The mysteries of humans’ relationships with nonhuman beings are nowhere more evident than in contemporary veterinary practice. This fieldwork-based article examines personal experience narratives about memorable animal patients, which veterinary professionals share among themselves. These stories narrate the agency of animals who actively shape their relationships with medical caregivers and play a part in their medical outcome. Illustrating the power of mutually created connections across species boundaries, narratives not only critique human–animal relationships but can change them.
