Try again, Doc

The collected Doc Rat webcomic strips from June 2007 to December 2007. (DR-0261 – DR-0392)

More antics from the crew working hard to run a family medical practice. Ben treats coughs and colds in the rainy season. A clever use of fleas to cure an alcoholic dog. Jasmine the rabbit keeps her baby bunnies safe. The latest Harry Potter book release craze. The doc starts a daily exercise routine but fails to steer clear of video game addiction. And there are helpful examples of how to decipher Australian language. 

What people say about Doc Rat Collection #3

Well drawn, well written and well worth reading – I prescribe regular doses of Doc Rat.
Phillip Adams AO (Late Night Live, ABC Radio National) 
 
Doc Rat is one of the most engaging web comics I have ever encountered, a true delight for medical professionals and patients alike.  Dr. Jenner presents us daily with endearing characters whose tales are hilarious, poignant, heartwarming, tragic, and often all at the same time.  His storytelling talents are truly masterful, although his liberal use of puns has been known to lean precariously toward a violation of his Hippocratic Oath.

It would be wise to attach a note warning people with hernias that reading these books could be hazardous.

I’ve Got Two Things, Doc

The collected Doc Rat webcomic strips from December 2006 to June 2006. (DR-0133 – DR-0260)

The second book in the series, with a further miscellany of the strange things that can happen in a family doctor’s practice. Receptionist Gizelle experiments with New Age music in the waiting room. A pig has hair removal treatment from a giant spider. There’s a song and dance number. And we meet the Jasmine and Flopsy, the unlikely married couple, in a short story that culminates in a mad dash to hospital.

What people say about Doc Rat Collection #2

To a doctor, sometimes patients, lab assistants and colleagues must seem like so many mad animals.  Jenner just takes that resemblance to its logical extreme. His bemused and baffled characters are more like Funny People with their masks stripped off.   Welcome to HIS world!
Donna Barr (The Desert Peach, Stinz)
 
I have examined the patient, having checked all vital signs: Humour, Character, Cartooning style and execution. My conclusion is that Doc Rat is healthy and well and can expect to be with us for some time to come.
Gary Clark (Swamp)
 
The sort of comedy that should be in everyone’s medicine cabinet.

I’m Real Crook, Doc

The collected Doc Rat webcomic strips from June 2006 to December 2006. (DR-0001 – DR-0132)

This is where it all begins. We’re introduced to the family doctor Ben Rat and his practice staff: the gentle, caring nurse Mary Scamper and the emotionally labile receptionist Gizelle Thomson. Jarrad the scared little numbat boy has to have his injections. Phil Krubnuckle the local pharmacist helps Ben when he falls sick with a cold. Wilbur Fuzz plays the role of perpetual joker. Rufus the Animapharm rep presents his wares with the new wonder drug Zappo. And as a finale, there are the increasingly bizarre Twelve Days of Christmas.

What people say about Doc Rat Collection #1

Doc Rat is one of the most delightful comic strips on the web, featuring an engaging cast of characters in a friendly physicians office.  The unique challenge these health care professionals face in this all-animal universe, of course, is the responsibility of dealing with hundreds of different kinds of patients. Human doctors have it so much easier working with just a single species!  The laughter is universally covered, and comes in regular doses.
Bill Holbrook  (Kevin and Kell, On The Fastrack, Safe Havens)
 
Jenner’s Doc Rat is a combination of clever humour and unique, professional artwork. I’ve found myself spontaneously guffawing over dozens of Doc Rat strips every week.
