Vet's debut book proves to be a big hit

by Tom Martin (August 2022)

A DEBUT book published by a Formby vet has been named as one of the Financial Times’ Best Summer Books of 2022.

Sean Wensley has penned ‘Through a Vet’s Eye’, which has been described as “a vet’s eye-opening polemic about our relationship with animals; how we treat them, how we get it wrong and what we can do to fix it.”

The book has been a big hit since it was released earlier this year and has been recognised in the national press.

Sean said: “The book opens at Liverpool University's Victoria building, where I studied to be a vet. I use nature writing to describe and celebrate the North West’s amazing wildlife spectacles, such as the thousands-strong roosts of pink-footed geese at the Alt Estuary and Martin Mere, the starling murmuration at the Runcorn bridge, endangered natterjack toads in Ainsdale and Formby's red squirrels.  

“I’m proud that people are reading about our treasured local natural heritage, while learning about animal welfare and the natural world.” 

Sean will be at WH Smith in Southport on Saturday, August 20, from 9am to sign copies of the book.
