The Highland vet : a year at Thurso

Gordon, Guy2022
Books, Manuscripts
From conducting farm animal caesarean sections in the early hours to missing family plans in order to treat critically injured pet dogs, no two days in the work of vet Guy Gordon and his team are ever the same. Based in Thurso, northern Scotland, the small group of vets and their supporting staff cover a vast area of more than 1000 square miles. The incredibly wild and rural landscape in which they operate brings a huge variety of work depending on the seasons, with the delivery of new-born lambs and calves in the spring, and the arrival of seal pups to the northern Scottish coast starting in the autumn months. 'The Highland Vet' shows what working in one of Britain's most beautiful and remote locations really involves. Inside, Guy and his team share the high and lows, up and downs and ins and outs of their daily work throughout the course of a year.
