Abstract

Probably as a sign of the times, the World Veterinary Association's Animal Welfare Committee has published its conference proceedings for the first time. The papers cover the topic from most angles: ethology, legislation, laboratory animal welfare, transport of animals, public policy, human and animal relationships, cultural attitudes to animals and stress evaluation. Most presentations offer a review of the subject but some topics are covered in the light of new findings, including alternatives to animal testing, pig behaviour, heat stress in dairy cattle in South Africa and sedation and analgesics. The WVA policy statement on animal welfare, well-being and ethology, as adopted at the conference, is included.
