2014, 12/03 – Animal Wisdom with Linda Bender

Linda BenderHow is it that pets are able to travel thousands of miles to reunite with their beloved humans? How can dogs detect cancer with up to a 98 percent accuracy rate, and foresee epileptic or diabetic seizures in their owners? In Animal Wisdom, veterinarian and animal advocate Linda Bender offers a wealth of amazing research-based evidence indicating animals have deeply perceptive—even extrasensory—abilities.

A passionate, animal advocate and educator, Dr. Linda Bender’s love of the natural world began in her childhood backyard. From orphaned deer to blue jays prematurely bumped from their nests, animals in distress somehow found a way to her loving arms. Her innate rapport with animals inspired her to earn a doctorate in veterinary medicine.

During the fourteen years she spent living in England, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, Linda’s veterinary work included the rescue, rehabilitation, and protection of wildlife, often in remote areas. Working with zoos in Southeast Asia, she treated animals rescued from the wildlife trafficking trade and helped reintroduce them back into their natural habitats.

Her interest in the healing arts led her to open the Mind the Gap Wellness Center in Cincinnati and she also started one of the first pet therapy programs through the Ohio Mental Health Association. She is also co-founder of the nonprofit organization, From The Heart, whose proceeds are funneled to various animal charities that directly benefit animals and their habitats.
