The Dog Doc Documentary 

A founding father of integrative veterninary medicine, Dr. Marty Goldstein and his colleagues at the Smith Ridge Veterinarian Center in South Salem, NY have created a mecca for holistic care, offering hope to scores of previously hopeless animals and their owners. Combining conventional medical training with cutting edge alternative therapies, Dr. Marty's deeply empathetic philosophy offers a vital example of how improving overall health rather than merely treating disease is transformative for all living things.

Cindy Meehl founded Cedar Creek Productions, LLC in 2008. She began work in 2009 on the documentary feature as director and executive producer. BUCK premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2011 where it won the coveted Audience Award and continued to win many distinctive awards and honors, including the 2011 Oscar shortlist.

The Dog Doc goes behind the scenes to capture the full drama of Dr. Marty and his colleagues' life-changing commitment to wellness and the astonishing results they achieve.
