The Healthy Pet Network is led by globally renowned, veterinarian, Dr. Alfred J. Plechner DVM, writer and creative genius, DavidSpangenburg and internet and business entrepreneurs, Terry & Michael Goldman . Our team dynamic is character based and ismotivated by the belief that we will make a difference. The sizeand impact of that difference depends on the individual energy weeach bring to our collective effort. Our guiding precepts are integrity,fairness and compassion. We are driven by an unconditional love and deep respect for animals and concern for their conditions. Wesupport “outside of the box” innovation and are firm believers inchallenging the status quo to be far better than it already is.
Dr Alfred J. Plechner’s greatest achievement lies in the discovery that a great many pet health problems are interrelated to the hormonal irregularities and immune system imbalances that are the hallmarks ofthe syndrome that Dr Plechner discovered and the Plechner Protocol,that he developed to determine and adjust these deadly imbalances, thatcause a number of catastrophic diseases in animals and people.
Dr Alfred Plechner was critically instrumental in ending the useof vacuum chambers for euthanasia and initiating the use of lethalinjections when absolutely necessary. He assisted in the passage oflegislation which halted interstate shipping of young and geneticallydamaged puppies and kittens.
Dr Plechner conceived and created Stonewood Meadows, his wildlife preserve in the Santa Monica Mountains. The preserve offered various governmental agencies an opportunity to relocate captured and injuredindigenous wildlife. Dr Plechner cared for, repaired and then relocatedthe healthy wildlife back into their natural environment thereby reducingthe amount of animals euthanized by the agencies. His battle with the California Coastal Commission over the creation of Stonewood MeadowsPreserve also set a major legal precedent in the ongoing WildlifePreservation vs. Recreational Usage legal debate.
Dr Plechner also formulated the recipes for the first; non-meat animaldiet, lamb and rice animal diet and limited antigen animal diets inthe world.
