, and science. Diehl's colorful stories cover everything from the humorous to the humiliating, with tales of equine gunshot wounds, castration, artificial insemination, and moon blindness. Animal lovers will find a lot to like here.
