Best-selling author Nick Trout is back with another touching and heartfelt story from the front lines of veterinary medicine.a tale of two dogs who forever changed the way he thought about life, death, fate and love. Helen is a 10-year-old cocker spaniel found neglected and abandoned in a restaurant parking lot one rainy night. Despite her mangy condition and terrible smell, Ben and Eileen fall in love with the pitiful creature and decide to take her in. But just as Helen is rescued from a sad life on the streets and enveloped in a loving home with all the creature comforts an old dog could ask for, a tumor is discovered and she's given a devastating prognosis. All Ben and Eileen want is for Helen to beat the odds and survive for one more summer so that she can have one chance to swim in the ocean on the family's annual trip to Prince Edward Island. In short, they want a miracle. Meanwhile, 14-month-old Min Pin, Cleo, is suffering from chronic leg fractures which is devastating for her poor owner, Sandi. While Cleo is visiting Sandi's daughter, Sonja, in Bermuda, a third fracture happens. Distraught that the injury happened on her watch, Sonja makes a plan to fly Cleo to Boston to get the specialist care she needs before Sandi even finds out. Enter Dr. Trout who presides over what should be a fairly routine surgery...until the unthinkable happens. Love is the Best Medicine immerses readers in the true life drama of beloved pets whose lives hang in the balance. Every page underscores the profound bond we have with the animals in our lives and the incredible responsibility Nick carries as their healer. Certainly Dr. Trout has an impressive array of fancy equipment, training and skills at his disposable, but his most important tool (as he powerfully illustrates here) is a fundamental belief in the power of hope, humility, and grace.
