Praise for Book 1:
“I found this book when I needed it most.
As a recently graduated veterinarian, I’d already
started learning some of the lessons Dr. K seeks
to impart, except I was doing it the hard way.
Dr. K combines science, humor, and grace
in deeply relatable ways to offer solutions and
advice for the difficulties many of us will encounter
as we begin this challenging, but rewarding, career.”
– Casey Drummond, DVM
Gives the reader an insider’s perspective on how it feels to be a veterinary student,
and how to master each of the three major intervals of veterinary school.
Praise for Book 2:
“This should be required reading for every future veterinarian
before they even apply to veterinary school.”
– Lauren Beaird, DVM
The information in this book can help shield you from the emotional wounds new graduate veterinarians often inflict on themselves simply because they don’t know that the deficiencies they identify in themselves are the same deficiencies every new doctor struggles to overcome. ( Click here to read an excerpt from Book 3 that discusses one particular deficiency. ) Additionally, shortcuts are provided for overcoming some of the most common new doctor deficiencies in the section entitled, “16 Things I Learned the Hard Way.”
Praise for Book 3:
“This book gives readers an accurate idea of what
it feels like to be a new graduate and the challenges
new graduates face, and it makes you realize the anxieties
you feel as a new veterinarian are quite normal. “
– Chandra Harrigan, DVM
