Never Turn Your Back on an Angus Cow Dr. Jan Pol & David Fisher Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
The star of The Incredible Dr. Pol shares his amusing, and often poignant, tales from his four decades as a vet in rural Michigan.
Dr. Jan Pol is not your typical veterinarian. Born and raised the Netherlands on a dairy farm, he is the star of Nat Geo Wild’s hit show The Incredible Dr. Pol and has been treating animals in rural Michigan since the 1970s. Dr. Pol’s more than 20,000 patients have ranged from white mice to 2600-pound horses and everything in between.
From the time he was twelve years old and helped deliver a litter of piglets on his family’s farm to the incredible moments captured on his hit TV show, Dr. Pol has amassed a wealth of stories of what it’s like caring for this menagerie of animals. He shares his own story of growing up surrounded by animals, training to be a vet in the Netherlands, and moving to Michigan to open his first practice in a pre fab house. He has established himself as an empathetic yet no-nonsense vet who isn’t afraid to make the difficult decisions in order to do what’s best for his patients—and their hard-working owners. A sick pet can bring heartache, but a sick cow or horse could threaten the very livelihood of a farmer whose modest profits are dependent on healthy livestock.
Reminiscent of the classic books of James Herriot, Never Turn Your Back on an Angus Cow is a charming, fascinating, and funny memoir that will delight animal lovers everywhere.

User reviews about this book
I was sad when I got to the last page! I love the humor, heart and dedication Dr. Pol has for his family, friends, and the animals he treats. If you love Dr. James Herriot, you'll adore this book.

I like the show, but I LOVE the book! Dr. Pol shares his insight and wisdom reaped from working 40 years as a large animal veterinarian. He shares personal and professional stories sprinkled with his quirky sense of humor and immense love for the animals he cares for.
Never turn your back on an Angus Cow
Love the show, love the book, love Dr. Pol💗
Thanks to Dr. Pol and David Fisher for an enjoyable read! The book is written in such a way that you can almost hear Dr. Pol speaking to you, with his optimism and wisdom in the way he treats animals and lives his life. I am glad Charles got this all started and I hope we get to follow more adventures for years to come.
If you are like me, and all you have ever thought about, is becoming a vet. This books is 100% for you! There is so much insight into what it is like day in and day out being a vet. It is a relief to see that there are still veterinarians out there who do it because of the animals. He sticks with what he knows, his old school techniques. Why fix something that isn't broken.
Dr. Pol has become one of my biggest inspirations into finishing my undergraduate studies so I can apply for vet school. With the hopes that one day I will be able to intern with him and his staff.
