2004 Nomination for the College Prize of The Australian College of Veterinary Scientists
The College Prize (download criteria) is awarded to a veterinarian who has made an outstanding practical contribution to veterinary science or practice in Australia or New Zealand without the support of an academic environment and to whom finance and facilities are limited. The Awards Committee will consider the applicability of the contribution in the broad field of veterinary science.
In 2004 Dr Richard Malik and Dr Douglas Bryden AM, with immense generosity and maybe some personal and professional risk, nominated Tom Lonsdale for The College Prize of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists (ACVSc). The nomination stood for a period of three years until either the award was conferred or until the time elapsed.
In 2004 a Queensland veterinary dentist was awarded the prize. In 2005 there were no other candidates despite which the ACVSc declined to award the prize. By leaving the College Award vacant the ACVSc revealed their antipathy to Raw Meaty Bones the concept and Raw Meaty Bones the book.
