Veterinarians must speak with one voice on this issue...

Awareness is growing of the adverse impact of extreme breeding in dogs. If we work together, our influence will be stronger so we are delighted to support a Position Paper from our colleagues at the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) and the Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations (FECAVA).

WSAVA President Dr Walt Ingwersen says: “To bring about lasting change, we need commitment and collaboration between veterinarians, breeder associations and other stakeholders on a global basis. We are ready to play our part and look forward to working with our colleagues in the FVE and FECAVA and our member associations to deliver on the recommendations they make.”
