 AVMA solicits member comments on welfare policies

Posted on January 15, 2012
 

The AVMA is soliciting comments from members on nine animal welfare policies under review by the Animal Welfare Committee, which serves in an advisory capacity to the Executive Board.

The Animal Welfare Committee seeks substantive comments from AVMA members who have a particular interest or special expertise relevant to the nine policies.

Members may submit comments at www.avma.org/issues/policy/comments through March 1. The Web page provides links to each policy up for review. Clicking on "Submit a comment" across from each policy title brings up a page with background information, questions to consider, and a link for members to log in to the members-only portion of the website to submit a comment.

The AVMA will post a summary of members' comments and the Animal Welfare Committee's response to the input following the conclusion of deliberations regarding each policy.
