My 6 Black Labradors had the good fortune to meet Dr.Marty Goldstein some 20 yrs. ago. It has been a continuing extraordinary learning experience since. Each one of my canine companions has benefited from Dr.Marty’s expanding wealth of knowledge and cutting edge research – focusing always on wellness and disease prevention; a comprehensive approach to supporting the body’s immune system.
His timeless published manuscript,”The Nature of Animal Healing” has been an ever present guide for me; a common sense approach to understanding the magnificence of both the canine/feline body and the human body as well. Over the years I have given copies of his book to folks who can use it as a guide to help them keep their animal pals healthy and well.
Dr.Marty, a visionary, is a traditionally trained veterinarian from the prestigous Cornell University. He embraced Integrative Medicine so many years ago – utilizing alternative therapies such as acupuncture, qigong, metabolic nutritional analysis, the latest in nutrition, non-toxic cancer remedies, as well as conventional techniques like digital ultrasound and digital xray technologies, to keep animals healthy.
He helped me and others realize the many liabilities that result from over-vaccination of our animal companions.
My journey with Dr.Marty, and his team of 3 veterinarians and staff who carry on his work, make it possible for these options and curative techniques to be available to a greater number of companion animals.
People I know have traveled far and wide for the therapies dispensed by Dr.Marty and his collaborative team at Smith Ridge.
My journey with Dr.Marty and his team has been an invaluable, continuing education experience!
