The star of a television programme about his life as a Yorkshire vet, Julian Norton works at the relocated practice in Thirsk made famous by James Herriot in his ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL books. From his childhood love of animals, through his training and first steps in the profession and the pressures and challenges faced by vets (such as BSE in the 1990s and foot-and-mouth in 2001), and dealing with unexpected exotic pets - and excitable humans too - Julian has seen all sides of the veterinary world. Just as happy calving a cow, treating a dehydrated kitten or tending to a horse trapped in barbed wire, Julian's tales bring to life the world of the working vet and the highs and lows he and his colleagues face on a daily basis.

'A delightful read' RADIO TIMES 'Heartwarming tales' DAILY MAIL A celebration of the different creatures - great and small - that this Yorkshire vet has come to know and love. Yorkshire Vet Julian Norton has spent his days as a mixed practice vet treating animals across the bucolic Yorkshire Dales. Julian's voice and humour - well known from his titular role in Channel 5's long-running series The Yorkshire Vet - leap out from every page as stories of drama and excitement unfold. Whether treating dogs, cows or sheep, Julian has come to recognise and appreciate the very particular ways in which healthy and happy animals express their well-being and contentment. Lambs will skip and gambol, cows will ruminate placidly, and the gentle sounds and soft curious facial expression of alpacas or llamas are enough to lift the spirits and warm the coldest of hearts. Here in All Creatures, Julian tells the stories of each of the eight species he has the good fortune to care for every day. He shares the heart-warming and life-affirming characteristics of animal happiness and once again reminds us of the power these creatures have to bring joy to us all.

Warm and heartfelt stories and amusing anecdotes from the life of a vet in God's Own County. Julian Norton has been a vet for over twenty years, and in that time he has treated animals of every kind - snakes and lizards, fish and fowl, sheep, goats, alpacas, cows, horses, swans . you name it, Julian has seen it and, most likely, made it better! In A Yorkshire Vet Through the Seasons, Julian recounts more inspirational tales from his life, the animals he has treated and the people he has met, as well as taking us through the seasons, showing the challenges and surprises that occur at the most unlikely times. His voice, well known from the television series A Yorkshire Vet on Channel 5, comes over loud and clear in his writing, and the compassion and professionalism he is known for on the TV shines brightly through these pages. Whether he's tending to a domestic pet at his practice in Thirsk or called out to an injured swan in the middle of a cold Yorkshire night, the animals always come first and Julian's passion and commitment are always to the fore. Full of drama, small triumphs, sadness and happiness, this book is an inspiration for anyone who loves animals as well as those who dream of becoming a vet.
