    Donna was a dear sweet friend I met in college. We had lots of fun in and out of college. She was a blast to go out dancing with, gave compliments freely and gave of her time and help.
    I will miss her dearly.

    I met Donna when I became a Dynamite Specialty Products distributor in the early 90's. I learned so much from her that still is an important part of my healing/health philosophy and beliefs. I consulted with her many times by phone over the years for...  more

    Over twenty years ago, I chanced upon a naturopathic vet named Donna Mehan. I wanted to care for my kitty Lia in a more natural and wholistic way. Donna gave us immeasurable help, care and support for Lia, Koko and our now 18...  more

    The first time I remember calling Donna was when my husband’s dog was stung by a wasp and having seizures and his nose was swelling by the sting. In less than 5 minutes he stopped and the swelling went down!...  more

    I felt tremendous loss when I learned of Dr. Starita's passing. Her energy was so strong. Somehow I could always feel her energy in my corner, even after long periods of not connecting with her. She helped my cat, Poofy. She helped me. I attended...  more

    I AM SO SAD. No one can replace what Donna could do. She was magical. I first saw her at her lecture at the Clark County Horse symposium at least 20 years ago. It was then I learned about the "truth about vaccines". She helped me with 3 of...  more

    I first met Donna over thirty years ago.

    She has been a good friend to me and my pets over the years. She saved my young cat who had a bad virus. Saved a box turtle named Myrtle who had a leg infection, saved my dog Niki's eyes when he was on...  more

    I can no longer remember when I met Donna -- she was then Dr. Meehan -- and the tangled tale of all of my personal emergencies, her profound Intelligence, her boundless love for all is too long to tell. Her death is a loss for us all, but I know that she...  more
