Julia Szabo was a nationally-recognized pet reporter when her dog Sam collapsed from osteoarthritis. Diligently researching how to restore his quality of life, she discovered Vet-Stem, a service that provides cutting-edge regeneration therapy for pets, using stem cells harvested from animals' own tissue. Just hours after receiving IV and intra-joint injections, Sam began aging backward--which left Julia wondering why this simple, effective treatment was not available for humans. Julia suffered from chronic inflammatory bowel disease, and after witnessing Sam's astonishing recovery, she set out on a curious quest: to be treated like a dog by a doctor as competent as her vet! After a four-year wait, Julia became the first American to be successfully cured of a perirectal fistula with stem cells derived from her own fat. With this amazing true story of how a pack of shelter dogs she rescued from death row came to save her life, Julia hopes to inspire and inform readers about exciting healthcare options available to them and their cherished animal companions.

More than just a medical treatment, the ancient Eastern practice focuses on maintaining a sense of equilibrium through a combination of diet, herbs, meditation, massage, and crystal therapy. From the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, and ether) to the power of the mind, each facet of Ayurvedic healing is discussed with an eye to increasing pet owners’ understanding of dogs’ natural balance and creating a stronger bond between canines and humans.
