Currently starring in CBS's hit series Dr Chris: Pet Vet in the US and delighting audiences in Australia as the host of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, Chris Brown is a man of many talents but one thing will always stay constant in his life; his love of animals. For this son of a country vet, animals have been a part of Dr Chris Brown's life for as long as he can remember - so it's not surprising that he has followed in his father's veterinary footsteps. But Chris's life has one twist his dad never had to deal with ... a TV camera crew following him around to capture the day-to-day life of an urban vet. Tales from a Bondi Vet is based on the hit Australian television show Bondi Vet, which has become enormously popular around the world and made Dr Chris Australia's best loved vet. It tells his story along with the funny, strange and sometimes heartbreaking tales of his patients and their owners. From the moment a trembling Rottweiler called Zenna is brought into his clinic we follow the progress of Chris's many patients as he treats anything from poisoning, snake bite, near-drowning and trauma to cosmetic surgery, and love gone wrong. On call twenty-four hours a day, anything can happen ... and often does

“For all animal lovers ... Few books ... approach the combination of fine writing, radical honesty, and endless optimism found [in these] veterinary tales.” (Booklist, starred review) With insight and humor, Dr. Philipp Schott shares tales from the unlikely path he took into his career as a veterinarian and anecdotes from his successful small-animal clinic. Dr. Schott brings to his writing the benefit of many years of expertise. Wisdom he imparts on readers includes the best way to give your cat a pill, how to prevent your very handy dog from opening a fridge, and how to handle your fish when it has half-swallowed another. Through these and other experiences, Dr. Schott also learned that veterinary medicine is as much, if not more, about the people as it is the animals. And he will have you laughing and crying as you embark on this journey of discovery with him. “Filled with heartwarming stories any animal lover will enjoy. It’s informative and entertaining, much like our pets themselves!” ― eresa Rhyne, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Dog Lived (and So Will I) “Who amongst us animal lovers hasn’t fantasized being a vet? Well, read Philipp Schott’s highly entertaining and informative book and learn exactly what you’d be in for―all the poignancy, hilarity, and plain hard work. You may decide to keep your day job, but you’ll be a much better animal companion for having picked up the many insider tips Schott imparts.” ―Barbara Gowdy, award-winning author of The White Bone and Helpless
