It has been 30 years since Noel Fitzpatrick graduated as a veterinary surgeon, and that 22-year-old from Ballyfin, Ireland, is now one of the leading veterinary surgeons in the world. The journey to that point has seen Noel treat thousands of animals - many of whom were thought to be beyond help - animals that have changed his life, and the lives of those around them, for the better.

If the No.1 Sunday Times bestseller Listening to the Animals was about Noel's path to becoming The Supervet, then How Animals Saved My Life is about what it's like to actually be The Supervet. Noel shares the moving and often funny stories of the animals he's treated and the unique 'animal people' he has met along the way. He reflects on the valuable lessons of Integrity, Care, Love and Hope that they have taught him - lessons that have sustained him through the unbelievable highs and crushing lows of a profession where lives are quite literally at stake.

As Noel explores what makes us connect with animals so deeply we meet Peanut, the world's first cat with two front bionic limbs, Murphy, the adorable golden retriever puppy who suffered a terrible accident, and Brody the Terminator dog with a metal endoskeleton - and of course his beloved companions Ricochet the Maine Coon and Keira the scruffy Border Terrier who is always by his side. Honest and deeply personal, this is about how animals have saved Noel's life - and can yours too.
