Vet Futures Part 1: Animal Welfare
A brief excerpt from the report:
“Vets have a… crucial role in setting and monitoring standards in animal welfare, as well as in public and animal health, but do all vets have a mandate to speak out on animal health and welfare issues? And, if they don’t, shouldn’t they have? These are important questions.
We need to clarify the expectations we have of ourselves – and the public has of us – in terms of challenging any practice that undermines animal health and welfare.”
The report includes discussion on how to assess animal welfare, and veterinary and animal ethics
