Product description

Review

"Nick Trout is back with a follow-up to his best-selling Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing, and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon. It's filled with the same engaging writing readers now expect from Trout, who is often compared to James Herriot. And as lovers of dog stories know, that is a very good thing."
--USA Today

Veterinarian Trout offers up a surefire comfort read for Animal Planet fans with this intimate look at the lives of two dogs and the people who loved them...Easily traversing the border between science and society, Trout's chronicle will appeal to readers from teens to grandparents."
--Booklist

"What he's really writing about, and teaching the rest of us, is how to truly live."
--The Free Lance-Star

"Trout, a surgeon at Boston's Angell Animal Medical Center and best-selling author of Tell Me Where It Hurts, delivers his heartfelt account with a humorous introspection that reaffirms the extraordinary level of caring veterinarians can have for their patients. Highly recommended for lovers of animals of all shapes and sizes."
--Library Journal

"Dr. Trout has given us a remarkable love story, reminding us of the preciousness of every life, human or animal."
-- Jeffrey Zaslow, coauthor of The Last Lecture

"Helen and Cleo are simply two of the most unforgettable canine souls I've ever encountered. Written with candor, wisdom, and empathy, Love is the Best Medicine will change everything you thought you knew about the impact pets can have on our lives. If you've ever loved a dog, this is the book for you!"
--Gwen Cooper, author of Homer's Odyssey

"I sat in my human mom's lap while she read Love is the Best Medicine. She liked it a lot and said 'Everyone should read this book!' She laughed, and I had to lick the tears from her cheeks when she cried."
-- Bogie, dog of New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

"A riveting emotional roller coaster into the behind the scenes life of a veterinarian."
--Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation and Animals Make us Human

"Dr. Nick Trout's latest work is an unflinchingly honest journey through love, loss, and redemption. This is a book not only for anyone who has ever loved an animal, but for all who have loved. Dr. Trout allows us an intimate glimpse into the heart of a veterinary surgeon, and the souls of the patients he fights to save. There are many lessons here: of hope conquering fear, joy triumphing over grief, and family getting us through it all. "
-Dr. Louise Murray, author of Vet Confidential

"This beautifully written book is from the heart and soul of Dr. Nick Trout; an extraordinary veterinary surgeon who has found that perfect balance of genuine compassion and dedicated skill. He eloquently reveals the undeniable importance of our relationship with animals and the rich rewards of having them in our lives. Utterly delightful and compelling, Love is the Best Medicine is a must read."
--Melanie Sue Bowles, author of The Horses of Proud Spirit and Hoof Prints: More Stories from Proud Spirit
