The stories in this book are first-hand experiences of Mike Hardwich, both a vet and a farmer, who originally practised in
Pietermaritzburg, but now practises at The Heritage Vet in Hillcrest, KwaZulu-Natal.
Amongst other stories Mike tells of the birth of the first orang-utan in Africa, a C section on a marmoset, complications with farm animals, problems with elephants, the anaesthesia of a fruit bat, racehorses and their crooked owners, obstacles resulting from African superstition, and introduces us to his family’s pet menagerie.
The title of the book is taken from a commission Mike received to get a lion and a lamb to lie down together to promote peace at a time of heightened racial tension in South Africa, in 1992. The advert went on to win the award for ‘Best Advertisement for Peace’, world-wide, at Cannes.
In places this book is laugh-out-loud funny, and in others incredibly sad – it is suitable for all ages, for all animal lovers, and is a must read for all aspirant vets.
