Directed by Cindy Meehl.
A founding father of integrative veterinary medicine, Dr. Marty Goldstein and his colleagues have created a mecca for holistic care, offering hope to previously hopeless animals (and their owners). Combining conventional remedies 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 Dog Doc offers an immersive view into a seldom seen world to paint a vivid picture of the dedication and joy of being a veterinarian.
Presented in association with the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival – “Best of the Fest” – Vermont Tour.
“This isn’t a deep dive into what makes one man tick, but a multilayered exploration of the love and devotion that animals inspire, whether the critter is your companion or your patient. Contained within the stories is a visionary approach to caring for animals and ourselves, a way of more truly sharing the planet rather than trying to control it.” – Hollywood Reporter
