'Luke Gamble is a West Country treasure . . . like Dr Doolittle but real!' * Martin Clunes * 'A gamut of emotions; laughter, serious weeping, but always enjoyable' * Clarissa Dickson Wright * 'In this book, Luke Gamble tells of the horror of the 2001 foot and mouth outbreak from a personal angle with the terrible consequences on the farmers he visits, challenging you to keep a dry eye. But not content with the challenges of everyday vet work, he embarks on an epic 152-mile run across the Sahara to raise money for his charity and win the heart of his wife Cordelia.' * BBC Countryfile Magazine 4 stars *
About the Author
Luke Gamble graduated from Bristol University in 1999 as a vet and then went on to Cambridge to specialise in large animal medicine and surgery. Although primarily based in his New Forest practice, Pilgrims, his extra curricular work with the Worldwide Veterinary Service charity 'which he founded in 2003' takes him much further afield and was the subject of two TV series on Sky 1. He also runs an emergency service for animals in Dorset and a pet travel company. Luke is a black belt in karate, has run 152 miles across the Sahara to raise money for his charity 'and to impress his wife' and in 2010 was awarded the JA Wight 'James Herriot' Award by the British Small Animal Veterinary Association for outstanding contributions to the welfare of companion animals. Luke is married 'to a vet' and lives in New Forest with his three children, Angel the ridgeback and a bossy rescue cat called Charlie. The Vet: my wild and wonderful friends was his first book, which he followed-up with The Vet: the big wild world.
