 Veterinary Medicine: Endangered Dogs and Cats 

The solution is to identify the hormonal defect and correct it. This is what I did for Georgette, Miles, Buster, Bob, Cherry, and Candy, all of whom recovered from their illnesses. After years of treating thousands of dogs and cats with serious and chronic health problems, I want to share the same program that I use so successfully with pet owners and their veterinarians, so they can recognize hormonal defects, correct them, and restore health to ailing animal companions.

About the Authors

Alfred J. Plechner and Martin Zucker have collaborated to write Pets at Risk with its breakthrough information. Dr. Plechner combines his thirty-five years of veterinary clinical knowledge with Zucker’s twenty-five years as a writer specializing in health and medicine. They first worked together in 1986 when they co-authored Pet Allergies: Remedies for an Epidemic, which the Seattle Times described as "a superb, provocative wake-up call to American pet owners." Dr. Plechner is a graduate of the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. He practices at the California Animal Hospital, which has been ranked among the top 1 percent of animal clinics in the United States. His research and clinical experiences have been published in veterinary and medical journals, including Medical Hypotheses, Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients, and Progressive Health News.

In the mid-1980s, Dr. Plechner co-developed the first successful commercial lamb and rice diet, a new hypoallergenic pet food diet that was widely copied. He later developed a new generation of hypoallergenic foods that are currently sold by veterinarians nationwide.

Martin Zucker was a former foreign correspondent with Associated Press, who has since written, co-written, or ghostwritten more than ten books. His specialty is health and medicine. His five previous books on pet health include The Veterinarians’ Guide to Natural Remedies for Dogs and The Veterinarians’ Guide to Natural Remedies for Cats (Three Rivers Press/Crown, 2000). His most recent books are Preventing Arthritis (G. P. Putnam & Sons, 2001) and Natural Hormone Balance for Women (Pocket Books, 2002).
