William H. Green, D.V.M., a graduate of Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, who established and operated a veterinary hospital for 27 years and worked at Louisiana Tech University, receiving numerous teaching and service awards as a professor, administrator, and adviser to students seeking admissions to veterinary school, has completed his new book, “Doc, Were You Sleeping?”
The book is a fascinating and irreverent compilation of various situations the author encountered while operating a veterinary hospital, and the many people and animals that touched his life along the way.
“Each day (and night) brings surprises into a rural veterinarian’s life, especially when he is a solo practitioner taking all calls, including emergencies while treating a myriad of animals and dealing with unique animal owners and characters,” writes Dr. Green. “(I have) allowed readers of this book to get a glimpse of rural veterinary medicine while enjoying humorous and heartwarming stories. The stories in this book are sometimes unbelievable but definitely true. Days and nights were sometimes very long, and the work was frequently difficult. However, (I share my) feelings about how much (I) loved veterinary medicine and the rewards (I) received. (I am) now retired and enjoying more rest and sleep at a much slower pace without that dreaded phone call that began with ‘Doc, were you sleeping?’”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, William H. Green, D.V.M.’s new book is a wonderful combination of wit and wisdom that explores the humanity in veterinary medicine, and how, despite its long hours, Dr. Green received just as much as he put into his work.
Readers can purchase “Doc, Were You Sleeping?” directly from the author, at an upcoming book signing event, at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
