About A Writer’s Guide to Veterinary Hospitals:
The veterinary field has been gaining popularity, which means more authors want to have veterinarian characters in their stories. However, not all writers understand the ins and outs of this unique field, and a poor representation of this will cause you to lose credibility with your readers. While human medicine has known aspects that most of us can understand, veterinary medicine encompasses all of that, plus the added aspect of unpredictable animals… and their owners!
In this lighthearted guide, the reader experiences firsthand the ups, downs and sideways events that happen daily if not weekly in this field. The author draws on her lifetime career in veterinary medicine to help authors capture the true essence of working in this field, whether their setting is a privately-owned hospital, part of a corporation, or even located inside an animal shelter. Each of these has their own unique culture, goal, and mindset, which will help writers solidify the day-to-day life of their characters. Delving feetfirst into this world will help writers create stronger, truer scenes that even the staunchest veterinary employee will relate to.
Readers interested in behind-the-scenes will gain a deeper understanding of what happens from the time of the first phone call to the appointment end, and writers looking for ways to immerse their readers in the world of veterinary medicine will have step-by-step scenes, terminology, and explanations to help them better portray their story.
From setting to seizures, conflicts to COVID, this guide has it all!

Dorothy Callahan is one of those authors who annoys other authors by refusing to be tied down to one genre. If a tale demands to be told—even if she’s never read a single story like it—she’ll find a way to write the book of her heart. This is the only way to quiet those demanding characters begging to be heard.
She lives in New York with her wonderful husband, a pride of demanding cats, and two sweet dogs, all rescued from shelters (well, not her husband; he didn’t need rescuing). Her love of both animals and writing prompted her to start READ AND RESCUE, an organization where animal-loving authors and readers can find one another. The unique aspect to this group is that each author pledges a portion of proceeds to his/her favorite animal cause.
When Dorothy is not writing, she enjoys shopping for antiques and renovating their pre-Civil War house.
