A veterinarian's fight for his patients and staff lays bare the power of the human-animal bond.


As one of the few exotic animal experts in California during his time running Noah's Ark Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Doug Mader was just as likely to be treating a lion as a house cat. In The Vet at Noah's Ark, his amazing protection of animals-from cats and dogs to emus, skunks, snakes, foxes, monkeys, and a host of other exotic animals--is recounted with all the thrill of an ER medical drama. And not only must Dr. Mader fight to protect the vulnerable animals in his care, but also his human staff navigating the social unrest of Los Angeles in the early 1990s. This beloved, multi-award winning volume from a veterinary hero often praised as a modern day James Herriot is a captivating tribute to our animal friends and the true stories of a doctor who goes above and beyond to protect them.

Dr. Doug Mader is a triple board-certified veterinary specialist and has been a veterinarian for over three decades. He is an internationally recognized speaker, has written three best-selling medical textbooks and numerous book chapters and scientific publications, and has had long-standing pet columns in the Long Beach Press Telegram, Reptiles magazine, and the Key West Citizen. Dr. Mader is the recipient of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Award, the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine Alumni Achievement Award, and the Fred L. Frye Lifetime Achievement Award for Veterinary Medicine, and is a six-time winner of the North American Veterinary Community Speaker of the Year award and a four-time winner of the Western Veterinary Conference Educator of the Year award. He is also a fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine in the UK. Dr. Mader practiced in California for many years, but today lives and works in the Florida Keys.
