While You're Here, Doc by Bradford B. Brown, DVM

Veterinarian Brad Brown never knew what to expect when he was called out to a farm to deal with a sick cow or an injured horse.

Invariably the cash-strapped farmer would say, "While you're here, Doc" and rattle off a list of surprise medical chores that weren't part of the original call. 

Nevertheless, whether he was trying to geld a spooked stallion in a blizzard or found himself in the middle of an all-out fracas involving a monkey's abscessed tooth and a shotgun, Dr. Brown took it in stride, with great affection for his four-legged patients as well as his two-legged clients.

Brad Brown is James Herriot, Baxter Black, and E. B. White rolled into one and wearing rubber boots.

While You're Here, Doc: Farmyard Adventures of a Maine Veterinarian gives us a wonderful set of stories from the life of a country vet.

Tilbury House® is an independent publishing company that began about thirty years ago as Harpswell Press, publishing Maine books. They grew slowly, adding some children's books, and in 1990 merged with another small publisher, the Dog Ear Press, to become Tilbury House, Publishers.

Their children's book division took off with the publication of Talking Walls, and it has continued to publish award-winning children's picture books about cultural diversity, social justice, nature, and the environment. Tilbury's adult books are primarily regional non-fiction, mostly history, some maritime history, and some environmental work. But every once in a while something different comes up that they can't resist, and they publish that too!
