Dr. Greg Martinez, DVM
Veterinary medicine has been a great job and my passion for thirty plus years. My true reward is helping pet owners keep their loved ones healthy and happy. After 20 years of practice, I began to notice that many chronic problems were not being helped by medication. No matter how many combinations of medications I used, I kept seeing the same skin, ear, and bowel issues over and over again. Once I learned to teach my clients about better feeding practices, I had more success making my patients feel better and recover from medical problems.
Veterinary care has become very expensive, and many pet owners have a hard time finding the money to treat medical problems. I’ve found that a healthier diet can really help pet owners avoid common medical problems and may even cure them. Skin problems, ear infections, bowel issues, obesity, seizures, and bladder issues, can often be treated by changing the type of ingredients, calories, or moisture in the diet. For example, the simple act of adding fish oil may make the coat softer, the skin healthier, and even repel fleas. (Just 1-3 fish capsules daily!!). Simple practical nutritional advice like that has resulted in much healthier patients. Healthier patients require much less veterinary care, less medication and less expense !
That’s why I wrote Dog Dish Diet and Feed Your Pet to Avoid the Vet. I wanted to teach pet owners how to choose commercial food,supplement with healthy people food, or home cook to avoid allergies and keep their pets healthier. If you would like to keep your pet healthier and happier, cure chronic skin, ear, bowel, stomach, or other medical issues, and save some money, better nutrition is less expensive then constant medication and repeated veterinary visits. My goal is to help you stay out of the veterinary hospital with simple, practical advice. Dog Dish Diet gives you an overview of commercial diets, healthy human food you can safely feed dogs, and a few home crocking pet food recipes. Feed Your Pet to Avoid the Vet explains how you can easily and economically cook for your dog and cat!
