Yorkshire Vet, Julian Norton, is back with a new book of anecdotes from his veterinary work in North Yorkshire.

Ruminations of a Yorkshire Vet continues his ‘Diary’ series of books. His work is varied and, during this period of Julian’s work, most of his days are filled with farm animals: calving cows and replacing prolapses, treating milk fever, and even removing an eye from a bull!

Other cases include: sheep semen; lopsided fish; accident-prone cats; bald guineapigs; a three-legged hedgehog; Perky the pigeon; Elvis the goat; minty gloves; and much, much more.

Julian’s diary covers the Covid-19 pandemic and documents how this affected his veterinary work. He ruminates on life and chews the cud over his unexpected but happy television career.

Written in the charming manner familiar to those who have watched the Channel 5 hit series The Yorkshire Vet, this book is a fun and enjoyable read.

It is beautifully produced and illustrated throughout.

About the Author 

Julian has been working in mixed practice in rural North Yorkshire for the majority of his twenty-seven years as a vet. Much of his career has taken place in the market town of Thirsk, made famous by James Herriot and his books. During this time, he has seen many varied cases, unusual animals great and small, and has made friends with a huge mixture of fascinating farmers and pet owners.

In 2015, Julian joined the hit TV series The Yorkshire Vet, which continues to be a popular Channel 5 programme. He contributes a weekly column to ‘The Country Week’ section of The Yorkshire Post, documenting his weekly veterinary anecdotes.

Julian now helps to run two independent practices: Sandbeck Vets in Wetherby and Thirsk Veterinary Centre, where he works with his wife, Anne, who is also a vet
