Dr. Brett Bard BVSc MRCVS

I live to actively develop a tangible sense of compassion and empathy by expanding my and others’ awareness of animal sentience by promoting non-violence and recognizing the inherent value of all living beings.

At a young age I recognised my vocation to care for animals. After graduating from the Faculty of Veterinary Science at Onderstepoort in 1990 I continued to broaden my capacity for healing, now manifest through my work as a holistic veterinarian. This naturally led to my involvement with humane education and other transformative community initiatives.

I advocate a vegan lifestyle that begins with nurturing the soil and cultivating organic vegetables on my permaculture market farm in the Great Karoo. Here I happily explore and share ideas that elevate consciousness for healthy and sustainable living.
