New Animal Book on Veterinary Medicine Features Patients That Don't Play by the Rules

"You Want me to Declaw What?" is a new animal book that takes a humorous look at the field of veterinary medicine. From a rampaging bull to an out-of-control chimpanzee and a goose named Gary Dr. Matt Toia has seen it all, and now he is sharing his experiences in a book of short stories.

(PRWEB) January 6, 2009 -- In his new animal book "You Want Me To Declaw What?" Dr. Toia recounts his 35 years in veterinary medicine, and some of the many peculiar animals and situations that he had encountered "all in a day's work."

You Want Me To Declaw What?

Dr. Toia's warmth, humor, and true respect for the animals he has tended to shines through every page of this delightful book. "You Want Me to Declaw What?" is a treat for both animal lovers and non-animal lovers alike, and proves that the life of a veterinarian is many things, but it is never boring!

A former U.S. Army Special Forces Green Beret turned animal doctor, Dr. Toia utilized many of the skills he learned in the military to treat and save his four legged patients. At times poignant and hilarious, Dr. Toia's animal book "You Want Me To Declaw What?" is one that any reader will delight in.
