Overview

In her youth, Donna Kelleher, DVM, spent her Saturday mornings picking stones from horses’ hooves and learning about plants. While digging through the earth and soaking medicinal leaves, the lessons from her teacher began taking root. “Roasted dandelion is the best medicine,” said Iris, the neighborhood healer, before administering a straw-yellow tea to her cat, Tinkerbelle.

Since those Saturday morning lessons in nature, Kelleher has spent nearly two decades exploring what it means to find true healing, combining her conventional veterinary training with holistic treatments. What she’s learned along the way is that animals need inspiration to make choices; as these stories prove, the resiliency of these pets have shaped her life as much as her treatments have shaped theirs.

A reminder of the physical, emotional, and spiritual strength in us all, The Proof Is in the Poodle embodies the restorative power of hope.

“Donna Kelleher, DVM, is changing the way we practice veterinary medicine, just as Andrew Weil, MD, has revolutionized human health care.”
- Brenda Peterson, author of Build Me an Ark: A Life with Animals

“Donna Kelleher is not only a gifted, talented, and compassionate veterinarian, her gifts also spill over into her sensitive writing.”
- Allen M. Schoen, DVM, author of Kindred Spirits: How the Remarkable
Bond Between Humans and Animals Can Change the Way We Live

    Dateline 1968, Sacramento, CA: My best friend had 2 horses. Most

    Dateline 1968, Sacramento, CA: My best friend had 2 horses. Most days after school we would go for a ride and exercise the horses bareback. Ken's was a beautiful quarter horse, mine was an older sway-back gray mare. Bucky and I had some meaningful conversations in that pasture before heading out for a full-tilt gallup along the river levees.

    Jump ahead 40 years, Seattle, WA: Now married with 2 kids (Woody the Wonder Dog and Scout). Two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels with many, many health issues. We finally found Donna Kelleher. A true miracle worker. She quickly figured out various food allergies that created many of their issues. A saint among healers. Always looking at the whole dog, not just fixing the specific symptoms.

    One more jump to present day: Donna has just published her latest book. I LOVE this book. The stories are heartfelt, personal, interesting, educational. She has done a great job of weaving in her personal story with the story of some of the animals, and people, of her life. I am so glad I read this book. My feeling of high admiration for her skills as a doctor and healer are now so much deeper. How often does a doctor let you in behind their professional persona/facade. This book does that with Donna. Her calling is not just a "job", but a way of life and being. Jeff is a very lucky man to have her as a life partner.

    I wish I had read this book before having my chats with Bucky.

    The Proof is in the Poodle is a book about finding and following

    The Proof is in the Poodle is a book about finding and following the path of healing, compassion and hope. The story leads the reader through childhood discoveries, the magic of plants and the healing power of holistic medicine- the modalities that heal the body as well as the soul. The theme that resonated deep in my foundations was that of questioning the way things are commonly done, not just in medicine but in life. Dr. Donna consistently follows her own inner compass and it guides her through a life's work of honesty and integrity. As a veterinarian who has had my own struggles with the 'status quo' of conventional education and practice, I am honored and humbled by having a colleague of Dr. Kelleher's caliber. This book is for anyone who cares about animals and anyone who has struck their own path in the world -who has found the bravery and commitment to follow their heart in the face of resistance.
