Description

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. hat she found in her work with animals here was that the modern pet society of eating processed pet foods, or the same garbage that humans ate, the same drugs that humans used for many of the same diseases and illnesses, that animals were really suffering and many were becoming resistant to the drugs and remedies.  So, she went back to her roots and thought about ways to help these urban animals live better lives. As she shared many testimonies about different animals, like Cranky the Cat, her stories were about helping the animals get back to natural diets, fresh air and moderate exercise.  When she went back to basics, using what nature has provided for us to help the animals, they would get better.  Her message: If you mess with nature, it may come back to bite you. Dr. Liza Schneider’s dream was to always be a vet. Coming from South Africa and growing up with the wonderful wild array of animals of her native country, she was in awe of the strength and ability for animals in this country to survive, and sustain optimal health in the arid, dry and harsh landscape.  This fascination would become the basis for her work later in life when she moved to New Zealand, and set up a holistic vet practice. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
