They Have Feelings Too is a memorable journey into the world of veterinary practice. As a young man fresh out of the United States Navy, Howard Hansen has a decision to make. What is he going to do with the rest of his life? Howard takes you through the hallowed university halls and into the Cal Davis's Veterinary stables to give you a glimpse of real life veterinary medicine. What happens when a staff of veterinary student are unknowingly exposed to rabies? Go into the surgery lab for large animals and follow the doctors as they prepare a highly strung black stallion for orthopedic surgery. Learn about the massive hydraulic operating tables and be in attendance as the chief surgeon operates on the stallion to stabilize a knee fracture. The new graduate with Doctor Of Veterinary Medicine behind his name chooses the specialty of small animal medicine. He finds employment as a staff veterinarian in a busy two man practice in Los Gatos, California. Hansen is exposed to office politics for the first time and encounters the diverse personalities of the boss's domineering wife and the tottering aged father who acts a primary assistant. Howard decides to broaden his experience and moves to a large eight man practice in San Francisco. Diverse personalities abound as do conflicts. Day to day animal maladies are seen and treated. The occasional pet with an odd or truly strange injury as the two headed kitten and the convulsing falcon makes their way through the clinic's front door. Mistakes are made by veterinarians, and sometimes with hilarious results. The final episode of his career was his own one-man private practice. Howard moves his family to San Diego California where he purchases and successfully operates a veterinary hospital for 23 years. During his years of practice, Howard Hansen meets and introduces you to a wide spectrum of four legged, two legged and even a three legged amputee pets. He reminds us that not only the pets, but the owners too come in all sizes and shapes and personalities that run the gambit from normal to scary bikers with their attack dogs. This book exposes the reader to what really happen behind the doors of a veterinary clinic. If you ever wondered what was happening to your pet during treatment and wanted to be taken step by step through orthopedic surgery, learn how dangerous junk yard dogs are handled, and how rattlesnake bitten dogs saved, then this is a must read.
