Vietnam’s education sector and traditional medicine community are spearheading efforts to end the dog and cat meat trade – a significant step forward for animal welfare from two of the country’s most influential sectors.
Leaders of the traditional medicine community in Vietnam have denounced the use of dog and cat meat for medicinal purposes, marking a turning point for animal welfare in the country.
A roundtable discussion aimed at combatting the consumption and trade of dog and cat meat was convened by Soi Dog Foundation International and Social and Behavior Change Science Agency Intelligentmedia with the National Assembly of Vietnam last week. The event brought together nearly 50 parliamentarians, government officials, and specialists from across Vietnamese society to tackle this serious and urgent issue.
