NIH Stops Therapy Dogs From Visiting Sick Children

“The Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health has suspended its dog therapy program because of the government shutdown, according to John Burklow, spokesperson for NIH.

Burklow said the dogs, which pay visits to patients in the hospital, including children with cancer, have to seen by veterinarians, and a “team” on staff made the decision to suspend program.

“A vet needs to evaluate the dogs, and given that there is a 25 percent reduction in staff (furloughed), we focus our activities and staffing on the care of patients already at our hospital,” Burklow said.”

    It’s pathetic to kick the sick and especially sick kids.
    You surely have one messed up political system and weak Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health administrators to allow this to happen this.
    What’s next, banning babies being born?
