“Poses penetrating questions about what passes for health care today in the United States, for people and their pets alik … .A visionary approach to caring for animals and ourselves.” –Hollywood Reporter
The film follows a founding father of integrative veterinary medicine, Dr. Marty Goldstein and his colleagues in South Salem, New York, who 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. The latest from Cindy Meehl (BUCK), THE DOG DOG follows Goldstein and his staff’s high-stakes interactions with animals and those who love them. (U.S., 2019, 101m)
