Your opinions – and your expertise – matter. Recognizing that few topics inspire as much interest and passion as animal welfare, we are pleased to offer AVMA members the opportunity to provide comments on animal welfare-related policies that are under review or are being developed. The most recent list includes nine animal welfare-related policies or proposed policies that are being considered by the Animal Welfare Committee, which serves an advisory role to the AVMA Executive Board.
While the Animal Welfare Committee values AVMA member input, we’d like to remind you that the comment process isn’t intended to be a referendum on a particular policy. In other words, we’re not looking for your vote; we’re really interested in your substantive comments on topics of interest to you or in which you might have special expertise. And if you can provide appropriate citations from scientific literature or verifiable practice data in your comments, that will be even more helpful.
All the comments we receive are confidential and will not be made available for public review. The comment period ends March 1. Thanks in advance for your participation.
