Dog Medicine

How My Dog Saved Me from Myself

by Julie Barton

eBook
An honest and deeply moving debut memoir about a young woman's battle with depression and how her dog saved her life
A New York Times Bestseller


"Dog Medicine simply has to be your next must-read." —Cheryl Strayed
At twenty-two, Julie Barton collapsed on her kitchen floor in Manhattan. She was one year out of college and severely depressed. Summoned by Julie's incoherent phone call, her mother raced from Ohio to New York and took her home.
Haunted by troubling childhood memories, Julie continued to sink into suicidal depression. Psychiatrists, therapists, and family tried to intervene, but nothing reached her until the day she decided to do one hopeful thing: adopt a Golden Retriever puppy she named Bunker. Dog Medicine captures the anguish of depression, the slow path to recovery, the beauty of forgiveness, and the astonishing ways animals can help heal even the most broken hearts and minds.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
