MVMA Animal Welfare Statement: June 17, 2011

The Montana Veterinary Medical Association and its members believe that it is through the support and promotion of animal welfare that animals can be reasonably used and enjoyed by humans. These uses can include companionship, service, recreation, education, exhibition, work, food, fiber, and research. Animal welfare is a priority of the MVMA and through its Welfare Committee will continue to develop guidelines and standards to address the care, welfare, and humane treatment of animals. Veterinarians are advocates of animal welfare and should continually strive to support it through advocacy education and scientific research.

Animal welfare is a human responsibility and animals under our care shall receive proper nutrition, health care (including disease prevention), and freedom from unnecessary fear, pain, or distress. Animals shall be treated with respect and dignity throughout their lives and, when necessary, provided a humane death. The welfare of animals must also include environmental protection and management with consideration of the biology of the species.
