Medicine Show

Dr. Shona Taylor, a specialist in environmental medicine, uses her training and a most unusual menagerie of animal assistants to solve medical mysteries. She has an Abyssinian cat who can detect environmental hazards, a dog whose system can synthesize vaccines, and an alien ottle named Chirwl. On Chirwl’s planet, visiting humans and the local population are both suffering from a mysterious epidemic of rapid aging. Shona has to discover not only a cure, but the source, before the entire colony dies of old age.

It’s the most unusual medical unit in the galaxy–and it makes house calls. A fully equipped starship lab, Taylor’s Ark is run by Dr. Shona Taylor, a specialist in environmental medicine. She has a menagerie of very special assistants, including an Abyssinian cat, a dog, rabbits, mice, and an alien ottle named Chirwl.  Now, this highly trained crew faces the ultimate medical mystery. On Chirwl’s home world, humans and ottles alike are aging at an alarming rate. And if Dr. Taylor doesn’t find a fast cure, the entire colony will die...of old age.
