Our guest today, Dr. Richard “Doc” Holliday has been a member of the sustainable and Organic community for over 40 years as a holistic vet and is the author of A Holistic Vet’s Prescription For a Healthy Herd. He studied under some of the early pioneers of the Organic movement, and is kind enough to share some of that knowledge with us today.
