GWIC updates / 5 September 2019: Feed alert

Feeding alert: prohibited substances

The Commission recommends participants avoid feeding their greyhounds knackery meat, or meat that is not fit for human consumption.

This type of meat may contain residues of prohibited substances used to treat livestock shortly before their death and may lead to a positive sample in or out of competition.

Offal such as liver or kidneys may have increased concentrations of these drugs and feeding this to racing greyhounds should be avoided.

The Commission recommends participants consider feeding ‘cleaner’ meat that is human consumption grade, chicken, roo-meat or alternatively a high quality commercial dry food.

If you have any concerns relating to feed, please contact the Commission on 1800 951 755.
