Join novice vet, Paul Mitchell, in a further six months of hilarious escapades he experiences while working at Prospect House Veterinary Hospital. He's confronted by a ravenous pig while sunbathing naked in a cornfield. He locks jaws with a caiman with scale rot and battles with Doug, a vicious miniature donkey that's always sinking his teeth into him. It ends with a Christmas pet blessing which erupts into pandemonium as frightened pets and owners scatter through the pews. Throughout his adventures, Paul is loyally supported by the team at the hospital - in particular Beryl, the elderly one-eyed receptionist, and, Lucy the junior nurse - together with whom he shares this merry-go-round of mayhem. It's a gripping, fast page-turner that's guaranteed to keep animal lovers entranced.

    Pets Aplenty by Malcolm D Welshman is an absolutely wonderful account of the life of a novice vet. It is the third book in the Pets In A Pickle series but can be read as a stand-alone.
    This was a delightfully entertaining book that literally had me laughing out loud. I made my way through the book snorting and sniggering throughout at the antics of the animals!
    The action all sprang to life under the masterful pen of Malcolm Welshman. I adored the droll inner voice when dealing with a badger, and the Jack Russell with the bad case of wind was absolutely hilarious! The serious young boy rehearsing for the nativity play also appealed to my sense of humour.
    The whole book was an assault on my senses as I ‘walked’ through fields, farmyards and vets’ practices being completely entertained.
    Pets Aplenty is a really fun read that I just could not put down. I have every intention of hunting out and reading the other books in this series.
