Dr. Marty Goldstein, and Paw Paw's visit to the vet!

I’d like you all to meet my veterinarian, Dr. Marty Goldstein, of Smith Ridge veterinary Center in South Salem, NY. www.drmarty.com Dr Marty happens to be an exceptional practitioner of integrative medicine. What this means is that he combines the best of both conventional and holistic medicine and has, throughout the years, restored good health to scores of severely ill pets. Dr. Marty is very concerned about the alarming rise in pet diseases, particularly cancer. And he believes that poor diet and misuse of vaccinations are leading causes for many animal health issues. Dr. Marty began to understand this several years ago, after graduating from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, when his own personal, and chronic health problems, were alleviated by following a natural, non-toxic regime. With his newfound good health, he became a firm believer and was committed to healing pets holistically and teaching pet owners how to prevent diseases from occurring.If you are interested in learning more about a natural, holistic approach to your animal’s health, or to find a holistic vet in your area, Dr. Marty suggests you visit the Web site of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Associates www.ahvma.org. He cannot stress enough that pet owners really need to become more informed regarding their pet’s health.

Dr. Marty and his holistic practice has been written about in numerous publications.

For the past three years, Dr. Marty has been treating my beloved Paw Paw for a renal condition. Kidney disease is very serious and following a blood test, Dr. Marty felt it was necessary for Paw Paw to receive a natural intravenous drip to help his kidneys function better. So far, I’m happy to say that 12-year-old Paw Paw is responding well to his treatments. It’s very important to keep a condition like this in check rather than wait for something to be terribly wrong.
