Jonathan Cranston – Dorchester Literary Festival

Dorchester

October 21, 2018

12pm

Jonathan Cranson is no ordinary vet. In addition to his day job in the Oxfordshire countryside, treating cows, dogs, pigs and cats, he’s also worked with an astonishing range of species around the world, including crocodiles, rhinos and pandas. In this charming collection he introduces us to some of his favourite patients, ranging from beloved family pets through to magnificent creatures of the wild.

Whether microchipping armadillos, anaesthetising giraffes or advising the makers of the Jurassic World series on exactly how to operate on a velociraptor, Jonathan’s love for his work and the entire animal kingdom is infectious and the stories in The Travelling Vet will delight and enthral every animal lover.
