Lucky Dog: How Being a Veterinarian Saved My Life by Sarah Boston – Book Review

Maybe when you’re ill with pneumonia (probably not COVID-19, just a really poorly timed bout of pneumonia) and have been in hospital, reading a book about a vet who works with animals with cancer who is writing about her own experience of cancer wouldn’t necessarily be the best choice. Yet, it also seemed like the perfect book for this time.

Sarah Boston is Canadian and compares her experience in the Canadian system to what her animals go through, and finds it quite lacking. It is certainly a heartbreaking book, especially as stories about animals with cancer don’t always have happy endings. But it’s also very positive and heartwarming.
