Reviews

“An entertaining, simple book, worthwhile for any library. This volume fits perfectly with Schott’s two previous ‘The Accidental Veterinarian’ books.” — Library Journal
“While some pieces offer LOLs and some are sad, it’s all just plain entertaining, with clients like bush dogs Doobie and Gator, a gorgeous snow leopard due for an ultrasound, and yellow lab Marv Hampton. Animal owners will find lots of welcome — and readily dispersed — factoids.” — Booklist
“Well-written, entertaining and informative for everyone who loves animals.” — The Winnipeg Free Press
“Philipp Schott is not James Herriot. This book isn’t about creatures great and small in pre-war Yorkshire — but the pets that come to this Winnipeg clinic are just as entertaining.” — Chesil Magazine
“When all is said and done, short stories or collections of essays, are the best, and Dr. Schott’s are particularly congenial. Each is engaging; a few are tear-jerkers, and while some are persuasive or informational, most are humorous … Highly recommended.” — Seattle Book Mama blog
“It’s funny, it’s touching, it’s sad, and heartwarming all at the same time.” — Dear Author blog
“What’s cuter than a fluffy baby animal? Not much, that’s a fact, but the stories inside The Battle Cry of the Siamese Kitten come pretty close.” — Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan
“These are super-short anecdotes that are super-long on endearment, with subtle advice hidden in the tales, a few LOLs thrown in for good measure, and an occasional tear-wipe. Animal lovers ages 13-to-adult will want to curl up with “The Battle Cry of the Siamese Kitten.” Don’t wait to get your claws on it, ” — The Daily News
“Whatever your interest in the animal world, this book will have you engaged completely. From the first story to the last, Dr. Philipp Schott keeps my interest, answers my questions and delights me page after page. My heart was warmed many times over. Pick up a copy of The Battle Cry of the Siamese Kitten by Philipp Schott, DVM and enter his world, from his end of the stethoscope. He is a bright light to us humans, and is clearly devoted to his animal universe, ” — The Miramichi Reader
