Defending pet welfare at European level

Problematic genetics and breeding of companion animals, the internet trade of pets and responsible ownership are all part of the ‘companion animal’ action plan currently being discussed by the FVE/UEVP working group on animal welfare. An overview was presented at the general assembly of the Union of European Veterinary Practitioners in Tallinn yesterday by the WG chairman Borut Zemljic. FECAVA is represented by Monique Megens in this working group.
