Creatures of the Rock: A Veterinarian’s Adventures in Newfoundland
By Andrew Peacock
When you’re the only vet in an area that’s 130 miles long and has a coast on either side, you never know what each new day will bring. expectant cows, colicky horses, an aggressive lynx, a trapped whale, a moose on the loose, caribou in need of pastures new, a polar bear in a bingo hall . . . the only constants for Andrew Peacock are his faithful dog and his passion for his work.
Andrew Peacock was born in Toronto and grew up in Kapuskasing in northern Ontario. After graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, he moved to Carbonear, Newfoundland, where he practiced farm animal and pet medicine for thirty years.
