A day in the life of an exotic animal veterinarian

unlikelyHave you ever had a a parrot for a pet – or even a pig?

Dr. Laurie Hess knows that our exotic or unusual pets are just as important to us as our cats and dogs.  She’s board-certified by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in avian medicine, past president of the Association of Avian Veterinarians, and a member of both the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians and the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians.

She’s written a book that will bring the reader into her world, sharing stories of her patients (and the clients who come with them!) and reminding us that, whether they have fur, feathers, or scales, our pets provide us with endless happiness.

Unlikely Companions  will open a window into the practice of an exotic animal veterinarian, and would make a perfect gift for your animal-loving friends and family members.
