We have moved!

Dear colleagues and friends,

I am excited to announce that we have launched a new website that includes both an updated, revamped blog and links to some other activities that I have ongoing. It encompasses many of my goals and messages related to human health, animal health, food safety, and public health. Many students will be helping and learning as we journey down this road.

As of February 1, 2013, our website is!

This blog will no longer be updated and it will be removed soon, so please re-subscribe to this new one.

Additionally, beginning in March, I will be publishing my first article as a blog columnist for Every Thursday, a new entry will be posted under a new column called “The Gentle Vet.”

The Gentle Vet and Hurd Health blog will be working together to address pertinent topics in food safety and animal health. The blog at this location will be a bit more technical and provide some scientific back up for topics on Meatingplace. It will also be a forum for further food safety discussions. The Meatingplace blog will address issues with a less technical feel and will include some different issues, such as why we treat animals the way we do.

Thank you for your continued support and encouragement and helping us discuss the scientific perspective on many animal health and food safety issues. We hope you will enjoy the new website and the Meatingplace column. Share them with your friends!

Thank you,

Dr. Scott Hurd
