Marty Becker

Pet Complex, P.A.

Dr. Becker, known as “America’s Veterinarian,” was the popular veterinary contributor on ABC's "Good Morning America" for nearly 20 years. 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 its 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 for The Grey Muzzle Organization, which is dedicated to helping homeless senior dogs. He has written 25 books that have sold more than eighteen million copies, including three New York Times best sellers. Dr. Becker is an adjunct professor at his alma mater, 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 on the board of American Humane, World Vets, Grey Muzzle Organization and Pet Partners along with three local shelters in Northern Idaho. He practices, when his schedule allows, at two veterinary hospitals in northern Idaho because he loves veterinary medicine, pets, and the people who care for them and is an active supporter of four animal shelters in northern Idaho.

Julie Reck

Practice Owner

Dr. Reck is a veterinarian with passion for creating new communication avenues with pet owners. She believes that enhancing the communication capabilities of the veterinary profession will foster a stronger connection with pet owners and create an enjoyable professional environment for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and receptionists.

In 2010, Dr. Reck published Facing Farewell, a book dedicated to providing pet owners with information to assist them with making difficult end of life decisions for their pet. Facing Farewell was awarded the Maxwell Medallion of Excellence for the best book in pet care and health by the Dog Writers Association of America at the 2010 Westminster Dog Show.

In 2011, Dr, Reck opened the Veterinary Medical Center of Fort Mill. The practice quickly flourished and is now home to 4 full time associate veterinarians.

In 2016, Dr. Reck launched a revolutionary approach to veterinary wellness care called the Healthy Pet Happy Pet Experience℠. It is a two step approach that divides the wellness visit into a one-on-one medically focused veterinary consultation and then separate seminars on key topics of pet care: grooming, nutrition, and training. Dr Reck is passionate about positive culture development in veterinary practices.
