Join local author Donna Kelleher on her journey into holistic veterinary medicine. Each chapter in her book highlights a new animal and a new natural method of treatment and raises philosophical questions about animal care and welfare. In The Last Chance Dog, Donna Kelleher offers advice on everything from vaccinations and pet-food shopping to affordable, easy-to-administer treatments for allergies, digestive problems, urinary tract infections, pain, hot spots, itchy skin, fear, and anxiety. Inspirational and nothing short of miraculous, the stories of ailing and recovering animals—and the people who love them—are as unforgettable as they are true. Donna Kelleher lives and practices holistic veterinary medicine in Bellingham. She lives in a yurt with her dogs, tortoises and husband, Dr. Jeff Blake who is also a veterinarian and acupuncturist. Her two horses still live outside in the barn. Her goal is to focus on local native herbs and help animal welfare causes in years to come and she has been working on a new book.

Donna Kelleher, D.V.M. is changing the way we practice veterinary medicine, just as Andrew Weil, M.D. has revolutionized human health care.
