A powerful, heart-warming and inspiring memoir from the UK's most famous and beloved vet, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick - star of the Channel 4 series The Supervet.

Growing up on the family farm in Ballyfin, Ireland, Noel's childhood was spent tending to the cattle and sheep, the hay and silage, the tractors and land, his beloved sheepdog Pirate providing solace from the bullies that plagued him at school. It was this bond with Pirate, and a fateful night spent desperately trying to save a newborn lamb, that inspired Noel to enter the world of veterinary science - and set him on the path to becoming The Supervet. Now, in this long-awaited memoir, Noel recounts this often-surprising journey that sees him leaving behind a farm animal practice in rural Ireland to set up Fitzpatrick Referrals in Surrey, one of the most advanced small animal specialist centres in the world. We meet the animals that paved the way, from calving cows and corralling bullocks to talkative parrots and bionic cats and dogs. Noel has listened to the many lessons that the animals in his care have taught him, and especially the times he has shared with his beloved Keira, the scruffy Border Terrier who has been by Noel's side as he's dealt with the unbelievable highs and crushing lows of his extraordinary career. As heart-warming and life-affirming as the TV show with which he made his name, Listening to the Animals is a story of love, hope and compassion, and about rejoicing in the bond between humans and animals that makes us the very best we can be.

    I love watching the supervet so much and couldn't wait to read this book. I have never laughed and cried so much at the same time the book is simply brilliant and tells the story of Noel from childhood through to adulthood and how he had to work to become a vet but also shows how he had a hard life with the bullies but how determined he was to get what he wanted. He's an amazing guy and his book is simply brilliant from the first page and lovely to hear of his early life and what he has achieved I love watching the supervet so much and couldn't wait to read this book.

James Herriot's books were among the first memoirs I read many years ago. Since then I've read a few more of this type of book, and recently 3 on the trot. Noel Fitzpatrick's book was wonderful and certainly lived up to all expectations. He relates his family story, and circumstances which made him desire to become a vet. The book starts with his childhood in Ireland. At the age of 10, he's already dealing with lambing. He lives on a farm, it's the norm. Farming was in the family-his father, his father's father, etc. Even at this early age, he's an old hand at this sort of thing. He's been dealing with birthing since about two years previous. Oh my, already my emotions were involved. The first chapter left me breathless. This was so well written. Lovely anecdotes from his early life, told with warmth and humour. Some of it is very hard circumstances; farm life, the inevitability of things for the cows and sheep. Filled with both happy memories, and hard times. From those hard beginnings in Ireland, how far he has come. He hadn't been a top of the class student-far from it, things didn't come easy for him. But work, work, work he did. I've only seen Noel Fitzpatrick in brief spats on TV, in between work etc. My mum watches him and has quite a soft spot for him. So I was coming to his book not really knowing much about him. I absolutely loved it! A wonderful read.

    Wonderful book about a wonderful man. From his childhood through to The Supervet we know today, it’s delightfully insightful, beautifully funny in places and emotionally frank. I couldn’t put it down. Thoroughly recommended.
