Animal Welfare

Animal welfare complies with the desire of the prevention of unnecessary animal suffering. It means how an animal is coping with the conditions in which it survives. An animal is in a good state of welfare if it is safe, healthy, comfortable and well nourished, able to express innate behavior, and if it is not suffering from unpleasant states such as fear, pain, and distress. Animal welfare requires disease prevention and veterinary treatment, appropriate shelter, nutrition, management, humane handling and humane slaughter. Animal welfare refers to the state of the animal; the treatment received refers to animal care, animal husbandry, and humane treatment.
