Dr. Marty Becker, “America’s Veterinarian,” has spent his life working toward better health for pets and the people who love them.
For close to 20 years, Dr. Becker has been the popular veterinary contributor on ABC’s Good Morning America. He is a founding member of The Dr. Oz Show’s Core Team Oz and a member of the Dr. Oz Medical Advisory Panel. In April 2012, the World Small Animal Veterinary Association named him the recipient of their annual WSAVA Hill’s Excellence in Veterinary Healthcare Award (also known as the Global Companion Animal Veterinarian of the Year). He is the Chief Veterinary Correspondent for the American Humane Association, and a member of the AHA Board of Directors. His special fondness for older pets has led him to a spot on the Board of Directors of The Grey Muzzle Organization, which is dedicated to helping homeless senior dogs.
He has written 22 books that have sold more than 7 million copies, including three New York Times best-sellers. He has been a contributor to Parade magazine, Reader’s Digest and AARP.com. Animal Radio® hosts him monthly as their Chief Veterinary Correspondent.
Dr. Becker is an adjunct professor at his alma mater, the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine, as well as at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University and the Research Center for Human-Animal Interaction at the University of Missouri’s College of Veterinary Medicine. He has lectured at every veterinary school in the United States, and has been named Companion Animal Veterinarian of the Year by the Delta Society (now Pet Partners) and the American Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Becker also serves as an honorary board member of Pet Partners and the Humane Society of New York.
He practices, when his schedule allows, at two veterinary hospitals in north Idaho because he loves veterinary medicine, pets and the people who care for them. He is also an active supporter of four animal shelters in north Idaho.
