<h3> </h3> <h3>Vet Emma Milne, Patron Of Animal Protection Trust Publishes New Book On The Adventures Of A Vet In Practice -'Tales From The Tail End'</h3> <img src="tales_from_the_tail_end_200x300.jpg" alt="Tales from the tail end" width="200" height="307" align="right"> <p>Renowned vet, Emma Milne of television's Vets in Practice series, has written an amusing account of her encounters with pets and owners since she started her first job in practice in 1996 as a qualified vet. 'Tales from the Tail End' is an enchanting and amusing account of the ups and downs of veterinary life, with some delightful anecdotes about her animal and human clients. The paperback 'Tales from the Tail End' published by Summersdale, will be available to purchase in March 2012 from most leading book stores. An absolute must-read for all animal lovers!</p><p><em> Misty was ecstatic to see her owner but to the nurse's surprise her owner just stood there and said, 'What have you done with my dog's head?' <br>'I'm sorry,' replied the nurse, 'what do you mean? She's just been in for spaying.' '<br>That isn't my dog's head. The rest of it is my dog but you've put a differenthead on it.'</em></p><p>On a crisp October morning in 1996, Emma Milne started her first job as a newly qualified vet, a career captured on camera for eleven series of television's Vets in Practice. Now she tells the full story. We discover the numerous things that can get stuck in an animal's stomach, how to stop a cow exploding, and - the biggest truth of all - that animals are easy to deal with in comparison to their owners. They say that truth is stranger than fiction, and these Tales from the Tail End turn out to be stranger - and funnier - than you could ever have imagined...</p><!-- <h3>Lost your pet?</h3> <p>We may have found them.
