I read Dr.Plechner's first book "Pet Allergies", and through his help and the help of our veterinarian, my dog lives a healthy life now. A few years ago, I had lost hope after other treatments had not worked to correct my dog Sophia's immune problem; which manifested as allergies, severe skin problems, ear infections, diarreah, and bacterial infections. After learning about Dr. Plechner's treatment to correct the imbalance and restore the immune system, I asked my vet to test Sophia for Endocrine-Immune Imbalance. My vet graciously agreed in order to help my dog get better. There is a very detailed chapter in "Pets at Risk" for veterianians and owners who wish to test (and treat) Endocrine-Immune Imbalance. There is also a chapter for breeders wishing to breed only healthy animals and how they can go about doing so.
Dr. Plechner discovered and researched (for three decades) a connection he found among animals with immune disfunction. It involves a common hormonal imbalance, due to a defective adrenal gland, that directly affects the immune system.Read more ›
He is working in a clinical practice & not an ivory tower, but that is not a reason to keep him from publishing, especially if he has spent all this money on testing like he says he has, & if he has years of client data also, he should be able to put together a good journal article that will be replicable.
Like I said before, his stuff may be vaild, but he should be able to back the stuff up better than he does in the book.
This is an absolutely enthralling read for anyone who cares about their pets' health. Vets have significantly improved their abilities to diagnose diseases, but are still grappling with treating the result versus treating the underlying cause. As an owner who has dealt with issues ranging from cancer to skin allergies to Addison's disease, I found Dr. Plechner's observations and insights providing "Aha!" moments.
I've already ordered books for each of my vets, in order to discuss whether this treatment could work with some long-term issues in some of our pets.

I would recommend this book, it really does make sense! This book is an easy read. Too bad more vet's don't know about this and practice it. Read morePublished 5 months ago by J. McArthur
Great, informative book! I think it would be useful information for all veterinarians to have, and plan on giving my vet a copy.Published on May 1 2012 by Iris
