mixed feelings

The clinic staff's compassion for dogs that everyone else has given up on is touching, but the movie is problematic. We see two successful (so far) courses of treatment, and a few others are mentioned, but we don't know overall success rates. Given the clinic's mix of traditional and holistic approaches, how can one determine in any individual case which treatments worked and which ones had no effect? Dr. Goldstein even acknowledges at one point that applying scientific rigor to his methods is not his thing. I doubt that this movie will persuade anyone who is not already a believer.

A Common Sense Approach to Animal Care That's Not Common Enough

Integrative medicine for animals at its best. This was the opening night film for The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival profiling the veterinary practice of Dr. Marty Goldstein and his team. The film follows individual cases as well as the life of Goldstein. As an animal lover some of the scenes of cryogenic surgery were difficult to watch however the outcomes were a testament to minimally invasive treatment. The theme of Goldstein's struggle to be accepted by the mainstream veterinary community runs throughout; frustrating to witness as animals thrive when other vets had given up. Not only do I endorse this film for its excellence but it's very important message to anyone who has a four legged family member. And not incidentally for two legged as well.

If you love dogs and care about their long term health, you will love this film.

Dr. Goldstein is paving the way for the future of Veterinary Medicine and in this brilliant documentary by Cindy Meehl, we are shown the advances Dr. Goldstein has made over the years with homeopathic treatments combined with traditional medicine to enhance and lengthen our beloved dogs lives. This is a must see when the film is released in Fall of 2019. (Viewed at the Nantucket Film Festival, June 2019)
