Dr. Morgan published her first book “From Needles to Natural: Learning Holistic Pet Healing” in 2014. In the book, she shares her journey from traditional to holistic veterinary medicine to show pet owners the differences between marketing ploys and actual good health. She dispels myths about traditional pet care and teaches pet owners the benefits of feeding and treating an animal holistically. Her second book, “What’s For Dinner Dexter? Cooking For Your Dog Using Chinese Medicine Theory” is co-authored with Tonya Wilhelm and teaches more in depth food therapy using Chinese theory, and includes many recipes for home cooking. She has also published a series of youtube videos called “Food is the Foundation of Life” where she teaches about different food formulations, energetics of food, and formulating pet diets as therapy for the disease. Her third book “Canine Kitchen Capers” is a humorous cookbook for pets and their people.
In her spare time, Dr. Morgan can be found riding horses, traveling and speaking at pet events, or walking on the beach with Hue Grant. Together they are very active in Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and English Toy Spaniel rescue, including transporting, fostering and providing tender loving care to abandoned, neglected, and abused animals.
