Extinction is Forever

My son and I created this painting and had it finished by Michael Meeker from the Museum of Natural History in LA, probably 30 years ago. It is 7 feet wide and 5 feet tall. It hung on the wall of my hospital for 30 years and it was to remind people that they should be thankful, as I am, to have the presence of an animal and be given the privilege of loving and caring for that animal.

Purpose of this Site

This website has been designed as an informational, medical website for PET OWNERS. The purpose of this website is to provide the PET OWNER with up-to-date, understandable, medical information and to share every PET OWNER'S discoveries and experiences that will help other PET OWNERS and their pets survive our ever changing world.

The information that is shared on this website for PET OWNERS, in no way, pre-empts the information the PET OWNER receives from their veterinary medical professionals. Hopefully this website will provide the PET OWNERS with a better understanding and insight on how to help their pet live a longer, happier, healthier life. Please remember that I am peer reviewed by my patients, and NOT my profession.


Because of the changing genetics and the detrimental changes that are occurring to our fragile environment, it has become vitally important to try to avoid any subtle medical changes that may indicate the beginning of disease in ourselves and in our pets.

For those of you that are already aware of these changes, and have found a better way with dealing with these changes, the time has come to share your health care successes with the rest of world, in hopes of helping the rest of the world avoid some of the subtle medical diseases that may occur in the future.

For those of you that I have helped make a difference for both you and or your pet over the past many years, I would appreciate it if you would share your success stories with the social media and the internet.

My reason for asking this, is that your stories and experiences will let people know there are better diagnostics and better medical treatments, for both themselves and for their pets.

As we have found out, merely treating the effects of disease and not the cause of disease, should never be the final answer.

Hopefully this is something you can do, because sharing your stories and experiences with the social media and the internet, will make an important difference for those that are looking for better way to remain heathy for both themselves and for their pets.
