Conversations with Animals, From Farm Girl to Pioneering Veterinarian, the Dr. Ava Frick Story (Paperback)
Born in rural Missouri on the 4th of July, Ava Frick knew at age three that she wanted to be an "animal doctor" when she grew up. That precocious little girl's early years are traced in this inspiring biography that includes not only biological timeline events but also anecdotal stories (in her own words) about specific animals she treated and how they affected her personal outlook and physical condition. She never rested until she earned her degree, despite a slurry of setbacks involving animals and her father during her childhood and having to work while going to school.
A renowned and admired, sought-after innovator and influencer, Dr. Frick continues to venture well outside the box and beyond the confines of contemporary veterinary medicine.
