A Letter from Dr. Marty

Hi, this is Dr. Marty. I hope you’re all safe and healthy during these challenging times.

I’ve received many requests for advice on pet health issues, so firstly, I’d like to thank you for reaching out and entrusting me to advise on the health of your companion.

Please know that every animal has different needs and requirements, and in order for me to help, I would have to establish a proper patient-doctor-client relationship, then run specific tests that would only be possible with an in-person consultation. Because of this, I will not be able to address requests at this time.

Currently, I’m on sabbatical after 47 years from clinical practice to be able to educate on a more global level and to finish writing my second book. If your pet needs veterinary help, my #1 advice for you would be to seek an integrative veterinarian in your area for a hands-on consultation. This way, the veterinarian will be able to address your pet’s specific needs and closely monitor their progress.

You can find a comprehensive list of all US integrative veterinarians at ahvma.org. If you’d like to visit Smith Ridge Veterinary Center, the clinic I helped create, my incredible associates see patients from all over North America and offer comprehensive telephone consultations involving your own veterinarian when appropriate. Please visit smithridge.com to learn more.

Thank you so much for your understanding. I hope you and your furry friend stay safe and healthy.

Dr. Marty
