Issue 49 - Practising equine veterinarians – please help



Raelene Harrison at the Melbourne University has developed an online survey for practising equine veterinarians to complete.

The purpose of the research is to investigate whether an equine veterinarian recognises an “ethical trilemma”, the main factors that impact their decision and analyse the impact that decision has, or has the potential to have, on equine welfare.

The research project will consider the well-being, moral stress, regulatory and insurance consequences of the “ethical trilemma” on equine veterinarians.

It is hoped that this research will benefit the veterinary profession and equine welfare.
