Welfare of animals under veterinary care

Welfare of animals under veterinary care

Appropriate and timely veterinary care is one of the fundamental welfare requirements for animals who are dependent on human guardianship. Within the provision of veterinary care, great attention must be given to minimizing the stress that an animal suffers. Stress over which an animal has no control is severely detrimental to the emotional well-being of the individual, and compromises all the processes that we endeavor to support with veterinary care: healing, recovery from illness, and physiological stability.
