They Have Feelings Too is a memorable journey into the world of veterinary practice. As a young man fresh out of the United States Navy, Howard Hansen has a decision to make. What is he going to do with the rest of his life?Howard takes you through the hallowed university halls and into the Cal Davis's Veterinary stables to give you a glimpse of real life veterinary medicine.

During his years of practice, Howard Hansen meets and introduces you to a wide spectrum of four legged, two legged and even a three legged amputee pets. He reminds us that not only the pets, but the owners too come in a
