Veterinarian Story-Teller

Jeff Wells (’88)
Jeff Wells says he would have been voted the last person in his high school class to write a book. Wells not only wrote a book – he wrote three about his experiences as a small and large animal veterinarian. “The stories are real life – my life,” he said. “It wasn’t hard to write down, the hard part was thinking who I was writing to.” Two of his books, “All My Patients Have Tales” and “All My Patients Kick and Bite,” contain a series of charming, funny and engaging stories from his Colorado practice. Everything from treating porcupine-quill covered terriers to running for his life and vaulting over a fence while treating a calf. “I had 20 years of practice, so I had a few stories to tell,” Wells says.
