Veterinarian Brad Brown never knew what to expect when he was called.

Whether he was trying to geld a spooked stallion in a blizzard or found himself in the middle of an all-out fracas involving a monkey’s abscessed tooth and a shotgun, he took it in stride, with great affection for both his four-legged patients and his two-legged clients.

About the Author

Bradford B. Brown, DVM, grew up on a farm in Vasselboro, Maine, and like two of his brothers, graduated from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. He joined his brother Phil's veterinary practice in Belfast, Maine, where they worked together for thirteen years, and then continued on his own for ten more, running a small-animal hospital and making hundreds of farm calls.

After he retired to the family farm in Vasselboro, he began writing about the people and animals and many adventures he had enjoyed.
