Understanding the Role of the Attending Veterinarian Under the Animal Welfare Act. “FREE” Presentation available.


USDA Animal Care has posted on its website a presentation that explains the role of attending veterinarians under the Animal Welfare Act.

Proper veterinary care is vital to ensure that regulated animals receive humane care and treatment, so Animal Welfare Act regulations require regulated entities to have a full-time veterinarian on staff or to contract with an attending veterinarian to develop a written program of veterinary care.

“The role of the attending veterinarian is critical, and this presentation thoroughly outlines the full extent of that role,” said Dr. Nora Wineland, director of APHIS’ Center for Animal Welfare.

The presentation is available here, under the Educational Materials subheading.
