Comments Sought on AVMA Euthanasia Guidelines
August 21, 2019 —
The AVMA is in the process of updating its AVMA Guidelines for the Euthanasis of Animals. This guidance represents best practices in humanely ending animals' lives when necessary.
Recent advances have made new techniques and equipment available since the last guidelines update in 2013, and the AVMA Panel on Euthanasia has drafted proposed changes to incorporate these findings.
The panel is now looking for AVMA members to review and provide comments on the proposed changes between now and August 31, 2019. AVMA members can find the proposed changes and comment submission form at https://www.avma.org/KB/Policies/Pages/Euthanasia-Guidelines.aspx avma.org/Euthanasia. Along with a full-text markup showing all proposed language changes, you'll also be able to read an executive summary that describes notable updates under consideration.
