Like most of my other audio books, I listened to this one on my commute. Unlike others, I do not recommend listening to ‘Tell Me Where It Hurt’ by Dr. Nick Trout on a shorter commute. I only have to drive 30-40 minutes twice a day and it was hard to stick with this book in such short segments. The author jumped around, probably much like their typical workload.

However, outside of that, I have nothing to say but good things about this book. he talks about a variety of topics and cases and really gets at the heart of the patient, doctor, and owner relationships. It was an interesting read for anyone that loves animals, especially dogs, and wants to get a little perspective from the people with whom we entrust their health.

We have a 14 year old Shih Tzu and 8 year old Sheepdog, so we are spending more and more time at the vet in the last year. We are fortunate that they are in relatively good health, but book helps give nice insights and ease my mind about the things to come. I say this as my mom is about to put down (Thursday) my dog over several years after college. It is a tough position, but the decision can be made peacefully when you take into account many of the things Dr. Trout talks about in this book. It is a good read/listen!
