In Beyond Supervet, leading veterinary surgeon Professor Noel Fitzpatrick shares the moving, heart-warming and often surprising stories of the animals that he has treated in his remarkable career. As he explores how our relationships with animals can bring out the best in each of us, we meet some of the wonderful animals he has tried to help, the families who love them and the deeply personal challenges Noel faced along the way. It is animals like these who have taught Noel the valuable lessons of Love, Hope and Faith – lessons that have sustained him in his life beyond being the Supervet.

This is the remarkable story of one man and the animals he has saved, animals who have – in turn – saved him.

Noel’s first book, Listening to the Animals, was a huge No. 1 Sunday Times and Irish No.1 Bestseller with over 440k copies now sold across all formats. His second memoir How Animals Saved My Life was another massive No. 1 Bestseller in both Ireland and the Sunday Times, with over 260k copies sold across all formats.

With over 700k books sold and two Sunday Times number one bestsellers to his name, Noel Fitzpatrick has proven himself to be a unique storyteller, and his new book Beyond Supervet is no exception. As a nation of animal lovers, Noel’s story is one that will inspire us all as he explores what makes us connect to animals so deeply, and in doing so shows how our relationship with them can help us all to be better versions of ourselves. It’s been an honour to work with Noel on his past two books and I’m thrilled to be continuing our bestselling relationship with this new volume of memoirs.

Professor Noel Fitzpatrick said:

In this book I am going to be more frank and candid that I have ever been before about my own life, my life within the veterinary profession and the challenges I have faced both personally and professionally through the prism of all of the animals that have helped to heal me and can help to heal you too.

Beyond Supervet: How Animals Make Us The Best We Can Be will be published by Trapeze in hardback, ebook and audio on 27th October 2022.
