Don’t They Kick When You do That

Stories of a Prairie Veterinarian

Dr. Gary Hoium, Author

In 1984, new veterinary college graduate Dr. Gary Hoium joined a mixed animal clinic in Weyburn, Saskatchewan. For the next 36 years, he would serve animals (and though he didn’t know it was what he signed up for, their humans) of all shapes and sizes, collecting an endless tally of humorous and heartwarming stories along the way.

Written with Dr. Hoium’s unmistakable wit and sense of fun, Don’t They Kick When You Do That. is a compilation of his real-life adventures, mishaps and rousing successes, sure to entertain and captivate anyone who’s ever had an interest in animals, being a vet, or life on the Canadian Prairies.

From cattle to hogs, cats to dogs, the creatures and men and women who lobe them have wormed their way into Gary Hoium’s heart and his stories.

And, yes, sometimes they do kick when he does that.
