Having spent over 20 years working in Thirsk, literally following in the footsteps of Herriot, Julian could not believe that this famous and historic practice, of which he was part, would be sold to become part of a huge chain of small animal vets. Incredulous at the prospect, but impotent to stop the sale going ahead, Julian felt he had no option but to leave the practice he loved and look to start a new chapter in his veterinary career. This was a major change and not one he ever expected to have to make. This was hard enough, but made more challenging by the scrutiny that the popularity of Channel 5’s ‘The Yorkshire Vet’ had brought to him, the practice and the area around Thirsk. This book follows Julian’s passion for treating animals under his care, be they cows, sheep, pigs, horses, alpacas or dogs and cats and the interesting and amusing characters who own and care for them.
