From the Inside Flap
A pioneering revolutionary prescription
for the health and long life of your pets
For two decades, Dr. Martin Goldstein--America's most successful, renowned holistic veterinarian--has healed and helped his animal patients with the same natural therapies that benefit humans. The results have been so astounding that today critically sick pets are brought to him from across the country for a new chance at life and health.
In this compelling, very accessible book, Dr. Goldstein explains exactly what holistic medicine is and how it works. By treating the root of a health problem instead of its symptoms, you too can help your animal to regain and maintain its own health, as nature intended. Dr. Goldstein also shares many remarkable true stories of supposedly terminally ill animals who have recovered to full wellness. Inside you'll discover
- Why our animals get sick, even when we strive to give them the best of care
- An exhaustive A to Z guide of pet ailments--and the best course of action
- Why vaccines can do more harm than good
- The link between diet and disease--and how the right diet can not only prevent disease but reverse it
- How acupuncture, homeopathy, chiropractic, and other alternative options work--safely and painlessly--to restore true health
- Specific guidance for the use of herbs, supplements, and natural remedies
- The good news (and the bad) about cancer in animals--including extraordinary new treatments and potential cures
- Coping with the inevitable death of your pet--both physically and psychologically
And much, much more
PLUS--the ultimate resource for holistic pet care: an extensive guide to holistic product manufacturersand stores, books, newsletters, Web sites, veterinarians, and associations!

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!
Dr Goldstein really loves animals and understands them. There is so much in this book about keeping your dog well and saving their lives. I lost my sweet sweet girl 5 years ago to seizures only a few days after her annual check up and routine vaccinations. I miss her every day.........
Doctors who talk about the risk of vaccines risk their lives, and their livelihood, d/t the money and power of the lettered societies/government/big pharma. I am changing vets after reading this book.
I can not recommend this book highly enough. Excellent even if you don't have a pet, as much of the information applies to all animals including humans.
Dr Goldstein praises L Ron Hubbard (he is a member of WISE, thus I presume he is a Scientologist) and Hubbard was a seller of snake oil, a complete fraudster, a total BS artist to be blunt.
I fear some of Hubbard's "magical thinking" rubbed off on Dr Goldstein as he told his stories to his ghost writer from Vanity Fair.
At the very least, published in 1999, this book is dated.
I doubt there is a single holistic vet in 2014 that treats respiratory issues with Ma Huang (Ephedra) today, but in 1999 it was "miracle herb" and Dr Goldstein praises it in this book.
I personally read this book and threw it away.
I will stick with Dr Pitcairn when it come to advice on treating my pet holistically.
