Veterinary Ethics An Introduction

by Giles Legood

Veterinary Ethics An Introduction Synopsis

In the past few years the long-held concern with animal welfare in Britain has combined with an increased insterest in professional ethics. The book is the product of this concern, filling a gap in publications in both the UK and the US. There is evidence of the highest ethical obligations being placed on veterinarians; for example, The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons' declaration for joining members and their Guide to Professional Conduct. This book will give veterinarians a starting point to frame clear opinions on how to deal with the ethical dilemmas they face each day.
