**Updated information: At time of publication of the original podcast, this information was not public.  The OAVT has entered into a contract with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) to assist in animal specimen collection and submission for testing on behalf of Public Health Units in the Province of Ontario. RVTs are invited to put their skills to work by becoming a member of the Rabies Response Program (RRP) team!  Remuneration is provided.  NOTE: The OAVT RRP is specifically for the use of the Public Health Units to facilitate testing in cases of potential human exposure to rabies.  Veterinarians and the public cannot call the RRP directly.  Cases of potential domestic animal exposure to rabies should continue to be reported to OMAFRA, and OMAFRA will work with local veterinary staff to manage these cases and facilitate testing when necessary.


RVTs interested in more information on the OAVT RRP can call 1-844-872-2437 or email RRP@oavt.org.

Veterinary clinics interested in more information on working with OMAFRA in cases of domestic animal rabies exposure are invited to contact Dr. Maureen Anderson at maureen.e.c.anderson@ontario.ca or Dr. Michelle Brown at michelle.brown@ontario.ca
