Helen is an older cocker spaniel found neglected and abandoned in a restaurant parking lot one rainy night. Despite her mangy condition and terrible smell, Ben and Eileen fall in love with the pitiful creature and decide to take her in. But just as Helen is rescued from a sad life on the streets and enveloped in a loving home, a tumor is discovered and she's given a devastating prognosis. Meanwhile, fourteen-month-old miniature pinscher Cleo keeps breaking one leg after another, which devastates her poor owner, Sandi. While Cleo is visiting Sandi's daughter, Sonja, in Bermuda, she succumbs to yet another fracture. Distraught that the injury happened on her watch, Sonja flies Cleo to Boston to get the specialist care she needs before Sandi even finds out. Enter Dr. Trout, who presides over what should be a fairly routine surgery. What happens next forever links two families, their dogs, and a beloved veterinarian and teaches them all a lesson about grace that resonates to this day. Love is the Best Medicine immerses you in the true-life drama of beloved pets whose lives hang in the balance.

The story is probably better than the reading of it. It just never quite got off the ground to make me want to finish listening to it. My rating is just for the audio book.
