NOTE FROM TED: Please consult a veterinarian before modifying your pet’s diet. We’ve flagged this talk for falling outside TEDx’s curatorial guidelines because it seems to oversimplify the discourse surrounding pet lifespan and raw food diets, which are currently not recommended by the FDA and AAHA. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf
Are we doing enough for our pets? Rodney Habib is a voice for dogs around the world. After one of his dogs, Sammie, was diagnosed with Cancer, Rodney went on a journey to discover why? What he learned along the way will surprise you and leave you with an idea that will change the way you look at your animals.
Rodney Habib is an award winning pet nutrition blogger, podcast/radio show host, magazine writer, and, most importantly, a pet parent and advocate.
His popular website and blogs posts have allowed thousands of dog owners worldwide join him in his search for answers and to share the discoveries he has made in natural dog care and trying to get his pets to ‘live forever’!
Rodney believes strongly we all need to be the change we wish to see in the world, a value very much in alignment with our event and one we are proud to support and share for you all.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
