Preserving the Bond and Preventing Cruelty: The Veterinarian’s RoleJanuary 21, 2021 12:00 PM to January 21, 2021 1:15 PM
PT – Pacific Time
Join Emily Lewis, senior staff attorney with the Animal Legal Defense Fund as she presents on the veterinarian’s role in preventing animal cruelty.
When a low-income client presents a severely neglected animal to a veterinarian for treatment, the doctor faces a difficult conundrum: is it their duty to protect the animal from continued neglect, or is it their duty to help the person who may be struggling financially to care for their animal? In states where veterinary reporting of animal cruelty is mandatory, the stress this ethical dilemma can put on a veterinarian is significant. Throughout this webinar, the presenters will discuss the veterinarian’s role in both preserving the human-animal bond and addressing animal cruelty resulting from poverty.
