Revue de presse

'As warm and entertaining as Herriot, Emma's sense of humour shines through the trials and triumphs of the life of a vet.' (Steve Leonard )

'Funny and pertinent to all of us who have pets, and probably disturbing for those that don't!' (Rick Wakeman )

'Right from the Introduction any animal lover will be drawn into this enchanting and amusing account of veterinary life. Emma Milne tells of her early career as a vet in practice, in a brilliantly honest and warm way, vividly recounting the ups and downs of the novice vet. A highly entertaining read coupled with the obvious passion that Emma has for her subject matter. James Herriot, in his country practice, would have much in common with this version of life as an animals' doctor.' (Clarissa Baldwin OBE )

'Emma is a classic twenty first century vet; young, female and opinionated, with reality television celebrity status. Her tales - of animals, farmers, pet owners and television cameras - are both engaging and entertaining.' (Pete Wedderburn, the Daily Telegraph vet )

'This book is delightful, amusing and honest, like Emma.' (Christopher Timothy )

'A bluntly honest and eye-opening book that takes one on a most fascinating journey behind the traditional "shop front" of the veterinary world… an absolute must-read for all animal lovers.' (Allen Parton, author of Endal )

'A sensitive but sometimes harrowing account of the challenges facing a greenhorn vet directly out of vet school. I found this book a joy to read. I could relate to the fears and exhilaration that Emma felt in those early days and how her confidence gained momentum. The learning curve will continue through her life, but with Emma at the helm, it could only be good for our animal friends.' (Terry Nutkins )

'I have every respect for someone who can put their hand up a half-ton cow, and then pull it out to write so engagingly about the experience.' (Andrew Dilger, author of Dash: Bitch of the Year )

'The adventures of "Vets in Practice" star Milne, this is the personal side of the TV programme told with great humour.' (The Bookseller )

'A great little book that will make both tails and tongues wag.' (David Bellamy )

'Reading this book has proved to be a delightful, stunning experience. It is a celebration, an account of some of the adventures in the early life of a young vet. I simply couldn't put it down! Emma Milne writes with gravitas and soul, combined with a rare gift for infectious humour. … This book is a tour de force. … Boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen, I urge you to immerse yourself in this book and emerge at the end with every cell in your body happily changed!' (From the foreword by Brian Blessed )

'Like reading a transcript of my first job, Tales from the Tail End captures a vet's journey from student to practicing clinician brilliantly... with liberal yet totally well-founded splatterings of crazy when describing our beloved clients and ourselves. A great read!' --Scott Miller

'Funny and pertinent to all of us who have pets, and probably disturbing for those that don't!' --Rick Wakeman

Présentation de l'éditeur

Misty was ecstatic to see her owner but to the nurse’s surprise her owner just stood there and said, ‘What have you done with my dog’s head?’

‘I’m sorry,’ replied the nurse, ‘what do you mean? She’s just been in for spaying.’

‘That isn’t my dog’s head. The rest of it is my dog but you’ve put a different head on it.’

On a crisp October morning in 1996, Emma Milne started her first job as a newly qualified vet, a career captured on camera for eleven series of television’s Vets in Practice. Now she tells the full story. We discover the numerous things that can get stuck in an animal’s stomach, how to stop a cow exploding, and – the biggest truth of all – that animals are easy to deal with in comparison to their owners.

They say that truth is stranger than fiction, and these Tales from the Tail End turn out to be stranger – and funnier – than you could ever have imagined…

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great window into the life & work of a new veterinarian 20 juillet 2013
Par Elliott Garber - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
As a fellow veterinarian and animal lover, I really enjoyed hearing these collected stories from Emma Milne's early career. I've never seen the Vets in Practice TV show for which she became famous in the UK (since I'm an American), but the book stands alone in providing an appealing window into the life and work of a new veterinarian. Her stories are funny, touching, sad, exciting, and everything in between.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A lovely read. 29 octobre 2013
Par Julie Haigh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I used to love the James Herriott vet series, both in book form and on TV. I have seen the TV programmes 'Vets In Practice' so I was pleased to find this factual book in the Amazon top 100 by Emma Milne who was often featured on the programme. This book contains cases from the TV days at the practice and also has many moments about Emma's home life, her pets and her courtship and marriage to fellow vet Joe Inglis who was also featured on the Vets In Practice programme. It has comic moments and parts that tug at your heartstrings, also parts where you really feel you have learnt something. Well-told, it is an enriching read.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best book read lately. 17 mai 2014

I was sorry when this book was finished, as the vet describes her life so well, you just don't want her to leave you on the last page.

A must have for anyone that loves animals.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great tails! 13 avril 2014

I loved this book, perhaps especially as one of my granddaughters is determined to be a vet herself, so we both read it together - and it didn't put her off! Excellent book.

This Veterinary Story is set in England. I liked it a lot, of course had no reference to her appearance on BBC.
