The DOG DOC is feel good movie! Dr. Marty Goldstein celebrates integrative medicine to aid man and mans best friend! In 2019, THE DOG DOC made its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and focuses on what is missing from modern medicine for both pets and humans. Now available for rent or purchase on Amazon Prime Video! 

As a pioneer of integrative medicine, veterinarian Dr. Marty Goldstein has been called everything from “maverick” to “miracle-worker.”

Attracting four-legged patients from around the world, Dr. Goldstein’s practice, Smith Ridge Veterinary Center, provides holistic treatment for animals after other vets have given up hope. Director Cindy Meehl (BUCK), goes behind the scenes at Smith Ridge to capture the full drama of “Dr. Marty” and his colleagues’ life-changing commitment to wellness and the astounding results they achieve. Filmed over 2½ years, Meehl’s unobtrusive camera highlights the vulnerability of her subjects – canine and human – while tracking each animal’s progress.

THE DOG DOC combines the touching stories of families with the hard science of integrative care. By casting an intimate lens over this unique world, this documentary truly shows the healing powers of integrative wellness, compassion, and hope.

About the Film

Kathy (Golden Globe-nominee Hong Chau, DOWNSIZING; HBO’s “Watchmen”), a single mother, travels with her shy eight-year-old son Cody (newcomer Lucas Jaye), to Kathy’s late sister’s house which they plan to clean and sell. As Kathy realizes how little she knew about her sister, Cody develops an unlikely friendship with Del (Golden Globe, Tony-winner and longtime acting legend Brian Dennehy, in one of his final leading roles) the Korean War vet and widower who lives next door. Over the course of a summer and with Del’s encouragement, Cody develops the courage to come out of his shell and, along with his mother, finds a new place to call home.
