In 2010, Eric O’Grey weighed over 300 pounds, had type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and took over $1,000 in medications per month. When his doctor told him he would be dead within five years unless he got his health under control, Eric found a naturopathic doctor (Dr. Preeti Kulkarni) to help him. She put him on a whole-food, plant-based diet and encouraged him to adopt a dog from an animal shelter. He went to his local Humane Society and asked for an obese, middle-aged dog.
