The Power of Wagging Tails

The healing powers of “man’s best friend” is the central core of work for Dawn A. Marcus, M.D.  She has shared the positive effects animals have on human healing in her book, The Power of Wagging Tails: A Doctor’s Guide to Dog Therapy and Healing.

Amazon tells us the book contains a“wide range of research that shows the therapeutic and healing power of dogs for people of all ages and with a wide range of health conditions”. 

Dr. Marcus is a neurologist and Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology at University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. “Working at the Pain Evaluation and Treatment Institute, Dr. Marcus is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology” (Amazon).
