An Introduction to Veterinary Medical Ethics Theory And Cases 2nd Edition PDF
An Introduction to Veterinary Medical Ethics Theory And Cases 2nd Edition PDF. The veterinary community and all people concerned with veterinary ethics and animal welfare join me in mourning the passing of Dr. Frank Loew, a titanic ﬁgure in veterinary medicine and a beloved friend to many.
The new edition reﬂects these concerns, and contains new material on farm animals, legal status and value of animals, alternative medicine, Aesculapian authority, ethics of critical care, and animal pain, distress, and happiness among other new discussions, which I hope will help the veterinary community engage these issues and, as Plato said, “Make a virtue of necessity.” An Illustrated Guide to Veterinary Medical Terminology Fourth Edition
As always, since I ﬁrst became involved with veterinary medicine almost thirty years ago, I appreciate and value how the veterinary community has embraced me and treated me as a colleague and as a friend. I am grateful to the thousands of veterinarians who have taken the trouble to write, call, or meet me in person to discuss ethical issues, and who have sent me large amounts of invaluable material I would otherwise have missed. I am also grateful to the veterinary students around the world who have demonstrated an unslakable thirst for discussions of ethics.
An Introduction to Veterinary Medical Ethics is recommended as essential reading for all veterinary students and practitioners, as well as those interested in general animal welfare.
