The bestselling first volume of Mud, Sweat and Tears tells the story of Bud Ings’ adventures as a rural veterinarian in the 1950s. Volume II takes us into the 1960s. Whether he was helping to deliver a calf, giving shots of penicillin to a pig, or putting down a beloved horse, Ings treated each animal—and farmer—with dignity and respect. Ings’ memoirs are rich, often humorous accounts of the life of a rural veterinarian.
