The Highland Vet: A Year at Thurso
By (author) Guy Gordon; By (author) The Thurso Veterinary Team
Discover the charms and challenges of working at Scotland’s most northerly mainland veterinary practice.From conducting farm animal caesarean sections in the early hours to missing family plans in order to treat critically injured pet dogs, no two days in the work of vet Guy Gordon and his team are ever the same.Based in Thurso, northern Scotland, the small group of vets and their supporting staff cover a vast area of more than one thousand square miles. The incredibly wild and rural landscape in which they operate brings a huge variety of work depending on the seasons, with the delivery of new-born lambs and calves in the spring, and the arrival of seal pups to the northern Scottish coast starting in the autumn months.The Highland Vet shows what working in one of Britain’s most beautiful and remote locations really involves. Inside, Guy and his team share the high and lows, up and downs and ins and outs of their daily work throughout the course of a year, making this a truly magical celebration of Scotland’s northern highlands, as well as the animals and people who call the region home.
