Abstract:

The animal happenings that concern a chief vet in one of the world's largest zoos are of enormous interest--and come in all shapes and sizes. This beautiful picture story shows the vet at work day by day, brining you directly in contact with animals at their most vulnerable: a baby monkey is born, four baby elephants arrive, a huge rogue bear departs, a hawk goes into a deep depression, a gorilla's rheumatic fever is cured. Since many animals respond poorly to handling and treatment, infinite amounts of patience and sympathy are needed, as well as medical skill. The drama, intensity and warmth of this vet's everyday contacts with the animals and birds he cares for and loves makes a delightful study for animal lovers of any age.
