Lucky Dog is a hilarious and heartwarming memoir by a renowned veterinary oncologist who tells us what we can learn about health care and ourselves from our most beloved pets. What happens when a veterinary surgical oncologist (laymens term, cancer surgery doctor) thinks she has cancer herself? Enter Sarah Boston, a vet who suspects a suspicious growth in her neck is thyroid cancer. From the moment she uses her husband's portable ultrasound machine to investigate her lump hes a vet, too its clear this will not be your typical cancer memoir. She takes us on a hysterical and thought-provoking journey through the human health care system from the perspective of an animal doctor. Weaving funny and poignant stories of dogs she's treated along the way, this is an insightful memoir about what the human medical world can learn from the way we treat our canine counterparts. Lucky Dog teaches us to trust our instincts, be our own advocates, and laugh while were doing it.
