Special Session

Animal Welfare and Ethics in Veterinary Education: at University and After

Veterinary 2016 welcomes participants, visitors, delegates and exhibitors from all over the world to the glorious city of London, United Kingdom. Our conference is focusing on a wide array of topics including veterinary research, veterinary medicine, food animal, veterinary forensics, avian and exotics, animal reproduction and genetics, animal welfare, clinical veterinary, veterinary economics, recent developments, veterinary care and management and animal models and testing. Veterinary 2016 focuses on the recent developments taking place in the field of veterinary. We aspire that this veterinary event would help to converge private industry in areas such as marketing of animal-health commodities, monitoring of animal health in large scale animal-production programs, and biomedical research.

Animal welfare complies with the desire of the prevention of unnecessary animal suffering. It means how an animal is coping with the conditions in which it survives. An animal is in a good state of welfare if it is safe, healthy, comfortable and well nourished, able to express innate behavior, and if it is not suffering from unpleasant states such as fear, pain, and distress. Animal welfare requires disease prevention and veterinary treatment, appropriate shelter, nutrition, management, humane handling and humane slaughter. Animal welfare refers to the state of the animal; the treatment received refers to animal care, animal husbandry, and humane treatment.
