The national bestselling memoir.


ALL DOGS GO TO KEVIN is a humorous and touching portrait of a veterinarian, her beloved dogs, and the lessons they impart to her along the way.

You can’t always count on people, but you can always count on your dog. No one knows that better than veterinarian Jessica Vogelsang, who with the help of three dogs, is buoyed through adolescence, veterinary school, and the early years of motherhood. Taffy, the fearsome Lhasa; Emmett, an amiable Golden; and Kekoa, the neurotic senior Labrador, are always by her side, offering lessons in empathy and understanding for all the oddballs and misfits who come through the vet clinic doors. Also beside her is Kevin, a human friend who lives with the joie de vivre most people only dream of having. But when tragedy strikes, Jessica is reminded that the animals we love give more than they take.

Dr. Marty Becker, Author of YOUR DOG: AN OWNERS MANUAL

“Jessica Vogelsang is a warm and widely respected veterinarian, and in her funny and often poignant first book, her gifts are on full display. ALL DOGS GO TO KEVIN is a love letter to the canine species written by a true friend to animals.”

Larry Levin, New York Times Bestselling Author of OOGY

“Dogs have a lot to teach us and a lot to tell us about ourselves. Told with subtle, self-effacing humor, ALL DOGS GO TO KEVIN is one woman’s journey of personal growth, as reflected in her personal and professional relationships with people and dogs, to an enriching understanding of the importance of love and nurturing in our lives.”

Julie Klam, New York Times Bestselling Author of YOU HAD ME AT WOOF

“ALL DOGS GO TO KEVIN is a delightful, funny, and heartwarming tale (tail?) of the many dogs that have come through author Jessica Vogelsang’s life. It also has the added bonus that Vogelsang is a vet — so she knows stuff! I laughed and recognized myself and thought of the many, many dog people I will gift this book to. ALL DOGS GO TO KEVIN is a real treat (and not the slimy kind that your dog brings into your bed).”

Kirkus Reviews

“Veterinarian Vogelsang pays tribute to the dogs that have played important roles in her life and professional practice. She writes movingly…A feel-good, bittersweet memoir.”

Publishers Weekly

“In a manner reminiscent of author/veterinarian James Herriot, Vogelsang shares stories of her canine patients and their human families with kindness and compassion…Vogelsang’s experiences as a veterinarian, dog owner, mother, wife, and friend will resonate with readers, encouraging them to join her on a journey caring for others’ pets-and to appreciate the unconditional love dogs shower on their human companions.”
