Dr. Marty is a vet that truly cares about his patients...more than his pocketbook.
This book discusses diets and natural health maintenance for our pets. Unfortunately modern "healthcare" and "diets" are litterally killing our beloved pets. In 2017 (almost 20 years after this book was written) the cancer rate among dogs is one out of every 1.61! How depressing is that??!!
Through this well-written book one learns about vaccinations, pet foods (both commercial and species-appropriate) and natural supplements.
I was fortunate to meet Dr. Marty in person at Smith Ridge Veterinary in South Salem, New York. While my dogs have been on a raw homemade diet for 8.5 years, one of my dogs (a rescue) was having horrible skin issues. Most vets prescribed medications to alleviate SYMPTOMS and suppress my dog's immune system.
Dr. Marty, on the other hand, focused on identifying the UNDERLYING CAUSE of my dog's skin condition. After evaluating his bloodwork he prescribed a regimen of natural supplements that support specific organ function. In only three weeks my dog is doing great - his skin has cleared up; he's no longer scratching; eyes are bright and clear; and he's very energetic.
Dr. Marty truly loves animals and wants them to live a long, happy healthy life.
I encourage anyone who loves their furry family members to read this book and consider implementing Dr. Marty's recommendations. Doing so will improve your pet's quality of life and save you heartache (and money!) in the long run.
On a final note, this book is easy and fast to read. Dr. Marty seamlessly intersperses valuable information along with case studies, keeping the reader interested and turning pages.
My favorite chapter was the second to last one, which discusses the spiritual connection between pets and their owners.
This book makes great gifts for the animal lovers in your life. I gave half a dozen away last month and just ordered a few more for colleagues.
My pups and I are blessed to have access to this incredibly special human being. If you cannot meet Dr. Marty in person this book is the next best thing!
