It is essential today that veterinarians and animal scientists learn
animal welfare basic concepts and their main applications. The objective of this
review is to reflect on issues related to animal welfare teaching, with emphasis
in the Brazilian context, discussing the challenges and improvement
possibilities. Although recent, animal welfare teaching in Brazilian universities
has shown fast growth lately, allowing the perception of some national
characteristics in animal welfare teaching. Research is especially useful for
animal welfare teaching, because it is based on a knowledge field under recent
construction. The main challenges for animal welfare teaching in Brazil are
discussed. In introducing animal welfare teaching to their programs, universities
improve graduates adequacy to present time working demands and contribute
to the advancement of the ethics of human-animal relationship.
