Title:Ethics of Animal Care and Use In Veterinary Medicine at the University of Illinois
Author(s):Shakil, Somaiya; BTW 250-AI_06-01; Connor, Chase; Tsai, Ming-Tao
Animal Care and Use
Vet Med
Abstract:This project investigates how the veterinary department at U of I handles ethical questions. On the basis of literature research and surveys, the authors provide an analysis of the history and evolution of animal laws in the country and of the existing ethics enforcement agencies and procedures at the university specifically. The study finds that students have an important role in making ethical judgments for the Vet Med program at UIUC. One group of students who is dedicated to this role is the Society for Animal and Veterinary Ethics (SAVE). Their mission is to encourage and represent all views for ethical concerns on animal use in the program. Students have also expressed their disapproval of faculty’s alternatives to live subject research (LSR) or lack thereof in the Survey of University of Illinois Veterinary Students on Animal Use in Education of October 1999.
