Animal Welfare: Responsibility & Opportunity

Measuring and protecting an animal's welfare requires attention to its physical and mental health. The actions and choices of people impact the welfare of all domestic and many wild animals. Accordingly, the veterinary profession has great responsibility and tremendous opportunity to work with people and animals to ensure animals' good welfare.
