NHQ's Raw Meat Diet Policy

For information sharing ~

A number of concerns have been raised at the local and provincial levels of St. John with regard to the release of the national "raw meat" policy, and I wanted to assure everyone that we (Council and your Provincial Therapy Dog Team) are working with National HQ and our National Vet. consultants to review the policy to be fair to all dogs in the program while still being responsive to potential risks.

We hope to have more to report to you on this shortly.

NHQ's Raw Meat Diet Policy


For immediate information sharing ~

Please advise Branches and Community Services Units that National HQ has put the recently released Raw Meat policy on hold as of today pending further review...this means that no action on this issue needs to be taken locally until we have received further direction/clarification.

Thanks
