An honest and deeply moving debut memoir about a young
woman’s battle with depression and how her dog saved her
“Dog Medicine simply has to be
your next must-read.” —Cheryl Strayed
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.
