The Vet at Noah’s Ark: Stories of Survival from an Inner-City Animal Hospital
A moving account of Dr. Doug Mader, a well-known veterinarian’s struggle to safeguard his human staff and animal patients amid the perilous realities of inner-city life and the riots in Los Angeles, as well as a celebration of the remarkable bond between humans and animals, comes from Mader.
A veterinarian’s life is difficult: making difficult decisions about people’s beloved pets, keeping up with advancements in medical care, and, in the case of Dr. Doug Mader, navigating the social unrest in Los Angeles in the early 1990s. He was as likely to be treating a lion as he was a house cat because he was one of California’s few specialists in exotic animals.
The Vet at Noah’s Ark: Stories of Survival from an Inner-City Animal Hospital follows Dr. Mader and his staff for a year at Noah’s Ark Veterinary Hospital, an inner-city LA area veterinary hospital where Dr. Mader treats a variety of exotic animals in addition to dogs and cats. This real-life drama takes place against the backdrop of the Rodney King trial of four police officers and the violent aftermath of their acquittal.
This is a book about survival, both of the staff and the pets that Dr. Mader and his staff try to save every day. They must overcome and rise above the harsh city reality of gangs, drugs, violence, traffic, smog, and deadly riots for their own survival and that of the animals who depend on them.
