LAMESA, Texas, July 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- There is one doctor in America who still makes house calls – but his patients don't speak English.
The doctor in this case treats horses, goats, cows, pigs, snakes, dogs, cats, skunks, geese, ostriches, chickens, reindeer, monkeys and any other animal that comes his way in the small, dusty farming and ranching community of Lamesa, Texas. Dr. Bo Brock, DVM, owns a thriving multispecies veterinary clinic in a town that holds 9,207 humans. He shares his unique perspective on life through a witty, sometimes teary lens in his newly-released debut book, Crowded in the Middle of Nowhere (Greenleaf Book Group, ISBN: 978-1-62634-264-4).
Dr. Brock has treated tens of thousands of animals for over 25,000 people who came from 750 different zip codes. He may indeed be in the middle of nowhere, but his waiting room is crowded. And it's worth the wait.
He shares wisdom, insights, and just plain-old funny stories for animal lovers, rural Americans, and anyone looking to see the lighter side of life. Dr. Brock describes his book as "the story of being a veterinarian on the edge of the earth and loving it."
Readers will howl through the funny parts and weep through the touching pages. His unique perspective and tales of doctoring beloved pets and cantankerous owners will make you smile, laugh, cry and evoke every emotion under the sun.
The book is as much about people as it is about animals. "All we hear about in the news is the bad stuff," says Dr. Brock. "I want to give Americans something to smile about with my book." In some ways, he doctors up people as he heals and looks after their animals.
Dr. Brock's passion is equine medicine and he is well known across four states for doctoring everything from expensive race horses to every day ranch horses and every kind of horse in between, performing approximately 1,000 equine surgeries per year.
His writings take a walk through life and brings you along with him.
Though Dr. Brock's easy-to-read, award-winning book holds the values of rural America close to heart, it is filled with poignant stories that appeal to everyone, especially animal lovers. His stories run the gamut of emotions from lump-in-your-throat tears to laugh-out-loud screams. It's a wholesome book with a positive outlook on life, written by a veterinarian of 25 years who has witnessed life, death and everything in between.
