Book Description

Sept. 12 2003
"Pets at Risk" is an informative book on the breakthrough clinical discoveries by veterinariam Al Plechner,. For more than 35 years he has treated tens-of-thousands of cats and dogs in his Los Angeles veterinary clinic, and has identified a widespread, but unrecognized deficiency in the endocrine-immune system of cats and dogs. These deficiencies result in symptoms ranging from allergies to serious immunological diseases and cancer. Over that time he has spoken to dozens of veterinarians who report seeing more and more animals unresponsive to conventional treatment.

Dr. Plechner, DVM, has developed a program for treating pets facing endocrine-immune deficiencies and hormonal imbalances. This book is written for the layperson to understand the root of disease and symptoms animals suffer. The author hopes that the reader will work with his or her veterinarian in using the treatment program. This book requires a working partnership between the pet owner and the veterinarian since a part of the treatment includes pharmaceuticals or natural supplements as well as a healthy diet and careful attention to food allergies.

Great, informative book! I think it would be useful information for all veterinarians to have, and plan on giving my vet a copy.

1.0 out of 5 stars no authentication- Oct. 9 2006
Dr. Plechner makes some interesting points, and they may be valid ones, but if they are I would like to see some articles of his own cited in his book. As far as I can tell, he toots his horn about all this "research" he's done, but there is not ONE backup of his statements in his book except for testimonials. His, own BTW. Why should his clients spend money on testing if they all end up on thyroid medication and steroids? He tests, and then also ignores the results if they don't fit into his agenda & blames it on "malabsorption" if a test is outside his expectation, then meds the animal anyway.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stresses the responsibilities pet owners face April 3 2004
Veteranrian Alfred J. Plechner (a practicing graduate from the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine with thirty-five years of clinical work experience), draws upon his years of experience and considerable expertise in Pets At Risk: From Allergies To Cancer, Remedies For An Unsuspected Epidemic spotlights just how endocrine-immune imbalances can cause or exacerbate multiple medical disorders in our beloved animal companions. Offering practical advice for helping imbalanced dogs and cats with supplements; natural remedies for a variety of possible ailments; diet replacement programs, and so much,more, Pets At Risk also stresses the responsibilities pet owners face, as well as exploring the implications these groundbreaking discoveries have for we humans. Pets At Risk is essential, accessible, "reader friendly", and very strongly recommended for personal reading lists and community library Pet Care reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
