savelives than she s been responsible for killing But still, there s a lot of blood guts, and a lot of facing the reality of the economics of the choices, and a fair bit of advocacy for spay neuter but not so much for other facets of animal welfare for example, don t surprise your toddler with a bunny in her Easter basket, eat less meat, etcAnyway, this is a smooth and fascinating read, even for

across as callous, unfeeling, and cold Someone who really shouldn t be a vet given how ambiguous she is to animal suffering The part that really bothered me was when she boasted of killing her 18 year old cat and cut off it s head to send for rabies testing, all because it was unvaccinated and it bit her mother Ever heard of So awful I couldn t even finish reading it It actually started off quite
