W.C. Fields has a few famous one liners. “I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food” is one of my personal favorites. But, it’s his “Never work with animals or children” that has always intrigued me. I was never sure whether he disliked tikes and terriers or if it was a mindful creed to avoid being upstaged. Regardless, it’s a rule that simply doesn’t apply to Dr. Ruth Roberts. An expert in integrative veterinary care, a mix of the best of western veterinary medicine and holistic Chinese treatments, Dr. Roberts is using video to help her clients (and anyone else for that matter) improve the health of their pets. She admits that many people come to her door because they are looking for options… some perhaps desperate for them.

Of course, when you prescribe daily Tui Na massage therapy for your client’s arthritic Afghan you have to give them resources…and she’s doing just that [ Sun Dog Cat Moon – Tui Na Massage ] in an instructional series of videos that will be available on her website. Not that she doesn’t get upstaged….you just can’t compete with a guy like Clyde.
