About Us

Dr. Rosemary Manziano DVM, CAC comes from a family of veterinarians. She is a graduate of the University of Pisa, Veterinary Medical School in Pisa, Italy (1987). During her time in Europe, Rosemary resided in Holland assisting in the treatment of large animals. Upon returning to the United States, Dr. Manziano completed the last two years of Veterinary School at the University of Missouri and then went on to the Animal Medical Center in New York City for additional training.

Dr. Manziano began her study of Homeopathy in the spring of 1997. Rosemary’s zeal to heal her patients naturally has brought her to India and South America attending courses in Homeopathy and Herbal medicine. She continues her education in Advanced Homeopathic practice today. Dr. Manziano offers Animal Chiropractic services to her patients as well as Cold Laser Therapy and acupuncture for animals.

Giving Back

Dr. Manziano’s Gentle Earth will donate a portion of our proceeds to Soi Dog Foundation, a non-profit that was created in Thailand to provide a humane solution to managing the stray population, provide medical needs and educate the culturally effected Asian population on the cruelties of the meat trade. We believe their efforts to educate will plant the seeds of compassion and help bring an end to needless suffering.

Thanks to the overwhelming support of the Soi Dog Foundation, the meat trade has been almost completely wiped out in Thailand and they continue to campaign for an end to the trade in other Southeast Asian countries where it is prevalent.

Soi Dog Foundation is partnered with dog rescue organizations in the United States. Supporting the Soi Dog Foundation is our way of contributing to the solution to create a greener earth and bring back balance to our precious ecosystem.

Mission Statement

Dr. Manziano has worked hard with her team to produce a product that is natural and made with earth friendly glass bottle and cork. This toothpaste is natural and has many vitamins such as Taurine, an essential amino acid needed to maintain heart health and immune system function normally not found in pet vitamins.

She hopes to one day have all the products in sustainable packaging. For now, the vitamin supplements are in recyclable plastic jars but one day will be in a paper /wax packaging that is solar degradable.

The Dream is to one day open a center for rescue animals small and large where people can come to be with nature.

We will offer organic food that we will grow in green houses, a cafe to relax with music that will lift you up and make you smile. Children will be able to come visit and be with animals and nature, learning to respect these beautiful souls and the earth we love.


“I have always been resistant to the idea of brushing a dog’s teeth. It seems beyond my scope of duty to my dog’s care. But, Dr Manziano made the valid point that if the dog’s teeth were brushed it would avoid the need for a “dental” appointment, which involves giving the dog anesthesia and can be very costly.

After she demonstrated the technique, I bought Dr Rose’s Gentle Earth Toothpaste. I started doing the dreaded job. It actually went very well! It only takes a few seconds for a quick brushing on each side. I did it daily for a month to start and now have tapered to three days a week, M-W-F.

I brush and comb Mocha (standard poodle) every day after our walk in the woods. I started doing this because I needed to look for ticks. The grooming takes about 5 minutes, I added the teeth brushing to the end of that routine and she loves the taste of Dr Rose’s edible toothpaste.”

I am so happy I found Dr. Rose’s Gentle Earth toothpaste for my dog. Charlie is 13 and had to have surgery to extract teeth due to plaque run amok. I tried other things before, drops in his water, dental treats and other toothpastes. After brushing his teeth for about 3 months approximately 5 times per week, I have noticed that his plaque is just about non-existent. If I can avoid the cost and the trauma of having his teeth removed, I will gladly brush his teeth before bed. Plus, he actually looks forward to it and likes the minty taste!

Truffles & Blue, both Newfoundland rescue’s, absolutely love Dr. Manziano “Pooch Paste!” While one is getting their teeth brushed, the other is trying to lick it. Thank you for this amazing product!”

Good morning Dr. Rose, Well, you are correct. Your toothpaste works and is the best I have ever used…and I have bought just about every toothpaste on the market. I supply shear in between their lip and gums. Every few days I put organic coconut oil on a cotton pad and wipe the tartar off. After using one container the tartar is actually coming off in chunks…not to mention my boys breath smells great when cuddling. Both my babies teeth are much improved. I so appreciate your product since due to health issues and old age I will not chance having their teeth cleaned by the vet. I just ordered two more and will always have a back up on hand in case we have another shutdown, God forbid. Thank you for your product and dedication to help our pups. I appreciate you Dr. Rose.
