  • PROVET HEALTHCARE INFORMATION - Legislation and Animal Owners
    within a population There are many documented examples of the inadequacies of current legislation in it s attempts to protect the welfare of animals and this is one of the reasons why there is a proliferation of Charities concerned with animal welfare issues In the United Kingdom most of Western Europe the United States of America and other so called advanced countries there are numerous laws designed to protect animals and to control their nuisance to society Yet at the same time there is evidence of continuing cruelty to animals of all types despite the impression that is sometimes given that we are a society of animal lovers Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in the UK regularly report its most successful years for prosecutions under the Protection of Animals Acts in their history Is this a reflection of societies retrograde progress in this area is it a reflection of increased activity by the RSPCA to prosecute offenders or have the Courts altered their attitude to such cases brought to them resulting in more prosecutions Whilst ignorance of a law is no defence for an offender it is important that the public as a whole do know about the laws that exist and particularly those which directly affect them Many animal owners that I speak to simply do not know what laws exist though they often share common sense attitudes or have moral standards that are in line with current legislation The purpose of this section is to draw animal owners attention to the existing legislation in the United Kingdom and increase awareness and understanding about the issues that it covers In the United Kingdom animal welfare is covered by four types of legislation 1 Legislation to protect animals from cruelty The Animal Welfare Act 2006 The

  • PROVET HEALTHCARE INFORMATION - Dissatisfied with your Veterinarian
    that the last thing your veterinarian wants is for your pet s health to be poor Veterinarians have spent a long time training to become clinicians and their primary motive for working in the profession is to improve animal health and welfare He or she really does want to treat your pet successfully first time and to keep it healthy On the few occasions when things go wrong it is a difficult time for everyone owners vets and other staff such as nurses and receptionists Try not to get upset Many cases that I am aware of which have gone all the way to Court have escalated simply because of poor communication between the veterinarian and the client and vice versa Once tempers fray or confidence is lost the fighting gloves are off and everyone s lives are disrupted until the matter is resolved Below I offer some of my own suggestions as to how best to handle such a situation but I sincerely hope that you never have to go all the way down the road What should I do FIRST If you are not happy about the progress or the outcome of your pet s treatment the first thing you should do is Arrange a face to face meeting with your veterinarian Veterinary practices are busy places so it would be best if the meeting could be held outside surgery hours Use this meeting to discuss openly and frankly your concerns BUT be prepared professional people in general often do not take kindly to having their professional judgment or activities questioned Try to be matter of fact avoid excessive emotional outbursts and try not to get angry A smile can often defuse a potentially explosive situation Smiling does NOT mean that you will be any less firm in expressing your concerns The meeting must not be arranged just so that you can let off steam There must be a purpose and your objective must be to achieve that purpose If you believe you are entitled to an explanation of events an apology financial compensation or something else be clear about it and ask for it If possible plan in advance what you will say if your veterinarian s response does not satisfy your objectives What options do you have Do you intend to stay with the practice or move your custom elsewhere Do you intend to pursue the matter further If so say so Planning in advance will help you to stay calm and in control OK I spoke to my veterinarian but I am still not happy with his her response what next If following a head to head meeting with your veterinarian you are still unsatisfied ask to speak to the most Senior Partner Director or owner of the practice If your veterinarian is the most senior person ask if there someone else in the practice who you can talk to When personalities are changed it is sometimes easier to discuss matters calmly and reach agreement

    they are kept at a lower temperature than they require they may suffer from malnutrition and disease So it is important to keep the environmental temperature within the normal range for the species using a thermostat and heaters including Under gravel heaters Low watt incandescent spot lights Ceramic heating lamps Aquarium heaters for water All exposed heat sources eg lamps should be inaccessible to the amphibians because direct contact can cause serious burns to the skin Because amphibians have skin that will dry out quickly in dry conditions most require an environment with high humidity and this can be generated by providing a humidifier an artificial waterfall or by spraying water regularly into the environment A clean fresh supply of uncontaminated aerated water must be available at all times It must be free from potential toxins including Heavy metals lead mercury often present in natural water sources near Industrial areas Nitrites often present in natural water supplies near agricultural land Chlorine fluorine often added to water supplies intended for human consumption Pesticides often present in fresh water sources draining from agricultural land Ammonia Stagnant water Water contaminated with blue green algae often occurs in lake water following a drought If necessary natural water supplies should be filtered to remove all impurities for example by using Under gravel filters External filters Sponge filters Regular air changes are important with a recommended rate of at least 1 2 air changes per hour So adequate ventilation needs to be provided through the lid of the tank Exposure to light and ultraviolet light is necessary for healthy amphibians and this is best provided by natural sunlight gaining access through non absorbing screens in the tank lid Ultraviolet light does not pass through glass or plastic Alternatively ultraviolet light can be provided by using special
