Animal Advocates of Arizona (AAAZ) Message Board › HSVMA Comments on Euthanasia to AVMA
El Mirage, AZ
After taking the HSVMA (Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association) webinar today (The Veterinarian's Role in Recognizing, Reporting and Preventing Animal Cruelty), I found this reported on their website as of today, 12/10/09. HSVMA/HSUS submited recommendations to the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) to support more humane euthanasia methods.
See links below fyi.

p.s. I'm happy to share the webinar handout with you if you would like a copy. The topic is applicable to all animal hospital staff as well as those who come in contact with animals and their guardians (shelters, rescue, etc.)
