With dramatic full-color photos throughout, award-winning author Donna Jackson brings to life the inner workings of an animal emergency room, profiling the important work ER veterinarians do behind closed doors. Animals survive traumas with the help of high-tech X-rays, ventilators, endoscopes, and more importantly, the expert care of veterinarians and veterinary nurses who love animals, science, and a daily dose of adrenaline! It takes loads of courage and compassion to be an ER vet!
