Editorial Reviews

Review

Most of My Patients Wear Fur is a must read for every pet owner and animal lover. --Jeffrey Klausner, DVM, MS, DACVIM, President and CEO of the Animal Medical Center in New York City

Most of My Patients Wear Fur is a very amusing, fun read. It is like a modern day James Herriott. --Jonathan Greenfield, D.V.M. and host of the Family Pet Show, News 12, Long Island

Learn something new about the family pet by taking a look at veterinary health care through the compassionate eyes of Elizabette Cohen, D.V.M. As a twenty year veteran of treating and saving the lives of beloved companion animals and exotics, Dr. Cohen shares her best-of-the-best office visit stories that range from describing specific treatments to revealing some of her clients' most unusual pet-related beliefs. Her anecdotes, including her city upbringing with animals, are informative and are also told in vivid detail with great humor which is sure to tickle every animal enthusiast's funny bone. The book is chock full of pet medical knowledge and a few training tips, and is told in layman's terms making it a fun and easy reference piece. Readers will experience all the important elements of a thorough physical examination while learning about the medical responsibilities of rearing a pet, including the importance of spay/neuter. Dr. Cohen's humane philosophy and dedication to providing cutting-edge care for her four-legged patients and their guardians shines through. Most of My Patients Wear Fur will appeal to both seasoned pet owners and first-timers. Two paws up! --Alicyn Leigh, Pets columnist for the Long Island Press and National Pet Advocate

I absolutely LOVE this book! Dr. Cohen's book is filled with so much VALUABLE information; you can actually help protect and keep your pet safe and healthy by reading this book. Even if you don't own a pet, you will be entertained by the amusing stories, and you'll impress your pet-owner friends with the information you will be able to share.

Some stories give you an inside look at what goes on in an animal hospital (VERY interesting!), and other stories tell about some amazing experiences in the life of a veterinarian. A very funny story about an Iguana had me laughing out loud, while reading about the hectic rush to save a dog who ingested poisonous antifreeze had me on the edge of my seat!

The entire book is an enjoyable, easy read - I almost felt as though Dr. Cohen was sitting across from me, engaging in a good conversation.

Highly Recommended!

Dr. Cohen's book was awesome to read! It is one of those books you just can't put down. I recommend any first time pet owners to read this book. She wrote it so well that anyone can understand how important the simple things are to your pets health.
As a professional in the same field it was enjoyable to read how we experience the same feelings for animals in our youth, schooling, and working years. No matter how sad things can get the power of unconditional love can make it so rewarding.
The book is well worth its cost, and if you ever get to meet her she will sign it for you too.

Dr. Cohen's stories of her love for animals is uplifting and enjoyable. I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in entering the animal world wheather it is adoption of a pet or working with them. This book gives you the inside ups and downs of dealing with people with their pets. She makes you realize that the profession although sometimes sad is definately a joyful and rewarding calling. What could be better than to care for God's creatures. Congratulations to you Dr. Cohen for being one of the special people who have this special calling.

I purchased this book by chance and I have to say that I loved it. The great short stories are easy to read and educational; my 17 month old son loved it and kept bringing it back to me to read more and more. I am an "animal person" but this book taught me so much more that I think anyone would ever tell. Dr. Cohen's no nonsense tell all approach was so comforting and down to earth. I highly recommend this book to all even if you're not so into animals.
