The Dog Doc – Documentary Film
October 7 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM$15
Benefit for New Milford Animal Welfare Society
THE DOG DOC poses a serious question about whether we are over medicating our pets, our children, and ourselves, while offering an immersive view into a seldom seen world to paint a complete picture of the dedication and rewards of being a veterinarian.
A founding father of integrative veterinary medicine, Dr. Marty Goldstein and his colleagues in South Salem, NY have created a mecca for holistic care, offering hope to scores of previously hopeless animals (and their owners). Combining conventional medical training with cutting edge alternative therapies, Dr. Marty’s deeply empathetic philosophy offers a vital example of how improving overall health rather than merely treating disease is transformative for all living things.
As Goldstein and his staff interact with animals, the stakes are high and it is often touch and go as we watch the owners, some who have traveled great distances, struggle with the reality of whether or not their pets will live to see another day.
Join filmmaker and director Cindy Meehl as well as Dr. Marty Goldstein (author of The Spirit of Animal Healing) for a post-film talkback.
