Michael Fox is a veterinarian best known for his syndicated "Animal Doctor" column. Born in England, the former vice president of The Humane Society of the United States and the author of more than 40 adult and children's books on animal care, animal behavior and bioethics, is a renowned advocate of animal rights and a sharp and eloquent critic of the biotechnology industry. As a professor, bioethicist and veterinarian, Dr. Fox has spearheaded the movement to foster the ethical treatment of animals and the environment since 1967.
His new book presents a vision of a world where the healing of animals, care for the earth, and a revolution of our food and health care systems all work together to create One Health, driven by an integrative and holistic approach.
