‘What a remarkable book – both howlingly funny and deeply moving. This veterinary oncologist’s story of looking after dogs and other animals, and looking after herself after her own cancer diagnosis, taught me volumes about illness, healthcare and love. Lucky Dog shows how much we have to learn from the animals in our lives and from those who care for them.’ – Will Schwalbe, New York Times bestselling author of The End of Your Life Book ClubWhat happens when a veterinary cancer surgeon thinks she has cancer herself? Enter Sarah Boston: a vet who suspects a suspicious growth in her neck is thyroid cancer. From the moment she uses her husband’s portable ultrasound machine to investigate her lump – he’s a vet, too – it’s clear this will not be your typical crisis-and- recovery memoir.Sarah takes us on a funny and thought-provoking journey through the human health care system from the perspective of an animal doctor. Weaving funny and poignant stories of dogs she’s treated along the way, this is an insightful memoir about what the human medical world can learn from the way we treat our canine counterparts. Lucky Dog teaches us to trust our instincts, be our own advocates, and most of all to laugh while we’re doing it.
