Description
As profiled in the "New York Times Magazine..." Based on the author's twenty-five years of experience as a veterinarian and veterinary behaviorist, "The Soul of All Living Creatures "delves into the inner lives of animals - from whales, wolves, and leopards to mice, dogs, and cats - and explores the relationships we forge with them. As an emergency room clinician four years out of veterinary school, Dr. Vint Virga had a life-changing experience: he witnessed the power of simple human contact and compassion to affect the recovery of a dog struggling to survive after being hit by a car. Observing firsthand the remarkably strong connection between humans and animals inspired him to explore the world from the viewpoint of animals and taught him to respect the kinship that connects us. With "The Soul of All Living Creatures," Virga draws from his decades in veterinary practice to reveal how, by striving to perceive the world as animals do, we can enrich our own appreciation of life, enhance our character, nurture our relationships, improve our communication with others, reorder our values, and deepen our grasp of spirituality. Virga discerningly illuminates basic traits shared by both humans and animals and makes animal behavior meaningful, relevant, and easy to understand. Insightful and eloquent, "The Soul of All Living Creatures" offers an intimate journey into the lives of our fellow creatures and a thought-provoking promise of what we can learn from spending time with them.
