Lucky Dog is Dr Boston’s best-selling humorous memoir about having thyroid cancer and treating animals with cancer.
LUCKY DOG HAS BEEN PUBLISHED IN CANADA, THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, AND SOUTH KOREA.
What happens when a veterinary surgical oncologist (laymen’s term: cancer surgery doctor) thinks she has cancer herself? Enter Sarah Boston: a vet who suspects a suspicious growth in her neck is thyroid cancer. From the moment she uses her husband’s portable ultrasound machine to investigate her lump — he’s a vet, too — this will not be your typical cancer memoir.
She takes us on a hysterical and thought-provoking journey through the human healthcare system from the perspective of an animal doctor. Weaving funny and poignant stories of dogs she’s treated along the way, this is an insightful memoir about what the human medical world can learn from how we treat our canine counterparts. Lucky Dog teaches us to trust our instincts, be our advocates, and laugh.
