My name is Carrie Griffith. I’m a freelance writer with a love of all critters great and small. I am a published author in the Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care, several wildlife papers, articles, and books. I also self-published a collection of veterinary stories called So How Was Your Day, Doc?
In addition to writing, I’m an active veterinarian. I earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine thirty years ago. I am experienced in general practice, behavior, equine medicine, and exotics. I have spent the last twenty-four years practicing small animal emergency medicine.
I am a member of several professional veterinary organizations and The Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. I support numerous wildlife/environmental groups through my efforts in research, habitat management, and wildlife rehabilitation.
When I’m not caring for animals or writing, I enjoy reading, photography, horseback riding, volunteering for the Cuyahoga County Metroparks, and spending time with my family, friends, and my furry kids.

At turns hilarious and touching, this delightful book is a great read! Dr. Griffith is America's James Herriot. Don't miss this charming collection of heart warming stories.
So How Was Your Day Doc? by Dr. Carrie A. Griffith is a must-read for anyone who loves animals. The book is a series of short vignettes by different veterinarians that are as much about the owners as their pets. Funny, sad, and heartwarming, the book is filled with evocative descriptions of veterinary practice. From Tootsie, the mischievous Lhasa Apso, to the owner who asked if her dog could have a "distemperment" shot because she was mean, you will enjoy the characters you meet in this book!
